MONTGOMERY, AL — After multiple reports that the New York Times irresponsibly published accusations of sexual misconduct against Justice Brett Kavabaugh by failing to mention that the alleged female victim refused to speak with reporters about it and claimed she had no memory of the event, Judge Roy Moore (R-AL) releases this statement:
“The disgusting tactics of major news outlets who create fake news meant only to disrupt our political process must be stopped!
“I too was the object of false allegations, but unlike Justice Kavanaugh and others who have suffered the ire of the left, I filed suit against my accusers and their conspirators.
“For over two years I have not seen nor have I been able to question any of those who went on national television to tell their false stories just 32 days before the election in December 2017, and ironically I have been sued for defamation for merely denying their false and malicious accusations.
“So what should Justice Kavanaugh do? Nothing!
“He has been confirmed by the Senate and cannot be removed except by the Senate after impeachment by the House.
“Removal for failure of ‘good Behaviour’ under Article 3, Section 1 of the Constitution of the United States applies only during one’s term of office, not to allegations dating back 20, 30, or 40 years.
“The real purpose of liberal Democrats is to stop conservative views by defeating candidates at the polls using false allegations or intimidating them once they take office to silence their conservative philosophy.
“It is about time we stand up to their agenda which threatens to destroy our Country. I recently spoke out against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), an avowed Muslim, for her anti-Semitic comments and criticism of the U.S. military, and I will forcefully defend Justice Kavanaugh against the New York Times and against Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), who recently who introduced a bill of impeachment of Justice Kavanaugh.
