As of this writing, two more women have accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual harassment and assault after Christine Blasey Ford first went public. Kavanaugh is facing another Senate Judiciary Committee hearing because of these accusations. Never fear, though, the nominee has calendar pages from 1982 that will exonerate him, promise!
Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court is hanging in the balance after Christine Blasey Ford accused him of sexual assault when they were teenagers. The only other person Ford says was present when the alleged assault took place was Kavanaugh’s friend, Mark Judge.
What better way to confirm a new U.S. Supreme Court justice who was involved in nearly every single partisan touchstone over the last twenty years than to wrap him in warm and fuzzy impartiality? Never mind Brett Kavanaugh’s involvement in everything from indefinite detention to Bush v. Gore, he coaches his kids’ basketball team!
It’s been quite a week so far, from “truth isn’t truth” to an unindicted co-conspirator for a president. On Tuesday we saw two top Trump characters go to the “guilty” column, joining Michael Flynn, Rick Gates and others. The circle around Trump is getting tighter and filled with more legal danger.
All signs are pointing to the release of a recording featuring President Trump saying the “n-word.” It might not exist and he may have never said it but I think it’s safe to mark this down in the “imminent release” column. Sarah Huckabee Sanders says she “can’t guarantee” her boss hasn’t used the n-word.
President Trump’s crack lawyer kept working the cable news outlets to stick up for his boss. Rudy Giuliani pointed out that, after Trump and crew have been saying “no collusion” nonstop for months, if there was collusion it’s no big deal and is not even a crime. Rudy is out there downplaying collusion in anticipation of . . . hmmmm.
The Donald J. Trump “regime” is on track to gut the Endangered Species Act, a law that has been keeping plants and animals from going extinct for 45 years. You know, the law that saved the bald eagle. Trump and Congressional Republicans want to make it easier to do business and make money, who cares about extinction?
