Former Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) on Friday offered up a line of questioning for Democrats to use on President Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Franken, who resigned in December after multiple allegations of groping women, said that if he were still in the Senate he would want to drill down details on a statement that Kavanaugh made this week when he was nominated.
After being introduced by Trump during an event at the White House on Monday night, Kavanaugh thanked the president, saying, "Throughout this process, Ive witnessed firsthand your appreciation for the vital role of the American judiciary."
Kavanaugh then declared: "No president has ever consulted more widely, or talked with more people from more backgrounds, to seek input about a Supreme Court nomination."
Franken, a former member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that interviews Supreme Court nominees, wrote in a Facebook post Friday that he wanted to learn more about Kavanaughs claim, referring to it as a weirdly specific bit of bullshit.
Franked listed 25 questions he would pose to the nominee, including asking him if it was his belief that judges must obtain a full and fair understanding of the facts before making a determination and that the statement did not reflect a full and fair understanding of the factsisnt that right?
Franken said it was important to press Kavanaugh on the statement because its critical to recognize that the very first thing he did as a Supreme Court nominee was to parrot a false, partisan talking point.
We ought to be having a real conversation about what conservatives have done to the principle of judicial independenceand what progressives can do to correct it, the former senator said. I can think of no better example of the problem than Brett Kavanaughs nomination and the bizarre lie he uttered moments after it was made official.
And I can think of no better opportunity to start turning the tide than Kavanaughs confirmation hearingeven if it means going down a rabbit hole for a few uncomfortable minutes, he added.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) hasn't said when the panel will hold confirmation hearings for Kavanaugh, but he told CNN this week that it would likely happen by September.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Friday he expects the full Senate to vote on Kavanaugh's nomination before October.
He sill does comedy, I see.
The Fat Turd Franken, trying to resurrect his disgraced reputation on Facebook LMAO.
Shut up and go back to molesting women Al, that’s what you’re good at.
Yes, now that I’ve heard molesting rapist Bill Clinton wannabe’s advice, my day is now complete..
No Democrats are willing to denounce this dishonorable man at this time?
Perhaps the pervert Franken can come to Washington and grope Kavanaughs wife during the hearings. The RATS in Washington need more of that now that Biden is gone.
Maybe Al can move to a Communist nation and push for reforms to bring about a Socialist Holy Immaculate Triumphant Hallowed Observable Livable Empire (aka SH!THOLE)
Ask Stalinist Al what he’d ask the corrupt AF FBI agents.
He did the same to all Americans when he STOLE a Senate seat with fabricated ballots and a sliding standard. His was the magic vote that passed Obamacare.
FUAS in the arse, all night long
“judicial independence” = rule by left-wing lawyers who are answerable to no one except the evil pukes who maneuvered them onto the bench.
The Groper has been calling conservatives liars for a long time, but with no facts at all to back up his claims. The guy is just a bitter partisan ex-comedian.
1. The nonsense notion that because J Kavanaugh made a single sweeping statement after the biggest announcement of his lifetime, that means that he doesn't do a thorough job when making judicial opinions... and of course, once we make "thorough enough" the benchmark, nothing will ever be "enough" for the psychotic Left today.
2. Exactly how does Al Franken know that Trump DIDN'T consult more widely than any president before him? How extensive was his research? How many weeks did he pore over the records form the past to make his conclusion?
“the very first thing he did as a Supreme Court nominee was to parrot a false, partisan talking point.
We ought to be having a real conversation about what conservatives have done to the principle of judicial independenceand what progressives can do to correct it,”
Well that sounds pretty partisan to me. Hypocrite.
Advice from Breast Groper?
He’s hungrier than Hillary. He wants back in The Game.
Bet on it! :-D
