[Ed. – But aren’t Democrats the ones who say, ‘When they go low, we go high?’]
On Monday in New York, President Donald Trump dismissed the second allegation of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as “totally political.”
That’s in keeping with what appears to be the White House’s pushback against Deborah Ramirez, a former Yale University classmate of Kavanaugh, who has alleged that the Supreme Court nominee exposed himself and put his genitals very close to her during a drunken party in their freshman year. White House counsel Kellyanne Conway said in an interview with CBS on Monday morning that the allegations against Kavanuagh are “starting to feel like a vast left-wing conspiracy.”
There’s an element of truth here: The Kavanaugh confirmation fight — and the way the allegations from Ramirez as well as California professor Christine Blasey Ford, who says Kavanaugh assaulted her when they were in high school, have landed — is absolutely and totally political. But the politicization of this hearing happened a long time ago, and Republicans are at least as culpable for it as are Democrats.
