In Rare Move, ACLU to Oppose Kavanaugh for Supreme Court
“The ACLU opposes the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. There are credible allegations that Judge Kavanaugh has engaged in serious misconduct that have not been adequately investigated by the Senate. Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s credible testimony, subsequent allegations of sexual misconduct, the inadequate investigation, and Judge Kavanaugh’s testimony at the hearing lead us to doubt Judge Kavanaugh’s fitness to serve as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.
“This is not a decision taken lightly. We cannot remain silent under these extraordinary circumstances about a lifetime appointment to the highest court of the land. The standard for such an appointment should be high, and the burden is on the nominee. That burden is not met as long as there are unresolved questions regarding the credible allegations of sexual assault.”

Has anyone thought about this for a minute.
There is a business practice, ask for something big, crazy or outlandish, and when it doesn't work, you ask for something small and everyone agrees and is happy. The whole goal is to get the something small but you go though the whole process because most people wouldn't just agree with the small right away. I wouldn't doubt for one minute that any politician, or Trump would throw someone under the bus to achieve their goals
Trump has been oddly calm regarding Dr. Fords accusation of Kavanaugh. Some think he has been this way because he has had sexual allegations against him and didn't want to hurt Kavanaugh's chances. I don't think so, he has been so outspoken in the past. Yes he has cheered on Kavanaugh, but he has also said a lot of things about Dr. Ford that were unexpected too. I'd say if anything he has remained somewhat neutral.
If you follow the events he says he's for Kavanaugh, then says he wants to hear out Ford, Then asks why she waited, then says everyone needs to hear her speak, then supports Kavanaugh, then says Ford was a credible witness, then supported Kavanaugh.. See where I'm going.
The question I'm looking at is what if Kavanaugh does not get confirmed. I'm not questioning if he is innocent, if he is guilty, if she is lying etc.
I am simply asking what if. Who is next in line, would the backlash from his not getting confirmed fan flames so more people will vote a certain way, or not vote.
Is the end goal to get a woman in the seat, to get someone even more conservative with a squeaky clean past. I think that is the question that should be asked. All I have to say, is research the people next in line....

Trump can't win no matter the argument, supports Ford and he is dismissing justice and truth whatever the outcome is, supports Kavanaugh and he is dismissing every woman who has been abused
He is supporting both and will let the outcome be what it is
No doubt that you are right partialy but as a game plan, doubt it...
