Lindsey Graham erupts: Kavanaugh hearing an unethical sham

Published on 27 Sep 2018

While questioning Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) slammed the hearing as an "unethical sham" and accused Democrats for using the event for political purposes.

Jenifer (Zarknorph) said:

THE WALL: SUPREME COURT PACKING - I examine some of the Democrats' proposals to "depoliticise" the Supreme Court.

The solution is simply - put the choice of judges in the hands of non-politicised professionals.

Confirmation hearings in front of Congress were always dangerous - the system is now totally broken.

Kavanaugh's confirmation was forced through in a shocking fashion worthy of a third world nation. Witnesses were humiliated attacked and threatened.

This man behaved as if he was himself very guilty and covering up for his own crimes.

Maybe this was the exact point when the US went entirely off the rails and started to plunge into a very dark place.

I don't know if there is any such thing.

You would have to find clueless idiots with no opinion on any issue - social, political or economical - and then ask them to set up the Supreme Court.

Don't get me wrong - John Oliver had a great idea...

I imagine Oz does things much like us and has none of the terrifying Kavanaugh confirmation.

The Attorney general and Governor general do most of it.

I could not name a single sitting member of our high court.

That's a bit extreme - but the knowledge that none of them have ever been politicians (nor even members of a political party?) should be hugely comforting to you.

Look again at that Graham Lindsey rant that shuts down the Kavanaugh confirmation.

Are you sure of that? Political appointees? Not done entirely by officers in the judiciary?

The PM can make recommendations, and likely does it through the attorney general.

As for stacking the court with "like minded" judges, I honestly would not know any of their political leanings any more than I know their name.

I know more names of the SCOTUS than I do my own high court!

Probably because the US system is such a spectacle.

Not being propagandised by Occupied Fleet Street?
