What the left did to Brett Kavanaugh will go down in history as one of the sleaziest political hit jobs we have ever seen.
They didn’t try the same shenanigans with Gorsuch, which was odd, but they sure brought out the venom for Kavanaugh.
Now, Diane Feinsten says her team did not leak the Blassy Ford stuff right before the confirmation but that may be hard to believe.
To be honest, the only thing the left did right was rebuff Avenatii when he tried to insert himself into the debate with wild and debunked rape claims.
It became a circus and then the judges started ruling and the left was shocked. They are not partisan judges after all, but rather judges who follow the law. They should apologize of course for what they did but they will not.
Ruth Ginsburg for one is trying to set the record straight. From CNN:
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg came to the defense of her more conservative colleagues on the bench, Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch.
“I can say that my two newest colleagues are very decent and very smart individuals,” she said Wednesday at an event in Washington, D.C., hosted by Duke Law as she answered questions from Neil Siegel, a law professor and one of her former law clerks.
Kavanaugh was sworn in on October 6, following a contentious confirmation hearing inflamed by allegations of sexual assault against him.
Kavanaugh replaced retired Justice Anthony Kennedy, who had been the court’s swing vote.
Gorsuch took his seat on April 10, 2017, filling the vacancy left by the late Justice Antonin Scalia. Both were nominated to the Supreme Court by Trump.
Ginsburg has previously praised Kavanaugh for helping the court achieve a historic first.
“There is a very important first on the Supreme Court this term, and it’s thanks to our new justice, Justice Kavanaugh, whose entire staff is all women. All of his law clerks are women,” she said earlier this month at a event held by Georgetown Law.
“And with his four women as law clerks, it’s the first time in the history of the United States that there have been more women clerking at the court than men.”
