Kavanaugh’s indictment calls for mark’s latest strike on the ‘judicial independence’ Republicans say

nearvideo Carrie Severino: attack Kavanaugh is an attack on the independence of judges

Co-author of “Justice on Trial” Carrie Severino, says try the liberals intimidate you, to bully and to threaten judges of the Supreme court to protect their own agenda.

The conservatives once more rallied to the Supreme Court, judge Brett Kavanaugh, as he faces a new round of controversial sexual misconduct allegations. But GOP lawmakers claim to speak the calls from Democratic presidential candidates for his impeachment to a bigger Problem.

As part of their defense Kavanaugh, they say, the renewed campaign against President Trump’s second Supreme Court pick is part of an escalating series of attacks on judicial independence-citing the recent warnings before the high court and calls for the “court-packing” in addition to the pressure on Kavanaugh.


“This is not a normal political behavior,” Senate majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., earlier this week, said in the Senate.

The calls for the Kavanaugh’s expulsion of a New York Times report on the sexual misconduct allegations followed. But the report was called into question, not to note after the newspaper revised its original story, remember the obvious victims in the new alleged incident.

“It is an attack on the independence of judges,” said Carrie Severino, chief counsel and policy Director for the conservative judicial crisis network, in response to the Kavanaugh controversy. “They try to intimidate you, to bully and to threaten the judge, because they hope that you will help to promote and protect this liberal agenda, you are trying through the courts, if you know that it was rejected by the American people.”


Kavanaugh ‘s harshest critics, though, say that the latest accusation is that he had his pants down on a Dorm party, “where friends pushed his penis in the hand of a student” – is one of several that merit deeper investigation. Sr., Kamala Harris, D-Calif., a candidate for the presidency, tweeted, “is the reality of The Kavanaugh confirmation process, that it lacked any integrity — there has never been a meaningful investigation of these allegations. We need the truth.”

While top Democratic leader, pushed to the back, calls on the prosecution, and not suggested, it is not part of their agenda now, the campaign against Kavanaugh over yet. Liberal activist organizations are Calling for justice, the center for Popular democracy and the women’s March planning protests on Oct. 6, the anniversary of the Kavanaugh confirmation.

“My Republican colleagues and I will tweeted fight to preserve a fair and independent judiciary,” McConnell.

McConnell is often vilified by Democrats for his own tactics in terms of justice-namely, its role in the prevention of President Barack Obama, the last candidate, Merrick Garland, of the is considered in the Senate. Garland’s nomination never received a hearing or a confirmation vote, so if the space left open by the death of Antonin Scalia still, after President Trump office Trump was able to take the name of Neil from gorsuch.

McConnell claimed that it was appropriate to act in a Garland of his nomination, because he believed that the difference should be the end of President does not select a Supreme court judge, in his last year in office. Democrats were said pissed off earlier this year at McConnell, if the same situation came up during the last year of the Trump of the term, he would be the candidacy confirm. McConnell’s communication director, said later that the difference is that now the White house and the Senate are not controlled by the same party, that was not the case with Obama.

McConnell, however, is not the only one blasting Democrats in the last actions. On Tuesday, Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., the Democrats and the media accused of “leveraging unsubstantiated criminal allegations against a duly confirmed by the Supreme court in an effort to undermine not only its work, but, ultimately, the entire court as an institution.”

Just last month, Democratic senators, led by Rhode Island’s Sheldon Whitehouse filed a brief, accused the Supreme court of being “good”, and essentially threatened that, if the judge does not “heal” yourself, you could be “restructured”, which was believed to be a reference to court-packing. Several democratic presidential candidates this concept have supported expanded the roster of the Supreme Court. The increase in the number of judges would allow the President to shift the balance to the Bank, you load it with the judge, his or her preference.


Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S. C., took the Democrats to task for the restructuring of a threat, to say that the extension of the Supreme Court, more liberal for a long time the Democrats’ “dream.” He promised, “everything in my power to ensure that dream is NEVER fulfilled.”

All 53 Senate Republicans signed a letter to the Supreme Court clerk warning to give to the judge to democratic pressure.

The Wall Street Journal editorial board wrote that Whitehouse is short and to the ongoing discussions on the impeachment Kavanaugh are part of an “attack on justice”, partly inspired by an agenda, including the Green New Deal, which ultimately rely on court judgments.

The members of the court remained largely silent on these questions, even though the liberal stalwart justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg spoke out against the expansion of the court of justice in July an interview with NPR.

“Nine is a good number seems to be,” she said.
