American Bar Association Issues Statement to CORRECT Fake News Reports!


Did you hear this week that “even the American Bar Association does not support Judge Kavanaugh”?

I bet you did.

Because ever major Crooked Media outlet pushed that story hard.

You know what they didn’t push?

The retraction when it was proven to be FAKE NEWS!

SIGN THE PETITION:  Tell Congress to Confirm Kavanaugh Now!!

That’s right, the story was a big whopper of a fake story!

In fact, the ABA stands firmly behind Judge Kavanaugh!

“The ABA’s rating for Judge Kavanaugh is not affected by Mr. Carlson’s letter.”

The Washington Examiner broke it all down:

A committee for the American Bar Association that evaluates the professional qualifications of judges said it still stands behind Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

The association’s president urged the Senate Judiciary Committee late Thursday to stall a confirmation vote until the FBI has conducted an investigation into Christine Blasey Ford’s allegation that he sexually assaulted her. 

The letter was not seen by the American Bar Association’s Standing Committee on the Federal Judiciary before it was sent to the panel, committee chairman Paul Mosley wrote in a separate letter to Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., on Friday. 

The Standing Committee “acts independently” of the association’s leadership, he said.

“The Committee conducts non-partisan, non-ideological, and confidential peer review of federal judicial nominees. The ABA’s rating for Judge Kavanaugh is not affected by Mr. [Robert] Carlson’s letter,” the letter concluded.

The American Bar Association's Thursday call for the postponement of a vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination was seen as significant because the Standing Committee had said a month prior that Kavanaugh was “well qualified” to serve on the Supreme Court. It’s the highest rating a judge can receive from the committee. 

"Each appointment to our nation's Highest Court (as with all others) is simply too important to rush to a vote," Carlson said in his letter. "Deciding to proceed without conducting additional investigation would not only have a lasting impact on the Senate's reputation, but it will also negatively affect the great trust necessary for the American people to have in the Supreme Court."
