Everyone, even FAUX news, is reporting that this 👆🏼New York Times story is factually incorrect, and is a “set up,” dictated to NYTimes, who are either in on it or really bad at their job. Word is this gives Trump his excuse to fire Rosenstein, whom he would replace with someone more pliantly willing to fire Special Council Robert Mueller.
Mueller is now investigating $3 million dollars that changed hands on June 3, 2016. That was the day Don Jr received an email requesting his presence at a treason meeting at Trump Tower. You’ll remember his response: “If it’s what you say it is, I love it. Especially later in the summer.” The $3 million changed hands between two people at that (nothing burger) meeting.
I believe the NY Times “bombshell” story serves another purpose as well:
It takes the attention off blackout drunk, frat boy, Judge Rapey Kavanaugh. Trump was doing so good, but he couldn’t keep his fingers still, ignoring his staff’s request that he remain silent on the subject… he tweeted:
Outraged? Many people are, but the NY Times story worked. It knocked Kavanaugh out of the headlines.
What had been in the news was Dr Ford, the woman who Judge Kavanaugh (allegedly🙄) assaulted and attempted to rape, requested an FBI investigation, standard procedure with every other SCOTUS, and was flatly refused.
Dr Ford has been receiving death threats. Her email was hacked and someone impersonated her online with the intention of smearing her. This forced her and her family to go into hiding, and her offer to appear and testify needed to be modified.
Seeing this as their opportunity to keep this credible witness from testifying, the GOP refused to accommodate her. “Monday, or we are taking a vote on Kavanaugh”. ~Chuck grASSley
Dr Ford was silent for a day, weighing her options. Republican Senator, Chuck grASSley, announced his “repeated attempts to contact her, eager for a reason to vote without anymore talk of Ford.
Ford’s attorney contacted the judiciary staff saying she is “willing to testifying next Thursday in a public hearing in Washington assuming her safety is guaranteed, Kavanaugh testify first and no outside counsels question her. She wants them to subpoena Mark Judge,” (the other guy in the room.)
The outside counsel request was due to reports that the GOP panel was considering retaining a defense attourney, who specializes in sexual assault cases, to question her. They want a specialist to ambush her.
The GOP made a counter offer, between coaching Kavanaugh:
No to everything, except a postponement until Wednesday, not Thursday.
Mental health break.
Okay, I’m better.
Then there were attempts to garner sympathy for blackout drunk frat boy, Judge Rapey Kavenaugh. He is very upset because he’s getting hate emails, so he wants to get this over with, for the sake of his family.
He owes his family an apology, and he owes Dr Ford an apology, and he owes me, all of America, and planet earth an apology, because he did this.
Mitch McConnell is unfazed by the uproar against kavanaugh.
I love Mazie.❤️ Senator Mazie Hirono (D/HI), my new hero, has held several press conferences speaking out against the poor treatment of Kavanaugh’s victim, by the GOP, and all men.
“Guess who’s perpetuating all of these kinds of actions? It’s the men in this country. I just want to say to the men in this country: Just shut up and step up. Do the right thing for a change.”
With regards to Chuckie grASSley’s earlier claim that Republicans had done everything they can to contact Dr. Ford, The Senator said:
And the crescendo:
“I’ve been fighting these fights for a — I was going to say f-ing long time. I want judges who are fair and qualified and care about individual and civil rights. If that’s considered liberal, as opposed to what I call justice and fairness, as I am wont to say, ‘F*** them!’ “
Kavanaugh’s fabricated wholesome family man, girls basketball team coach, persona is beginning to sour. People who know him are coming forward. This week I included in several of my posts, essays written by the ghosts of frat boy’s past, (his peers didn’t think he was a good guy.) But now:
“Harvard Law Students Say School Should Reconsider Brett Kavanaugh’s Teaching Job”
And Yale won’t be outdone:
Yale Law dean: Reports that professor groomed female clerks for Kavanaugh “of enormous concern.”
Here is a sampling of the opinions of people who knew both Kavanaugh and Ford in high school:
I hope the reason Ford is postponing her testimony for the senate is because she’s busy filing a criminal complaint against both Kavanaugh and his buddy, Mark Judge. He was the one who helped push her into the bedroom and locked the door.
She has grounds to file complaints for kidnapping as well as sexual assault. And there is no statute of limitations for sexual assault in Maryland. (According to a Harvard law professor.👇🏼)
Since Republicans refuse to allow the FBI to investigate her allegations of sexual assault as part of the vetting process, the state can do it.
Meanwhile, the attacks on Dr Ford, first by Kavanaugh, and now by the GOP, are a joke to a certain faction of society. South Carolina Republican Representative, Ralph Norman tried out a new joke during a debate yesterday:
“Did y’all hear the latest late-breaking news on the Kavanaugh hearings? Ruth Bader Ginsburg came out that she was groped by Abraham Lincoln.”
Rep Norman is a pig. I hope this failed attempt at humor, disrespecting Ginsberg, a great woman, and timed to injure Dr Ford, costs him his re-election.
This game isn’t over.
