Letter: Due process hypocrisy


Wednesday, October 10, 2018

Of course we will never know the full truth about the allegations against Brett Kavanaugh. And there is no gainsaying the fact that perception is colored through the filters of age, gender and political leaning.

One thing that is clear, however, is the hypocrisy of the nominee’s Republican supporters, in repeatedly citing how unfair it was that a man with an extensive record of public service should be submitted to the kind of judgment he faced, without due process. That phrase – due process – was invoked again and again.

The hypocritical element was the Republicans thwarting any approximation of due process, first by declining to allow an FBI investigation, then, when forced to allow it, insisting on parameters that made it a sham.

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, and the American people, were also denied the due process a legitimate investigation would have afforded.

How do you spell hypocrisy? G-O-P.
