    BREAKING: American Bar Wants FBI Investigation on Judge Kavanaugh

    It is being reported that the American Bar Association wants a halt to the confirmation and vote for Brett Kavanaugh as a Supreme Court Justice till a FBI investigation is conducted. Judge Kavanaugh commented on the vetting he received from the ABA today in the Senate Judiciary.

    The left will not stop. They know Judge Kavanaugh testified well and that he will likely be voted in favor of after his testimony and after the words from Lindsey Graham. They don't want a vote to occur so close to the events of the day.

    Maybe a republican or more (Jeff Flake?) are behind this, too.

    I wouldn't think a Republican, not even Flake, would be behind this. It's the DemoQuacks. Most ABA are Democrats and contribute to Democrats.

    American Bar Association tells Senate: Delay Kavanaugh until FBI investigates assault allegations - CNNPolitics


    September 27, 2018

    Manu Raju


    Washington (CNN)The American Bar Association is calling on the Senate Judiciary Committee to halt the consideration of President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh until an FBI investigation is completed into the sexual assault allegations that have roiled his nomination.


    In a strongly worded letter obtained by CNN Thursday, the organization said it is making the extraordinary request "because of the ABA's respect for the rule of law and due process under law," siding with concerns voiced by Senate Democrats since Christine Blasey Ford's decades-old allegations became public.

    "The basic principles that underscore the Senate's constitutional duty of advice and consent on federal judicial nominees require nothing less than a careful examination of the accusations and facts by the FBI," said Robert Carlson, president of the organization, in a Thursday night letter addressed to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley and ranking Democrat Dianne Feinstein.

    "Each appointment to our nation's Highest Court (as with all others) is simply too important to rush to a vote," Carlson wrote. "Deciding to proceed without conducting additional investigation would not only have a lasting impact on the Senate's reputation, but it will also negatively affect the great trust necessary for the American people to have in the Supreme Court."

    The comments are striking because the organization gave Kavanaugh its highest rating of unanimous, "well-qualified" for the Supreme Court. Kavanaugh himself touted that rating at Thursday's emotionally-charged hearing where he denied Ford's sworn testimony that he attempted to rape her when they were teenagers.

    Kavanaugh noted he was "thoroughly vetted" by the ABA.

    "For 12 years, everyone who has appeared before me on the D.C. Circuit has praised my judicial temperament," Kavanaugh said Thursday. "That's why I have the unanimous, well qualified rating from the American Bar Association."

    In the letter, the ABA president says the Senate must remain "an institution that will reliably follow the law and not politics," saying a "thorough FBI investigation will demonstrate its commitment to a Supreme Court that is above reproach."

    Republicans have rejected Democratic calls for an FBI probe and are planning to hold a committee vote Friday before moving the nomination to the floor this weekend.

    Well, that's pretty sad, "Robert Carlson", you are the ABA, your ratings are your ratings, if you don't stand behind them, then what good are they? I guess in the future, your ratings shouldn't be used or considered in Supreme Court nominations.

    You ask what do you tell your sons and daughters? You tell your sons to be gentlemen and you tell your daughters if anyone ever assaults them, report it to the police. Don't wait 36 years and use it to try to ruin someone's life, family or career.

    They've had ample time to make a correction, still silence from the network.

    CNN Fails To Correct American Bar Association Blunder on Kavanaugh Investigation

    A CNN story which claimed that the American Bar Association had demanded the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh be delayed has yet to be retracted as of Sunday morning — despite the fact it’s materially untrue.
    The title of the Thursday piece by CNN senior congressional correspondent Manu Raju makes it pretty clear what’s being reported: “American Bar Association: Delay Kavanaugh until FBI investigates assault allegations.”
    “The American Bar Association is calling on the Senate Judiciary Committee to halt the consideration of President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh until an FBI investigation is completed into the sexual assault allegations that have roiled his nomination,” the piece states.
    “In a strongly worded letter obtained by CNN Thursday, the organization said it is making the extraordinary request ‘because of the ABA’s respect for the rule of law and due process under law,'” siding with concerns voiced by Senate Democrats since Christine Blasey Ford’s decades-old allegations became public.
    “‘The basic principles that underscore the Senate’s constitutional duty of advice and consent on federal judicial nominees require nothing less than a careful examination of the accusations and facts by the FBI,’ said Robert Carlson, president of the organization, in a Thursday night letter addressed to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley and ranking Democrat Dianne Feinstein.”
    TRENDING: Democratic Senator’s Mid-Hearing Email Blast Reveals Sickening Motive for Fight Against Kavanaugh
    You may perhaps have noticed the problem with this piece from that last paragraph. If not, Newsbusters‘ P.J. Gladnick certainly did.
    “Did you know that the American Bar Association recommended that the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh be halted until after an FBI investigation can be completed? Only one problem with the story. It’s not true,” Gladnick wrote.
    “It turned out the recommendation only came from the ABA president, not as an approved recommendation for that organization as a whole. So where is the correction?”
    If Manu Raju wanted to correct the story, the pertinent information wouldn’t be difficult to find. In fact, the Senate Judiciary Committee provided it for them:

    View image on Twitter


    Senate Judiciary @senjudiciary
    “The correspondence by Robert Carlson, President of the American Bar Association...was not received by the American Bar Association’s Standing Committee on the Federal Judiciary prior to its issuance...The ABA’s rating for Judge Kavanaugh is not affected by Mr. Carlson’s letter.”
    5:43 PM - Sep 28, 2018



    “The correspondence by Robert Carlson, President of the American Bar Association … was not received by the American Bar Association’s Standing Committee on the Federal Judiciary prior to its issuance … The ABA’s rating for Judge Kavanaugh is not affected by Mr. Carlson’s letter,” a letter from the American Bar Association’s Standing Committee on the Federal Judiciary read.
    Raju wasn’t the only one advancing the narrative that the ABA as a body was demanding an investigation, however. At least one powerful Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee seemed to to believe it, as well:
    Senator Dick Durbin @SenatorDurbin

    The American Bar Association does not make decisions like this lightly. A neutral, professional FBI investigation is our best path forward on the Kavanaugh nomination.
    CNN Politics @CNNPolitics

    The American Bar Association calls on the Senate Judiciary Committee to delay the consideration of Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court until the FBI investigates the assault allegations https://cnn.it/2Oi3G1q



    9:02 AM - Sep 28, 2018



    Durbin’s tweet hasn’t been deleted, nor should we expect it to be; politicians have no particular allegiance to the truth, after all. However, media organizations — even partisan ones — are somewhat duty-bound to report the facts. We’re a partisan conservative news organization (sorry to shock anyone), and we would have taken this down and issued a strongly worded correction as soon as that letter from the ABA was posted by the Judiciary Committee. So should any media organization.
    Evidently, CNN doesn’t subscribe to those very minimal standards of journalistic integrity. The only acknowledgement in the story that there’s any sort of contra-narrative is a quote from Kavanaugh which notes he was “thoroughly vetted” by the organization.

    “For 12 years, everyone who has appeared before me on the D.C. Circuit has praised my judicial temperament,” Kavanaugh said. “That’s why I have the unanimous, well qualified rating from the American Bar Association.”
    And that’s still the opinion of the ABA. They weren’t prepared to revoke it if there wasn’t an investigation. Robert Carlson was merely using his position to make a point and press for an FBI inquiry.
    Well, he has it, all thanks to Sen. Jeff Flake. That still doesn’t make CNN’s story correct, however. The error has been pointed out by more than one publication at this point. It’s still up there, uncorrected.
    And yet, they wonder why people call them “fake news.”
