The orchestrated 11th hour ambush of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by Democratic senators, coming when his confirmation appeared to be all but assured, was arguably designed to sway liberal Republican Sens. Lisa Murkowski Susan Collins.
Unsubstantiated accusations of sexual abuse leveled against Kavanaugh, who the left sees as a major threat to Roe v. Wade, were sure to influence the two pro-choice Republican women and Murkowski is beginning to show signs that this character assassination of the nominee by Democrats is having the desired effect.
“We are now in a place where it’s not about whether or not Judge Kavanaugh is qualified,” Murkowski told The New York Times Monday night. “It is about whether or not a woman who has been a victim at some point in her life is to be believed.”
Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, scheduled a vote on Kavanaugh for Friday morning, the day after accuser Christine Blasey Ford may or may not appear before the panel.
Murkowski, a critical Republican swing vote, appeared to voice support for an FBI investigation of the claims made against Kavanaugh, as called for by Democrats in a desperate attempt to delay the confirmation process.
Never mind that four people Ford placed at the scene have come forward to say they have no idea what she’s talking about.
The Alaska senator was asked Tuesday if there should be a further FBI probe of the nominee’s past.
“Well, it would sure clear up all the questions, wouldn’t it?” Murkowski answered.
A second allegation against Kavanaugh surfaced over the weekend, reported by New Yorker, although the claim was not corroborated — in fact, her story didn’t even pass the smell test of the liberal New York Times.
According to alleged victim Deborah Ramirez, Kavanaugh thrust his exposed penis in her face during a party at Yale University.
Ramirez is reportedly refusing to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee about her accusation against Kavanaugh, the Washington Examiner reported late Tuesday.
Her attorney said Ramirez wants an FBI investigation, not a Senate investigation, and is willing to “swear to the FBI under penalty of perjury.”
Or, in other words, more delays.
According to Fox News, the FBI would need White House direction to launch a probe of an alleged incident that falls well outside any applicable statute of limitations for a federal crime.
An unidentified federal law enforcement official told Fox News an FBI investigation would be “inappropriate.”
“It’s totally inappropriate for someone to demand we use law enforcement resources to investigate a 35-year-old allegation when [the victim] won’t go under oath and can’t remember key details including when or where it happened,” the official said.
