As we’ve seen over the past few weeks, Democrats have already tried, convicted and pronounced sentence on Judge Brett Kavanaugh over unsubstantiated allegations.
They did the same thing to Judge Roy Moore when he ran for the Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions.
On the other side of the aisle, Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison from Minnesota is facing allegations of domestic abuse from more than one former girlfriend.
If Democrats were consistent with the stand they’ve taken on Kavanaugh, then they should also be demanding that Ellison resign from the House and withdraw from his campaign as governor, but that’s not what is happening.
Ellison’s attorney says that allegations alone are not sufficient on which to judge someone, but isn’t that what Democrats did and are doing to Moore and Kavanaugh?
(Fox News) – Embattled U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison admitted calling ex-girlfriend Karen Monahan a “b—-” during a heated argument about finances – but a lawyer hired to write a report about domestic abuse allegations against the Minnesota Democrat says that hardly proves the congressman is guilty.
“An allegation standing alone is not necessarily sufficient to conclude that conduct occurred, particularly where the accusing party declines to produce supporting evidence that she herself asserts exists,” lawyer Susan Ellingstad says in the report. “She has thus repeatedly placed the existence of [a] video front and center to her allegations, but then has refused to disclose it.”
She adds: “Mr. Ellison recalled only one time in 2013 where he called Ms. Monahan a ‘b—-,’ following an argument over purchasing something that he thought was too expensive.”
Ellingstad is a partner in a law firm that donated more than $500,000 to Democrats since 1998, with nearly $50,000 to Ellison’s campaigns since 2004…
Don’t forget that many of the same Democrats that blasted Moore and Kavanaugh are not only the same ones supporting Ellison, but they also supported Bill Clinton when his adulterous affairs were proven.
At the time, Democrats said that Clinton’s private life has no bearing on his ability to run the country.
Gee, shouldn’t they hold to that with Kavanaugh?
They aren’t because that isn’t the issue with Kavanaugh, it’s his conservative and constitutionalist record that they are really opposing.
