San Francisco – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi issued this statement on the allegations regarding Judge Brett Kavanaugh:

"I applaud the courage of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford to come forward to share her story.  As we continue to learn more about these allegations against Judge Kavanaugh, we must ensure that Dr. Ford’s rights to justice and privacy are respected.  Survivors should be supported when they come forward without the fear of threats or further trauma.  There must be an acknowledgement of the life-long impact of this episode, the cost to the family of coming forward and the gravity of a lifetime Supreme Court nomination.
"Failure to postpone this vote without due process and a thorough investigation into these serious and credible allegations would be a dereliction of Congress' duty to demand zero tolerance of sexual harassment and abuse.”
