Democrats have conducted their own investigation into the abuse allegations against DNC Deputy Chair Keith Ellison and have cleared him because the claims can’t be substantiated. Their hypocrisy over this is unreal. Why doesn’t Brett Kavanaugh get the same benefit of the doubt?
The Star Tribune reports:
DFL inquiry can’t substantiate Ellison abuse allegation; report sent to law enforcement
The Minnesota DFL on Monday referred an internal report on a domestic abuse claim against Keith Ellison to local authorities for further investigation, after an attorney hired by the party found the claim could not be substantiated.
The decision promises to keep alive lingering allegations against the DFL candidate for attorney general, who has denied that he tried to drag a former girlfriend, Karen Monahan, off a bed during a fight in 2016.
“For the purpose of objectivity and getting all of the facts regarding these allegations, we have decided to forward the information in the investigation to local authorities in order to let them review the contents and determine whether further investigation is warranted,” read a statement released Monday afternoon by Ken Martin, the chairman of the DFL.
The party declined to release the report produced by Susan Ellingstad, a Minneapolis attorney it hired to conduct the investigation. Martin through a party spokesman declined a follow-up interview request, and Ellingstad did not return a call seeking comment.
As the saying goes, if it weren’t for double standards, Liberals wouldn’t have any.
