Ever since Christine Blasey Ford came forward with her assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, we have seen Democrats and liberals take up her case without question. It’s a stark contrast with their reaction in 1999 to Juanita Broaddrick’s accusation of rape against Bill Clinton.
When questioned about how many of Ford’s supporters today believed Broaddrick then, Fox News’ Brit Hume was quick to point out that he believed her from day one.
I have always believed Broaddrick. How many of the newly minted woman-believers can say that today? https://t.co/Al6ScEdUpB

It’s Always Political
When it comes to sexual allegations, our elected officials tend to make the accusations political rather than taking them on a case-by-case basis.
Juanita Broaddrick came forward against Clinton, and virtually every Democrat senator sitting on that committee did not give her the time of day.
The most notable of these was Senator Dianne Feinstein.
According to Broaddrick, Feinstein actually refused to read her deposition about what happened with Clinton.
It is a fairly safe bet that had Hillary Clinton won the election and a liberal justice was being confirmed to the Supreme Court, these same allegations would be fought tooth and nail by Democrats.
In this case, Republicans gave Ford her day in court.
Senator Jeff Flake has even called for an additional investigation.
We have yet to hear a Republican say her story is fabricated.
What we have heard them say is they believe this is a case of mistaken identity, something the actual facts validate.
None of the witnesses named by Ford can back up her story.
There is not one shred of evidence to support her claim.
If this were a legal case, it would have already been thrown out because there is nothing of substance to justify charges.
Even so, Brett Kavanaugh, who has apparently already lost his teaching gig at Harvard, stands to lose his seat as a Justice as well as his current judgeship on the D.C. Circuit Court.
Any Democrat that says they are merely looking out for an abused woman is a flat-out liar.
This is and always has been about undermining the Trump administration.
If a Democrat says otherwise, ask them to reopen Broaddrick’s case and see what they say.
