This is the exact template used in the Kavanaugh smear. Uncorroborated, salacious, off-the-wall allegations of sexual misconduct, including accusations of high school gang rape rings, were leaked to the media by the Left to smear Kavanaugh. With the “validation” of a complicit, biased media’s reporting, Democrats endlessly pushed the baseless accusations, further ruining the reputation of Mr. Kavanaugh and Republicans in general. Senator Dianne Feinstein was even able speak of gang rape rings during a highly-publicized Senate Judiciary Committee hearing because of the tactic so eloquently explained by Pelosi.
It didn’t matter that all of the allegations were uncorroborated with serious credibility gaps; the damage was already done to a good man, all for political gain. The “wrap-up smear,” if you will, was completed, and Kavanaugh had his name forever tarred.
