Vice President Mike Pence argues that the latest accusations against Judge Kavanaugh show the pessimism of the Democrats and the mass media, in his speech at the Heritage Foundation on Tuesday.
“Democrats and their allies in the media are obviously getting desperate. After dominating our courts for more than a generation,” Pence said after mentioning that President Donald Trump “has appointed 150 federal judges.”
All those appointed “are conservatives,” he said, “who are committed to upholding the God-given liberties enshrined in our Constitution, including the freedom of speech, the freedom of religion, and the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.”
Pence said “we’re making historic progress, strengthening the constitutional foundation of our courts,” and he also said President Trump intends to “continue” making such appointments in the future.
Overwhelmed by this situation, Democratic leaders, “this week, they’ve even taken to smearing a sitting justice on the Supreme Court of the United States with discredited allegations,” he warned.
Pence’s accusations came in the wake of a contradictory New York Times story about alleged sexual misconduct by Judge Kavanaugh at Yale University, where he was one of the top students.
Shortly thereafter, The New York Times issued an editor’s note about the piece, saying that the student “declined to be interviewed” and that her friends “don’t remember the incident.”
However, at least five Democratic presidential candidates argued that the information was true and demanded the removal of Kavanaugh, including Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren, according to a report by the Washington Examiner.
Previously, Judge Kavanaugh has been the subject of other strangely similar defamatory allegations, such as that of Christine Blasey Ford, who falsely accused him of attempted rape.
Her lawyer later admitted that the accusation against Judge Kavanaugh was politically motivated.
“When he [Kavanaugh] takes a scalpel to Roe v. Wade, we will know who he is, we know his character, and we know what motivates him, and that is important,” described Debra Katz, Christine Blasey Ford’s lawyer, revealing her true intentions: Protect the decriminalization of abortion.
It is worth mentioning that even Christine Blasey Ford’s father, Ralph Blasey, supported Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court.
“The calls by Democrat candidates for president to remove Justice Kavanaugh from the Court are a disgrace and nothing short of an attack on our independent judiciary,” said Vice President Pence.
Justice Brett Kavanaugh “is a good and decent man,” he continued, “he is a principled jurist and a credit to the highest court in the land,” he said.
“These attacks on Justice Kavanaugh must stop,” he concluded.
