Lindsey Graham Wrecks Democrats Calling For Kavanaugh’s Impeachment

Published

on

Over the weekend, the New York Times relitigated the Kavanaugh sexual misconduct allegations by publishing a book excerpt from “The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation.” A portion of the book excerpt, which focuses on the experience of Kavanaugh’s Yale classmate Deborah Ramirez, can be read below:

NYT: At Yale, she encountered students from more worldly backgrounds. Many were affluent and had attended elite private high schools. They also had experience with drinking and sexual behavior that Ms. Ramirez — who had not intended to be intimate with a man until her wedding night — lacked.

During the winter of her freshman year, a drunken dormitory party unsettled her deeply. She and some classmates had been drinking heavily when, she says, a freshman named Brett Kavanaugh pulled down his pants and thrust his penis at her, prompting her to swat it away and inadvertently touch it. Some of the onlookers, who had been passing around a fake penis earlier in the evening, laughed.

But shortly after the NYT published the excerpt as an article, Mollie Hemingway, a writer at the Federalist, announced she had received a copy of the upcoming book and discovered that the New York Times excerpt omitted from article the fact that Ramirez didn’t actually recall the incident happening. The Times later issued a correction at the bottom of the article, clarifying that Ramirez “declined to be interviewed and friends say that she does not recall the incident.”

According to Hemingway, the basis for the recently-published allegations came from attorney Max Stier, another one of Kavanaugh’s Yale classmates. As Hemingway writes:

FEDERALIST: Stier worked closely with David Kendall, who went on to defend Hillary Clinton against allegations of illegally handling classified information. Kavanaugh’s reference to his opponents being motivated by “revenge on behalf of the Clintons” met with befuddlement by liberal media, despite the surprisingly large number of Clinton-affiliated attorneys who kept popping up during his confirmation hearings.

FEDERALIST: In any case, Stier’s claim, which even two Democratic senators’ offices didn’t find particularly worthwhile, was that he had seen an inebriated Kavanaugh, pants-down, at a freshman-year party. Stier’s claim to the staffers, we’re told, was that other people at the party put Kavanaugh’s genitalia into the hands of a classmate. Another unnamed person alleged said that he or she might have remembered hearing that the female student had transferred out of her college because of Kavanaugh, “though exactly why was unclear.”

Even as the fresh “accusations” have been discredited, Democratic presidential candidates have begun calling for Kavanaugh’s impeachment, including Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

“Last year the Kavanaugh nomination was rammed through the Senate without a thorough examination of the allegations against him,” wrote Warren on Twitter. “Confirmation is not exoneration, and these newest revelations are disturbing. Like the man who appointed him, Kavanaugh should be impeached.”

But Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who is chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, was having none of it. Monday afternoon, Graham announced on Twitter “Kavanaugh will not be impeached over these scurrilous accusations.”

Graham continued, opining that the only new information we’ve learned in the last few days is that, at the NYT, “Republicans are presumed to be ‘guilty'” and that the news agency “writes first” and “verifies later.” Graham also scolded the Democratic presidential candidates for being “willing to ruin Justice Kavanaugh’s life for political gain,” and called the latest attacks “beyond the pale.”

During the embattled confirmation last year, Graham famously questioned the integrity of the confirmation process and the willingness of the Democratic senators to ruin Kavanaugh’s life.

“What you want to do is destroy this guy’s life, hold this seat open, and hope you win in 2020,” Graham shouted to Democratic senators in the chamber, reported CNN. “To my Republican colleagues, if you vote ‘no’, you’re legitimizing the most despicable thing that I have seen in my time in politics.”

As CNN Editor-at-Large Chris Cizzilla noted:

CNN: The reaction to Graham speaks to the bitter divisions within the country. For Republicans, his words were the highlight of the hearing. For Democrats, the low light.

What is beyond debate is that prior to Graham’s speech, Kavanaugh’s chances were fading. After it, they look to be at least 50-50, particularly with Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Arizona, announcing that he is voting for Kavanaugh’s nomination in the Judiciary Committee later Friday afternoon.

All of which means that if Kavanaugh winds up on the Supreme Court, he’s got Lindsey Graham to thank for it — maybe more than anyone else.

A version of this story appears on the Daily Wire website.

    The DUMBOCRATS stand together on several impeachments WHEN IN REALITY, THE “DEMOCRATIC PARTY” and all it’s member should be IMPEACHED for all the improprieties they have within their ILLEGAL PARTY…….

  • 2WarAbnVet says:

    You have to give credit to these leftists, when they set out to destroy somebody, they’ll never allow facts or innocence to stand in their way.
    Just now, the NYT publishes a malicious fake hit piece on Kavanaugh, and the headline on my morning paper tells my that three Dem candidates scream for impeachment without a shred of evidence.

  • Jim C says:

    Thank you DEMOCRATS, for electing TRUMP in 2020.

  • Greg Mikulka says:

    These democrat politicians are so crooked, if they all stood in a line, it would look like a brain wave graph during a Freddy Kruger nightmare…
    If they had a shred of integrity, they would be ashamed of themselves…
    The irony is that their daddy, Satan, has already been defeated & is sentenced to death & the democrats, who are following in his footsteps, will suffer the same fate…stupid is as stupid does…it’s like watching the Three Stooges doing the Devil’s work & Satan is embarrassed that these incompetent morons are the best he could recruit…😂

  • Tommy Ryan says:

    Although I’m not a big fan of Graham, I believe that his stand up for Kavanaugh was noble…but I wonder his inner machinations behind it.
    He WAS once a Bush era globalist behind much of GW’s nonsense (never liked that bastard almost as much as Billyboy & Obozo)…which basically paved the way for Obozo himself to spin the country backwards in 2 terms as “president…nearly 50 years into past political bullshit…he & other George “Soreass” Soros cronies.

    Donald Trump, HOWEVER…has been doing everything he set out to do to try to fix the damaged dam full of cracks created by progressive socialist agenda-based globalists.
    The guy is like the little Dutch boy down at the dyke. He’s really trying to make America great again…
    Curbing illegal immigration, evening out uneven & unfair against the USA “international trade agreements”, unraveling the entrenched politics, REMOVING (NOT colluding with) DAMAGING foreign policy AGAINST America…& freeing up the TRILLIONS of overspent tax dollars wrenched from hard working Americans that the prog-soci liberals were “liberally” handing out to the falsely entitled, tongue wagging libtards.

    The prog-soci left are terrified of being prosecuted by the MAGA elected officials…& Kavanaugh banging the gavel for harsh punishment for the prog-soci sellouts in American gov’t seats.

    “Jeremy/Hillary/Boob” is terrified about it. People who could testify against the biggest so-called “foundation” & CRUMBLE IT are “hanging out”, “mysteriously” dying & “committing suicide” in a sudden panic.
    There’s WHY the smokescreen Kavanaugh case exists. To keep the American people in the dark and push the eventual destruction of The US Constitution.

    HONESTLY, libtards…think about it:
    Making America Great Again…what’s so bad about that?

  • jim says:

    Democrats are scum of the earth. Nobody should ever vote for these low life’s!!!!!!!!

  • Reggie says:

    A woman who doesn’t remember it.
    Hillary in the background.
    Nothing to see here, another smear attempt.

  • Reggie says:

    The Dems never heard of innocent until proven guilty. Until it comes to them.

  • Stephen says:

    Unbelievable, no call for impeachment of the Baltimore Senator who rips others apart. While rats rip his riding apart. How about those California senators, they should be in quarantine for fear they may spread centuries old diseases carried by rats 🐀 of Democratic breeding. That stuff will kill AOC faster than climate change or a garburator.

  • Doris_Speaks says:

    Thank God for Lindsay Graham!

  • Matt says:

    Does anyone know exactly WTF Democ*nts do all day other than scream out for the “impeachment” of anyone they hate, because I’m sure as sh*t f*cked if I know?!??!

  • SusieQue says:

    We really just have pop the popcorn, sit back and enjoy the shit show and watch the Useless Democrats implode while accomplishing absolutely nothing for America/Americans…”NOTHING”….. Every single minute of every single day they get thousands more votes for Trump….next….

  • Radone says:

    Just like Warren and Harris to jump the gun before any proof and call for the impeachment of Justice Kavenaugh . If this is how they react to news then what happens when one of our enemies is accused of something we don’t like or goes against what we believe do they jump in and declare war? I would not want these people in control of our government because they are too quick to judge without corroborating evidence. We all know this is a ploy to get Kavenaugh out because there is a case coming up they don’t want him involved in, remember the socialistic communistic liberal Dems sent a threatening letter to the SCOTUS a few weeks back threatening them regarding their results of the said case and they know RBG is ill with pancreatic cancer which is almost always fatal so they don’t want Trump to replace her and have a more Conservative Justices on the court then liberal judges. They don’t care if they destroy a good man and his family because they do not care about people at all, they only care about obtaining power so they can take over and rule the US citizens and keep us all as their minions and control every aspect of our lives. Wake up America this is just the beginning unless we stop them now. Vote all of these socialistic communistic liberals out office in 2020. If you don’t when you see how they destroy our country and take over our lives it will then be too late to do so. We have a choice now, we will not have a choice after they are kept in office. Vote republican or vote out these socialistic communistic liberal Dems.

  • Debi Lovell says:

    they are being exposed all the way around….don’t vote for them period

  • gregg says:

    This has accusation has just gone to the bottom of the barrel just to impeach Justice Brett Kavanaugh. The NYT & the rest of the CABALS will stoop so low & by all means to do anything to suit their agenda, which is to have that seat in the Supreme Court vacant until the 2020election. Their target is to fill that position with a hard leftist to control the Supreme Court that will suit their agenda.

  • Michael says:

    Thank Heavens; Thank You Lord that the LANDSLIDE Victory is coming in 2,020 and the House will revert back to the Republicans; amen.
