Larry Hogan agrees with Donald Trump that Brett Kavanaugh doesn’t need to be investigated
Larry Hogan flat out refused to use his power to support a woman who says that Judge Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her.
The Baltimore Sun reported that Hogan “ruled out involving the Maryland State Police in any investigation of allegations that US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl more than 30 years ago in Montgomery County. Baltimore Sun, 9/21/18]
“The Maryland State Police will not be getting involved in this,” he said. Hogan did not elaborate on his reasons. [Baltimore Sun, 9/21/18]
Now, a second woman has come forward and both allege the assaults took place in Maryland; So Hogan could order an investigation, but he has refused
“Ford, now a psychology professor at California’s Palo Alto University, told The Washington Post that an intoxicated Kavanaugh corralled her into a bedroom at a Maryland party when she was around 15 and Kavanaugh was about 17, held her down on a bed, tried to undress her and held his hand over her mouth when she tried to scream. She said she got away when a companion of Kavanaugh’s jumped on him.” [Washington Post, 9/17/18]
The Sentinel reported:
Kavanaugh’s letter came after additional allegations against him surfaced this weekend, from his time in college and in high school. Government investigators confirmed Monday they’re aware of a potential second sexual assault complaint in the county against former Georgetown Prep student and Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh.
While investigators weren’t specific and spoke on background, they said they are looking at allegations made against Kavanaugh during his senior year in high school after an anonymous witness voluntarily came forward to speak with them this weekend.
One issue police will have to determine is whether the alleged assault described by Ford occurred in Chevy Chase, Maryland or in Washington D.C. “If it is in D.C. we would not have jurisdiction,” Manger said.
Larry Hogan pretends he’s not like his republican allies in Washington, but when it comes to listening to women. He’s exactly the same.
There could be as many as three women who allege Kavanaugh committed sexual assault or misconduct against them.
The Washington Post reported that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford “wrote a confidential letter to a senior Democratic lawmaker alleging that Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her more than three decades ago, when they were high school students in suburban Maryland.” [Washington Post, 9/16/18]
The New Yorker reported that Deborah Ramirez alleges that when they were both Freshmen at Yale in 1983-84, “she remembers Kavanaugh had exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party, thrust his penis in her face, and caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away.” [The New Yorker, 9/23/18]
The Hill reported that attorney Michael Avenatti claims “he has ‘credible information’ about more sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, said Monday that he expects his new client will appear for an on-camera interview” by Wednesday. [The Hill, 9/24/18]
