(National Sentinel) Tone Deaf: While it might play well with their deranged Left-wing supporters, one of Democrats’ first priorities when they officially take over the lower chamber in January is to impeach Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Not improve the health care system they broke with Obamacare. Not work on infrastructure legislation. Not pursue pro-growth policies with the Trump administration.
No. None of that is nearly as important as taking revenge against one of the finest jurists ever appointed to the nation’s highest court. Because POTUS Trump put him there.
As The Daily Caller reports:
The top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee was overheard Wednesday discussing Democrats’ plans to investigate and try to impeach Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
New York Democratic Rep. Jerrold Nadler took a series of phone calls while riding the Acela train from New York to Washington, D.C., not knowing that The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway was also on the train and within earshot.
Nadler is set to take over as judiciary chairman as a result of Democrats flipping the House in Tuesday’s midterm elections.
Nadler said during one call that “there’s a real indication that Kavanaugh committed perjury,” noting that the justice allegedly misled the Senate Judiciary Committee about when he first heard about the second of several unproven allegations against him.
The New York Democrat said Kavanaugh was “asked at a committee hearing under oath when he first heard of the subject, he said, ‘When I’d heard of The Atlantic article.’ But there is an email chain apparently dating from well before that from him about ‘How can we deal with this?’”
That’s not even correct. The Atlantic wasn’t the first to report the second allegations; The New Yorker did.
“That’s not technical, that’s real,” Nadler reportedly said, when someone on the other end of the phone objected to his plan.
“The worst-case scenario — or best case depending on your point of view — you prove he committed perjury, about a terrible subject and the Judicial Conference recommends you impeach him. So the president appoints someone just as bad,” Nadler added.
He also rejected conducting the investigation quietly.
“You can’t do it quietly because word will get out that the FBI or the committee is reaching out to witnesses,” he said.
Nadler also trashed the FBI over its four-day probe of Kavanaugh before his confirmation vote in the Judiciary Committee.
“They didn’t even do a half-ass job,” Nadler said. “They didn’t interview 30 witnesses who said, ‘Interview me! I’ve got a lot to say!’” the congressman added.
Uh, a just-released report by the Judiciary Committee found no evidence of wrongdoing by Kavanaugh. And he’s been probed by the FBI more than a half-dozen times prior.
This what Americans have to look forward to for the next two years — these kinds of misplaced priorities thanks to the circus of Democrat buffoons who are now going to be in charge.
