HANNITY: The left's Kavanaugh Tactics Should Disgust Every American

Originally published at: https://www.hannity.com/media-room/hannity-the-lefts-kavanaugh-tactics-should-disgust-every-american/

Judge Brett Kavanaugh is fighting back and standing up for his good name and his reputation, and he is demanding a fair process. He says he won’t be intimidated.

After days of negotiations with the Senate Judiciary Committee, Professor Christine Ford has now agreed to testify about the allegations she made against Judge Kavanaugh. Let me be perfectly clear. These are serious allegations. I’ve said it many times. Professor Ford deserves to be heard, and those allegations and accusations should be taken seriously.

And this coming Thursday, you the American people will be able to hear from both Professor Ford and Judge Kavanaugh in an open setting. Now, Chairman Grassley of the Senate Judiciary Committee, he was right to hold this hearing, and the Republicans have been and are being extremely fair and accommodating and they are taking these allegations seriously.

But we need to a step back and we need to remember what we’re talking about here. These are 35-year-old sexual misconduct allegations made by Professor Ford to congressional Democrats. Now, the claims date back to when Ford and Kavanaugh were in high school.

Senator Dianne Feinstein, she has been aware of Professor Ford’s allegations since July. She sat on them. She kept them a secret, until after Kavanaugh’s public hearing and after lengthy meetings with Judge Kavanaugh.

In fact, Dianne Feinstein refused to give Senate Republicans – her colleagues – the full unredacted letter where accusations were first made back in July until today.

Now, Professor Ford cannot remember the date or location of the alleged incident. The four witnesses that Ford herself listed to corroborate her claims, they are all now on record denying what Ford is alleging.

Real smears, real character assassination, and it happens predictably every election season and it happens with Supreme Court nominees.

This is a gutter politics at its worst and sadly, we are going to see more and more of these tactics as we now march, what, 43 days or so towards the midterms.
