There are similarities in the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings and the Brett Kavanaugh hearings, and I think they should be lightly explored.
Yes, I know that I will be using some comparisons, and this is the reason that I am writing this.
First off, Thomas was nominated by George H. W. Bush, a Republican. Likewise Kavanaugh was nominated by President Donald J. Trump, also a Republican.
In both cases, charges of sexual abuse/harassment were brought up by one single woman in each case, and fully supported by the Democrats.
In the Thomas case, the Democrats demanded that the charge be investigated, and although President Bush initially opposed that, he relented and allowed Congress to do the investigation. The results of which were deemed unsubstantiated enough to disregard and dismiss the complaint. Too bad for the Democrats, and the gnashing of teeth was very prevalent for a long while.
The major difference in the case with Kavanaugh is that the Democrats are demanding that the FBI do the investigation of the complaint, not Congress.
I guess the previous result upset them.
Well, now, WHY are they so adamant that the FBI do the investigation? They have brought the subject up several times, along with all sorts of threats. What is their agenda?
