DALLAS — In an interview on Fox News on Sept. 18 with Shannon Bream, Dr. Robert Jeffress, the pastor of the 13,000-member First Baptist Church of Dallas, called for an FBI investigation into possible collusion between Democrats and Kavanaugh accuser Dr. Ford to derail a Supreme Court confirmation. He also reported that he had talked with the White House several times in the last 24 hours and the Administration’s support for Kavanaugh “is as strong as ever.”
As a follow-up, Dr. Jeffress issues the following statement:
“Sexual assault is a heinous crime, and I feel empathy for all of those who have been victimized by it. I do not know with certainty who is telling the truth, but what I know with absolute certainty is that Democrats don’t care about the truth. If they were truly interested in justice, they would not have sat on this report until the hearings were completed. Senator Feinstein could have shared this information with her colleagues without revealing the accuser’s identity as soon as she received the letter. The Democrats’ only goal is to derail the Kavanaugh confirmation.
“America sees right through the gross hypocrisy of the left and the feigned concern of Democrats for the abuse of women. Their real concern with Judge Kavanaugh is that he might restrict in any way the murder of 700,000 females in the womb through abortion every year.
“It’s time for this desperate ploy of the Democrats to be brought to a swift conclusion. Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh should testify on Sept. 24, and the committee and then the Senate should vote swiftly for confirmation after that.”
