Well, I guess that's why they have the senatorial reviews - as the court's focus are points of law, where politics is about the rights and wrongs.
You didn't seem to hold the same opinion about the hearings in the Senate about Brett Kavanaugh who seemed a bit rapey.

Oh. I'm sorry, I wasn't factoring in your obsession with Trump in my reply.

Courts are the ultimate arbiters of guilt and innocence in terms of crime. Clearly.

If a crime has been committed (pretty simple when it comes to rape - you're guilty or innocent) then the courts are absolutely the ultimate arbiters.

If a crime has been committed in election fraud - courts are absolutely the ultimate arbiters there too.

If no crime has been committed but there's still something wrong - then that goes back to politics. So hearings about whether the law is adequate happen in that chamber.


Standard process really.

You forgot the caveat...but there's still something wrong and the Republican led Michigan Senate Oversight Committee is prepared to listen to it.

The Oversight Committee consists of five Republicans and one Democrat. This bullshit got face time with them purely because they're Republicans, and for no other reason. All the "witnesses" are Republicans and they haven't called any witnesses who actually ran the ballot to rebut or contest the claims. This is political theatre, and it turns out this committee couldn't order an audit or a recount anyway! . This whole exercise is to create a "no smoke without fire" narrative the Republicans can use after Trump gets kicked to the kerb. This is Nazi-era "stab-in-the-back" mythologising. And when you've got the likes of Michael Flynn (pardoned at the weekend!) calling for a suspension of the Constitution and a military-run revote (a coup basically), its extremely disturbing.

A senate hearing for a Supreme Court appointment is somewhere between a job interview and license application. The statute of limitations for criminal prosecutions has nothing to do with it but you kept suggesting it did.

If Al Capone was found alive then all his crimes would be way past the statute of limitations but you could still refuse him a gun license or a job in Chicago PD.

Nowt'll happen @DaGaffer. I suspect they're laying the ground for a fight next term around voting laws. :)

And like I said, none of it matters anyway :)

Courts or GTFO was pretty clear.
If I recall correctly (which was ages ago) - I was saying that the courts are arbiters of criminal responsibility.

Which I repeated above. Very clearly?

Not sure what your beef is.

You implied that accusations that couldn't be proved in court were not relevant to the proceedings.

Ok. What we talking about again? There's a quote button to make things easy you know.

The irony of linking to an "msm" article about something you think they're trying to hide.
