While GOP commercials defending both the Government Shutdown and the manufactured crisis at the Southern border would’ve been absurd given recent polls, how is it that the Democratic Party didn’t go for the jugular with commercials juxtaposing Wilbur Ross', Larry Kudlow’s, and Laura Trump’s comments with unpaid government workers at food pantries?
Due process is about the relationship between the state and a citizen in terms of the former’s authority and the latter’s rights. But the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing has nothing to do with a clear, definite understanding of due process. The confirmation process is a political, not a legal procedure, slapped together by Congressional staffers. The stakes may be high in this process, but there are no rules established by law to govern them. General notions of “fairness” may be more appropriate when discussing how Kavanaugh should be treated, but “due process” isn’t required to be one of them.
