A coordinated effort to destroy Supreme Court Justice Bret Kavanaugh has been discovered.
Liberals who want to discredit the Justice launched a full scale campaign to call into doubt all of his future decisions.
They did that by filing 83 frivolous complaints against him.
As with The Big Sex Smear, however, it is more important for the Left that these complaints are made than that they be legitimate. Remember, the ends justify the means. Now, when Kavanaugh votes or writes an opinion in a way the Left doesn’t like, it will say, “Yeah, but he’s the one who had those misconduct complaints, remember?”
A brief look at these “complaints” exposes a coordinated and planned campaign: an orchestrated political hit.
Some complaints have nothing to do with Kavanaugh at all. One complainant says that former President Barack Obama fired him from “many jobs” and that Republican and Democratic “criminal senators” are trying to “criminalize the court system.” Another suggests reforms in the process of filing judicial misconduct complaints.
Some of the complaints say nothing more than Kavanaugh “lied during testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee.” Another says simply that Kavanaugh’s “actions and statements” during that hearing are “prima facie evidence of a clear violation of judicial ethics. He should be suspended!” Three complaints are identical: “Please fully investigate the testimony he has given to the Senate.” Not much to go on there.
One complaint claims that Kavanaugh committed perjury on “many occasions” and, as evidence, offered links to articles in Mother Jones, Slate, and Gentlemen’s Quarterly.
Several complaints include the identical six-paragraph rant about Kavanaugh’s testimony, followed by identical citations to nine provisions of the Code of Judicial Conduct. These complainants, who live from Maryland to Oregon, each declared “under penalty of perjury” that the “facts alleged within are my own personal knowledge based on my viewing of the hearing.”
What are the odds that each of these complainants, independently, had precisely the same six-paragraph recollection of that hearing? Or that these complainants would (again, independently) each misspell Kavanaugh’s name in the same way as “Cavanaugh”?
f you believe any of that that, I have some ocean-front property in Utah for sale.
Seven of the complaints are postcards, identical down to their blue and red lettering, objecting that Kavanaugh “behave[d] disrespectfully towards Democratic members of the Senate Judiciary Committee.”
To call this reckless harassment is to give reckless harassment a bad name. This ongoing attack not only undermines the public’s trust in the judiciary, it also distorts and weakens the process for identifying genuine instances of judicial misconduct.
