Activists Disguised As Lawyers

In consideration as to the circumstances regarding a failure of the legal team to adequately inform Christine Blasey Ford “in a manner consistent with the best interests of the client” (American Bar Association Rule 1.3) regarding privacy, wherein several communications by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley extended offers to meet discretely with Ford at any place convenient to her, including in her home State of California, Fox News contributor Gregg Jarrett notes:

The very senator who Ford trusted to keep her story confidential encouraged the professor to hire Democratic-activist lawyers who may have been motivated to push for a public hearing in defiance of their client’s wishes is extraordinarily significant.

Trump Tweets Kavanaugh Support

Senate Judiciary Committee Chaos

Understand, this is not about Christine Blasey Ford. She’s a tool — a quite willing tool, but a tool all the same. This is not even about the eminently qualified federal circuit-court judge Brett Kavanaugh — it would be no different regardless of which nominee President Trump selected in consultation with White House counsel Don McGahn, the Federalist Society, the Heritage Foundation, and the rest of the originalist, conservative legal community come of age. Democrats do not want a model of constitutional fidelity and judicial restraint elevated to the Supreme Court. End of story.

Biden: No SCOTUS Pick Until After Election

On June 25, 1992, (then) Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Joe Biden (D-DE), delivered an emphatic floor speech, stating:

…it is my view that if a Supreme Court justice resigns tomorrow or within the next several weeks, or resigns at the end of the summer, President Bush should consider following the practice of a majority of his predecessors and not — and not — name a nominee until after the November election is completed.

And…

The Senate, too, Mr. President must consider how it would respond to a Supreme Court vacancy that would occur in the full throes of an election year. It is my view that if the President goes the way of Presidents [Millard] Fillmore and [Andrew] Johnson, and presses an election year nomination, the Senate Judiciary Committee should seriously consider not scheduling confirmation hearings on the nomination until after the political campaign season is over.
