Liberal Dark Money Group Run By Clinton Aide Continues Groundless Attack on Kavanaugh

Despite criminal referrals and the involvement of ne'er-do-wells like Michael Avenatti, one group, “Demand Justice,” is continuing its groundless attacks on Justice Brett Kavanaugh.  As Ashe Schow writes in the Dailywire in an article entitled “Former Hillary Clinton Spox Is Trying To Get Brett Kavanaugh Fired From His Teaching Job:”

Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was accused of sexual misconduct just after President Donald Trump nominated him last summer. The allegation didn’t surface until just before he was supposed to be confirmed, delaying confirmation to allow time for a contrived hearing of the original allegations and for more “accusers” to come forward. Naturally, more did, yet their stories were even more unbelieveable than the first. One woman couldn’t remember if Kavanaugh was the man who harassed her, yet media outlets printed her allegation. Two other women came forward as clients of disgraced attorney Michael Avenatti. He and one of the clients have been referred for criminal investigation over the allegations.

Kavanaugh was confirmed, yet those who insist we believe every woman who makes an accusation (especially against a Republican) still believe he is, in fact, a sexual abuser even though no evidence exists to prove that claim. The people the accusers said could corroborate their stories could not do so.

Kavanaugh, now a Supreme Court Justice, was offered a summer teaching job at George Mason University. Activists quickly spun into action to get him fired, and a liberal “dark money” group stepped in to help.

Fortunately the George Mason University is standing firm and with good reason.  As George Mason University President Angel Cabrera wrote (emphasis added):

Indeed, this summer, two members of the U.S. Supreme Court are scheduled to teach overseas classes in partnership with our faculty. Justice Neil Gorsuch and Professor Jamil Jaffer will team up for the second time to teach a class in Padua, Italy about the historical roots and the modern application of the separation of powers in the national security context. And Justice Kavanaugh and Professor Jennifer Mascott will team teach a course on the origins and creation of the U.S. Constitution in Runnymede, England, the location of the sealing of the Magna Carta.

These two courses are part of the law school’s on-going efforts to provide opportunities for students to learn from some of the most influential legal experts in the nation. The faculty (in this case the law school’s) approves these types of appointments based on their assessment of the qualifications of the individuals and the value they can bring to students. Justice Kavanaugh’s appointment was approved by the law school faculty in January. The class was announced to law school students soon thereafter and an information session was held in early February (for additional information, I’m pasting the announcement to students below). At this time, the class, which is elective, is oversubscribed.

The ultimate irony it is that this “dark money” group is only allowed to exist because of Justice Kavanaugh's, and others like him, willingness to read the First Amendment as written and support free speech, although Demand Justice operates in a way that is frequently decried by Democrats and liberals.   As Michael Graham wrote months ago:

The irony is that progressive groups are using Kavanaugh’s jurisprudence — because money can be used to pay for political speech (TV ads, websites, etc.) it should be given First Amendment protections similar to speech — to raise these off-the-record millions to attack him.

Not only that, but Demand Justice in particular has a complicated pedigree. Demand Justice is essentially a front for another “dark money” organization — a tax-exempt social welfare organization called the Sixteen Thirty Fund that is acting as Demand Justice’s fiscal sponsor. . . .

So liberal millionaires and far-left activists give money to the Sixteen Thirty Fund, which in turn uses that money to fund Demand Justice, which uses that money to buy TV ads to influence swing votes in the U.S. Senate in an attempt to stop a democratically elected president from filling a vacancy on the Supreme Court — all with money from undisclosed sources.

It is important to note that Demand Justice began attacking the nomination before Kavanaugh was even named or the hearings began.  They are opposed to Justice Kavanaugh because of who nominated him.  Demand Justice is run by the former press secretary to the candidate who has ultimately not accepted she lost, Hillary Clinton.  As former Senate Judiciary Committee Nominations Chief Counsel Mike Davis tweeted:
