Hot Takes Abound On Impeaching Kavanaugh For Something That Never Happened

Democrats are in high apoplexy over the accusations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh yet again, per the Washington Post, which forgets some very important information

2020 candidates demand Kavanaugh impeachment after new allegation

Democrats called Sunday for a new investigation of Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh in response to a New York Times piece that said Kavanaugh was seen sexually harassing a female student while at Yale.

Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and former housing and urban development secretary Julián Castro, Democratic presidential candidates, pushed for Kavanaugh’s impeachment. (snip)

“He was put on the Court through a sham process and his place on the Court is an insult to the pursuit of truth and justice,” Harris said in a tweet. “He must be impeached.” (snip)

The (New York) Times piece was adapted from the upcoming book “The Education of Brett M. Kavanaugh: An Investigation.” In it, the reporters said they had corroborated a prior claim of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh, and that they found the FBI interviewed none of the potential witnesses they spoke to.

Deborah Ramirez, a Yale classmate of Kavanaugh’s, had alleged during his confirmation process that he had exposed himself to her in college. Her account had received less attention than Ford’s at the time of his confirmation. Ford had testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“During his Senate testimony, Mr. Kavanaugh said that if the incident Ms. Ramirez described had occurred, it would have been ‘the talk of campus.’ Our reporting suggests that it was,” Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly wrote in the Times essay.

Then you have E.J. Dionne losing it in the opinion section

The Kavanaugh revelations: Why the Supreme Court is broken

We focus, rightly, on the damage President Trump is doing to our institutions. But the wreckage goes beyond Trump and involves the other two branches of government as well. The right wing’s determination to control the Supreme Court is undermining its legitimacy as well as confidence in the U.S. Senate’s approach to confirming nominees.

For the GOP, nothing will be allowed to derail its effort to create a generation-long conservative majority on the court. And that helps to explain why Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh was railroaded through his confirmation hearings last year after what amounted to a pretend inquiry into the various charges against him.

The costs of this approach were underscored this weekend by a New York Times report that offers new corroboration for charges by Deborah Ramirez that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her when both were undergraduates at Yale. In denying the charge, Kavanaugh told the Senate that had it been true, the incident would have been “the talk of the campus.” Times reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly — drawing on their new book, “The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation” — write tellingly: “Our reporting suggests that it was.”

So, see, the whole thing was a sham! Horrible! Hollywood folks have joined the chorus for impeachment. But, see, here’s where a tiny detail derails the whole thing

NYT updates Kavanaugh ‘bombshell’ to note accuser doesn’t recall alleged assault

The New York Times suddenly made a major revision to a supposed bombshell piece late Sunday concerning a resurfaced allegation of sexual assault by Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh — hours after virtually all 2020 Democratic presidential candidates had cited the original article as a reason to impeach Kavanaugh.

The update included the significant detail that several friends of the alleged victim said she did not recall the supposed sexual assault in question at all. The Times also stated for the first time that the alleged victim refused to be interviewed, and has made no comment about the episode.

The Times’ revision says: “Editors’ Note: An earlier version of this article, which was adapted from a forthcoming book, did not include one element of the book’s account regarding an assertion by a Yale classmate that friends of Brett Kavanaugh pushed his penis into the hand of a female student at a drunken dorm party. The book reports that the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say that she does not recall the incident. That information has been added to the article.”

Huh. That’s rather relevant, is it not, and rather destroys any article written in support of the Times’ story, and the calls for impeachment. If Democrats want to go with this, Ramirez will have to be put on the stand under oath. Thinks she wants to do that, when she won’t even be interviewed for the book?

However, the Times’ article also conspicuously did not mention that Pogrebin and Kelly’s book found that the female student in question had denied any knowledge of the alleged episode.

“The book notes, quietly, that the woman Max Stier named as having been supposedly victimized by Kavanaugh and friends denies any memory of the alleged event,” observed Mollie Hemingway. “Seems, I don’t know, significant.”

Democrats should probably move on before they make themselves look even more stupid and just plain sore losers.

    Anyone surprised at this? A leftist rag prints a story leaving out key parts, lets it gain traction and then prints a so-called ‘clarification’ or ‘correction’ knowing the lie has already done as intended. And they get pissed because we call them fake news.

  2. Dana says:

    They know that they can’t impeach and remove the President from office, since the Mueller Report provided no ‘smoking gun,’ so now they want to impeach and remove Justice Kavanaugh, over an alleged but unproven incident that the purported victim does not even remember?

    If someone handed the Democrats a playbook “How to Reunite the Right,” they couldn’t have followed the script any better.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Actually they can impeach tRump based on any number of high crimes and misdemeanors, but what’s the point? Senate Repubs have made it clear they are terrified of tRump and his brownshirts.

      If tRump loses his re-election bid he will be indicted. But it’s likely he’ll make a deal before then, although with his hubris…

      • Doom and Gloom says:

        This is true. I fully expect Trump to be indicted for ginned up crimes after he leaves the office. So with that said. Guess what’s going to happen to the next Democrat to be president. She is going to go down and go down hard.

        See there are 20 blues states waiting to try trump for anything.

        When a Dem leaves office there will be 30 red states waiting to do the same thing. This seems to be what America wants now so I say go for it.

        • Doom and Gloom says:

          In short it will be par for the course for all presidents to resign 10 days before leaving office so their VP can pardon them of all crimes and then the VP will resign and be pardoned by the new Vice President who will be someone like the Plummer from Joes bar and grille.

      • formwiz says:

        Nitwit thinks defying the Left is a crime. In any case, Mule Ears came up empty, so it won’t happen. So did Christine Floozy Ford.

        All the cartoon characters are doing is singing Shut Up And Deal.

        And they know Trump isn’t going to lose. This is just a tantrum by a class of 2 year olds.

        And I thought the bunny suit said Trump hadn’t started to run yet. Looks like we finally pounded something into their collective thick skull.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Except for Obstruction of Justice…

          And Mr. Mueller didn’t look into tRump’s bribery.

          • formwiz says:

            He said nothing about obstruction in the report. He said he had nothing to take to court.

            And which bribery is this, dare we ask?

  3. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Many American males (and most Con Men) consider sexual assault a right, and that women should just shut up about it.

    tRump is an admitted serial sexual assaulter and rapist. Kavanaugh was a drunken sexual assaulter in high-school and college, but it’s OK if you’re a conservative.

    • Liljeffyatemypuppy says:

      Both Trump and Kavanaugh along with the host and all the commenters are better men than you.

      Bwaha! Lolgfy little sissybitch. https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_cool.gif

    • Kye says:

      You leftists need to stop raising a mountain into a mole hill. Trump is NOT a serial sexual assaulter and rapist” and it’s just the type of thing you say when you don’t want anybody but like-minded idiots to listen. Trump is a what used to be called “a pig” when it comes to his inter actions with women but he is NOT a criminal like you paint him. Kavanaugh also was neither and he was exonerated of those false and malicious charges. You and your hyper emotional leftist reputation killers need to tone it down. Your hatred and cruelty toward both Trump and Kavanaugh who HAVE BEEN CONVICTED OF NOTHING shows just how cruel and immoral you can be to these men, their wives and families. You should be ashamed at making cruelty a political weapon against men never proven guilty of the things YOU charge them with. Bearing false witness does not stop being sinful just because it’s part of the Democrat strategy of “whatever it takes”. We all know you guys will lie, cheat, steal, besmirch, frame and gaslight anything and anybody to overturn the election of 2016. You started a civil war the last time you refused to accept the results of an election you lost are you going for another?

      Trump 2020 Keep the leftists crazy four more years!!

    • formwiz says:

      They do? We know you do, but the gender is a little fluid.

      Lesseee now, the Kennedys, Filner, Gropin’ Joe, Whitewater Willie, Abert Gore the Living Redwood.

      All Lefties.

      tRump is an admitted serial sexual assaulter and rapist.

      He is? When did he say this?

      Kavanaugh was a drunken sexual assaulter in high-school and college

      When was this proven? Even Christine Floozy Ford’s father thinks she’s lying.

      Jeffery is going with this even the the Gray Lady’s admitted there’s no there there.

      Stupid is.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Edward Sibley Doucher is soooo ignorant.

        • formwiz says:

          You mean the Kennedys and Willie didn’t go around abusing women?

          And you have yet to tell us when Trump admitted all those dastardly deeds.

          You’re the one who’s ignorant or you’d know if the Gray Lady’s given it up, it’s over.

  4. formwiz says:

    Call the police with your accusations, coward.

    Apparently, somebody already did.

    I’ll even fly you here 1st Class and accompany you to the station to make your charges, coward.

    Sure, you will. At $15/hr trolling, it’ll take you years.

  5. Professor Hale says:

    Jeff is just doing what he always does. Checking off the talking points on as many blogs as he can so when Trump wins again he can say at least he did his part. I don’t believe he even believes what he is typing. So refuting him is pointless. He already knows the truth and doesn’t care about it.
