A video has surfaced that removes all doubt as to what was really behind the smearing of Brett Kavanaugh.
Imagine what that guy went through – did you see his Fox interviews where he had to admit personally embarrassing things?
Or his testimony where if he did not deliver the performance of a lifetime his career and reputation would have been ruined.
The truth is horrible – they knew they could not stop a conservative appointment because they did not have the votes so they smeared a man in hopes that the damage they would do to his reputation would be so bad as to call into question his future rulings on abortion.
The new book, ‘In Search and Destroy: Inside the Campaign Against Brett Kavanaugh,’ was written by Ryan Lovelace claims that part of what motivated Chrissy Ford was to taint Brett for future abortion battles. Unforgivable.
In April this year, she spoke at the University of Baltimore’s 11th Feminist Legal Theory Conference titled “Applied Feminism and #MeToo.” Lovelace secured a video of her address and provided a clip to Secrets.
In it, she said their goal was to put an “asterisk” on a prediction that Kavanaugh would rule to limit Roe v. Wade, though he had little history of attacking the 1973 decision to protect abortion.
“In the aftermath of these hearings, I believe that Christine’s testimony brought about more good than the harm misogynist Republicans caused by allowing Kavanaugh on the court. We were going to have a conservative [justice] … elections have consequences, but he will always have an asterisk next to his name. When he takes a scalpel to Roe v. Wade, we will know who he is, we know his character, and we know what motivates him, and that is important; it is important that we know, and that is part of what motivated Christine.”
Lovelace explained, “Ford’s audience was not the Senate, as Katz had previously suggested, but the American people. If they could be persuaded that Justice Kavanaugh was a predator, then they might not accept a future ruling by the five Republican-appointed justices altering the right to obtain an abortion established by Roe v. Wade. Had the Senate understood Ford’s real motivation, as described by Katz, it might have appreciated more fully the pressure that ‘organized forces’ were applying.”
Lovelace also said that Katz was angry at the white men in charge of the process in confirming Kavanaugh and that Trump’s team was driven to discredit Ford with “relentless cruelty.”
She said, he wrote, “When I think about her role in history, I don’t think about the white men on the Judiciary Committee, I think of the diverse young people outside the Capitol, standing up for her with their bodies and their words. That is the lasting impact of her bravery.”
