Dershowitz Blasts Dems Who Call for Kavanaugh Nomination to be Withdrawn

Dershowitz Blasts Dems Who Call for Kavanaugh Nomination to be Withdrawn

By    |   Thursday, 04 October 2018 11:35 AM

Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz is taking issue with Democrats’ calls for President Donald Trump to withdraw Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court and move on to a new nominee.

"It sounds very familiar," Dershowitz said during a Wednesday appears on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” "When I was in college, that's what they said about people who were accused of being Communists. It doesn't matter whether you are innocent or guilty, if someone has accused you of being a Communist and you angrily responded and said you're not, then...you don't have the temperament to have the job."

"This goes all the way back to the inquisition," Dershowitz added. "When they would call you in first and make you testify, and then they'd present the evidence.”

He blasted Sen. Cory’s Booker, D-N.J., who said the issue transcends party politics and is a “moral moment.” Booker said Kavanaugh was not on trial. Kavanaugh faces allegations of sexual assault.

"Look, once you're accused of the most heinous crime imaginable, it turns into a trial where you have due process," Dershowitz said. "In America, we don't allow people destroy other people's reputations and careers based upon an inference of guilt."

Meanwhile, the White House said it had received the FBI’s completed report on Kavanaugh and was “fully confident” that the Senate would vote to confirm him.
