After Failing to Impeach Trump, Dems Dredge Up Fake Kavenaugh Allegations
There used to be a time in politics that if one party lost they would pull themselves up by the bootstraps and try to win the next time around. In the meantime they would work together for the good of the country and try to sort their differences out. That seems to have fallen by the wayside in the days of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Today’s democrat party is so upset that they lost and so upset that Trump put two new conservatives on the Supreme court that hey have lost it completely. All they do is attack, attack and attack with baseless accusations without any proof. The Democrats think that they can say anything they want and get away with it. It does not matter what is said or who says it they think they are above reproach. And anytime a Republican makes a slip of the tongue the self-serving Democrats are there to demand their execution. Now they are going after Brett Kavenaugh once again even though Kavenaugh has ruled with liberals more than conservatives.
The New York Times ran an article by Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, adapted from their forthcoming book, asserted that a Kavanaugh classmate, Clinton-connectednonprofit CEO Max Stier, “saw Mr. Kavanaugh with his pants down at a different drunken dorm party, where friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student.”
The Times did not mention Stier’s work as a Clinton defense attorney, or Stier’s legal battles with Kavanaugh during the Whitewater investigation, and simply called him a “respected thought leader.”
According to the Times, Stier “notified senators and the FBI about this account” last year during the Kavanaugh hearings, “but the FBI did not investigate and Mr. Stier has declined to discuss it publicly.”
However, the Times’ article also conspicuously did not mention that Pogrebin and Kelly’s book found that the female student in question had denied any knowledge of the alleged episode.
“The book notes, quietly, that the woman Max Stier named as having been supposedly victimized by Kavanaugh and friends denies any memory of the alleged event,” observed The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway. “Seems, I don’t know, significant.”
The book reads: “[Tracy] Harmon, whose surname is now Harmon Joyce, has also refused to discuss the incident, though several of her friends said she does not recall it.”
The New York Times has revised its story to include the fact that several friends of the alleged victim said she told them she did not recall the supposed sexual assault in question. The major revision to the Times’ reporting came several hours after various politicians, including virtually all major 2020 Democratic candidates for president, cited the Times’ reporting as a reason to impeach Kavanaugh.
That didn’t stop the current list of dem candidates needed to jump in the fray without any proof.
Top 2020 Democratic contenders Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Beto O’Rourke, Cory Booker and Julian Castro announced on Sunday that Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh “must be impeached,” after an uncorroborated and disputed allegation of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh resurfaced in a weekend New York Times piece.
The revitalized, longshot push to get Kavanaugh removed from the high court comes as Democrats’ apparent effort to impeach President Trump has largely stalled. Trump, for his part, suggested Sunday that Kavanaugh should sue for defamation.
Impeaching Kavanaugh would require a majority vote in the Democratic-controlled House, and a highly unlikely two-thirds vote in the GOP-majority Senate would then be needed to remove him from the bench. No Supreme Court justice or president has ever been convicted by the Senate, although eight lower-level federal judges have been.
Hawaii Democratic Sen. Mazie Hirono — who infamously said last year that Kavanaugh did not deserve a fair hearing because he might be pro-life — said the Senate Judiciary Committee should begin an impeachment inquiry to determine whether Kavanaugh lied to Congress.
Kamala Harris chimed in, “I sat through those hearings,” Harris wrote on Twitter. “Brett Kavanaugh lied to the U.S. Senate and most importantly to the American people. He was put on the Court through a sham process and his place on the Court is an insult to the pursuit of truth and justice. He must be impeached.”
During the hearings, Harris strongly implied that she knew Kavanaugh had improperly discussed Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s then-ongoing probe with a Trump-connected lawyer.
Harris provided no evidence for the bombshell insinuation, which went viral on social media and sent the hearing room into stunned silence, even as she directly accused Kavanaugh of lying under oath.
Julian Castro and Elizabeth Warren echoed that sentiment and said Kavanaugh had committed perjury.
“It’s more clear than ever that Brett Kavanaugh lied under oath,” Castro wrote. “He should be impeached. And Congress should review the failure of the Department of Justice to properly investigate the matter.
Warren wrote: “Last year the Kavanaugh nomination was rammed through the Senate without a thorough examination of the allegations against him. Confirmation is not exoneration, and these newest revelations are disturbing. Like the man who appointed him, Kavanaugh should be impeached.”
Robert Francis (Beto) O’Rourke claimed to “know” that Kavanaugh had lied under oath, and falsely said that the new accuser was not known to Senate Democrats or the FBI last year.
“Yesterday, we learned of another accusation against Brett Kavanaugh—one we didn’t find out about before he was confirmed because the Senate forced the F.B.I. to rush its investigation to save his nomination,” O’Rourke said. “We know he lied under oath. He should be impeached.”
Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., tweeted in part, “This new allegation and additional corroborating evidence adds to a long list of reasons why Brett Kavanaugh should not be a Supreme Court justice. I stand with survivors and countless other Americans in calling for impeachment proceedings to begin.
Bernie Sanders, meanwhile, said he backed getting rid of Kavanaugh by any legal means available: “The revelations today confirm what we already knew: During his hearing, Kavanaugh faced credible accusations and likely lied to Congress. I support any appropriate constitutional mechanism to hold him accountable.”
Notice that all these charges are pure emotion devoid of facts which is how liberals operate. These so called incidents go back thirty or more years ago which is ridiculous and all the witnesses when Christine Blasy Ford was accusing Kavenaugh have all denied the charges or even remembered them. What are dems going to do next? Attack Kavenaugh for writing on the sidewalk with chalk when he was a little kid?
As the calls mounted, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., shot back Sunday afternoon on Twitter — and made clear that Kavanaugh wasn’t going anywhere.
“The far left’s willingness to seize on completely uncorroborated and unsubstantiated allegations during last year’s confirmation process was a dark and embarrassing chapter for the Senate,” McConnell wrote.
He added: “Fortunately a majority of Senators and the American people rallied behind timeless principles such as due process and the presumption of innocence. I look forward to many years of service to come from Justice Kavanaugh.”
President Trump, meanwhile, accused the media of trying to influence Kavanaugh. He also went on to say that Kavanaugh should go on the offensive and take on the media for false statements: “Brett Kavanaugh should start suing people for libel, or the Justice Department should come to his rescue. The lies being told about him are unbelievable. False Accusations without recrimination. When does it stop? They are trying to influence his opinions. Can’t let that happen!” he tweeted.
The Federalist reported last week that Ford’s father privately supported Kavanaugh’s confirmation, and approached Ed Kavanaugh on a golf course to make his support clear.
Some claims that surfaced during Kavanaugh’s confirmation fell apart within days. For example, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., received a call from an anonymous constituent who claimed that in 1985, two “heavily inebriated men” referred to as “Brett and Mark” had sexually assaulted a friend of hers on a boat.
The Twitter account belonging to the accuser apparently advocated for a military coup against the Trump administration. The constituent recanted the sexual assault claim on the social media site days later.
Accusing someone of something in the public eye without any proof is a very dangerous precedent to follow, but these dems suffering from TDS don’t care and are willing to take down the country with their baseless allegations all for their own power. What a good liberal and democrat just can’t take is defeat. They throw anything and everything in hopes something might stick. These “new Democrats” will steal the elections from the President on down unless people stand united and active in these campaigns of lies and smears against us.
Kate Kelly, one of the authors of the Times piece , is another wonderful product of Columbia University. It would appear Columbia has produced a small army of the this lowest form of ideologically based propagandist currently twisting public opinion all over our country. Dirty ideological tricksters out of Columbia….. wow ….who knew?
The mind is a terrible thing to waste but wasting the mind is the epitome of LIEberalism !! What’s far worse is the so called Deep State controlled “higher inculcation cabal” that masquerades as college and the university system.
Gone are the days when attending an illustrious university actually meant something. As with EVERYTHING that is controlled, otherwise associated or comes in contact with the left, the university system has become tainted.
The following is the true definition of a pampered, self indulgent pseudo intellectual High School or College idiot. You exist in the make-believe world of the campus, and have no idea of what people in the real world do or endure. Your total lack of common sense shows just exactly why today’s high school or college diploma would be better used for toilet paper.
All today’s diploma shows that one has learned how to scam the system, and not that they know how to tie their shoes…without help…. It’s too bad the military draft was abolished as a stint in basic training would do wonders for your understanding of reality.
Unfortunately According to the Pentagon, 72% of today’s youth ages 17 through 25 would not qualify for induction into the armed forces. 35% would be disqualified for being obese another 19% would not qualify because of the use of controlled substances 13% would not be acceptable because they lack the proper education The remaining 5% would be unacceptable due to mental and or societal issues.
