Search And Destroy By Any Means Necessary

Dems: ‘Block Kavanaugh,’ ‘Time Is Critical If You Have Information And Do Not Want to See Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court’


SEN. LINDSEY GRAHAM (R-SC):We’re at a new standard here. You destroy man’s life. You say he’s unfit to judge you, because of the way you treated him. We’re not going to play that game…My response to Senator Hirono is…you spoke truth.  You said the goal was to delay this hearing to draw it out past the midterms, keep this seat open, have it replaced by a Democrat in 2020. I’m offended by the fact that anybody would hold it against Brett Kavanaugh to be upset by the way he was treated.” (ABC’s “This Week,” 9/30/2018)


The Democrats’ Goal?

BRIAN FALLON, FORMER SPOKESMAN FOR HILARY CLINTON, ERIC HOLDER AND CHUCK SCHUMER: “Saving the Supreme Court from Trump’s clutches has always involved a very complicated two-step: first, block Kavanaugh, then fight like hell to win back the Senate.  If Kavanaugh drops out, we’re halfway there. If Democrats are able to win back the Senate, we’d have a path to blocking Trump from picking any of the archconservatives on his shortlist.”  (“The Democratic Dream: Defeat Kavanaugh, Win the Senate and Stop Trump Supreme Court Picks,” The New York Times, 9/25/2018)

SEN. MAZIE HIRONO (D-HI): “I think we’ve had those kinds of vacancies before, and we certainly had over a one-year vacancy with Merrick Garland.  So the world does not come to an end because we don’t fill all of the nominees.” (“The Democratic Dream: Defeat Kavanaugh, Win the Senate and Stop Trump Supreme Court Picks,” The New York Times, 9/25/2018)


House Dems Promise MORE Investigations IF They Take Over House & FBI Doesn’t Give Them the Results They Want

REP. JERRY NADLER (D-NY), House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member:  “We would have to investigate any credible allegations of perjury and other things not properly looked into before.” (ABC’s “This Week,” 9/30/2018)


A Look At Some of Democrats’ Tactics

“Andrea Caputo Rose, executive of a Washington, D.C.,-based legal recruiting firm called Rose Legal Search, was scrambling to find someone to corroborate the meaning of certain entries in Kavanaugh’s high school yearbook. Anyone who could confirm the salacious meaning, Rose wrote in an email obtained by the Washington Examiner, should contact Debra Katz, the lawyer of one of Kavanaugh’s accusers… “In regard to Julie Swetnick, whose allegations of drugging and gang ("train") rape just came out through Michael Avenatti today, please also let me or Debra Katz know if you can [corroborate] any of her allegations,” Rose wrote. “Time is criticial [sic] if you have information and do not want to see Brett Kavanaugh sit on the Supreme Court for the next 40 years.” (“‘Corroboration Needed’: Kavanaugh Opponents Scrambled To Define ‘Devil's Triangle’ Before Hearing,” Washington Examiner, 9/29/2018)

“Personal information of Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham, Mike Lee and Orrin Hatch were posted by an unknown person located in the House of Representatives on Thursday during the hearing of Supreme Court Nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh…The information, which supposedly included home addresses and phone numbers, was posted - or doxxed - on the senators’ respective Wikipedia pages, where users are allowed to update the information at any time.” (“Republican Senators Doxxed On Wikipedia By Someone From House Of Representatives After Kavanaugh Hearing, Fox News, 9/28/2018)
