Maine Protesters Want Susan Collins To Take A Stand On Brett Kavanaugh

Additional emails obtained exclusively by Campus Reform show that as many as 20 Yale Law School faculty members canceled or rescheduled up to 31 classes on Monday because of the Kavanaugh hearing.

Singh estimated that there were about 400 students at the walkout, which was really exciting, she said, "because it takes a lot to get a Harvard Law Student to skip class".

"As a woman at Yale Law School, I do not know a single woman who has not been a victim of sexual harassment", another female protester explained. In one case, a former student told the Guardian, a prospective clerk was introduced to Kavanaugh at a party that Chua hosted at her home - and was later told that the judge wanted her to apply for the post.

"We worked very, very hard since the day Kavanaugh was nominated to frame exactly who this guy is, how hostile he is towards women, particularly on abortion rights", Hogue said on "The Circus". CT senator and Yale graduate Richard Blumenthal also made an appearance at the sit-in, where he told students, "There is no way that the US Senate, in good conscience, can vote on this nomination without a full investigation".

While a senate investigation of the claims is ongoing, U.S. Sen.

"It has been a time of terror and anguish for them and the pain and anguish they've chosen to endure speaks to their credibility as does their desire for an FBI investigation", Blumenthal said.

"We were extremely concerned about the radio silence that we've heard about the fact that Judge Kavanaugh is slated to teach here in January", Singh told Metro.

None of them have said how they will vote for Kavanaugh. When they walked out of the building at 1 p.m., in solidarity with the national "Women Must Be Heard" protest, the students gathered again in a private courtyard closed off to members of the media.

Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump's embattled Supreme Court justice nominee, is a Yale Law School alumnus.

They said it was important to remember that racial discrimination against Hill, a black woman, compounded the opposition and disbelief she faced.

But another former law student who was advised by Chua and approached the Guardian after its original story was published on Thursday said his experience was consistent with the allegations presented in the article.

Catherine McCarthy, a third-year law student, said it was moving to see the main hallway of the school filled with people wearing black and sitting silently Monday morning; she had never seen it so quiet. "We can never forget the role that race and gender both play in these confirmation hearings".

The unnamed sources the paper spoke with described receiving advice from Chua and her husband, Jed Rubenfeld, also of Yale, about the "look" Kavanaugh favored.

"First of all, I do not believe he's going to repeal Roe v. Wade", Collins said in an interview released Monday for Showtime's "The Circus".
