Sometimes when I flip on the television or read a newspaper I worry that somehow our common sense is so eroded that we have lost all sense of logic.
First let’s check out the definition of vetted. Vetted -investigate (someone) thoroughly, especially in order to ensure that they are suitable for a job requiring secrecy, loyalty, or trustworthiness. Judege Kavanaugh has been vetted on several occasion. He is a sitting judge. He has passed the vetting.
Dianne Feinstein learns that someone alledges that Brett Kavanaugh committed a horrible crime some 32 years (?) ago. The victim cannot remember the year, the date, the location and the identity of the other person she alledges was a part of the crime. Then a week or so passes when this is perhaps discussed behind closed doors. It already doesn’t pass the smell test.
At first glance, from a logical point of view, a person who can’t remember the details of a sexual assalt doesn’t go public but reaches out to a politician with her concerns. She doesn’t go to the police. She doesn’t go to the FBI, she goes to a politician. Then it is not clear if she gave Dianne Feinstein permission to share her story. It is not clear who is paying for her attorney. The accuser has been in therapy because she has therapy notes. It is not clear if part of that therapy has been hypnosis.
Before we have yet another investigation on someone who have been vetted several times, perhaps we could ask some logical questions.
