On Thursday morning, CNN’s Jake Tapper delivered a statement about the allegations against SCOTUS pick Brett Kavanaugh that likely left his fellow Democrats in a state of complete shock.
He actually stated that there’s “no contemporaneous corroborating evidence for any of the charges against Kavanaugh.”
Can you imagine the brain melter that was for his co-workers at the undisputed king of fake news?
Tapper began by reminiscing about the confirmation of Justice Clarence Thomas in 1991. He stated:
We all remember where we were during Clarence Thomas. I mean I have vivid memories, I think I was 22 years old, of “high tech lynching of an uppity black man,” of Professor Hill’s charges, of Arlen Specter, the late senator from Pennsylvania, attacking Ted Kennedy, the late senator from Massachusetts, saying, “The women from America don’t need to hear Ted Kennedy when it comes to women.”Trending:
Tapper continued, “This really is a historic moment. This is gonna be something that we all remember years, if not decades, from now – where we were and the coverage of it.”
Blitzer interjected, “And these accusations by these women against Judge Kavanaugh are so brutal.”Advertisement - story continues below
Tapper acknowledged that, but also pointed out Kavanaugh’s staunch denial of the accusations: “They’re brutal accusations and his denial is so unequivocal that there’s nothing that happened, that he can even understand why these charges would be brought forward.”
The charges are upsetting and they’re obviously, they’ve triggered an entire national conversation about sexual assault and sexual harassment, about the unequal way women and girls are treated in this country, at the same time, there is, as of now, no contemporaneous corroborating evidence for any of the charges as far as we know. We haven’t seen anybody emerge and say, “Yes, I remember that” and that is an important part of this story as well.
It’s always a hard pill to swallow when CNN actually provides an objective point of view and approaches a topic logically, but you have to give credit where credit is due, and that’s clearly the case with Tapper.
While much of Tapper’s personal politics leaves much to be desired, he’s often the lone voice of reason and objectivity at the network he calls home.
At the end of the day, the evidence against Kavanaugh is all hearsay, empty words and allegations that have no actual physical evidence to back them up. It seems more and more likely that the whole thing is just a ploy to get the confirmation hearing delayed.
How awful that Democrats are willing to destroy a person’s life simply to win a political battle. They truly have no souls.
