Monica Lewinsky just added her two cents to the Kavanaugh allegation story.
On Sunday, Lewinsky posted a tweet applauding the woman who made a sexual misconduct allegation against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh for coming forward.
i am so sorry this woman was outed without consent. i’m sorry for what she endured as a teenager. and thank her for her bravery stepping forward. https://t.co/6LI9zXFnMt

The woman who wrote the “letter” that has turned the SCOTUS hearing on its ear is Christine Blasey Ford.
After submitting her initial letter, Mrs. Ford had not planned on coming forward.
She entrusted the information to her local congresswoman, but it appears as though she was betrayed.
Several news outlets claimed to have been leaked her name and they were getting ready to go forward with the information.
Rather than be “outed” by the media, Ford chose to come forward on her own.
After revealing her identity, Ford stated, “These are all the ills that I was trying to avoid.”
“Now I feel like my civic responsibility is outweighing my anguish and terror about retaliation,” she added.
Now, Democrats are demanding the Kavanaugh hearing be delayed so these allegations can be further investigated.
Kavanaugh, for his part, has completely and vehemently denied any wrongdoing.
Not only that, dozens of women that went to high school with him during the time of the alleged incident have written their own letter defending Kavanaugh’s character.
While some Democrats are taking the letter at face value, just as Lewinsky did, far more believe this is just another delay tactic being employed by Democrats.
Republicans have been adamant these hearing are going to move forward as planned.
If the vote happens along party lines, as is expected, Kavanaugh’s hearing will move the floor on Thursday.
