It’s Time to Investigate All the Senators on the Judiciary Committee
The Democrats are threatening to impeach Brett Kavanaugh if the Republicans vote to put him on the Supreme Court and the Democrats retake the House of Representatives.
There’s also the threat to bring criminal charges against Kavanaugh in the county in which Dr. Ford said the assault against her took place.
The problem with these threats is that there is no physical evidence, eyewitness testimony, and a lack of consistency in Dr. Ford’s numerous claims and testimony. Rachel Mitchell, the sex crimes prosecutor hired by Senate Republicans to question Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh, concluded. “A ‘he said, she said’ case is incredibly difficult to prove. But this case is even weaker than that…I do not think that a reasonable prosecutor would bring this case based on the evidence before the Committee.”
Before you read the details of Dr. Mitchell’s report (below), consider some of these Democrats who have uninvestigated ethical skeletons in their closet as detailed by Ben Shapiro:
- Sen. Dianne Feinstein, why aren’t you calling for a more complete FBI investigation into the alleged Chinese spy in your San Francisco office who served as your driver as well as a liaison to the Asian-American community in California?
- Sen. Dick Durbin? In 2014, an investigation by the Chicago Tribune found that your wife lobbied on behalf of clients who then received federal funding you promoted. Your office announced the grants, but you claimed you did “nothing in terms of securing the money.” So, how about a full investigation to get to the bottom of the matter?
- Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand: In 2015, you received a gift worth nearly $500,000 from your husband’s British parents. That was more than the gross income of you and your husband that year. Your spokesperson declined to say why your in-laws gave the money or what you did with it. So, how about it? Full FBI investigation or you’re guilty of something nefarious, right?
- What about you, Sen. Richard Blumenthal? You asked Judge Kavanaugh whether he knew the legal term falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus – “false on one thing, false on all.” Well, senator, you’ve stated that you served in Vietnam despite the fact that you sought multiple deferments and then signed up for the Marine Reserve to avoid going to war. That seems rather dishonest. How about the FBI checks into your comments? You know, for the sake of honesty.
- And what about you, Sen. Kamala Harris? When you took over the California attorney general’s office you announced a statewide task force to tackle mortgage fraud. Then your mortgage fraud office did pretty much nothing. For years. So, how about an FBI investigation into what looks like a slam-dunk case of … something.
- And you, Sen. Cory Booker? What about an FBI investigation into an admission you made in 1992, writing for the Stanford student newspaper? You said that you groped one of your friends. “After having my hand pushed away once, I reached my mark,” you wrote. “Our groping ended soon and while no ‘relationship’ ensued, a friendship did. You see, the next week in school she told me that she was drunk that night and didn’t really know what she was doing.” Sounds just like something Spartacus would do. How about an FBI investigation into your admitted sexual assault against a drunk girl in high school?
- And you, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse: According to Politico, as lawmakers closed in on a deal over a bill called the 21st Century Cures Act, you bought shares in pharmaceutical companies. You were sitting on a Senate committee overseeing health care at the time. The day President Obama signed the bill, you started selling your pharmaceutical stock. How about we have the FBI check out your phone logs? (Ben Shapiro/Fox News)
