This is intimidation of a Supreme Court justice

National Review: "Brett Kavanaugh Faces Another Round of Smears and Intimidation."  This is in regard to 4500 so-called "tips" to an FBI hotline.  Not only were they all bogus but every Senator had access to the FBI's report:
Mike Davis, who served as chief counsel for nominations on the Senate Judiciary Committee during the Kavanaugh hearings, tells National Review that there was a summary of all 4,500 tips in the FBI’s report, which was available to all 100 U.S. senators.
“They printed out the entire tip-line summary,” says Davis. “Every senator had full access to read those things if they wanted to.”
Davis makes a crucial point about Senate Democrats now expressing outrage: “If there was anything that caught their attention, they could have flagged it for further investigation.”

Every whack-job in the world called into that thing. That’s why there were 4,500 [tips],” says Davis. “Grassley’s team went through the entire tip-line. It was nonsense.”
This is all just the latest ploy to stir up the Democrat base and work up the argument for court-packing.  And if a good man like Kavanaugh has to go through this character assassination yet again, well, you need to break some eggs to make an omelet. 

That liar Christine Blasey-Ford and her lawyers need to be sued.

What irks me a bit - if Sotomayor & Kagan reflexively take the lib line and rarely publish their own opinions, why shouldn't Kav do the same and just vote with Clarence Thomas all the time? The fact that he hasn't done so to date makes me wonder why Whitehouse et. al are doing this, besides the fact they're complete scumbags.

I don't think I'll ever forgive Sotomayor from the unique legal argument that the Colorado baker had to bake a cake.

Meh. Kind of hard to feel sorry for Kavanaugh. No balls. Like ACB.
