Yes, and good riddance too for everything except a criminal trial!. The
constitution says everybody has the right of life and liberty, so that
right should not be taken away from you unless it has been proven beyond a
reasonable doubt in a criminal court that you violated a criminal law. But
the constitution does not say Brett Kavanaugh has a right to be on the
Supreme court for life, so the burden of proof is on  Kavanaugh

Because, with the important exception of perjury committed by Kavanaugh,
there isn't enough evidence to charge anybody with any violation of
criminal law,. but there is enough evidence for a rational person to not
hire somebody for a job. However if you want to hire a suspected arsonist
to be the night watchman at your fireworks factory you have every right to
do so, but I choose not to and because of that I have a hunch my fireworks
company will out compete your fireworks company in the free market.

And Spike I just have to ask, would you be saying all this if  Kavanaugh
was a liberal nominated by President Hillary Clinton? I suppose to be fair
I should also ask myself a probing question, would I be saying all I've
been saying if Kavanaugh was a scientist turned libertarian judge? I like
to think so although it must be admitted I'd do it with considerably less
