Pricey Sen. Joe Manchin,
You’re a Democrat. Granted you’re a Democrat from West Virginia, which makes you suppose it’s important to watch out about being that, however nonetheless. As a Democrat, it’s essential to perceive one thing. Whenever you say that Brett Kavanaugh has a “proper to clear himself” of credible sexual misconduct fees, that is not the most efficient assertion you possibly can be making proper now.
Neither is the complete quote: “All that is extraordinarily critical and we take it very critical, however once more these are allegations which can be made they usually have to come back forth and show their statements and he has a proper to clear himself.”
Here is what would really assist on this occasion. Say “these girls should be heard.” Say, “an FBI investigation would assist Kavanaugh clear himself.” However do not erase the ladies. Do not low cost them. Do not decrease the braveness and the sense of obligation that it took for Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Ms. Deborah Ramirez to come back ahead.
As a result of it can by no means damage you in West Virginia, as a Democrat, to respect girls.
Thanks for listening.
