Democrats are launching a horrible plan to stop Donald Trump
Democrats are looking to deal Donald Trump a deadly blow before the midterm elections.
Led by Chuck Schumer, the left is scouring Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s record in order to dig up dirt they can use to derail his confirmation.
And liberals settled on one horrible idea to defeat Trump.
Democrats are going to try and tar Kavanaugh with #MeToo allegations that were leveled against Judge Alex Kozinski.
Kavanaugh clerked for Kozinski in the 1990s and the left is trying to paint him with guilt by association.
Senate Democrats are gearing up to press Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on his decades-long relationship with former Judge Alex Kozinski, who was forced into retirement last year by a mounting sexual harassment scandal.
It’s not just what, if anything, Kavanaugh saw during his time as a Kozinski clerk in the early 1990s that’s on Democratic minds. They also want to know how President Donald Trump’s high court pick would address the judiciary’s ongoing internal reckoning with sexual misconduct that was sparked by Kozinski — one of Kavanaugh’s early mentors who introduced the younger appellate court judge at his Senate confirmation hearing in 2006.
“Sexual harassment and workplace misconduct in the federal judiciary is a matter of concern to all of us, including Chief Justice [John] Roberts, who convened a Judicial Conference working group to assess the problem and propose solutions,” Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) said through a spokesman.
“Given Judge Kavanaugh’s close relationship with former Judge Alex Kozinski, the subject of numerous harassment complaints, we need to know what Judge Kavanaugh knew and his views on this serious problem,” added Hirono, who sits on the Judiciary Committee and will have a chance to directly question Kavanaugh at hearings planned for next month.”
There has never been a hint or whisper that Kavanaugh was complicit in Kozinski’s predatory behavior.
But that doesn’t matter. Liberals will grasp at any straw knowing their allies in the so-called “mainstream” media will amplify their allegations.
