First, we started with the notion that a Supreme Court nominee should be rejected based on an anonymous, uncorroborated allegation about events decades ago.
Then, we progress to the argument that a private citizen can demand that the Senate hold a hearing and set its terms and procedures.
Next, we hear about those terms, and they are in flagrant disregard of 800 years of the rule of law: The accuser gets to go second, so the accused can’t answer the actual charges against him. The accuser gets to pick her questioners. And the accuser gets to call witnesses, whom nobody gets to find out about beforehand.
This has never been about finding the truth. This has always been about smearing a dedicated and upstanding public servant for the basest of political motives, without giving him a chance to defend himself.
It’s time to stop the circus. #ConfirmKavanaugh
