The Left Smears Justice Kavanaugh—Again

AMAC Exclusive Seamus Brennan

Kavanaugh

Nearly three years after the most ruthless and disgraceful Supreme Court confirmation process in American history, Democrats and the media are still waging war on Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Even though their attempt to smear Kavanaugh as a serial rapist has been exposed as a fraudulent and politically motivated attempt to keep him off the Court, the media now appears to be doubling down.

On July 22, the New York Times published a report on the FBI’s handling of tips they received regarding Kavanaugh’s past, specifically noting that the most “relevant” information received by the FBI was “referred to White House lawyers in the Trump administration.” The report, which details a June 30 letter from the FBI to two Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee, seeks to manufacture the narrative that Kavanaugh’s confirmation process was illegitimate because information regarding his background investigation was relayed to the White House.

“The letter left uncertain whether the F.B.I. itself followed up on the most compelling leads,” the Times reported. “In addition to offering shows of support, the Trump White House carefully controlled the investigations into Mr. Kavanaugh’s past. After Dr. Ford came forward, Mr. Trump’s staff tried to limit the number of people the F.B.I. interviewed as part of that probe. Only after an outcry from Democrats over the president’s approach did the administration say the agency could conduct a more open investigation.”

The Times’s account of the Kavanaugh investigation is not only misleading and conspicuous in its omission of key details that would have helped to absolve both the Trump legal team and Justice Kavanaugh—it also marks a continuation of the left’s relentless crusade to smear and discredit conservative Supreme Court Justices.

The report excludes the key fact that the FBI’s investigation had always been intended to be limited in time and scope: members of both parties agreed that the investigation would last only one week and would consist only of “current” and “credible” allegations made against then-Judge Kavanaugh. Former Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) told CNN during the heart of the confirmation process that the “compromise” he struck with Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) and the Democrats was based on the understanding that “we would have something limited by time” that would not open the door to additional “outlandish” allegations being made.

Additionally, information that the FBI received through its tip line was made available to every Member of Congress prior to Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote. As CNN reported, the FBI’s report to Congress included “not only the interview summaries but also information that came in to the FBI’s tip line.” Mike Davis, who served as Senator Chuck Grassley’s (R-IA) chief counsel for nominations during the Kavanaugh vetting process, assured the National Review that “every senator had full access to read those things if they wanted to,” stating that “if there was anything that caught their attention, they could have flagged it for further investigation.”

Given these facts, the Times’ and the left’s not-so-subtle implication that the Trump White House possessed FBI information that delegitimized Kavanaugh is preposterous. In reality, the FBI’s interviews and investigative inquiries helped to clear Kavanaugh’s name, and all accusations against him have been debunked—something the left-wing media complex has stubbornly refused to accept from the very beginning.

The media’s latest series of attacks against Kavanaugh is not occurring in a vacuum: for months, the left has been amplifying their efforts to stifle and intimidate conservative justices in hopes of keeping them in line. Earlier this year, Amazon removed, without explanation, a documentary about Justice Clarence Thomas from their platform. In 2020, as the Supreme Court was hearing an abortion-related case, then-Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer threatened two Trump-appointed justices by name in an unprecedented attack on judicial independence: “I want to tell you, Gorsuch. I want to tell you, Kavanaugh. You have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price!” A Democrat Congressman who co-sponsored a court-packing bill this spring issued a more veiled, but equally disconcerting, threat against conservative justices: “The Court needs to know that the people are watching,” he warned.

As the high court prepares to hear hot-button cases on abortion and Second Amendment rights this fall, attacks like the Times’ Kavanaugh hit piece are hardly surprising. Justice Kavanaugh courageously resisted the left’s intimidation campaign during his contemptible 2018 confirmation process. Conservatives must hope that now that he is on the Court, he shows the same firmness and fortitude in defense of our Constitution.

Well since they haven’t got President Trump to slander, looks like justice Kavanaugh has inherited their wrath. Why don’t they get ar to doing the peoples business? The people haven’t asked them to do this. Anything they can think up to do, to keep from doing what they’re being paid for. 2022 is just around the corner!!!!!

I think it seems to me that the DemocRats engage in political savagery and character sabotage to cover up the degree those failings are such an integral part of their political strategy. The Kavanaugh allegations were so lacking in factual backup, it surprised me that the Media played along with the “story” as long as they did. But I guess that pretty much exposes how tied in to DemocRat propaganda so many news outlet use for “news.” I assume the DemocRats are getting desperate to find dirt to sling at the conservative Republicans, so now they are trying to resurrect old false dirt to counter the dismal functioning of Joe Hidin’ Biden. I think most (not all) of the media is locked in to DemocRat propaganda (to mention ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, NEW YORK SLIMES (ergo TIMES), WASHINGTON POST(erior). LA SLIMES, and etc.

Why is it they can find stuff from years ago on anyone involving Trump. But they cannot find anything that Joe & Hunter blatantly did in the last couple of years.

OH, I’m pretty certain they have found it, but political fraud especially in the case where the overwhelming majority of the News Media covers up (rather than covers honestly) the shortcoming and illegal activities of the Joe Hidin’ Biden family makes it difficult to process legally in a reasonable stretch of time..

Why would the left smear him? He is one of the most liberal members. During his confirmation they made him look like an idiot. Now on the bench he supports his declared enemies. He has been broken or held hostage. Shameful.

The socialist democrats are akin to ravening wolves, wicked at heart and opposed to the truth, they wish to injure you, and that for their own gain.
And in order to deal with ravening wolves, is to eliminate them.

When you insert a “star” in the right place your statement is a little clearer definitively. Who says the Democrats don’t fit “star” in their written description?? LOL

That is how Communism functions. I prefer a Constitutional Democracy based on a one-man/one-vote criteria …. which did NOT happen in that last POTUS election

It just keeps getting worse each day. Republicans (Conservatives) need to get in power, and it is time to cleanse the government, including the House, Senate, Executive, FBI, CIA of these anti-American values. INCLUDING, Term Limits, and stopping all lifetime severance pay and insurance to former Senators and Congressmen. Thank You for your service, time for new elected officals, and now you must re-enter public life, and pay your own way.

Hal

Yep! Term limits for ALL elected government officials. But we need a fair and honest election/voting system since the one we last had for the POTUS election was a huge fraud. Our Constitutional Democracy vitally depends on getting the voting system right … and pronto. Anyone that believes the last POTUS election was honest and not rigged will thousands of illicit votes is too stupid to vote themselves OR are Democrats (same thing?).

The Biden Administration has again stooped to new lows. They are evil incarnate. These people will do or say anything to stay in power. We need term limits to rid ourselves of some of these career politicians.

EXACTLY – 3 letter agencies. DOE, DOE, ATF, FBI, and HUNDREDS more. Massive un-employment needed to be created, in DC, by Trump. He did NOT do it. NOW, who will ?
