Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blasted the Democrats for creating a “choreographed smear campaign” against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
“Let me start with a quote: ‘I’m going to fight this nomination with everything I’ve got.’ That was the Democratic Leader on television mere hours after Judge Brett Kavanaugh was nominated to the Supreme Court,” McConnell began.
“Others pledged their opposition before he was even named,” McConnell continued. “Before they’d reviewed a lick of evidence. Before they’d heard a minute of testimony. The Democrats had already made up their minds and chosen their tactics: delay, obstruct, and resist. Whatever it took — whatever the truth really was — they were going to do whatever they could to stop this qualified, experienced, and mainstream nominee.”
“Senate Democrats and their allies are trying to destroy a man’s personal and professional life on the basis of decades-old allegations that are unsubstantiated and uncorroborated,” McConnell continued. “This is what the so-called ‘Resistance’ has become. A smear campaign, pure and simple. Aided and abetted by members of the United States Senate.”
