Judge Brett Kavanaugh is a man of honor with apparent nerves of steel. He has been subjected to the worse kind of gutter politics and, to think, he is a nominee for the highest court in the land– not a ward leader in the District of Columbia.
The Democrat hierarchy in the Senate withheld a letter from a college professor in California accusing the judge of a sexual assault at a party 36 years ago. The letter was released days before a vote was scheduled to appoint Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court –notably after weeks of private and public interviews and hearings.
With all due respect to the alleged victim, this accusation was a reportable offense and, yet, she initially wanted to remain anonymous. Her letter, however, was released by the Democrats she had given it to.
Of course, both should be heard and both were scheduled for Thurs, Sept. 27th before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
I have another view and I’m not alone on this: The raw viciousness of the political game has risen to a new height. And the assault on a Supreme Court nominee gets worse as time drags on. The judge now faces other wild and crazy allegations, accusations that are unbelievable to any sane person, but believable to the #MeToo crowd and their bizarre partners on the Senate committee on the same mission – keep a conservative off the court.
This 11th hour assault on a Supreme Court Justice nominee is transparent and outrageous. It is a disgrace, actually, and something the Republicans should go to war over, if they have the courage.
It was obvious during the hearings that Judge Kavanaugh is a gentleman and a scholar.
This is what he had to say: “They debase our public discourse. But they are also a threat to any man or woman who wishes to serve our country. Such a grotesque and obvious character assassination – if allowed to succeed— will dissuade competent and good people of all political persuasions from service.
“I will not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process, The coordinated effort to destroy my good name will not drive me out. The vile threats of violence against my family will not drive me out. The last minute character assassination will not succeed.”
