Perhaps being a sore loser runs in the family on the left side of the aisle.
For years now, we have been inundated with a general sense of malaise from the democrats, who are still hungover from the 2016 election, figuratively speaking. Their anger over the loss of Hillary Clinton during that contest has turned to rage in the late stages of 2018, with every shred of “resistance” rhetoric being hurled at whoever today’s conservative punching bag is.
Brett Kavanaugh and Susan Collins come to mind this week.
Trending: Science is Settled
Now, in a telegraphed bit of impending nonsense, the democrats are claiming that if they take control of Congress in 2018, (big “if”), they will proceed to attempt to remove Brett Kavanaugh from the Supreme Court through yet another investigation into 36 year old claims of sexual harassment.
House Democrats will open an investigation into accusations of sexual misconduct and perjury against Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh if they win control of the House in November, Representative Jerrold Nadler, the New York Democrat in line to be the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, said on Friday.
Speaking on the eve of Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote this weekend, Mr. Nadler said that there was evidence that Senate Republicans and the F.B.I. had overseen a “whitewash” investigation of the allegations and that the legitimacy of the Supreme Court was at stake. He sidestepped the issue of impeachment.
With an FBI investigation already having been completed, it will be doubtful that whichever authorities contacted by the democrats will be able to make much headway in the nearly ancient case. Only the densest of democrats would argue with that statement, leading many to believe, logically, that their threat is nothing more than an attempt to smear Judge Kavanaugh even after having passed 6 or more background checks after a dozen years of service on one of the nation’s most prestigious courts.
