If Dr. Ford's testimony causes Judge Kavanaugh to lose the appointment, it will be official that we, as citizens, are no longer presumed innocent until proven guilty. If Judge Kavanaugh does receive the appointment to the SCOTUS, Dr. Ford has set us back 60 years in regard to reporting sex crimes. Not to mention how much trafficking will likely be ignored, now . . . The fact that our government now amounts to little more than a political circus is sad. This entire mess was orchestrated to cause emotions to soar, at this late hour. American politics is now adrenaline driven.
We may also be looking at the end of the statute of limitation . . . especially for unprovable allegations that are not prosecuted. Even if the allegations are true, it's been far too many years to prosecute, yet a person's reputation, career, and ultimately their life can be ruined. The court of public opinion can be merciless. I understand the concept of repressed memories, but she claims to have spoken of the matter back in 2012.
As for the FBI investigation. Everyone knows this is a red herring, at best. This is the same agency that didn't bother to investigate a high school dropout making threats, who actually followed through on those threats at Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida. This is nothing more than a stall tactic or flare for a bit more drama. Now that I've read the responses to the report, it's clear that the division still stands. For those who oppose Judge Kavanaugh, the investigation was not thorough enough and it's satisfactory for those who were already set to confirm him. There are three Senators (undecided) who are enjoying their 15 minutes of absolute power . . .
Isn't it interesting that Judge Kavanaugh's integrity is in question based upon a single accusation from several years ago. There have been no complaints throughout his career. This is not a criminal matter, but he stands to lose every thing, if there is a problem. Let's also consider the integrity of the people judging his integrity. I believe these senate hearings are the very definition of paradox.
America, we're slipping and slipping badly. The workings of our government should not be comparable to a season finale of Dallas or a Jerry Springer show.
