Democrats still think they can take down Brett Kavanaugh.
They have one card left to play.
And you won’t believe what they’ve been holding up their sleeve.
Democrats New Plan To Destroy Kavanaugh
Democrats will not stop trying to take down Kavanaugh, even if Republicans confirm him.
They claim the politically motivated accusations against him taint his selection.
Rhode Island Democrat Senator Sheldon Whitehouse promised that the Democrats will investigate Kavanaugh if they win control of Congress in November.
“I am confident of that, and I think we’ll also be investigating why the FBI stood down its background investigation when this came up in this particular background,” he said.
Democrats harped on the fact that the FBI never investigated Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations.
But the FBI said the case was closed.
It was also a local crime.
The FBI does not investigate those.
However, Democrats don’t care.
They see Kavanaugh as the fifth vote to overturn Roe v. Wade
And they want to take him out by any means necessary.
Democrats Want To Impeach Kavanaugh
Democrats running for President in 2020 will race to be the first one to call for impeaching Kavanaugh.
Former Hillary Clinton spokesmen Brian Fallon kicked off the push immediately after the hearing.
If Senate GOP ignores Dr. Blasey Ford and tries to muscle an attempted rapist onto the Supreme Court:
They will pay dearly this November.
Senators up in 2020 (Collins, Gardner et al) will feel intense heat for next two years.
Kavanaugh will not serve for life.
Alex Parker of Law360, a news site that covers legal issues, tweeted:
For starters, I firmly believe impeachment of Kavanaugh will become a perennial issue in Democratic primaries for years, if not decades.
This is political. It is hugely personal. And it will be, to many people, hugely illegitimate. Think *hard* about what this means.
And Axios reported that a senior Democrat strategist told them that “the only question is who calls for it first.”
Democrats And The 2020 Race
Democrats like Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand and Elizabeth Warren will surely run on impeaching Kavanaugh.
The likelihood is that every Democrat in the field will adopt this call.
Democrat voters will only yell louder if the party wins back both Houses of Congress in November.
If that happens, Democrats know the Presidency is the final piece of the puzzle.
The 2020 election could swing on the issue of impeaching Kavanaugh.
One reason Democrats launched these attacks on Kavanaugh was to delegitimize every key ruling he makes.
The left will claim his decisions are tainted by this process.
In addition, they will point to his testimony where he correctly claimed the attacks against him were coordinated smears by the Democrats.
Democrats will use his testimony as grounds to impeach him.
But will they succeed?
This is another fantasy the Democrats will use to win votes for the 2020 election.
But Democrats will never line up Republican votes to remove Kavanaugh from office.
