Democrats plan to keep a campaign promise that will further polarize the nation and bring even more shame to Congress. After tearing his family apart and dragging his good name through the muck during the U.S. Supreme Court nomination hearings, judge Brett Kavanaugh won appointment to the land’s highest judicial post.
The cost was great. Perhaps too great as once-respected Sen. Dianne Feinstein set a series of uncorroborated allegations of sexual misconduct in motion. Since the most despicable partisan hearings in American history concluded, accusers have admitted to fabricating fantastical stories against the Christian, father, and husband who was best known as a high school basketball coach in his community and humble man who volunteered at soup kitchens.
Despite the pain, now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh, his family, and the country suffered, newly elected Democrats plan to re-target Kavanaugh in a bid to impeach and remove him from the U.S. Supreme Court.
Liberal Democrats in the U.S. House were incensed that President Donald Trump was able to seat his second nominee to the high court. And just as they have vowed to oust the president by any means necessary, several promised to continue the attacks on Justice Kavanaugh once Congress reopened in 2019. In a New York Times piece published before the mid-term elections, New York Rep. Jerrold Nadler indicated he and other Democrats would not accept the outcome of the Senate hearings and vote.
“It is not something we are eager to do,” Nadler reportedly said. “But the Senate having failed to do its proper constitutionally mandated job of advise and consent, we are going to have to do something to provide a check and balance, to protect the rule of law and to protect the legitimacy of one of our most important institutions.”
According to the left-leaning NY Times, Rep. Nadler promised that if Democrats took a House majority, they would subpoena the White House and FBI for internal documents and reopen the debunked claims of misconduct. They hope to find a scrap of evidence or misstatement that would allow them to bring a perjury claim and impeach Justice Kavanaugh.
“We have to assure the American people either that it was a fair process and that the new justice did not commit perjury, did not do these terrible things, or reveal that we just don’t know because the investigation was a whitewash,” Nadler reportedly said.
With Democrats seizing control of the House, liberal members refuse to accept that the process ran its course. They also continue to presume Justice Kavanaugh is guilty of something, anything.
“There’s no question (Kavanaugh) committed perjury during the confirmation hearings and so forth,” Colorado Rep. Joe Neguse reportedly said of possible impeachment hearings. “I think the Judiciary Committee is likely to take that up.”
When asked on the record about what he believed Justice Kavanaugh was not truthful about, the Democrat had no response. Kavanaugh refuted the allegations of sexual misconduct from his high school years. The primary accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, could not provide a location, timeline or corroborating witnesses. In fact, those she named had no knowledge of the events and Ford could not explain how she even got to and from a supposed house party.
The willful viciousness of House Democrats to revisit one of the lowest points in American politics is doubly heinous when you consider their intent. Although the left gained a majority in the House, they lost ground in the U.S. Senate. That means Republicans have the votes to install another nominee easily. Re-targeting Kavanaugh after he was exonerated would only serve to divide the country and impugn a good man’s reputation. At the end of the day, President Trump would call upon another conservative judge from his published list. Democrats even admit this fact.
“The worst-case scenario — or best case depending on your point of view — you prove he committed perjury, about a terrible subject and the Judicial Conference recommends you impeach him,” Rep. Nadler reportedly said. “So, the president appoints someone just as bad.”
Americans may be witnessing the worst political hatred in our lifetime. Democrats just want to watch the world burn.
