Senator Donnelly weighs in on Kavanaugh’s sexual assault allegations

Senator Joe Donnelly (D-IN) released a statement to ABC57 on Sunday evening in regards to the sexual assault allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

Donnelly’s office said the following:

“Senator Donnelly takes his responsibility to consider Supreme Court nominees – regardless of the president making the nominations – very seriously. With both Judges Garland and Gorsuch, and now with Judge Kavanaugh, Senator Donnelly has evaluated Supreme Court nominees based on their understanding of the law, their ability to be impartial, and their judicial temperament. As such, he is continuing to review these serious allegations, and any and all information related to Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination.”

Christine Blasey Ford  told her story to The Washington Post in an article published Sunday.

Kavanaugh denies these allegations.

Some Senators have called for the delay of Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination amid these allegations.
