Did Brett Kavanaugh Lie to the FBI?




Brett Kavanaugh really doesn’t want to have to sit down with the FBI and talk about the accusations against him:

[Senator Charles] Grassley continued Wednesday to resist calls by Democrats and [Dr. Christine Blasey] Ford for an FBI investigation into the claims against Kavanaugh. 

"We are doing everything that we can to make Dr. Ford comfortable to coming before the committee in an open session or a closed session, or a public or a private interview," the Iowa Republican told reporters on Capitol Hill Wednesday. "That's four different ways she can choose to come. So, I'm not worried about anything other than just focusing for the next few days on encouraging her to come."

They want to sweep this under the rug and make it a simple case of 'he-said, she-said’ before all of this is over. I believe that this is because the FBI has already asked Kavanaugh a slew of questions about his behavior, his use of alcohol and drugs, and whether there is anything in his background that would cause someone to question his ethics or judgement. They have likely asked these questions of Kavanaugh several times, since this is standard for how the FBI does background checks into Federal officials who are being appointed as judges or Supreme Court Justices.

So, at least twice now, Kavanaugh has given sworn statements to the FBI. What’s the chance that he was forthcoming and honest, given the fact that he’s had a history of not telling the truth?

If you think about it this way, the people shepherding Kavanaugh through this process already know that there are women who are going to come forward and make these accusations. They know that, when Kavanaugh was up for the Federal bench during the Bush years, he lied about those incidents and he lied about how he behaved in college. He lied because he believed there were enough people to help create a firewall between him and the truth. He lied because he’s a privileged frat boy who can’t help but stumble drunkenly and recklessly through life. Someone else will clean it up; someone else will pay off his debts and he’ll get a free ride for the rest of his life because he went to the right schools and served the right masters.

What these people backing him knew, going into the confirmation hearings, was that he had to be protected from having to talk to the FBI again. And why is that?

They probably suspect, and I strongly suspect, that there are people who have damning evidence of Kavanaugh’s behavior in high school and college. Pictures, testimony, statements made at the time, diary entries, and things of that nature. Impossible to refute stuff. They know this is out there, and if he goes in front of the FBI and lies again, this evidence will drop like a ton of bricks.

Oh, and Kavanaugh will go to prison for lying to the FBI.

That’s why Grassley won’t let the FBI investigate this, as per usual. They know this nomination is toxic and they’re about to put a severely compromised individual who has no business being a Supreme Court Justice through a confirmation process that is completely and utterly illegitimate.

This is a sham, and it’s an outrage, and it will lead to these same senators having to vote to impeach and remove Kavanaugh from the bench after a lengthy, drawn-out process none of us should have to live through.

They know it, and they’re too fucking weak and cowardly to admit it.

Goddamn these people. Goddamn all of them.

Democrats Are Trying to Save America

Never forget that Trump is a bum. A cheating, lying, stealing bum. He's the kind of bum that gives actual bums (who are usually down on their luck and doing the best they can) a bad name. He's a bum on purpose, you see, and that's the kind of bum that the American people want to see thrown out of office. He's never going to be presidential because he's just a goddamned bum, you see.

But, sometimes, I think the media is worse:
As Washington braces for this week’s expected vote to impeach President Donald Trump, partisan battle lines hardened on Sunday, with Democrats defending impeachment even if Trump isn’t removed from office and Republicans denouncing the integrity of the constitutional process.The Democratic-controlled House planned to vote Wednesday on two articles of impeachment against the Republican president, and the decision whether to make Trump the third U.S. president in history to be impeached was expected to play out along party lines. There is some d…

Spoiler Alert

Tulsi Gabbard is going to work very, very hard to re-elect Trump:
Tulsi Gabbard has been slowly edging toward leaving the Democratic Party and, it now seems more likely than not, launching a spoiler candidacy to peel disaffected left-wing votes away from the Democrats. Her “present” vote on impeachment, followed by a disavowal of what she called the “zero-sum mind-set the two political parties have trapped America in,” sets the stage for Gabbard to play the role of 2020’s Jill Stein.Left-wing anti-anti-Trumpism played an important role in the bizarre 2016 outcome.Die-hard Bernie activists, fired up with anger at the release of DNC emails stolen by Russians that purportedly showed the party had rigged the primary, demonstrated against the party outside its convention hall and tried to drown out the speakers inside with boos. Stein attacked Hillary Clinton from the left, then audaciously staged a grift-y fundraising scheme supposedly to hold recounts in the states she had labored to flip…

Trump Will Burn it All to the Ground

It is difficult to see how the latest war in the Middle East will end. I don't have any answers, and, really, no one else does, either.

Here's what people should pay attention to--this happened just as evidence of Trump's orders to the Department of Defense landed on the front page. This happened after the major holidays and just as we are beginning the 2020 primary season in earnest on the Democratic side (the GOP has decided to prevent another Pat Buchanan moment, circa 1992, from happening).

Every life that is lost is because of Trump's decisions.

Every penny that this increases the price of gas is a tax on the poor and allows people who regularly have access to Trump to maximize their profits.

Every American traveling overseas is less safe.

Everyone who cares about peace will be shouted down and marginalized because that is the media's job.

Every attempt to hold Trump accountable will probably fail because the GOP is complicit in all of his crimes.

Everyone ch…
