Letter: Kavanaugh should be innocent till proven guilty

Letter: Kavanaugh should be innocent till proven guilty



If unprovable allegations of sexual misconduct over 30 years ago can override overwhelming testimony of Brett Kavanaugh’s high moral character, what can happen to you and me?  Are you willing to give up “Innocent until proven guilty” for yourself?

Sixty-five women who knew Kavanaugh in high school vouched for his character. Two women who had dated him in high school and college vouched for him.

Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein had received the allegation in July and turned it over to the FBI, who declined to pursue it. Why didn't Feinstein bring up this allegation during the normal course of the judicial hearings? Both the FBI and Feinstein did not believe the allegation.

Christine Blasey Ford passed a lie detector test. However, memory is tricky and very often faulty, especially among those who are most convinced of their good memory. The accuser scrubbed her social media pages and online profiles. This questions her character and what she wants to hide.

If allegations are unverifiable, we must rely on our common sense.

Run the alleged sexual misconduct back in your head, but instead of Kavanaugh insert Barack Obama.  Would you find him guilty?
