If you thought that the Democrats may have given up their quest to get Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, think again.
They are still trying to target him.
They’re claiming that he committed perjury during his hearing testimony.
But there’s that small problem with facts again. They can’t point to any statement.
From Fox News:
A freshman Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee told constituents the panel will “likely” investigate Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh for purportedly committing perjury during his confirmation hearings last fall.
In a video sent out by conservative activist group America Rising, Rep. Joe Neguse, D-Colo., was recorded Friday saying he believes the Supreme Court justice committed perjury while under questioning from Congress — though did not point to a specific statement.
“There’s no question [Kavanaugh] committed perjury during the confirmation hearings and so forth,” Neguse said, responding to a question about the possibility of impeaching Kavanaugh. “I think the Judiciary Committee is likely to take that up.”
If there’s “no question,” then one would think it would be very easy to list what the perjury was.
But no such luck.
Democrats did everything they could to derail the process and prevent Kavanaugh from being confirmed, but they thankfully failed.
Days after the midterm elections in November, now-Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., was overheard on an Amtrak train discussing the possibility of impeaching Kavanaugh, while Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez in December spoke about reform proposals to the Supreme Court.
But with Democrats assuming the House majority earlier this month, and with it the power to investigate and subpoena witnesses, the Kavanaugh controversy has largely taken a backseat to other Trump-related issues like his tax returns and alleged Russia connections.
Just what we need – another Democratic witch hunt that has no end and no evidence.
Fortunately, the Senate is in the hands of the Republicans so Democrats’ plans are likely to fail.
