The left is again regurgitating the vomit of fake accusations against Justice Brett Kavanaugh. And the Democrats running for President are ready to impeach Justice Kavanaugh. Of course, there is no evidence for the allegations and it is important to begin with what the goal is. As Paul Mirengoff writes over at Powerline:
The left has managed to keep Anita Hill’s trivial and uncorroborated allegations against Clarence Thomas alive and talked about for nearly 30 years. Thus, it’s not surprising that the left is still out to smear Brett Kavanaugh along similar lines. The focus now is on how Kavanaugh behaved, or is alleged to have behaved, towards women at parties during his freshman year at Yale 35 years (or so) ago.
The recent groundless attack has numerous problems but look even at the title: “Brett Kavanaugh Fit In With the Privileged Kids. She Did Not.” What does class background have to do with sexual assault? Of course, the biggest problem is not that the story's source is Max Stier, an activist Democrat who worked to defend President Bill Clinton from a multitude of sexual assault cases, but that the alleged victim denies the story. Only under pressure did the New York Times add this Editor’s Note (emphasis added):
An earlier version of this article, which was adapted from a forthcoming book, did not include one element of the book's account regarding an assertion by a Yale classmate that friends of Brett Kavanaugh pushed his penis into the hand of a female student at a drunken dorm party. The book reports that the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say that she does not recall the incident.
As Mollie Hemingway sums it up over at the Federalist:
To repeat: Several of her friends said she does not recall it.
So to summarize, the only new claim in the new book is that a Democratic attorney told two senators that he saw an incident where a third party allegedly did something to Kavanaugh and the young woman. In their book, the authors are upset that this claim didn’t lead to a massive FBI investigation, although they don’t explain why they think it should have.
[The article and book authors] Pogebrin and Kelly left the victim’s denial out of their New York Times story. It is unclear why the reporters and editors allowed the [initial] story to be published without this salient fact that they conceded, albeit briefly, in their own book.
We’ll conclude with another Powerline author, John Hinderaker, that sums up well this latest groundless accusation in a post entitled DEMOCRATS HAVEN’T GIVEN UP ON SMEARING KAVANAUGH:
Beyond that, I have no particular comment, other than to note that we are reminded, once again, that there is literally no depth to which the Democratic Party will not sink in pursuit of power.
