If Democrats won elections, they wouldn’t have to resort to such childish tactics when they don’t get their way. Apparently, they didn’t act crazy enough when Neil Gorsuch was nominated for a spot on the Supreme Court, so they’ve upped the ante with Brett Kavanaugh.
The latest stunt is filing a complaint of perjury against Kavanaugh, and the Democrats think Merrick Garland is going to review it.
The Democratic Coalition, a controversial PAC, claimed on Saturday it had filed a perjury complaint against President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
The group announced in a statement that its complaint was filed with the Department of Justice and will also be filed by in the D.C. District Court on Monday.
And, as with everything in Washington these days, the perjury complaint comes with a twist. According to the Democratic Coalition’s statement, their complaint will be reviewed by none other than Merrick Garland.
There’s only one problem. These bozos don’t have the authority to file a criminal complaint. Ken White, aka Popehat on Twitter is well-versed in this area and tweeted the following:
Only the government can file a federal criminal complaint. You can send something you label a criminal complaint, but you’re basically cosplaying, kind of like a sovereign citizen. These are serious times. Try to be more serious, dipshit. https://t.co/9ohgpoVETU

I’d say the entire farce is a stain on the Democrats but what would it matter? They have lost all sense of reality because of their loathing of President Trump. Brett Kavanaugh has over 300 cases during his time on the DC Circuit. If they were serious about his record, that’s what they’d focus on.
Instead, they’re having “AHA!” moments about emails and farting out nonsense accusations of perjury. Things won’t get better for them and Merrick Garland is not going to save them.
