This weekend, the New York Times published unsubstantiated accusations of sexual assault about Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, later noting in an editor’s note that the alleged accuser does not recall the incident, and would not speak on record about it. Like catnip, Democratic presidential candidates immediately began rushing to call for Kavanaugh’s impeachment:
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell immediately reiterated his support for Justice Kavanaugh, saying: “The far left’s willingness to seize on completely uncorroborated and unsubstantiated allegations during last year’s confirmation process was a dark and embarrassing chapter for the Senate. Fortunately a majority of Senators and the American people rallied behind timeless principles such as due process and the presumption of innocence. I look forward to many years of service to come from Justice Kavanaugh.”
Yet conspicuously silent in all this is McConnell’s Democratic opponent, Amy McGrath, who infamously bungled her campaign rollout earlier this year by performing a cringeworthy flip-flop belly flop on whether she would have supported Kavanaugh’s nomination.
Now that she’s back to opposing Kavanaugh (before previously supporting him), does McGrath support her party’s rush to impeach him?
If not… does she know why?
