Tucker Carlson: Kavanaugh Accusations Have Nothing to Do With Justice, ‘It’s About Abortion’

Fox News’s Tucker Carlson said Christine Blasey Ford‘s sexual harassment accusations against Brett Kavanaugh have nothing to do with justice and everything to do with the impact the judge will have on abortion as a Justice on the Supreme Court.

Carlson lambasted congressional Democrats for the “entirely political” timing of Ford’s letter — though he insisted that he wasn’t calling Ford a liar for her allegation against Kavanaugh. However, Carlson added, “that doesn’t mean she’s right. Human memory is notoriously unreliable especially over time.”

“Past a certain point, the past is unknowable, and that’s why we have statutes of limitation for crimes – not because our desire for justice dims, but because the chance of achieving it does,” Carlson said. “This story doesn’t have anything to do with justice actually or even what Brett Kavanaugh may have done in high school. Underneath it all, anyone who lives in Washington can tell you it’s about abortion.”

Carlson continued by saying that Democrats have made it their mission to destroy Kavanaugh over his ambiguity on abortion rights, saying “whatever the story is, it’s not about protecting women.”

“The larger lesson of this moment – and actually the past two years – is that the left will not abide losing power even temporarily. For liberals, political power is personal power and without it, they are exposed and terrified… If they are not in charge they will burn it down which is what they are doing now.”
