U.S. Sen. Mazie Hirono created a name for himself throughout Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation hearings three decades back. Now she is minding the justice -- describing him as a"political operative" and"not an excellent attorney" -- as she promotes her new memoir.
"The sham FBI analysis was so restricted in its extent that Dr. Blasey was not contested, along with other men and women that might have corroborated the allegations were not contested," she told the Times.
The senator stated Ford treated herself with"such grace" through her Senate testimony about her sexual assault allegations from Kavanaugh ahead of his confirmation.
"It was a comparison to Kavanaugh, who's only a political operative," she explained. "In my opinion, he is not an excellent lawyer."
She criticized Justice Neil Gorsuch, that, such as Kavanaugh, was nominated by former President Trump. She accused Gorsuch of earning some"really dumb decisions" because he is so"literal" concerning the law.
In her new memoir,"Heart of Fire," out after this month, Hirono writes that she informed Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg she needed to"live forever" following Kavanaugh's affirmation, according to the Washington Examiner.
Ginsburg responded only that there will probably be many more 5-4 choices due to the new conservative adapting into the courtroom, '' the senator claims. Ginsburg expired this past year, two decades following Kavanaugh's confirmation.
"It was not that she had been a Catholic, but there's supposed to be something called separation of church and state, that is getting fuzzy," Hirono told The Times. "Her faith, I did not care. What I really care about is using faith as essentially trumping every other right."
