McConnell spoke on the Senate floor saying that the Democrat strategy is to “shoot first and correct the facts later.”
On Monday, Senate Majority Leader “Cocaine” Mitch McConnell(R-KY) gave a scathing speech on the floor of the Senate targeting Democrats and the Media(D) for resurfaced allegations of sexual impropriety in the 1980s by Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
McConnell says that it felt like the movie Groundhog Day when a new allegation with scant evidence popped up in the New York Times a year after Justice Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing.
The treatment of Justice Kavanaugh was absolutely shameful. Senator Dianne Feinstein sat on the allegation made by Professor Christine Blasey Ford until the 11th hour, a slew of slanderous and demonstrably false allegations were leveled against Brett Kavanaugh, a former child actor used the hearing to make herself relevant again, and there were mass protests by women who had been sexually assaulted who equated Kavanaugh to their attackers and/or were concerned that the Supreme Court would re-examine Roe v Wade.
Professor Ford’s uncorroborated account was exposed as dubious in her testimony that was filled with holes. She had accused a drunk Brett Kavanaugh of attempting to rape her in the early 1980s, yet she couldn’t give a date, an address, or who else was present at the party other than the four individuals that don’t recall any of what she claimed as true including that there was a party.
The other accusation against Kavanaugh was by Deborah Ramirez who attended Yale at the same time as Kavanaugh. She came forward after some time thinking about it and then lawyering up, that Kavanaugh exposed his penis to her at a college party during her freshman year 1983/84. She came forward to New Yorker reporters Ronan Farrow and Jayne Meyer. Farrow was well-known for his #MeToo exposés.
The “new” allegation was even sketchier than the previous two because it was brought forward by Max Stier, a former Clinton lawyer during the Whitewater investigation, and the woman herself said that she didn’t recall the incident. Neither of them spoke to the New York Times.
Senate Majority Leader McConnell blasted the Media(D) which ran with the story and had to issue an embarrassing correction 24 hours later. He then took aim at the Democrat presidential hopefuls who are calling for Justice Kavanaugh to be impeached over what amounts to be unsubstantiated rumors.
That was fantastic!
Here is the full transcript:
“For anybody who’s been reading the news the past few days, it’s probably felt a little like Groundhog Day. Because, over the last couple of days, leading Democrats have tried to grab onto yet another poorly-sourced, thinly-reported, unsubstantiated allegation against Justice Brett Kavanaugh. There they go again. Call it a one-year anniversary re-enactment. Senate Democrats re-opening the sad and embarrassing chapter they wrote last September.
“The latest allegation was blasted out by a major newspaper despite the apparent lack of any corroborating evidence whatsoever. The reporting was so thin, the story ran not in the news section, but on the opinion page. In fact, they’ve already had to issue an enormous correction. The writers conveniently failed to note that the supposed victim herself declined to be interviewed. And several of her friends say she has no memory of any such thing happening.
“We all remember this pattern from last time around: Shoot first and correct the facts later. And here’s another familiar pattern: Just like last September, little things like facts and evidence didn’t stop Democrats from rushing to exploit this. Even as the media was trying to backpedal, a number of the Democrat presidential candidates were hysterically calling for Justice Kavanaugh to be impeached. That includes several of our own Senate colleagues. And even after the massive correction, no one in that group has backed off of their ridiculous threat.
“This laughable suggestion is already earning scorn throughout the country, across the political spectrum. A majority of Senators — and the American people — rightly rejected these politics of unsubstantiated personal destruction last year. It’s just as transparent and self-serving today. But it would be a mistake to dismiss this as a bad case of sour grapes. This is not just a left-wing obsession with one man. It is part of a deliberate effort to attack judicial independence.
“Six of the Democrat presidential candidates — plus one who has now quit to run for the Senate — have publicly flirted with packing the Supreme Court. Court-packing. Today’s bold new Democrat idea is a failed power grab from the 1930s. Just a few weeks ago, some Senate Democrats nakedly threatened the Supreme Court justices in writing. Our colleagues sent the Court an outlandish brief, gravely intoning that ‘the Supreme Court is not well.’ Here was the punchline: Either issue rulings we like or we’ll pack the court. This is not normal political behavior. These are the actions of a political party whose agenda is so alien to the Constitution that they feel threatened by fair and faithful judges.
“Well, I would say this: When the simple notion that judges should be faithful to the Constitution looks like an attack on your agenda, maybe it’s your agenda that needs a makeover, not our independent judiciary. When you are this willing to launch unhinged personal attacks, you reveal a whole lot more about your own radicalism than about the men and women you target. This is my commitment, and the commitment of all my Republican colleagues: As long as we remain in the Senate, we will fight to preserve our fair and independent judiciary.”
