Anyway, to bring this all full circle, the Federalist Society -- the group behind most of Trump's judicial nominations, including Brett Kavanaugh -- oversaw GMU receiving a $20M gift in 2016 and has been involved in GMU hiring. https://t.co/pQ6EjtYr6C https://t.co/YIEXh4T0HR

After the town hall was over, I asked the GMU president if he saw any scenario where GMU would end its contract with Kavanaugh if protests continue, the petition grows, the students keep complaining and sharing stories of sexual assault. "No. It's done." https://t.co/Xas1ktcREO

Sarah, 17, was the most eloquent speaker of the night, tying her own painful story to GMU's decision to hire Kavanaugh. “How could Kavanaugh possibly be hired despite Ford’s allegations?" The prez told her it would "be an honor" to have her at GMU. She told me later, mmm, no.

One student went rogue & asked GMU officials a ? that wasn't pre-cleared: did they have kids (6 outta 7 did) + would they be comfortable with their kids being around an alleged sexual assaulter like Kavanaugh. Only 1 said yes! Not even the prez. AWKWARD https://t.co/sdTjUQoMbl https://t.co/hFnIlLxlPm
