The escalating drama and controversy surrounding the Supreme Court confirmation proceedings for Judge Brett Kavanaugh have reached a disturbingly feverish pitch. At stake is a seat on the nation’s highest court, of course, and a man’s honor and public reputation is also now on trial.
Sexual assault charges are serious, even allegations from several decades ago. The timing of the accusations, the partisan individuals representing the accusers and the irresponsibility with which they’ve been handled by key members of the United States Senate, all establish a dangerous precedent. The constellation of these factors calls into question the motivation of those behind these allegations. Isn’t it odd that these charges would manifest in this manner, and be shepherded by individuals who have publicly opposed Judge Kavanaugh, and particularly, who are offended by his judicial philosophy as a strict constitutional constructionist?
I am eager for Judge Brett Kavanaugh, a jurist with a sterling reputation for his character and integrity, a dedicated family man, an honorable husband and father, to be given an opportunity to publicly address any and all charges and clear his name.
In the end, as in the beginning, let’s pray that through this process and in the coming days that truth is revealed.
