Kathy Griffin Celebrates Brett Kavanaugh Sexual Misconduct Allegations, Paul Manafort Plea Deal

Kathy Griffin was delighted by a wave of scandals that rocked the White House on Friday. The comedian celebrated not only the sexual misconduct allegations against President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh but also the plea deal accepted by Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort, both of which occurred on Friday.

Griffin was obviously tuned in to the news, as proven by a string of retweets regarding Manafort's guilty plea to two criminal charges. "From Manafort to Kavanaugh….what a great Friday. More to come? I hope so!" she tweeted, followed by retweets of more details regarding Manafort's guilty status.

The plea deal, which will include Manafort's cooperation in special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election and Donald Trump's potential collusion, was made in exchange for leniency on sentencing. It is possible Manafort will have to stand as a witness for Mueller as part of the deal.

Instead of being charged for seven crimes, Manafort's deal reduces his charges to two, including conspiring to defraud the United States and conspiring to obstruct justice.

The motion is considered the biggest development thus far in Mueller's probe on whether or not Trump had any involvement in the Russians' attempt to influence the 2016 election.

Meanwhile, Kavanaugh is facing accusations of sexual misconduct after a woman mailed a letter to Democrats detailing his inappropriate behavior toward her when they were in high school more than 30 years ago. The New Yorker was the first to report on the allegations, of which the woman claimed Kavanaugh attempted to force himself on her at a party while they were students at Georgetown Preparatory School in Maryland in the 1980s.

The woman escaped but said the memory plagued her, causing her to seek psychological treatment.

Kavanaugh disputed the claim. "I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation. I did not do this back in high school or at any time," he said in a statement released Friday.
