Kirsters Baish| The Democrats love to claim that they are all about being civil and that they embrace bipartisanship, but their behavior this past week during the Kavanaugh hearing proves otherwise. The Democrats showed their true colors through multiple offensive and clearly coordinated attacks toward President Trump’s Supreme Court pick. The hearing was constantly interrupted and delayed by bitter Democrats. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the whole thing was a coordinated attack.
The Daily Mail reports that Democrats worked together in a coordinated protest this past Labor Day Weekend, agreeing to work together to delay and disrupt Kavanaugh’s hearing, as reported by NBC News.
Democratic Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois explained, “There was a phone conference yesterday.” He also explained that “many issues were raised.”
The Democrats were pulling things out of thin air to object about. They attacked Brett Kavanaugh as well as civil Chairman Senator Chuck Grassley. Grassley was less than thrilled about the Democrats’ behavior.
NBC Politics reported, “Democratic senators opened Kavanaugh confirmation hearing with a protest plan that was coordinated and agreed to over the weekend, people familiar with the planning tell @NBCPolitics.”
CBS also confirmed NBC’s report that the whole thing was planned:
CBS News’ Nancy Cordes reports that a source familiar with the discussions confirms that Sen. Schumer held a conference call with Judiciary Committee democrats over the Labor Day weekend to discuss the strategy they are now deploying in a coordinated manner, interrupting the start of the hearing to call – one after the other – for a delay in the proceedings until senators get all the Kavanaugh documents they want and have time to read them.
The hearing eventually settled into opening statements, though protests continued.
Durbin later praised the protesters: “What we’ve heard is the noise of democracy.”
Things went pretty much according to plan for the Dems. Democratic Senate Judiciary Committee members spoke out of order over and over again. Some of them even attacked Chuck Grassley on a personal level, demanding that the hearing be adjourned at once.
There were no real questions raised. All they were doing was trying to protest Kavanaugh simply because he was picked by President Trump.
Kavanaugh received a “well-qualified evaluation” from the ABA. All the left can do is try and delay and stir up controversy that doesn’t exist, praying that it changes things.
Democratic Senators Cory Booker and Kamala Harris used their platforms to promote themselves for a possible run in the 2020 presidential election.
Take a look at the video below which came from the Free Beacon. It shows 76 interruptions from the Democrats before Grassley could take control:
