Women’s Group on the FBI Investigation Into Brett Kavanaugh

WASHINGTON - Statement from Shaunna Thomas, co-founder of UltraViolet Action, a leading national women’s group:

“The results of the FBI investigation into Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations against Brett Kavanaugh are for lack of a better word: bullshit.

“Investigations are always stacked against survivors, but this investigation was designed to gaslight America from the start. It was intentionally designed to find nothing. And Republicans got the exact results they manipulated the system to get. Republicans rushed this investigation through, limited its scope and hampered it at every turn in order to cover for Kavanaugh and themselves.

“This makes it crystal clear to every single decent person in this country: a vote for Brett Kavanaugh is a vote saying that you do not care about sexual assault survivors, you do not believe them, and you have no interest in pretending anymore that you do. Your daughters -- and sons -- will know this is who you really are.”
