I would argue the reverse is true for the people so vigorously defending him. They aren't defending him, they are defending their own actions and behavior. This is why they're able to stomach the claims against him - they are guilty of the same things. This is why they pass this off as the follies of a youth - they are guilty of the same things. This is why they claim he's being railroaded - they are guilty of the same things. The sole concern of these people is that if Kavanaugh is found guilty, they will be found guilty.
This is why you're fighting this. Be honest at least.
