Keith Ellison’s accuser says with proof, Dem party smears, doubts her – cry for Kavanaugh’s head, with none

September 18, 2018

The woman who accused Rep. Keith Ellison of domestic abuse is slamming Democrats for their hypocrisy amid allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

The Minnesota Democrat’s former girlfriend, Karen Monahan, blasted Democrats for not believing her after she came forward last month with allegations that he had physically and emotionally abused her during their relationship, including hurling obscenities at her and once dragging her off a bed.


Ellison, who went on to win the Democratic primary election for Minnesota attorney general even after the accusations, has denied Monahan’s claims.

And though the Democratic National Committee announced it would review the allegations, weeks later Ellison, the DNC’s deputy chair, has faced no repercussions even as party members are looking for Kavanaugh’s head after a woman accused him of alleged sexual misconduct over three decades ago.

“Democrats say believe women, do they believe you,” a twitter user asked Monahan, referring to her claims in the wake of how they are treating Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford.

“No, they don’t,” Monahan responded. “I’ve been smeared, threatened, isolated from my own party. I provided medical records from 2017, stating on two different Dr. Visits, I told them about the abuse and who did it. My therapist released records stating I have been dealing and healing from the abuse.”

While Ford has no other witnesses to her allegations that Kavanaugh tried to force himself onto her at a high school party when they were teenagers, – which he has denied – Monahan said she has produced texts between herself and Ellison as well as other proof of the abuses.

“As I said before, I knew I wouldn’t be believed,” she said in another tweet.

Four people, including my supervisor at the time, stated that I came to them after and shared the exact story I shared publicly, I shared multiple text between me and Keith, where I discuss the abuse with him and much more. As I said before, I knew I wouldn't be believed

Prominent Democrats and progressives, such as Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and DNC Chairman Tom Perez, have demanded Ford’s claims be investigated while they remained mum after the accusations against Ellison emerged. Perez frequently deferred to the DNC probe and the state-level party’s investigation, neither of which have produced anything on Ellison.

Perez tweeted Sunday about the “serious allegation” against Kavanaugh and that it “must be investigated thoroughly.”


Tom Perez

@TomPerez
This is a lifetime appointment to the highest court in the land & this serious allegation must be investigated thoroughly. The American people deserve answers, not a vote that is rammed through by Republicans. There is too much at stake. https://wapo.st/2xqUWLE

No tweets from the DNC chair on Ellison, however.

Doesn’t it bother you that @SenSanders and @SenKirstenG refused to comment to reporters on your Ellison allegations but have spoken out about Kavenaugh? Double standard.


Karen Monahan
@KarenMonahan01
No, I expected everything that has taken place before I decided to break my silence. I even stated it in my original statement. I showed up for myself & that was a huge piece of my healing

Democratic strategist and former advisor to Hillary Clinton and John Kerry, Peter Daou, tweeted that people must “believe women” and that Kavanaugh’s accuser would be “attacked, smeared, and demonized.”


Peter Daou

@peterdaou
Make no mistake: #ChristineBlaseyFord will be attacked, smeared, and demonized. She will sustain more venom and vilification than #Kavanaugh. That's how this works.

BELIEVE WOMEN.

So far, it seems Democrats have done nothing of the sort.

Monahan also called out both parties for trying to score political points at the expense of a victim’s pain.

The fact that both parties only care if it scores political points is hypocritical.
Do you think a person who has dealt with any form of abuse by an politicians is thinking about politics? No, we & are families are trying to heal

With the Democrats’ eleventh-hour antics to smear Kavanaugh and derail his confirmation vote scheduled for Thursday, scoring political points seems to be the name of the game.

She's right, it's all about politics and nothing else.

Default BOOM: Chairman Grassley Gives Kavanaugh Accuser Bold Ultimatum

BOOM: Chairman Grassley Gives Kavanaugh Accuser Bold Ultimatum
September 18, 2018 Martin

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, issued a bold ultimatum on Tuesday to the woman who claims Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her nearly 40 years ago: testify before the Senate on Monday or the hearing is off.


During a radio interview Tuesday on “The Hugh Hewitt Show,” Grassley said he has sent numerous requests to Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who has accused Kavanaugh, to appear before the Senate on Monday to testify about what she claims happened to her nearly four decades ago.

Grassley scheduled a hearing for Monday and has invited both Kavanaugh and his legal team as well as Ford and her representatives to testify before Congress and lawmakers about the alleged incident in the early 1980s.

Kavanaugh has accepted the invitation and said he is anxious to answer questions and clear his name. Ford and her legal team have yet to respond to Grassley’s numerous requests to testify.


Grassley made it clear on Tuesday that if Ford’s team does not respond soon, the hearing scheduled for Monday is off, and the Committee will move forward with Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote next Thursday.

“We have reached out to her in the last 36 hours three or four times by email and we have not heard from them, and it kind of raises the question, do they want to come to the public hearing or not?”

When asked whether there would be a hearing if Ford did not agree to appear, Grassley said there was no reason to if she doesn’t respond.

“What would be the purpose of the hearing if Dr. Ford doesn’t want to respond?” Grassley added.

the woman accusing Judge Brett Kavanaugh of high-school-era sexual assault, has so far ignored repeated inquiries from the Senate Judiciary Committee, Senator Chuck Grassley told Hugh Hewitt Tuesday. https://dailycaller.com/2018/09/18/k...ate-inquiries/ … via @dailycaller

Kavanaugh Accuser Ignoring Senate Inquiries
Reached out to Ford and her attorney 'three or four times'

Last week, The Washington Post published a report detailing accusations brought forward by Christine Blasey Ford, who alleges Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were both in high school almost four decades ago.

Ford — a university professor in California and self-admitted liberal activist — claimed to the Post that she believed Kavanaugh could “inadvertently kill” her during a party in the early 1980s. She alleges that Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed and groped her while she was wearing a one-piece bathing suit.

Kavanaugh has vehemently denied the allegation, said he was never at the party in question, and that he only vaguely remembers Ford. He also stated that he will testify publicly before the Senate and answer questions about the allegations.



Ford’s lawyer told CNN on Monday that it’s not “her job” to corroborate her allegations, and that Kavanaugh should be the one required to prove his innocence.

Senate Judiciary Committee ranking Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-CA, has known about the accusations for over a month, and has not said anything at all — including to her Democratic colleagues — until late last week.

She also never once brought up the allegations when she privately met with Kavanaugh nor did she ask a single question about it during his confirmation hearing earlier this month.

President Donald Trump slammed Feinstein and Democrats on Monday, telling reporters that he is standing by Kavanaugh and the witch hunt against him.

“I wish the Democrats could have done this a lot sooner because they had this information for many months. And they shouldn’t have waited until literally the last days. They should have done it a lot sooner.”

Grassley’s ultimatum is simple: if Ford agrees, she and Kavanaugh can take questions before the Senate on Monday.

If she does not accept the invitation, then the hearing on Monday will be cancelled and the committee will vote on Kavanaugh’s confirmation on Thursday.

If Ford claims Kavanaugh assaulted her, why will she not testify before Congress about it?
