Democrats should be ashamed and particularly Senator Dianne Feinstein who engineered the last minute attempt to ambush Supreme Court candidate Brett Kavanaugh. Feinstein, who is the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary committee vetting Kavanaugh, withheld evidence alleging sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh until the day the panel was preparing to take a vote to confirm. She withheld the evidence for almost two months, concealing it from other committee members while the hearing was going on.
Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley said to Feinstein “I cannot overstate how disappointed I’m in this action”. He suggested that the last-minute allegations were “deployed strategically for political gain.” Democrats are hoping to delay the hearing until after the Nov. 6 congressional elections to give them a chance to win back enough Senate seats to defeat Kavanaugh. Feinstein comment was, “We should delay this hearing.”
There were other Democrats at work to derail Trump’s Supreme Court picks. Hillary Clinton’s former campaign press secretary Brian Fallon hired one of Feinstein’s top aides, Paige Herwig, to help sink Trump’s picks by launching a liberal nonprofit group called Demand Justice to lead the attack on his nominees.
Just after Trump nominated Kavanaugh for the high court, Fallon reveled some of his plans; including proposing questions about allegations of sexual misconduct by a federal judge Kavanaugh once clerked for. Those questions were quickly dispensed when the fact that the two did not even work in the same city. Next came allegations of misconduct while still in high school. A letter containing the allegation was hand-delivered to Feinstein’s office. Strangely that letter was hidden until the last minute. Even stranger was that, Feinstein did not raise anything about the letter during confirmation hearings where evidence is supposed to be presented.
Throughout the hearings, Demand Justice sent outrageous protesters, some of them paid, claiming Kavanaugh wanted to deny women’s rights. They ran attack ads warning he planned to “overturn Roe versus Wade and thus criminalize abortion.” The scare tactics didn’t work. Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) representing two states where the ads ran, sent strong signals they would back Kavanaugh, prompting Demand Justice to concede it might be unable to stop the Senate from confirming him.
Then, just days before the committee planned to vote for Kavanaugh, the letter that was handed to Feinstein months ago was leaked to the media and the accuser was soon identified. Christine Ford, a Democratic donor from San Francisco, who claimed Kavanaugh tried to pin her down and sexually assault her at a party while the two were in high school. But her details are sketchy at best. She can’t remember exactly when or where the alleged incident took place, how she got there, how she got home, whose house it was, and what the occasion of the party was for, or even what year it was. She concedes she didn’t tell anybody about it at the time, making it seemingly impossible to corroborate her story, investigate it, or for the accused to present an alibi.
She allegedly paid for, took, and passed a polygraph test conducted by a former FBI agent in August, and also hired a law firm headed by major Democratic donors and activists who are working with Demand Justice to smear Kavanaugh. Some might wonder who paid for the legal bills and why someone telling the truth would need a team of lawyers or even a polygraph test a month before you wanted to remain anonymous.
Debra Katz, Ford’s lead attorney also heads a leftist advocacy group funded by George Soros, who incidentally is funding Demand Justice (what a coincidence), they have raised over $5 million to sink any and all of Trump’s high court picks. Lots of questions, but if you do not care who you hurt or smear, can forget your integrity and oath of office, just stop him from being confirmed, or any good person in the future, as who wants to have their reputation destroyed by charges with no evidence. What a disgrace for those that only want to win and do not care how they do it.
Even more concerning is some top democrats are stating that the allegations have been made and now the burden of proof is on the accused! This flies in the face of our justice system and the Bill of Rights. For 1000 years+ the accuser has had the burden of proof but the Democrats by their statements seem to want to flip this on its head.
This is a very concerning development for anyone who is a man, or who has a husband or a son. They may one day be accused and be forced to try to prove a negative or something that didn’t happen. This is disgusting, frightening, extremely radical and must be denied.
