Joe Biden has a chance to leave his mark on America with a Supreme Court pick.
But in the process Democrats aren’t playing nice.
And Trey Gowdy just exposed the dirty trick Democrats are using during the confirmation process.
The Senate has started holding confirmation hearings for Ketanji Brown Jackson.
She is Joe Biden’s nominee to replace Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer who announced he’s retiring.
Democrats are making a big fuss about how the process must be civil with elected officials sticking to the issues during the questioning and deliberation.
Trey Gowdy instantly recognized their hypocrisy and called them out for it.
Democrats turned Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation into a brutal character assassination process hitting him with everything from false allegations of sexual assault, gang rape, obsessive gambling, and excessive drinking.
“Democrat Senators say they want a civilized hearing for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. That it is time to return to the old days of focusing on judicial philosophy and qualifications and experience rather than degrade the Senate with a hearing that resembles bad, reality TV shows. Me too,” Gowdy said. “I hope the proceeding is dignified. I just wonder where these calls for civility were with the last two GOP nominees. With Brett Kavanaugh, there was a mini-criminal trial, they brought in a prosecutor, a complaining witness, no topic was off limits. Allegations of rape and drunkenness abounded. Senators claimed they want justices who are fair, but some senators act like partisan hacks.”
Corporate-controlled media and Democrats stooped to a new low during the Kavanaugh hearings.
Democrats brought out Christine Blasey Ford and Julie Swetnick to make baseless arguments about his high school partying days including false allegations that he participated in drunken sexual assaults and gang rapes.
And what about Donald Trump’s next squeaky clean Supreme Court nominee?
Amy Coney Barrett was attacked for her Catholic faith when she was picked to replace Ruth Bader Ginsberg.
As much as corporate-controlled media has been trying to pretend Republicans are attacking Biden’s nominees, every Supreme Court confirmation process that’s turned into a circus (Robert Bork, Clarence Thomas, and Brett Kavanaugh) spun out of control because Democrats and the Fake News Corps decide to launch a smear campaign against conservative nominees.
Republicans have been classy enough to never respond in kind to a Democrat nominee.
That’s why it’s ridiculous Democrats have launched a presumptive strike against Republicans who are merely doing their jobs vetting a candidate.
Of course, any confirmation process should remain civil—and Democrats ought to be taking notes so they can try to pull it off the next time a conservative is up for a seat.
