The push to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh has been dogged by one scandal after another. It was supposed to be an easy confirmation process because he knew what to say and how to say it to the liberals. He told them abortion and gay rights were “settled law.” But he offered the left a target-rich environment that has tainted not only his reputation but his Catholic education and the conservative movement.
“I did not have sexual intercourse or anything close to sexual intercourse in high school or for many years thereafter,” Kavanaugh told Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum in an interview which aired on Monday night. It was a preview of his public testimony. It was strangely reminiscent of Bill Clinton’s “I did not have sexual relations with that woman…”
Now, in a bizarre twist, Kavanaugh has reportedly retained high-powered liberal attorney Beth Wilkinson to help him fight the sexual assault charges. She represented four Hillary Clinton staffers during the investigation of Mrs. Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was Secretary of State. “By tapping Wilkinson, the Clinton confidants have selected someone with deep ties to Washington politics and the DOJ [Department of Justice],” reported Politico. “The 53-year-old wife of former ‘Meet the Press’ host David Gregory is a Clinton donor and Democratic contributor, according to Federal Election Commission filings.” Her firm, Wilkinson Walsh Eskovitz, specializes in “winning high-stakes trials.”
