Spokesman for GOP on Kavanaugh nomination resigns; has been accused of harassment in the past

Source: NBC


WASHINGTON — A top press adviser helping lead the Senate Judiciary Committee’s response to a sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has stepped down amid evidence he was fired from a previous political job in part because of a sexual harassment allegation against him.

Garrett Ventry, 29, who serves as a communications aide to the committee chaired by Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, had been helping coordinate the majority party's messaging in the wake of Christine Blasey Ford’s claim that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her 36 years ago at a high school party. In a response to NBC News, Ventry denied any past "allegations of misconduct."

After NBC News raised questions about Ventry's employment history and the sexual assault allegation against him, Judiciary Committee Spokesman Taylor Foy replied in a statement: "While (Ventry) strongly denies allegations of wrongdoing, he decided to resign to avoid causing any distraction from the work of the committee."

Republicans familiar with the situation had been concerned that Ventry, because of his history, could not lead an effective communications response.

If they testify Monday to opposite stories UNDER OATH that indicates a crime for FBI to investigate.

Steven Dennis @StevenTDennis

Hm. If both Kavanaugh and Ford testify under oath Monday and tell opposite stories, one could be committing the federal crime of lying to Congress. Would there be precedent for FBI to then investigate?

You just can't run from the FBI.

Never forget Operation Desert Badger.


On 9/11 it is good to remember Operation Desert Badger, Shrub's 2001 attempt during the first eight months after his inauguration to start a war with Iraq.

Otherwise the dark side will bury it in obscurity.
