Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona has stepped into the role of John McCain as Republican scold and saboteur, forever looking out for the interests of … the Democrats, not to mention his own legacy as swamp creature.
And now, the flake from Arizona is helping to sabotage the nomination to the Supreme Court of Brett Kavanaugh. After all, when it comes to white males, there is no statute of limitation on their crimes and evil. They must be stopped. No evidence needed. Due process be damned.
By now you know that one,
Christine Blasey Ford provided a detailed and graphic account published by the Washington Post earlier Sunday recalling the sexual assault she says occurred when both she and Kavanaugh were in high school. …
… Flake … told Politico this: “If they push forward without any attempt with hearing what she’s had to say, I’m not comfortable voting yes…We need to hear from her. And I don’t think I’m alone in this.”
In response, Kavanaugh “categorically and unequivocally” denied the allegation.
MORE at Mediate.
AND, if you miss John McCain, fear not. Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine) & Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) will pick up the slack. Flake, aforementioned, too. Recall how they & the late Johnny defeated legislation to scrap the Affordable Care Act?
It’s not available yet with a Google search, naturally, but meek Mitch McConnell has just come out in a full-throated repudiation of the attack on #Kavanaugh. Good. Now LET’S HAVE A CONFIRMATION VOTE.
It makes a BIG difference how long ago accusations of rape occurred, because of EVIDENCE. At least in a western court of law, you still need evidence to mount a case against a man presumed innocent until proven guilty.
