Dems: Even If Kavanaugh Is Confirmed, If We Get Back Power, We’ll Go After Him
The more Democrats go after Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the more I support him… Just shows he’s the right man for the job.
She hasn’t even made an official claim yet in writing, Feinstein has refused to turn over the original letter. The reason why is because an official letter to the Committee has legal consequences if she is lying. But even if he’s confirmed, they’re still going to try to take him out, one more reason people can’t let them back into power. –WZ

Congressional Democrats are threatening to investigate sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh from the highest bench in the land should he be confirmed without a probe and the party reclaim Congress.
Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) said that “as soon as Democrats get gavels,” the party will vet the FBI’s handling of Ford’s claim against the Supreme Court nominee — even if Kavanaugh is already seated on the high court by that time. Rep. Eric Swallwell (D-Calif.), who sits on the House Judiciary Committee, also said in an interview that the party could probe Kavanaugh’s denials of the allegations against him.
“If they ramrod this nomination through, and we win the majority, we can still investigate this on the House side, and certainly the question as to whether a Supreme Court justice committed perjury is something you could look at,” Swalwell said in an interview. “Hopefully it doesn’t come to that; hopefully they do this right.”
“Because,” he added, “it’s going to get investigated either way and it would be better not to have to investigate a sitting judge.”
Their comments point to a continued Democratic focus on Kavanaugh that could help turn out liberal voters in November, regardless of whether the GOP can confirm him.
“You can’t ignore a crime victim’s claim that something happened, refuse to investigate, throw her up into the stand without the least bit of support for her, without the least bit of effort to corroborate what she says and then walk away from that,” Whitehouse told CNN’s Jake Tapper. More
Retroactive “vetting?” Uh-huh. That won’t blow up in their faces, or anything, pic.twitter.com/GLUI3tS7gZ
