A Democrat senator just called for the “extreme vetting” of Neil Gorsuch, demanding “every aspect of his background be critically and closely scrutinized.”

Well, turnabout is fair play… and after looking into HIS record, it has been determined that there are skeletons in his closet that he’s not going to want out.

Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal was alternately apologetic and defiant Tuesday as he battled to deflect a potentially devastating blow to his Senate campaign: he greatly exaggerated his military service record.

Ouch.

This isn’t going to go over well…

VIA| According to the Washington Free Beacon, Blumenthal said that he will personally ensure that “every aspect of his (Gorsuch’s) background” will be investigated.

The Democrat told The Wall Street Journal: “It is important that every aspect of his background be critically and closely scrutinized.”

But like most things when it comes to liberals, it seems a little hypocritical, considering Blumenthal’s sketchy past.

A 2010 report form The New York Times revealed that Blumenthal, then the Connecticut attorney general running for U.S. Senate, had repeatedly misled voters and the media about serving in the Vietnam War.

In reality, Blumenthal took advantage of college deferments to stay out of the service in the 1960s. In 1970, he landed a spot in the Marine Reserve, which ensured he never went to Southeast Asia for combat.

According to The Washington Post

“On a few occasions I have misspoken about my service, and I regret that and I take full responsibility,” the then-Senate candidate said in 2010. “But I will not allow anyone to take a few misplaced words and impugn my record of service to our country.”

Now in his second term, Blumenthal is threatening to examine Neil Gorsuch’s past? It seems as if Blumenthal is trying to shift the spotlight from his own faults onto someone else.
