Community group vocalizes protest to Kavanaugh nomination

Local News

Ahead of the Senate Judiciary Commitee’s vote regarding Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, community group Roanoke Indivisible visited Senator Tim Kaine and Senator Mark Warner’s Roanoke offices. While at Senator Kaine’s office, the group met with a staff assistant to discuss concerns and raise questions they had. They also expressed their desire for a full FBI investigation into the sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh. 

“Nothing that happened yesterday, at least nothing that I’ve heard discredits the credible allegation that was leveled against Judge Kavanaugh. And I think people deserve to know through the branch of the FBI what the evidence actually suggests,” says Indivisble Roanoke founder, Ivonne Wallace Fuentes. 

Senator Kaine released a statement saying he found Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony credible. Following the visit to his office, the Indivisble Roanoke group also visited Senator Warner’s office.
