Brett Kavanaugh, Trump’s appointee for the U.S. Supreme Court, and his (alleged? –not in my view) sexual assault and attempted rape of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford have been in the news nonstop since Ford appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Sept. 27, 2018. I believe Dr. Ford. I don’t believe Kavanaugh. He is a liar.
In a Wall Street Journal article, he wrote that he’s an “independent, impartial judge.” HA! Brett Kavanaugh tried to undo an earlier rant before the Committee in which he claimed that Democrats and Hillary Clinton were to blame for making charges against his confirmation to be on the High Court. Democrats plotted to demean him, he said, and they accused him of being an excessive drinker when he was a student at Yale University. That’s impartial??
Kavanaugh repeatedly said he was merely a beer drinker and liked beer. He asked Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, a Democrat who was questioning him, “Do you like beer, Senator, or not?” What gall! Kavanaugh was the one being questioned and his response was a diversion as we soon discovered when his Yale roommate James Roche declared that Kavanaugh while a student was a falling-down drunk and came into their room and often vomited after drinking too much. Roche wrote in an op-ed for Slate magazine: “Brett Kavanaugh stood up under oath and lied about his drinking and about the meaning” of sexual references in the Yale yearbook. “He did so baldly, without hesitation or reservation. In his words and his behavior, Judge Kavanaugh has shown contempt for the truth, for the process, for the rule of law, and for accountability… His willingness to lie to avoid embarrassment throws doubt on his denials about the larger questions of sexual assault.”
So Kavanaugh lied. A SCOTUS nominee is a liar. And the lies surrounding this nominee and the case itself are rampant. The U.S. Senate in a procedural move voted in favor of moving Kavanaugh’s nomination to a final vote. That vote will be held on October 6, 2018—tomorrow. I have little hope that the Senate will stand up against a liar and accused sexual predator. Looks like Anita Hill and Clarence Thomas all over again. Sickening.
