Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, came to Collins' defense on Wednesday, tweeting through his office account that "every Democrat should be condemning these antics in ME - attempting to bribe Senator Collins to vote against Judge Kavanaugh and threatening sexual violence against staffers if she votes for him is absolutely disgusting".
Kavanaugh said that after a day packed with demonstrators, and not realizing who the man was, "I assumed he was a protestor". If I had known who he was, I would have shaken his hand, talked to him, and expressed my sympathy. "Mr. Guttenberg has suffered an incalculable loss". The idea is that people can donate now, before the outrage over Kavanaugh inevitably fades into a memory, and if Collins votes against his confirmation, everyone's money is refunded.

Under questioning last week, Kavanaugh clarified that while he may have attended meetings and hearing prep sessions, he wasn't the primary White House official assigned to Pryor.

"The harassment campaign from the far Left against Susan Collins - including threats of sexual violence against her staffers and potential illegal bribery - is truly shameful, and shows the desperation of the radicals to try to stop the confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh".
Sen. Booker made headlines last week when he claimed he was "breaking Senate rules" by leaking Judge Kavanaugh's confidential emails surrounding 9/11 and other issues; daring GOP leadership to "bring the charges". Collins' vote could decide whether he is appointed.
The committee was hoping to quickly process Kavanaugh's unusually long paper trail and relied on Bush's lawyer, Bill Burck, to compile the documents, first estimated to be 900,000 pages from Kavanaugh's time in the counsel's office.
Democrats have hammered Kavanaugh over a belief that he will weaken access to health care and abortion while undoing environmental regulation.
