Lying to Congress under oath is apparently not a problem, everyone does it: Betsy Devos, Jeff Sessions, Scott Pruitt, Steve Mnuchin, Tom Price, Don Jr, Brett Kavanaugh… I’m unclear on why the formality of swearing someone in continues… perhaps nostalgia or tradition.
Brett Kavanaugh wants to be the next Supreme Court Justice.
Everyday I tell myself- this is the last time I’ll write about him, but he’s just such a jackass, I can’t stop. Anyway…
He has been a federal judge since he lied under oath in 2006. You may remember one of his more noteworthy judgements:
By now you know Kavanaugh has been accused of a sexual assault which (allegedly🙄) occurred at a party when he was 17.
There was another person besides Kavanaugh and the victim involved, someone else present during the (alleged🙄) incident.
Kavanaugh’s classmate, accomplice and good friend, who ironically is named Mark Judge, was the guy who (allegedly🙄) helped Kavanaugh push the then 15 year old girl, Dr Blasey Ford, into a bedroom, locked the door and turned up the music… (while Kavanaugh physically attacked her, covering her mouth so no one could hear her screams) that guy. He won’t testify. He doesn’t want to.
What’s his problem?
Mark Judge wiped out his social media, so that’s not open for investigation, but he has waxed eloquent several times regarding his days of partying in high school, saying he is “SHOCKED” about the things he got away with.
He may have (allegedly🙄) jinxed himself.
Mark Judge has described the high school he and Kavanaugh attended as “POSITIVELY SWIMMING IN ALCOHOL”, saying: “I’m a blackout drunk.”
Mark Judge wrote on one page of his yearbook: “Certain women should be struck regularly, like gongs.” His page also references “100 kegs or bust” and “Alcoholics Unanimous [Founder].”
He also wrote a memoir in 1997, “Wasted: Tales of A GenX Drunk.”
He’s an upstanding member of society.
This is Mark Judge today. When he was recently asked about the (alleged🙄) sexual assault, he said: “I never saw Kavanaugh behave the way Dr Fords described.” Makes perfect sense that a “blackout drunk” wouldn’t remember.
Someone remembers Mark Judge well:
Back to wannabe SCOTUS, Brett Kavanaugh’s, high school yearbook similarly includes references to the “Keg City Club” and “100 kegs or bust.” It also includes a reference to the ‘Devil’s Triangle’, one possible interpretation of which is slang for a sexual situation involving two men and a woman.
Again, Mark Judge doesn’t want to testify, and he has not been subpoenaed. He may not want to testify because he knows he is not a credible witness.
That never stopped Brett Kavanaugh. The more you know about him the less credible he becomes, which is why the GOP has hidden 93% of his records.
Dr Christine Blasey Ford is credible.
The two frat boys should be worried. She could, and should, still file criminal charges against them for what they did to her in high school. Maryland has no statute of limitations for rape or for assault.
The following is a letter of support a classmate wrote on her behalf and posted on Facebook:
A tweet on behalf of Dr Ford by another classmate:
And by someone who was part of Kavanaugh’s group, an essay on the website talkingpointsmemo.com/news/kavanaugh
Kavanaugh, who has lied very hard to be the next SCOTUS, has the sympathy of Donald Trump, Chuck (I’d like to cage fight you) Grassley, Lindsey Graham, Orin Hatch… to name a few. To them this is an inconvenience.
“This has been a drive-by shooting when it comes to Kavanaugh . . . I’ll listen to the lady, but we’re going to bring this to a close.” ~Senator Lindsey Graham
He also said this confirmation needs to happen “ASAP.”
Kavanaugh is the victim to them.
These GOP members of the Senate Confirmation Hearing want Dr Christine Blasey Ford to testify to them rather than allow the FBI to investigate first. Chuck Grassley says there is no need for an FBI investigation.
Hmm… not a woman among them.
What’s the rush anyway?
Are MORE allegations coming out?
Only if you count the 15 former employees, of former Chief Judge Alex Kozinski, who mentored Kavanaugh, then yes there are more allegations. The 15 women have (alleged🙄) Kavanaugh was aware of his mentor’s sexual misconduct, covered for him, and lied under oath regarding the matter(again with the lying.) The 15 accusers say they have receipts.
Dr Ford, the actual victim, was willing to appear, as requested, next Monday to share her story. Since her name has become public, her computer and email have been hacked, she has been ridiculed, and she has had several death threats. Because of the death threats, Ford and her family have been forced to move out of their home and hire security.
The threats impelled her, via her attorney, to request an FBI investigation into the matter prior to her appearance at the Senate Confirmation Hearings.
Trump is standing in the way of an FBI investigation.
Grassley and his gang are saying are happy (allegedly🙄) to give Ford a fair hearing as long as she does everything their way:
2. No FBI
3. Kavanaugh and Ford will be the only witnesses.
- Brett Kavanaugh doesn’t want to talk to the FBI.
- Mark Judge, Kavanaugh’s friend, and accomplice, does not want to talk to the FBI.
They know that unlike lying under oath to congress, lying under oath to the FBI has consequences.
I’d bet there are more women out there who have stories about Kavanaugh.
