Insightful #BelieveWomen Posts on Social Media

Capturing some great posts about the Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. #Kavanaugh testifies tomorrow. Crazy way to handle these accusations which are part of basically Kavanaugh’s job interview. As his potential employer, I’d be running like the wind to get away from him. But also, there are 5 major different accusations against Kavanaugh, each of which has other related witnesses. Just talking to the first woman, with no witnesses and no plans to talk to other people, is completely insufficient for any investigation.
