Fox News’ Gregg Jarrett slammed Democratic lawmakers just hours after the Senate Judiciary Committee wrapped-up its high-stakes hearings to address allegations of sexual misconduct against Judge Brett Kavanaugh Thursday; saying their “outrageous” conduct should concern all Americans.
“If Judge Brett Kavanaugh was not telling the truth Thursday at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on his nomination to the Supreme Court, he is one of America’s greatest actors,” writes Jarrett.
“Fundamental fairness and due process demand every accused person receive a presumption of innocence. If it did not exist, America would be a police state, where the government could accuse any of us of any crime and convict us without evidence. The liberty and freedom of each and every one of us would be endangered,” he adds.
“Both Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford are the victims of the outrageous conduct by Senate Democrats. And so are the American people,” says Jarrett.

JARRETT TO ROSENSTEIN: Follow the President's Orders on Classified Docs or LEAVE THE DOJ
President Trump ordered the release of controversial classified documents regarding widespread FISA abuse and political bias at the Department of Justice this week; setting the stage for a high-stakes showdown between the White House and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
Fox News’ Gregg Jarrett drew a line in the sand should Rosenstein defy the President’s demands Tuesday, saying the senior DOJ official should be immediately fired if he moves to block the release of the requested material.
“President Trump has ordered that numerous documents involving the Russia investigation be declassified. The records have long been sought by Congress under lawful subpoenas. Yet, the FBI and Department of Justice have consistently obstructed the release of these materials under the guise of ‘classified’ secrets. This is a convenient alibi all too frequently employed to cover-up wrongdoing and abuse of authority by those we entrust to uphold the law,” writes Jarrett.
“Rosenstein has every reason to suppress the records. They may incriminate him. He affixed his signature to the final renewal of the FISA warrant application to continue spying on Carter Page,” he adds.

GREGG JARRETT: Rosenstein’s ‘COUP ATTEMPT’ Cannot Go Unpunished
The New York Times stunned Americans on both sides of the political aisle Friday afternoon, publishing a bombshell exposé that claims Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein suggested “secretly recording” President Trump and using the material to remove him from office.
Fox News’ Gregg Jarrett slammed the revelations in a scathing report just hours after the Times published the article, saying the DOJ official’s “attempted coup” cannot go unpunished.
“Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s actions, as recounted by the New York Times Friday, are the equivalent of an attempted coup — a plot to overthrow the president,” writes Jarrett.
“He solicited others to wear wires, including Andrew McCabe, who was later fired as Assistant FBI Director. Rosenstein is said to have discussed recruiting cabinet members to depose Trump under the 25th Amendment,” he adds.
“Those who abused their positions of power to subvert the rule of law and undermine the democratic process should be held accountable,” Jarrett warns. “It should begin with the firing of Rod Rosenstein. It should end with a presentment to a grand jury for potential criminal indictments.”
