Do Dems have a double standard when it comes to Kavanaugh?

Democratic strategist Jason Nichols and Matthew Swift, Chairman of the Concord 51 PAC, in the debate.

President Trump on Tuesday accused Democrats of playing a “con game” with their calls for delays, and investigations of sexual misconduct, said the claims against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh — and doubt one of the plaintiffs, “nothing.”

“It’s terrible, what did the Democrats, it is a con game you play, you are really a cheater,” Trump told reporters at the United Nations, where an increasingly aggressive stance in response to the ever-changing controversy.

“You are good in one thing, it is obstruction and resistance and con,” he said.

Kavanaugh was accused in public by two women, the behavior of sexual misconduct in high school and college. Democrats have seized on both allegations as the reason for the delay of the confirmation vote for more hearings and a full FBI investigation.

Republican Christine Blasey Ford, the witness Kavanaugh, said she was groped at a party in high school, 36 years ago, on Thursday invited. Ford has adopted, but later concerns over the format of the hearing. Kavanaugh, who has repeatedly rejected the claims, plans to testify Thursday as well.

In the meantime, the New Yorker magazine reported late Sunday that a Yale fellow students Kavanaugh claimed, he continued to look at her at a college party. Kavanaugh strongly denied the claim as “smear”.” The account was quickly called into question, especially since the magazine had not confirmed the account of witnesses and the acccuser-Deborah Ramirez — admitted that they do not remember fully the incident, as she was drunk.

The magazine also reported that Ramirez spent six days “to evaluate carefully their memories, and consultation with your lawyer,” before the full version of your story.

Trump on Tuesday expressed skepticism about Ramirez’s account.

“The second Prosecutor has nothing. The second Prosecutor, not knows, not thinks, maybe, it could have been him, maybe, she admits that she was drunk, she admits to it time-lapse,” he said.

The remark took on a different tone from the White house earlier in the day, as the press-Secretary Sarah Sanders, had told ABC News that the White house “would be open” in order for Ramirez to testify.

Trump reserved most of his outrage at the Democrats, whom he accused of playing a “very dangerous game” and hurt Kavanaugh’s family.

“His wife is devastated, his children are destroyed on the ground. I mean, you’re like, ‘Oh, gee, I’m a little unhappy, “you are destroyed on the ground,” he said. “It’s just a game for [Democrats], but it is a very dangerous game for our country.”

To defend Kavanaugh on Monday went on Fox News, accompanied by his wife, Ashley, his name.

“What I know is the truth, and the truth, I have never done anything sexually to someone,” Kavanaugh Fox News’ Martha MacCallum, in an exclusive interview said.

Kavanaugh also MacCallum said he would not withdraw his name from consideration over the allegations.

“I want a fair process where I can say, my integrity, and I know I’m telling the truth,” said the judge. “I don’t know that my life-long data set, and I’m going to, the false accusations to bring me out of this process. I have faith in God and I have confidence in the fairness of the American people.”

Republicans face derailed a narrow path to confirmation for Kavanaugh, what could be, by a few defections from their own party.
