    Feinstein ‘Absolutely’ Will Reopen Kavanaugh Investigation If Dems Retake Senate

    Feinstein ‘Absolutely’ Will Reopen Kavanaugh Investigation If Dems Retake Senate

    Warning shot fired

    During a debate, Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said she approves of reopening the sexual assault investigation against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh if the Democrats win the Senate. From The Washington Post:

    “Oh, I’d be in favor of opening up the allegations. Absolutely,” Feinstein said.

    Kavanaugh’s confirmation proceedings were roiled by allegations of decades-old misconduct from three women, including Christine Blasey Ford, who testified to the Judiciary Committee that a drunken Kavanaugh assaulted her while both were in high school. Kavanaugh vigorously denied all allegations.

    Feinstein’s opponent Kevin de Léon agreed with her and supported reopening the investigation. While de Léon “did not criticize Feinstein during the debate over her handling of Kavanaugh’s confirmation process,” he was “sharply critical during confirmation hearings last month, accusing Feinstein of not adequately questioning the nominee.”

    Feinstein came under fire for holding onto Ford’s letter that she received in July and it somehow found its way into the press. This caused a two week circus which ended with Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

    It didn’t take long for Feinstein to criticize the FBI investigation. From The Hill:

    The senator in a statement denounced the White House for “not allow[ing]” the FBI to interview Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh or one of the women accusing him of sexual assault, Christine Blasey Ford, as part of the ongoing investigation.

    “The White House confirmation that it will not allow the FBI to interview Dr. Blasey Ford, Judge Kavanaugh or witnesses identified by [second Kavanaugh accuser] Deborah Ramirez raises serious concerns that this is not a credible investigation and begs the question: What other restrictions has the White House placed on the FBI?” she said.

    In September, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AK) said “that Feinstein’s office will be investigated to determine whether or not it leaked Ford’s letter to the press.” Cotton claimed that the Democrats “betrayed” and “victimized” Ford “on a search-and-destroy mission for Brett Kavanaugh”

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) cannot believe Feinstein is holding onto this dream:

    “Apparently one kick of a mule is not enough for Senator Feinstein,” Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) said during an appearance Wednesday night on Fox News’s “Hannity” show.

    “Here’s what I want every Democratic candidate for the Senate to be asked tomorrow: Do you agree with Dianne Feinstein?” Graham said. “Are you for more humiliation, degrading treatment of this fine man? Are you for continuing this debacle?”

    I highly doubt the Democrats take the Senate. If anything, the Republicans have a chance to expand their majority in November.

    This is an argument that Judge Kavanaugh shouldn’t be impeached, not an argument that he can’t be.

    For impeachment remains a political remedy: if you got the votes (and the cojones) then you can impeach. The Constitution here provides guidance only, as there is no appeals process following a successful impeachment.

    For the U.S. Senate remains a political body; it’s not a court of law. The Constitution gives it certain enumerated powers and it can use these as it sees fit.

    To date, impeachment has been rare. As it should be, for to casually remove judges for political reasons invites chaos. Beto has just gone on record as saying this restraint should be scrapped and, had he the votes, he would scrap it. Because Trump.

    Fortunately he’s unlikely to be elected and, if elected, very unlikely to have the votes to impeach. Impeachment of Kavanaugh thus remains political fantasy: “If I were King (and Superhero) I’d fix all sorts of things.”

      “The Constitution gives it [the U.S. Senate] certain enumerated powers and it can use these as it sees fit.”

      Good luck with that, as many have problems with the people’s enumerated powers.

    Everything the Dems do to crank up their base cranks up twice as many of the Republican’s base. The symbol of the Justice Dept. is a balance, after all, and to upend the entire concept of presumed innocence in their pursuit of one man lets most reasonable people see right through the Dems.

    They have all these wonderful things they want to do with taxpayer money – but refuse to say just how or where that money will be extracted.
    They claim we should believe all women – while sheltering their own sexual predators.
    They claim they only want to stop the global disaster of climate change – without actually being able to nail down just how much of that change is natural, and how insignificant an impact spending trillions of dollars over centuries would actually have on it.
    And so on…

    Democrats producing all the stock footage that the GOP needs to expand their majority this November. Nice.

    Well it’s a good thing that America will reject “Skelator’s” political affiliation. #stopbrettbashing #dianneisalooser #redTsunami

    Is it just me or does the picture for this thread look just like the old wrinkled alcoholic housewives that were featured on every other episode of Perry Mason? Is there some plant in Kalifornia that manufactures them? You’d think so given the sheer numbers.
