Gov. Malloy and Lt. Gov. Wyman Statements on the Latest Allegations Against Brett Kavanaugh

(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Dannel P. Malloy and Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman released the following statements on Julie Swetnick’s credible sexual misconduct allegations against U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh:

Governor Malloy said, “Republicans in the United States Senate should treat women with respect and should start to believe them. As a first step towards this end, Senate Republicans should immediately request a full investigation into the allegations made by several women in recent days regarding Judge Kavanaugh’s prior conduct. In the meantime, President Trump should temporarily withdraw Kavanaugh’s nomination as that investigation proceeds. And should the President choose not to do so, Kavanaugh should ask the President remove his own name if only for the honor of the court.”

Lt. Governor Wyman said, “I am sickened and disturbed by the allegations against Brett Kavanaugh. The Senate Judiciary Committee must investigate these credible accusations and immediately halt the confirmation process. Confirming Judge Kavanaugh to a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court sends yet another message to young women in this country that we value men and their ambitions more than the autonomy and experiences of women. I urge all Americans who want to live in a country that equally values our daughters and sons to stand up and call on the United States Senate to reject Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court.”
