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 front of her during a drunken dorm party while they were both students at Yale, The New York Times rather nonchalantly dropped this I-would-say-earth-shattering accusation into its story:
We also uncovered a previously unreported story about Mr. Kavanaugh in his freshman year that echoes Ms. Ramirez’s allegation. A classmate, Max Stier, saw Mr. Kavanaugh with his pants down at a different drunken dorm party, where friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student. Mr. Stier, who runs a nonprofit organization in Washington, notified senators and the F.B.I. about this account, but the F.B.I. did not investigate and Mr. Stier has declined to discuss it publicly. (We corroborated the story with two officials who have communicated with Mr. Stier.)
Mr. Kavanaugh did not speak to us because we could not agree on terms for an interview. But he has denied Dr. Ford’s and Ms. Ramirez’s allegations, and declined to answer our questions about Mr. Stier’s account.
That seems, uh, significant.
Apparently, the FBI disagreed.
Oh, and then there’s this:
Ms. Ramirez’s legal team gave the F.B.I. a list of at least 25 individuals who may have had corroborating evidence. But the bureau — in its supplemental background investigation — interviewed none of them, though we learned many of these potential witnesses tried in vain to reach the F.B.I. on their own.
Hmm. It’s almost as if Republicans didn’t want to get to the bottom of these allegations at all.
But don’t get mad. Donate to Susan Collins’ Democratic opponent.
And then, what the heck, get mad. And stay that way. At least until November 2020.
Is Trump still chafing your arse-cheeks? Then Dear F*cking Lunatic: 101 Obscenely Rude Letters to Donald Trump and its breathlessly awaited sequel Dear F*cking Moron: 101 More Letters to Donald Trump by Aldous J. Pennyfarthing are the pick-me-up you need! Reviewers have called these books “hysterically funny,” “cathartic,” and “laugh-out-loud” comic relief. And they’re way, way cheaper than therapy.
