Democrats continue to pile on Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Their public smear campaigns are designed to bully him into rethinking his future decisions.
And now Megyn Kelly did the one thing to Brett Kavanaugh no one expected.
The left’s latest ugly accusation against Justice Kavanaugh involves one of his law clerks.
Kavanaugh – to much fanfare –became the first Supreme Court Justice ever to hire an all-female law clerk staff.
Even left-wing radical Ruth Bader Ginsberg praised Kavanaugh’s hiring decision.
But one key rule in politics is to turn your opponent’s strength into a weakness.
And so liberals began to pick at Kavanaugh’s all-female clerk staff and made it into a scandal.
Liberals claimed Kavanaugh bought the loyalty of a prominent female supporter during his confirmation hearing by promising her daughter a clerkship down the road.
Yale law professor Amy Chua vigorously supported Kavanaugh when multiple women came forward with false allegations of sexual assault in a desperate bid to upend his confirmation.
Democrats hoped Republicans would delay the vote past the election and gambled they could win control of the Senate.
At that point, they would block any Trump nominee through the 2020 election and bank on the eventual Democrat nominee defeating the President.
Now that Kavanaugh is on the bench, the liberals – and their allies in the fake news media – are manufacturing a scandal surrounding Kavanaugh hiring Sophia Chua-Rubenfeld as a shady example of nepotism and, essentially, bribery for her mother’s support during a crisis.

But the facts don’t back up this allegation.
Chua-Rubenfeld is a graduate of Harvard and Yale and was already hired by Kavanaugh as a clerk when he sat on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.
And Megyn Kelly defended Chua-Rubenfeld.
“Those suggesting Sophia Chua-Rubenfeld didn’t earn her clerkship ought to sub out their petty envy for some shame,” Kelly tweeted.
Since being fired from NBC, many media observers have tried to figure out Kelly’s next move.
Kelly walked out of NBC with the entire 69 million dollars she was owed under her contract, so it’s unlikely Kelly is desperate for money.
Fox News CEO Lachlan Murdoch – Rupert Murdoch’s son – shot down any speculation that Kelly might end up back at Fox News shortly after NBC canned her.
“I’m a big fan of Megyn’s. I like her a lot. We didn’t want her to leave Fox when she did,” Murdoch told a media conference.
“Having said that, I’m very happy with our current lineup on Fox, and we won’t be making any changes there.”
There is much truth in what Murdoch stated.
Fox reshuffled their primetime lineup twice after Kelly left, and each time, they drew higher ratings than when Kelly was there.
Tucker Carlson first took over her spot and turned the 9PM hour into a ratings juggernaut beyond what Kelly drew.
Then Sean Hannity took over that real estate when Fox moved ‘The Five’ out of the 8PM timeslot and brought in Laura Ingraham to host a 10PM hour show.
Kelly’s lack of options at Fox made it all the more surprising she would jump into a Kavanaugh related controversy.
But Kelly could want to keep her options open should Fox move their primetime programming to the middle as they have with their news hour shows.
