Jonathan Turley: Kavanaugh Turned Things Around When He Attacked Dems

By    |   Friday, 28 September 2018 08:30 AM

Fox News commentator Jonathan Turley said on Friday morning that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh shined when he began attacking Democrats during his confirmation hearing on Thursday.

Turley, a constitutional professor at George Washington University, said that had the vote on Kavanaugh taken place right after Dr. Christine Blasey Ford testified that he sexually assaulted her in high school, he probably would have lost.

"Kavanaugh succeeded in taking the offensive against the committee without taking the offensive against Dr. Ford. That was the key," Turley told Newsweek.

"Kavanaugh may have lit a fire under Republican voters," who "had a view in this controversy, but didn’t particularly have an interest in its outcome," he added, saying that the swing votes in the party aren’t getting calls from other Republicans. Turley also blasted the entire hearing, comparing it to “reading the entire library of Shakespeare on cliff notes. It allows for little beyond getting the players and scenes. Listening to examinations in five-minute increments is quite frustrating. It guarantees little more than the most superficial discussions."
