As if anyone needed reminding, this whole Brett Kavanaugh debacle started when somebody leaked a letter that Sen. Dianne Feinstein had been sitting on for six weeks detailing an alleged sexual assault by Kavanaugh while he was in high school.
That was it — that’s why the Senate Judiciary Committee bent over backward to get Dr. Christine Blasey Ford to testify, even if they had to fly to California to interview her.
But as plenty have noticed, the goalposts keep moving; after Kavanaugh angrily defended himself against allegations of sexual assault, the focus turned from his testimony to his temperament — was he just too out-of-control to serve on the Supreme Court?
And now the New York Times is looking into a time Kavanaugh threw ice on a bar patron back in college because they have to print something while the FBI does its seventh background check.
Sen. Cory “Spartacus” Booker came right out and admitted what most of us know; it’s no longer about whether Ford’s accusations are true, but whether Kavanaugh is the right person for the job — and as he’s a conservative, or course he’s not.
.@CoryBooker: “My hope is that… we ask ourselves whether this [Kavanaugh] is the right person… not whether he’s innocent or guilty… but ultimately whether enough questions have been raised…”
TFW you admit the silent part of the strategy out loud.pic.twitter.com/5D6x0TPx07

Yeah, Booker, you were supposed to keep that part about his innocence or guilt not mattering quiet.
TFW you realize Democrats are dog-whistling to MSM to change the narrative before the FBI releases their report.

Aka he’s innocent

Democrats certainly seem to be less-than-confident in what another round of FBI interviews on which they insisted will turn up.
This is where you go when you can't prove ANY of the allegations you've planted.

“He used language that frankly shocked a lot of us” — are you OK, Cory? Would you like a tissue?
If he is guilty.. then he is not the right person. If he is innocent then I believe he has more than proven that he is capable… now Cory Booker on the other hand…..

So…he's a no even if Kavanaugh is innocent. I see.

Is Cory Booker the same Cory Booker who is currently accused of groping women? Cool

Dude talking about temperament when he throws a tantrum once a week.

Simply cannot wait for whatever scene @CoryBooker is planning at the vote. Walkout? Done that. Movie reference? Did it. Maybe he’ll just make his own head explode this time. Will be fun to watch. I know he won’t disappoint…

Enough questions have been raised about the Democrat Senators on the Judiciary Committee to raise serious questions about their credibilty!

Notice that the validity of the questions raised isn't included in that judgement.

You had plenty of time to ask questions. Sit down
— Tim Clark ?? (@Russianbot6000) October 2, 2018
You raised plenty of questions in hours of testimony and over 1200 written questions – but you failed to ask the hard ones? What did you ask – his favorite color and food?

Spartacus had his chance to ask relevant questions. All of the Democrats did.they chose to grandstand and speak negative about POTUS instead. Can't wait until the nomination.
