Trump faces kickback after claiming Kavanaugh protesters financed by Soros

Column default

President Donald Trump on Friday tweeted a baseless conspiracy theory, in which he claimed the sexual assault victims who are protesting against Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination on Capitol Hill are actually paid protesters bankrolled by George Soros, a Jewish billionaire who donates to Democratic causes. Don't fall for it! "Also, look at all of the professionally made identical signs". Paid for by Soros and others. Flake on Friday voted in favor of moving Kavanaugh's confirmation forward after indicating Thursday he was satisfied with the FBI's probe.

After the majority of potential swing votes ultimately sided with Kavanaugh in a final 50-48 vote on Saturday afternoon, the nominee was sworn in that day.

Ana Maria Archila, one of the two women who confronted Flake and is pictured above, refuted the president's claim that she is just a "rude elevator screamer" who is paid to make Senators "look bad" on MSNBC, saying she showed up to the Capitol Hill "with hundreds of people that my organization and others brought so that we could tell our stories".

However, despite the speculation by Grassley and the President, there is no evidence to suggest Soros' direct funding toward the protests.

Passion, chaos as Kavanaugh confirmation vote nears
Kavanaugh denied claims by former schoolmate Dr Christine Blasey Ford that he attempted to rape her during a party in the 1980s. Republicans need a simple majority of 51 to invoke cloture and move forward with the final vote tomorrow.

Allegations that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted Dr. Christine Blasey Ford while the two were in high school led to both sides delivering testimonies in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee last week. He said that the elevator confrontation "struck a chord" with him and he found the tension between Republicans and Democrats worrisome. As a judge, Kavanaugh wrote that a president should be immune from investigation, leading some to suspect that Trump picked Kavanaugh to absolve himself from the expanding Russian Federation inquiry.

"We are doing something incredibly important by sharing our pain, by sharing one of the most traumatic experiences of our lives", she said. "The pain, the trauma, and the rage that I expressed when I spoke with Senator Jeff Flake in an elevator were my own, and I held it for more than 30 years to protect the people I love from it", she said.

Meanwhile, in yet another anti-Kavanaugh action, a small number of protesters gathered outside McConnell's house on Friday holding cans of beer and signing "What do you do with a drunken justice?" "His accusation that we are paid protesters is wrong".
