Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve undoubtedly heard about the sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. The accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, has been thrust into the public spotlight as a result.
Look, the entire thing is murky.
But by that same token, Ford, and all sexual assault victims, should still be given an opportunity to be heard. Sexual assault is never okay, and any allegation is worth looking at.
So let’s pump the brakes on presuming innocence or guilt, and refrain from attacking either Ford or Kavanaugh until due process plays out.
You know who does deserve to be attacked? The Democrats who have weaponized an alleged sexual assault victim’s apparent trauma to attack a Supreme Court nominee whose only sin seems to be that he was nominated by President Donald Trump.
It’s disgusting, reprehensible and deserves to be looked into.
That’s exactly what’s going to happen, according to Arkansas Republican Senator Tom Cotton. Appearing on CBS’ “Face The Nation”
on Sunday, Cotton reamed Democrats for failing to uphold the
confidentiality that Ford had requested when she first made her
allegations against Kavanaugh.
Regardless of the veracity of Ford’s accusations, it’s inarguable
that Democrats have opted to use her plight in an attempt to take down
Kavanaugh. One of the tactics that Democrats have been accused of is supplying Ford with lawyers who were looking to serve the Democratic Party before their own client.
Ford's attorney (who also represents Andrew McCabe): <grabs microphone> She doesn't have to answer that.

Remember how the Kavanaugh hearing was initially delayed because Ford didn’t want to fly from California to Washington? Republican Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley apparently made it crystal clear that the GOP was willing to bring the hearing to her in California.
“(Democratic leadership) pointed her to lawyers who lied to her and did not tell her that the committee staff was willing to go to California to interview her,” Cotton said on “Face The Nation.”
Cotton then dropped some bad news on those lawyers.
“Those lawyers are going to face a D.C. bar investigation into their misconduct,” Cotton said. Ouch.
Everything the Democrats have done to stop Kavanaugh from being nominated has had zero repercussions. That may be about to change in massive fashion.And it couldn’t have happened to a nicer bunch of people.
