Delegate Bordallo joins Dems urging postponement of Kavanaugh proceedings

Guam Delegate Madeleine Z. Bordallo joined 64 Democratic members of Congress in sending the following statement to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell:

“Once again, we are urgently requesting that Senate leadership postpone any proceedings on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court until a thorough FBI investigation into the multiple allegations of sexual assault and misconduct has been completed."

The statement was prepared and released before the testimony of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Judge Kavanaugh before the Judiciary Committee.

"We have heard credible allegations from three women – Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez, and Julie Swetnick – who bravely shared their traumatizing experiences of sexual assault and misconduct at the hands of Judge Kavanaugh," the statement continued.

"We urge you to give these allegations the respect and seriousness they deserve. Anything short of that is an insult to women and girls everywhere and sends a chilling message that survivors should not come forward because they will not be believed."
