Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh went through the ringer today as the Senate questioned him regarding sexual assault allegations from when he was a teenager. Left-wing university professor Christine Blasey Ford testified Kavanaugh attacked her when they were teenagers. The Senate hearing soon devolved into arguments and accusations between its party members.

Republican Senator Ted Cruz questioned the credibility of the chairman of the committee for holding onto Blasey's accusations for 60 days instead of presenting them to the committee to be investigated days before Kavanaugh is about to be voted to serve as a lifetime Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. The chairman denied leaking Blasey's letter or identity to the press and suggested that Blasey's statements to her friends are the source of the leak. Sen. Lindsey Graham went after Kavanaugh and blatantly asked him if he was a "gang rapist".

After Christine Blasey Ford testified, a handoff was caught on video perhaps between her attorney?

One entertaining moment was when Kavanagh flipped Senator Amy Klobuchar's question back on her she asked whether he ever drank so much he couldn't remember what happened the night before. Kavanaugh responded, "You are asking about a blackout. I don't know. Have you?" Klobuchar replies, "Could you answer the question, judge?"

<script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Another moment was when Senator Leahy asked Kavanaugh if he was a character in Mark Judge's book to which he replies, "You'd have to ask him." Leahy responds, "Well, I agree with you there, and that's why I wished that the Chairman had him here under oath."

Every Democratic senator was out for blood including Senator Kamala Harris who tried to make Kavanaugh look bad for not watching Ford's testimony air live just hours before he was set to testify. I'm sure if Harris was about to testify she wouldn't be worried about watching someone else's testimony while preparing for her own just minutes after.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Sen.

<script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Senator Hatch took a different approach and said that both Ford and Kavanaugh are human beings and deserve to be treated fairly. He also said of Kavanaugh, "This man is not a monster".

Here is a nice montage of moments from both testimonies that include statements from Christine Blasey Ford's hearing.

The final senator to question Kavanaugh was Senator Kennedy who asked, "None of these allegations are true?" Kavanaugh responded, "Correct." Kennedy point blank asked Kavanaugh to look him in the eyes and went over each of the allegations and explicitly asked if they were true. His response was the same to each.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Sen.

As Senator Lindsey Graham pointed out, this has been a political sham and Dianne Feinstein's withholding of Ford's accusations and alleged leaking amounts to nothing less than unethical. And to end it all here is a shot of Kavanaugh leaving the hearing.

Graham was right. Nothing but a political sham from the left.

According to the Mark Taylor there are still two more and maybe a third to be replaced on the Supreme Court yet. Do you think dems will be worried after the RED tsunami this next election?

Wall of text does no good.

Simply put words are meaningless, deeds & actions are a judge of ones character.

One has an impeccable account of his actual deeds in life.

The other, a much more dubious account of her own lifestyle.

Common people have common sense. That is what establishment politicians & hit men forget.

The Democrats are worried he would follow the US Constitution and not create things to fit their agenda.

Like their Obama and Clinton Picks have done.

What little I listen too clearly showed the Socialist-Far Left DINO's are playing to the Media and are on the ropes and trying every trick to delay, delay delay the senate vote.
