Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh released a public statement Monday regarding allegations of sexual misconduct against the judge during his time in high school and college; saying he refuses to be “intimidated” into “withdrawing from this process.”

The potential Justice penned a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee Monday afternoon; expressing his willingness to testify before Congress and address these “smears” publicly.

“These are smears, pure and simple. And they debase our public discourse. But they are also a threat to any man or woman who wishes to serve our country. Such grotesque and obvious character assassination—if allowed to succeed—will dissuade competent and good people of all political persuasions from service,” writes Kavanaugh.

“I will not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process. The coordinated effort to destroy my good name will not drive me out,” he adds. “The vile threats of violence against my family will not drive me out. The last- minute character assassination will not succeed.”

This needs to be rolled into the “one and only” thread.
