As Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) said the House is too busy “impeaching the president” to consider investigating sexual misconduct allegations against the Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) has advice for Democratic presidential contenders.
“A word of advice to the Democratic presidential candidates calling for Kavanaugh’s impeachment: Even Jerry Nadler figured out that impeachment of Brett Kavanaugh, based on this ridiculous accusation, is a Bridge Too Far,” the senator wrote in a tweet.
“If Nadler isn’t willing to go there……..NO ONE should go there!” he added.

Although The New York Times repeatedly apologized for the bombshell story about Kavanaugh that sparked criticism on social media of the newspaper’s credibility, Democratic presidential candidates still held on to the idea that the Supreme Court justice “must be impeached.”
Graham called the accusations “scurrilous” and promised Justice Kavanaugh will not be impeached while he is Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
The New York Times editors also omitted another important detail that Max Stier, the accuser who “saw Mr. Kavanaugh with his pants down at a different drunken dorm party, where friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student,” was Clinton defense attorney, or Stier’s history of legal battles with Kavanaugh.
The only supposedly new claim made in the book isn’t new and comes from Democrat attorney Max Stier, a Yale classmate of Kavanaugh’s with whom he has a long and contentious history. In the words of the Yale Daily News, they were “pitted” against each other during the Whitewater investigation in the 1990s when Kavanaugh worked for Independent Counsel Ken Starr. Stier defended President Bill Clinton, whose legal troubles began when a woman accused him of exposing himself to her in hotel room she had been brought to. Clinton later settled with the woman for $850,000 and, due to a contempt of court citation for misleading testimony, ended up losing his law license for five years. 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.

Fox News’s Marc Thiessen reacted to comments on social media in which people claimed “The Kavanaugh railroad is the most politically clarifying event” and decided to vote for President Trump next year, saying, “The left’s ongoing smear of Brett Kavanaugh is completely self-destructive.”
This says it all. The left’s ongoing smear of Brett Kavanaugh is completely self-destructive. https://t.co/jfNwTcgDn6
