During his testimony, Brett Kavanaugh displayed a strong lack of neutrality and partisanship, which do not belong in the Supreme Court, writes Matt Ford of The New Republic. He alleged a grand Democratic, Clinton-inspired conspiracy against him without providing any evidence thereof. As a member of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, he is required to stay away from voicing such partisan opinions. His anger-filled testimony was in clear violation of that. Kavanaugh even inferred that there will be retribution for the treatment he is getting. Such a man does not seem to have the fair-mindedness or temperament to sit on America’s highest court.

Democrats have pounced on his words, trying to use them to prevent his appointment.
