'It Really Is Evil': Liz Cheney Blasts Dems' Handling of Kavanaugh Confirmation
Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney said the Democrats' handling of Judge Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation, writ large, has been "evil."
Cheney, daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, highlighted the behavior of Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), who was the first to receive Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's allegations against Kavanaugh.
She called Feinstein's decision to hold onto the allegations after first receiving them in July a "national disgrace."
Cheney said the allegations were "weaponized" against Kavanaugh. "It really is evil if you think about it," she said, adding that many Democrats are part of the #MeToo movement and claim to stand for women's rights.
She said Democrats tried to "take a page out of the playbook from Justice Thomas' confirmation hearing.
In October 1991, amid a contentious back and forth with Democrats -- including then-Chairman Joe Biden (D-Del.) -- Thomas declared the hearing a "national disgrace" and a "high-tech lynching."
Cheney said Kavanaugh was faced with "ridiculous charges" that included "running rings who were gang-raping women."
"We all frankly ought to be wondering what would be wrong with him if he didn't defend himself," she said in reaction to Democrats criticizing the judge's demeanor during his hearing.
