Democrats Should Apologize to Brett Kavanaugh and His Family for Pushing False Accusations About Him

Saturday night, the Senate Judiciary Committee released a 400-plus page report on the various investigations involving claims of sexual misconduct against then-Judge Brett Kavanaugh.  Those investigations produced no evidence to back up the charges against him.

Senator Charles Grassley, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, said: “This was a serious and thorough investigation that left no stone unturned in our pursuit of the facts.  In the end, there was no credible evidence to support the allegations against the nominee.”

The release of this report came on the heels of news Friday night that Chairman Grassley had referred another accuser, Judy Munro-Leighton, to the Justice Department for a criminal investigation after she admitted to fabricating claims against Kavanaugh.

Munro-Leighton admitted that her charge was just a “ploy” designed “to grab attention” and derail Kavanaugh’s confirmation.  Grassley has also referred Julie Swetnick and Michael Avenatti for a criminal investigation.

I am pleased that Chairman Grassley is serious about holding people responsible for lying to Congress and smearing a good man and his family.

It is telling that whenever one of these women came forward, reporters rushed to be the first one to break the news of the latest charge.  They attempted to use the cumulative weight of all the charges to cover up the weaknesses in Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations.

It also shows why Kavanaugh was correct to forcefully deny the charges, and point out the absurdity of the accusations coming from seemingly everywhere — from Maryland to Rhode Island to Colorado.

I have been watching the news closely over the weekend.  I have yet to see one left-wing senator apologize to Justice Kavanaugh, his wife and his young daughters.  Not one progressive politician has had the character and courage to admit that they were wrong about these smears against an innocent man.
