Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and his staff have received a deluge of threats in recent days after several women came forward to accuse Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.
The messages, which Grassley’s office shared with The Daily Caller News Foundation, track with a stream of threats and violence directed toward Kavanaugh, his accusers, and Republican lawmakers.
Here are a few examples of phone calls the office has received, which were provided to Town Hall by staff:
-“I hope you get raped so you can understand what that woman is going through.”
-“You’re a disgusting excuse for a human being, and I don’t know how you can live with yourself. I hope you never have children because they’ll be just as worthless as you are.”
-“You’re racist trash.”
-“Senator Grassley doesn’t have a spine and neither do you b*tch.”
-“I just wanted to call and tell you that you are a piece of sh*t and Senator Grassley is a f*cking piece of sh*t and he can’t die from a heart attack soon enough.”
-“I feel really sorry for women like you – outside of your office you’re probably disturbed by this but apparently you have a job to do.”
Grassley and his office have been working tirelessly since last week to ensure Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing Kavanaugh of sexual assault during a party in high school nearly 40 years ago, has a safe and fair venue to tell her story.
Furthermore, Grassley and his team have bent to nearly every demand made by Ford and her lawyer and attempted to accommodate the accuser. All in an efforts to proved that safe and fair venue for her to tell her side of the story.
In addition to Ford’s allegations, Deborah Ramirez told The New Yorker that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her while at a Yale University party during the 1983-1984 academic year. She claimed she was also made to inadvertently touch his penis during the alleged interaction.
And on Wednesday, attorney Michael Avenatti released a sworn statement from his client, Julie Swetnick, who alleged Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge would spike drinks at parties and participate in “gang rapes” of inebriated women. She also alleged that Kavanaugh and Judge would “drink excessively” and would become “overly aggressive with girls … not taking ‘No’ for an answer.”
