“I think every organization with lawyers or connections to lawyers should reach legal luminaries in the target states* to engage lawyers around this. Not bars or formal associations, just a flood of lawyers — lawyers who know most about what’s at stake for the legitimacy of the Supreme Court. Every lawyer watching that hearing yesterday was or should have been disgusted. They should rise up today and demand their Senators at least press pause.” ~ Leslie Proll, former NAACP LDF policy director

American Bar Association: Delay Kavanaugh until FBI investigates assault allegations


Thanks to NARAL Pro-Choice America and Common Cause for the following information.

Friends,

Today, the Senate Judiciary Committee will vote to move Brett Kavanaugh forward, with all Republicans voting to advance him, to a full Senate vote for the beginning of next week. We can stop this lying, anti-choice extremist who has sexually assaulted multiple women from ascending to the Supreme Court, but we need your help. Call your senator NOW.

Dial 1-844-515-2798 to call your senators and demand they vote NO on Brett Kavanaugh.

After Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s courageous testimony yesterday, no senator should be pushing for a vote today on Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination to a lifetime seat on the highest court in the land.

The Senate Judiciary Committees’s plan to vote this morning is reckless and irresponsible. There is not enough information for any senator to provide informed advice and consent.

Call your senator, who sits on the Committee and ask them to hit the brakes on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation. 1-844-515-2798

Here’s what you can say: My name is [NAME] and I’m calling from [TOWN] to urge you and your fellow senators to hit the brakes on Kavanaugh’s confirmation until the FBI can investigate the multiple serious allegations against him.

Christine Blasey Ford’s courageous testimony highlights the critical need for an independent FBI investigation, and for the Committee to subpoena other witnesses, including Mark Judge, to shed more light on the events that Dr. Ford detailed. Other women have come forward with serious allegations against Judge Kavanaugh. Those, too, should be investigated and Judge Kavanaugh should provide his responses under oath.

When Anita Hill testified 27 years ago, it came after an FBI investigation. Although the hearings included some additional witnesses, others were blocked. That proceeding was a grave injustice to Anita Hill.

This nomination faces other critical deficits that subvert the Senate’s constitutional duty to provide advice and consent. Millions of pages of Judge Kavanaugh’s records have been withheld from the Senate and the eyes of the American people. A cloud hangs over President Trump, with the ongoing Department of Justice investigations into the electoral process and foreign interference. Questions arising from these investigations may be headed to the Supreme Court.

Rushing through with a vote on Judge Kavanaugh under these circumstances threatens to subvert the integrity and independence of the United States Supreme Court, and consequently, the rule of law.

We deserve all the facts — call your senator and ask them to hit the brakes on Kavanaugh’s confirmation. 1-844-515-2798

Here’s what you can say: My name is [NAME] and I’m calling from [TOWN] to urge you and your fellow senators to hit the brakes on Kavanaugh’s confirmation until the FBI can investigate the multiple serious allegations against him.

Together we can stop this!
