(James Barrett – Daily Wire) On the floor of the Senate Thursday, Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah made his closing arguments for the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, providing evidence against the uncorroborated allegations and condemning the Democrats’ manipulative and partisan handling of the allegations.
The senator began by stressing Kavanaugh’s unquestionable qualifications for the position, noting that he is “among the most distinguished and most influential judges in the entire country” (full transcript, video below). His decisions have influenced the Supreme Court “no less than eleven times,” said Hatch, and he has taught courses “at Harvard, Yale, and Georgetown.”
But his impeccable record has not been the focus of the last few weeks, Hatch underscores; rather, uncorroborated and often absurd on their face accusations given credence by the Democrats. The result as been “the lowest, most vile, most dishonest attempt at character assassination” he’s ever seen.
“We’ve had protestors in halls and hearing rooms and elevators. We’ve even seen the miraculous return of Spartacus,” he said. “And, Mr. President, we’ve had the lowest, most vile, most dishonest attempt at character assassination that I’ve ever seen in all my 42 years in the Senate. We may never know who leaked reports of Dr. Ford’s allegations to the press. We do know it was someone in the Democratic orbit. This was followed by the most appalling smear campaign imaginable. No accusation was too heinous, no claim too far-fetched.”
