Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) condemned the sexual-misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in a fiery speech on the Senate floor Monday, calling the accusations a “shameful smear campaign.” “I want to be perfectly clear what is taking place,” he said. “Senate Democrats and their allies are trying to destroy a man’s personal and professional life on the basis of decades old allegations that are unsubstantiated and uncoordinated… This is what the so-called resistance has become. A smear campaign pure and simple, aided and abetted by members of the United States Senate.” He also claimed that all of the facts are “quite clearly on one side,” and insisted that Kavanaugh will receive a vote on the Senate floor “up or down… in the near future.” Ahead of a public hearing with Kavanaugh and accuser Christine Blasey Ford, another woman came forward with a sexual-misconduct allegation involving Kavanaugh Sunday evening.
