Vice President Kamala Harris -who led the crusade against the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court- refuses to comment on a series of allegations against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
“The vice president made no remarks on the issue during public appearances Tuesday, including at a United Nations event on the Commission on the Status of Women. During her appearance, she praised the roles women hold in democratic societies,” reports Fox News.
Kamala ascended to VPOTUS by lauding herself as a feminist & champion for women & girls
Now, as the most powerful woman in America, she remains silent on an egregious sexual assault scandal because it's against a political ally
Feminism is a farce.https://t.co/R6NqX7Cnbs

“The status of democracy also depends fundamentally on the empowerment of women, not only because the exclusion of women in decision making is a marker of a flawed democracy, but because of the participation of women strengthens democracy,” she said. “I am proud to report that while the United States still has work to do, we too are making progress and that women strengthen our democracy every day.”
Cuomo refuses to resign despite seven different allegations of sexual misconduct; saying he “will not bow to cancel culture.”

BACKLASH BUILDS: NY Times Under Fire over Botched Kavanaugh ‘Bombshell’
The New York Times continued to fend-off attacks from both Republicans and Democrats Tuesday, with multiple outlets attacking the newspaper for publishing a “bombshell” report on Brett Kavanaugh without providing exculpatory material.
“Between an offensive tweet and a significant revision, The New York Times’ handling of a new sexual misconduct allegation against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh attracted almost as much attention as the accusation itself,” writes the Associated Press.
“After the story was posted online but before it was in the print edition, the Times revised the story to add that the book reported that the woman supposedly involved in the incident declined to be interviewed, and that her friends say she doesn’t recall the incident. While an editor’s note pointed out the revision, it did not say why those facts had been left out in the first place. A Times spokeswoman said no one was available for an interview on Monday,” adds the AP.
2020 presidential hopeful Senator Kamala Harris doubled-down on her calls for the impeachment of Kavanaugh Monday night; calling new allegations against the judge “credible.”
“Christine Blasey Ford, who literally had nothing to gain by coming forward… nothing to gain. She had a perfect life. And she looked at the fact that this guy was being nominated and said, ‘the American people had the right to know what I know,’ and she was treated like a criminal,” Harris told MSNBC.
“So yes, I call for impeachment,” Harris told MSNBC host Rachel Maddow. “I believe that is the clearest way for us to get an investigation of these allegations and we should open an investigation of these allegations.”
I sat through those hearings. Brett Kavanaugh lied to the U.S. Senate and most importantly to the American people. He was put on the Court through a sham process and his place on the Court is an insult to the pursuit of truth and justice.
He must be impeached.

“I sat through those hearings. Brett Kavanaugh lied to the U.S. Senate and most importantly to the American people. He was put on the Court through a sham process and his place on the Court is an insult to the pursuit of truth and justice. He must be impeached,” posted Harris on social media over the weekend.
The New York Times ultimately issued an apology and retracted key aspects of the story after the alleged victim claims to have no memory of the incident.
COURT CHAOS: Kavanaugh Hearing Interrupted by Protesters, Dems Call for DELAY
The hearings surrounding President Trump’s nominee to join the Supreme Court descended into chaos Tuesday morning, with liberal protesters chanting “vote no” as Congressional Democrats called for an indefinite postponement.
“Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley was able to deliver his opening statement for just a few seconds before Democratic California Sen. Kamala Harris raised objections to the committee just receiving a batch of 42,000 documents relating to the nominee’s work with past administrations,” writes Fox News.
“We cannot possibly move forward,” said Sen. Harris.
Sen. Cory Booker slammed Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley moments later, saying the proceedings violated his “sense of decency.”
“I think you are taking advantage of my decency and my integrity,” Grassley fired-back.
