In a new letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh said he will “not be intimidated” by the new allegations made against him.
“The coordinated effort to destroy my good name will not drive me out. The vile threats of violence against my family will not drive me out,” he wrote to Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA). “The last-minute character assassination will not succeed.”
His statement comes after a New Yorker report.
In his letter, Kavanaugh called the allegations published in The New Yorker “false and uncorroborated.” “There is now a frenzy to come up with something—anything—that will block this process and a vote on my confirmation from occurring. These are smears, pure and simple,” he wrote. “And they debase our public discourse. But they are also a threat to any man or woman who wishes to serve our country.”
