First Sen. Dianne Feinstein held onto Christine Ford’s scarlet letter since July and now Ford is demanding an FBI investigation before she will appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Feinstein held onto the letter until the 11th hour so that Judge Kavenaugh’s nomination would be torpedoed. Because an FBI investigation would take weeks, it is now clear that all along Ford’s intent was to kill the Kavanaugh nomination.
Now Feinstein says she does not know if Ford’s allegations are true. Even if they are true, should the reprehensible behavior of a 17-year-old teenager 36 years ago be grounds to keep Kaanaugh off the Supreme Court? What about Judge Kavanaugh’s impeccable record as an adult? I thought this is a nation that believes in giving wrongdoers a second chance. We give prison inmates, even murderers, a second chance when they are released.
The Democratic Senators are intent on killing the Kavanaugh nomination. They have now been given a big boost by Palo Alto University psychology professor Christine Ford. Her character assassination may well kill the nomination, as was clearly her intent when she sent that scarlet letter to Feinstein.
Kavanaugh categorically denies the attempted rape ever took place. Mark Judge, who Ford claimed was Kavanaugh’s’ accomplice, says he has no recollection of anything like that happening and that “It’s just absolutely nuts. I never saw Brett act that way.” And now Patrick J. Smyth, who was identified as “PJ” in the scarlet letter, denies being present at the party and says, “I have known Brett Kavanaugh since high school. I have never witnessed any improper conduct by Brett Kavanaugh towards women.”
The Democrats say that Ford’s allegations make Kavanaugh unfit to serve on the Supreme Court. Oh yea? If so, isn’t he also unfit to serve on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals? Quick, start impeachment proceedings against the appellate court judge!
You can expect the Democrats to do what they do. But what is outrageous is that even some Republicans are now wavering in their support of Kavanaugh.
Kavanaugh deserves to have his nomination approved. He is eminently qualified to serve as a Justice of the Supreme Court. Ford’s character assassination should not stand in the way. Shame, shame on any Senator who will vote against Kavanaugh’s nomination.
