“They had an opportunity to continue with the wind in their back’


A Democratic strategist believes his party, justifiably, will suffer a backlash at the ballot box in November for its handling of Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court.

“Democrats will suffer the rightful consequences of using the victims of sexual assault to advance a political agenda,” Bryan Dean Wright, a former CIA agent, wrote in a commentary for

Wright said that with regard to the allegations of sexual assault by Christine Blasey Ford, Democrats “had the opportunity to do the right thing work with Republicans quietly, privately, and investigate the allegations — not in the public domain, not do a fact-finding mission in front of cameras, but to do it discreetly.”

“Instead we used allegations at the last possible minute, rallied up our base and frankly retraumatized a whole bunch of people,” he said.

“Not just Ms. Ford but a lot of folks in America who suffered from sexual assault. So that is the strategy that I found appalling watching these past couple of months,” he wrote.

Wright said Sens. Dianne Feinstein, the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Chuck Schumer, the minority leader, “really, really screwed up.”
