The FBI report is a sham. Republicans pretending to care is a sham. So, let’s cut to the chase… Nope, not yet. There’s procedure to go with the pretending, and David Waldman covers that today, and what we can do about it tomorrow.
Senators are not to leak or characterize the report. In fact, they’d prefer you didn't look directly into their eyes when they talk about it. The White House characterizes the report as time to STFU and vote for Brett Kavanaugh already. Chris Coons was hoping for an investigation.
Greg Dworkin tells us there was no investigation, that the FBI ignored testimonies from Kavanaugh’s classmates which point directly to Brett lying under oath. Of course the FBI knew Kavanaugh is a liar before this latest investigation. Everyone knows Brett Kavanaugh will be horrible to women. Kavanaugh will always be a partisan thug. And, that once he is on the Supreme Court, that branch of government will become a useless drag on the United States and humanity. The people voting him in see every bit of that as a feature, not a bug. E Pluribus Unum becomes Pwn the Libs for a generation.
Armando reminds us that we lost the Supreme Court in 2016, 2018 is our chance for redemption. Will winning Kavanaugh or losing Kavanaugh motivate Democrats or Republicans more? Republicans are at risk of a wipeout in California, but Florida is on a knife edge. It’s all up to YOU, the voter.
