NYT uncovers new allegation against Brett Kavanaugh that the FBI ignored

So remember Brett “Bart O’Kavanaugh” Kavanaugh? He’s on the Supreme Court now because he screamed a lot at one of his hearings and the FBI did at most a 1/16th-ass investigation of the sexual assault and attempted rape claims against him. Today, in a feature on Kavanaugh accuser Deborah Ramirez, who claimed Kavanaugh thrust his penis in…

Pompeo: Trump would 'do the right thing' if offered foreign election help

The sinister derp-state campaign to pass Donald Trump off as a real president and/or human being continues. Today, it was Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s turn. Speaking with Face the Nation’s Margaret Brennan, Pompeo risibly claimed that Trump would do what normal presidents, politicians, and people do if offered election assistance from a foreign entity…

Former FBI official: Trump gave Putin the green light to attack us again

It’s almost as if Donald Trump isn’t taking the Russian attacks on our country the least bit seriously. Of course, if Russia suddenly decided to intervene on the Democrats’ behalf, you can pretty much bet Trump would send the U.S. Navy Sixth Fleet to Moscow before eventually realizing it’s not a port city. After speaking on…

Daily Beast: Trump 'beyond obsessed' with Andrew McCabe

I don’t know if this qualifies as a scoop or even new information, given that Trump once told former acting FBI director Andrew McCabe to ask his wife what it feels like to be a loser, but it does provide yet another terrifying glimpse into Trump’s hellscape of a psyche. The Daily Beast: Early last year, Donald…

Elizabeth Warren: FBI report didn't exonerate Kavanaugh, and he lied

Since Senate Republicans are treating the FBI quasi-report on Brett Kavanaugh’s behavior like it’s the Roswell aliens’ secret recipe for seven-layer salad, we don’t get to see it.  But Sen. Elizabeth Warren has reviewed it, and she’s not happy: x I've seen the FBI “report” on Brett Kavanaugh. 4 things are clear:❌This wasn't a full…

The cat is out of the bag.

What happens at Georgetown Prep stays at Georgetown Prep   Brett Kavanaugh What a total crock of shit that statement is. It’s also an illuminating glimpse into the mindset of the rich. What it says is that the pampered, rich, entitled youth of America will do or say nothing that will tip the fact that…

Not Sure What To Make of This CNN Story On Ramirez.

CNN reports that the FBI has interviewed Deborah Ramirez about Kavanaugh’s exposing himself to her.  Matt Shuham of TPM says of this report that Ramirez has supplied the FBI with names of witnesses to this incident: Deborah Ramirez spoke to the FBI and provided the bureau with the names of witnesses to back up her…

The hidden landmine for Kavanaugh and the GOP.

What a ride, huh? Don't worry, I'm not going to re-litigate the last 36 hours here, how can you make something this weird any weirder? But, there is one little thing I want to point out that is a so far unreported byproduct of today's whirlwind of events. So far, all of the attention has…

The dangerous veto power of right-wing rage

Many Congressional Republicans were shocked—SHOCKED!—this week at Donald Trump’s humiliation in Helsinki. Like the rest of the world, they watched in real time as an American president kowtowed on foreign soil to a dangerous adversary of the United States. Siding with Russian President Vladimir Putin over the repeated conclusions of the unified American intelligence community…

Hey, Jim Jordan! Your (Freudian) slip is showing!

Man, oh man! Jim Jordan (R-Blowhio) was something to behold today in his non pay per view Trumper tantrum directed at FBI agent Peter Strzok. Mostly, what I thought was how much I would have liked to see Jordan in action in a courtroom, striding around the courtroom screaming, “I'M out of order, YOU'RE out…

Gingrich: Fox News must punish me for comparing FBI to Gestapo and Stalin

By now, most Americans know not to take former House Speaker Newt Gingrich at his word. The Fox News regular and failed GOP presidential candidate, after all, is on his third religion and his third wife. (Callista Bisek, currently Mrs. Gingrich No. 3 and U.S. ambassador to the Vatican, was previously known as Newt’s “frequent breakfast companion”…
