(National Sentinel) Presidential Backing: Former President George W. Bush has doubled down on his support for POTUS Donald Trump’s second Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, who is facing what appear to be bogus charges of sexual assault while in high school.
The former president made a statement in July in support of the nomination.
“President Trump has made an outstanding decision in nominating Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court,” the statement read, Conservative Tribune reported.
The former POTUS nominated Kavanaugh for a seat on the D.C. Circuit of the United States Court of Appeals in 2003 after joining the Bush White House following the 2000 election. He was finally confirmed in 2006.
“Brett is a brilliant jurist who has faithfully applied the Constitution and laws throughout his 12 years on the D.C. Circuit,” the statement continued. “He is a fine husband, father, and friend – and a man of the highest integrity. He will make a superb Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.”
But #43 isn’t the only one to heap high praise on Kavanaugh. The American Bar Association has given him the highest possible rating.
Despite this high praise and professional vouching, Kavanaugh’s nomination has devolved into a sick circus of accusation of sexual assault by Christine Blasey Ford, a Palo Alto University professor who claims Kavanaugh tried to rape her 36 years ago at some party event somewhere in Maryland at some location she can’t recall.
For his part, Kavanaugh has strenuously denied the allegations and said he didn’t even know who Ford was until the Democrats jerked her into the public eye after she allegedly wrote an “anonymous” letter to Sen. Dianne Feinstein over summer containing the charges.
“Laura and I have known and respected Brett Kavanaugh for decades, and we stand by our comments the night Judge Kavanaugh was nominated: He is a fine husband, father, and friend – and a man of the highest integrity,” Bush said in a statement, according to Politico. “He will make a superb Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.”
Yes, he will — that is, if Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee and in the Senate as a whole grow a spine, see this clown show of allegations for what they are, do the right thing for the country and confirm him.
