'There aren't any rules. It's politics': Krewson around the Turmoil from the Kavanaugh Hearings


How will the U.S. Senate finally resolve allegations of sexual harassment against Top court nominee Brett Kavanaugh?

There's not a way to understand. There isn't any clear guidelines although the Senate has already established more than three decades to prepare them.

That's the perspective of DPE professor and Supreme Court specialist Christopher Krewson, who believes the U.S. Senate should have learned a long time ago, throughout the Clarence Thomas-Anita Hill controversy, that the mechanism was needed to respond to sexual harassment accusations.

But simply because they haven't made a process, the Senate's reaction to allegations against Kavanaugh is totally unknown.

\”There's no way for the accusers to systematically and orderly submit this information. There's no method to really protect their anonymity. There aren't any procedures to tell senators how to approach these issues,\” says Krewson, a former managing editor of Constitutional Studies. \”There aren't any rules. It's politics.\”
