Sen. Rob Portman and the Republican leadership are rushing to sweep Brett Kavanaugh‘s alleged sexual attack of Christine Blasey Ford under the rug without allowing for a nonpartisan investigation. They won‘t even allow witnesses at the hearing: It‘s a whitewash.

It seems that, to many, the truth does not matter. Perhaps they believe that if Kavanaugh did this in high school, so what; he‘s a better man now. That‘s missing the point. Every American should know that her nation‘s judicial system is not led by her childhood attacker.
