Brett Kavanaugh’s Letter to the Judiciary Committee on Monday 9/24

September 24, 2018

The Honorable Charles Grassley

Chairman

Committee on the Judiciary

United States Senate

135 Hart Senate Office Building

Washington, D.C. 20510

 

The Honorable Dianne Feinstein

Ranking Member

Committee on the Judiciary

United States Senate

331 Hart Senate Office Building

Washington, D.C. 20510

 

Dear Chairman Grassley and Ranking Member Feinstein:

 

When I testified in front of the Senate three weeks ago, I explained my belief that fair process is

foundational to justice and to our democracy.

 

At that time, I sat before the Senate Judiciary Committee for more than 31 hours and answered

questions under oath. I then answered more questions at a confidential session. The following

week, I responded to more than 1,200 written questions, more than have been submitted to all

previous Supreme Court nominees combined.

 

Only after that exhaustive process was complete did I learn, through the news media, about a

36year-old allegation from high school that had been asserted months earlier and withheld from me

throughout the hearing process. First it was an anonymous allegation that I categorically and

unequivocally denied. Soon after the accuser was identified, I repeated my denial on the record

and made clear that I wished to appear before the Committee. I then repeated my denial to

Committee investigators—under criminal penalties for false statements. All of the witnesses

identified by Dr. Ford as being present at the party she describes are on the record to the

Committee saying they have no recollection of any such party happening. I asked to testify

before the Committee again under oath as soon as possible, so that both Dr. Ford and I could

both be heard. I thank Chairman Grassley for scheduling that hearing for Thursday.

 

Last night, another false and uncorroborated accusation from 35 years ago was published. Once

again, those alleged to have been witnesses to the event deny it ever happened. There is now a

frenzy to come up with something—anything—that will block this process and a vote on my

confirmation from occurring.

 

These are smears, pure and simple. And they debase our public discourse. But they are also a

threat to any man or woman who wishes to serve our country. Such grotesque and obvious

character assassination—if allowed to succeed—will dissuade competent and good people of all

political persuasions from service.

 

As I told the Committee during my hearing, a federal judge must be independent, not swayed by

public or political pressure. That is the kind of judge I will always be. I will not be intimidated

into withdrawing from this process. The coordinated effort to destroy my good name will not

drive me out. The vile threats of violence against my family will not drive me out. The lastminute

character assassination will not succeed.

 

I have devoted my career to serving the public and the cause of justice, and particularly to

promoting the equality and dignity of women. Women from every phase of my life have come

forward to attest to my character. I am grateful to them. I owe it to them, and to my family, to

defend my integrity and my name. I look forward to answering questions from the Senate on

Thursday.

 

Sincerely,

 

Brett M. Kavanaugh
