Republicans enjoy being “tough on crime” EXCEPT when Republicans commit crimes.
Trump — who has been often accused of sexual assault, and who has admitted grabbing women’s private parts without their permission — nominated for a lifetime appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court Brett Kavanaugh, who has been accused of sexually assaulting women when he was younger. Those accusations were very highly believable. His nomination was rushed through with a RIDICULOUSLY and DELIBERATELY SKIMPY investigation that was pre-determined to give him a free pass to become a Supreme Court Justice. (See the “Judicial” part of this blog for some posts about that.)
It is clear that when Kavanaugh testified to Congress about the several women’s very credible accusations, HE LIED UNDER OATH. Someone who repeatedly sexually assaults women and LIES UNDER OATH while testifying to Congress does NOT belong on the Supreme Court
Among the women who have accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault are Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez, and Julie Swetnick.
Now several more women have come forward with very highly believable accusations. In mid-September 2019 the New York Times published new evidence that the FBI refused to contact the dozens of witnesses who wanted to corroborate Deborah Ramirez’s accusation that Brett Kavanaugh had assaulted her.
Now some people are calling for Congress — especially the House Judiciary Committee — to immediately start an investigation into Kavanaugh’s SEXUAL ASSAULT AND PERJURY so Congress can impeach Kavanaugh and remove him from the Supreme Court.
ONLY STRONG PUBLIC PRESSURE for investigating and impeaching Kavanaugh will bring justice to these women and our nation!
During this era when Trump is repeatedly violating the Constitution’s requirements for “checks and balances” by preventing Congress from exercising its Constitutional responsibilities, WE MUST STOP THIS ADDITIONAL ABUSE of Trumpism over the rule of law. WE MUST DEMAND CONGRESS DO ITS JOB and stop letting Trump and his Republican cronies trample on Congress and the Constitution. We must DEMAND that House Judiciary Chair Jerrold Nadler and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi DO THEIR JOBS and restore the legitimacy of the Supreme Court.
