This is what happens when you hold witch trials. These are the types of people who show up.
A newly released transcript of a Tuesday afternoon interview between Brett Kavanaugh and staff attorneys on the Senate Judiciary Committee revealed a previously undisclosed accusation that Kavanaugh raped someone on a boat in Rhode Island in 1985. The accusation was passed to the Judiciary Committee through the office of Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.).
The Senator from Rhode Island, doing his job, trying to smear Kavanaugh.
Kavanaugh categorically denied the accusation, saying that he had never even been on a boat in or around Newport, Rhode Island, where the assault was alleged to have occurred.
“This is just completely made up,” he told the congressional attorneys.
That’s good enough for NBC News.
“Dear Pentagon,” the individual tweeted, “Please save my country from the parasite that occupies the White House[.]”
“Trump is guilty of manslaughter and Russia knows,” the account tweeted.
On Tuesday evening, the individual behind the account recanted the rape accusation via Twitter:
“Everyone who is going crazy about what I had said I have recanted because I have made a mistake and apologize for such mistake,” the individual wrote.
Or, as the Washington Post might put it, there are now 5 accusers.
