Republican Senator Susan Collins said she will discuss the decades-old sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh with her colleagues after his Democratic accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, suddenly came forward in the 11th hour.
“I’m going to be talking with my colleagues, but I really don’t have anything to add at this point,” Senator Collins told reporters Sunday. “I did read the [accuser’s] letter last week and asked the judge in a telephone conversation on Friday about it. And he was very emphatic in his denial.”
The Senate’s confirmation vote on Judge Kavanaugh scheduled to take place September 20, but has now been postponed until next week.
The Maine senator noted that the 11th-hour timing of this decades-old allegation is odd, because Democrats remained silent about the accuser’s letter since July (when they first received it) and never questioned Kavanaugh about it during his four-day Senate confirmation hearing.
“What is puzzling to me is the Democrats — by not bringing this out earlier after having had this information for more than six weeks — have managed to cast a cloud of doubt on both the professor and the judge,” Senator Collins said.
Collins is being careful with how she responds to the Kavanaugh spectacle after she and her female staffers were barraged with rape and death threats and abusive, threatening letters, emails, phone calls, and visitors, as BizPac Review has reported.
Liberal protesters also mailed 3,000 coat hangers and a three-foot penis-shaped cutout to Collins’ office, threatening her if she votes to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Keep in mind that many of the same Democrats who are opposing Kavanaugh’s nomination now voted to confirm him back in 2006, when he was appointed a federal appeals court judge.

Arizona Senator Jeff Flake said he wants to delay the vote until the Senate Judiciary Committee hears more from the accuser.
The aptly-named Flake is a Trump-hating Republican ally of the late John McCain who’s considering running for president in 2020.
NEWS: Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) tells me in an intv he that doesn’t think the Judiciary Cmte should move ahead with its Thursday vote on Kavanaugh until they hear more from Christine Blasey Ford. “For me, we can’t vote until we hear more.”

Senator Lindsay Graham, a Republican from South Carolina, tweeted that he’d be happy to listen to the accuser’s testimony as long as it’s done before the confirmation vote.

The dubious timing of the groping allegations have fueled rumors that this is a cynical, underhanded ploy to derail Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
Christine Blasey Ford, 51, claimed the groping incident occurred in 1982 when she was 15 years old and Kavanaugh was 17. Yet she never discussed the “traumatic incident” until more than 30 years later, when she was in marriage therapy with her husband.
Ford is a registered Democrat who has donated to liberal political groups and recently signed a letter slamming President Trump’s “family separation policy” at the border even though that is the same policy she had no problem with when Barack Obama enforced it during his eight-year presidency.
Democrats guide to fighting conservative wins:
1) Protest and scream
2) Accuse the candidate of racism
2) Claim that if elected, this candidate will somehow dial back human rights
3) Accuse the candidate of sexual assault. <—— (we are here).

Accusations of sexual assault should be taken seriously, but keep in mind that the accused is innocent until proven guilty. We have learned how an innocent person’s life can be destroyed if the media jump to conclusions without weighing all the evidence first.
Exhibit A: Tawana Brawley gained notoriety in 1987 for falsely accusing four white men of gang-raping her. She was found in a trash bag with racial slurs scrawled on her body.
Her accusations angered many in the black community and ignited a race war led by race-baiting clown Reverend Al Sharpton, as BizPac Review has reported.
A grand jury later concluded there was no evidence to support Brawley’s accusations. The falsely-accused white men later successfully sued Brawley and her lawyers for defamation.
Exhibit B: In 2006, a stripper falsely accused three members of the Duke University men’s lacrosse team of rape. The case sparked a heated public discussion about racism and “white privilege.”
The rape hoax was also classified as a “hate crime” because stripper Crystal Gail Mangum claimed the Duke lacrosse players raped her because she was black.
The state Attorney General’s office eventually dismissed the case after extensive DNA tests revealed there no connection between Mangum and any of the Duke lacrosse players she had falsely accused.
In 2013, Crystal Mangum was convicted of murdering her boyfriend in a separate case. She’s now serving 14 to 18 years in jail.

Because Democrats and the liberal media have been protesting in bad faith every day for the past two years, how can anyone take their claims seriously?
