The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee hearings this week showed that some Vermonters are willing to believe Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser without any evidence or corroboration of her testimony.
The Senate Judiciary Committee advanced Kavanaugh to the full Senate with a favorable recommendation on a party line vote, though Flake provided his “yes” vote on the condition that the FBI would briefly investigation Blasey Ford’s claim.
“A calculated and orchestrated political hit fueled with apparent pent-up anger about President Trump and the 2016 election, fear that has been unfairly stoked about my judicial record, revenge on behalf of the Clintons, and millions of dollars in money from outside, left-wing opposition groups.”
An unknown person located in the House of Representatives on Thursday posted the personal information of Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, as well as Mike Lee and Orrin Hatch of Utah.
In a wild week dominated by such Twitter-rant hashtags as #KavanaughHearings and #MeToo, social media junkies in Vermont were able to follow other important happenings closer to home.
“We never hung out with anyone from Gaithersburg High School, there was never any drug use at our parties, and the fact that she is coming out and saying that is such an insult to Brett and to all of us,” McCaleb said. “It makes our community look bad and our reputation, and Brett was just not like that ever.”
“They’re obstructionists,” Trump said of Democrats regarding the allegations against Kavanaugh. “They’re actually con artists because they know how quality this man is, and they’ve destroyed a man’s reputation, and they want to destroy it even more.”
That’s what Democrats are doing today, by any means necessary. They automatically credit an accusation even though every person the accuser names denies any knowledge of it. Democrats demand a new hearing for an accuser who cannot identify the time or the place of an alleged incident.
Jane Mayer, co-author with Ronan Farrow of the article about the “second accuser” of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, has strong personal and professional ties to Vermont. She also has a journalistic history of combining research with “informed speculation” to reach unproven conclusions.
CNN senior legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said it’s possible the new sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh are “all lies,” then flip-flopped and said there’s a “ring of truth” to them.
Left-wing nonprofit groups that orchestrated disruptions during Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings likely violated IRS rules, which can result in their loss of tax-exempt status.
“[Christine Blasey Ford] and what she talked about is incredibly important, and we need a trauma-informed, much longer investigation done by an appropriate person and not just some withering questioning from disbelieving senators.”
