Complete exchange between Sen. @maziehirono & Judge #Kavanaugh on sexual harassment, former judge Alex Kozinski and #MeToo movement.

Donald Trump has no idea his staff is sabotaging him

Trump isn’t really running things

Trump hunting for leakers who talked to Woodward for new book: report

If you’re with me in this fight, can you sign my petition opposing Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court as Republicans rush through his confirmation hearings this week? — Kamala Harris

There it is—Jury questionnaire for Manafort's upcoming trial in DC lists Sam Patten as someone whose name "may come up in connection with this case."

Carl Bernstein suggests that John Kelly should resign and testify before Congress in the wake of the Woodward book about Trump.

TREASON? — Donald J. Trump

President Trump slams a New York Times op-ed written by an unnamed senior administration official as "gutless"

Trump Is Russia’s Weapon—Not Its End State

It's not enough for Brett Kavanaugh to say that Roe v. Wade is "settled law." Chief Justice Roberts said the same thing in 2005. Then he voted in favor of a law that would have forced 75% of Texas clinics to close. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

Kaboom! Never seen anything quite like this before. Bombshell NYT anonymous op-ed piece from INSIDE Trump White House. A must read.

Sen Patrick Leahy Accuses Brett Kavanaugh of Role In Stolen Emails At Co...


This Is a Constitutional Crisis

We have discovered evidence that Judge Kavanaugh misled the Senate during his 2004 and 2006 hearings. Truthfulness under oath is not an optional qualification for a Supreme Court nominee. Watch as I question him here

Nice touch @RussianEmbassy, throwing deadly poison into a charity bin. @PutinRF has no honour, what else would you expect from a paedophile that kisses the stomachs of little boys?

Jerome Corsi, Conspiracy Theorist, Is Subpoenaed in Mueller Investigation

We are filing suit against the Trump administration for abandoning longstanding prohibitions on injuring or killing over 300 species of migratory birds in New York.


Kavanaugh says that September 11 changed his perspective on the power of the presidency, and persuaded him the president should be above any sort of investigation that might interfere with their dutie

The Kavanaugh team does not think they have a Zina Bash problem-she's back front and center today

Brett Kavanaugh will not answer whether a sitting president has to respond to a subpoena because it's a "potential hypothetical."

#Kavanaugh just said that this quote is a “misunderstanding” of what he meant when he said it. Then, word salad. This is actually astonishing. What does “erroneous decision” mean?

NOW: Police and staff are keeping all seats for the public empty. No more public inside. There is a line outside, unclear if this is temporary. This is why you hear no more protests.

Kavanaugh Hearing, Day 2 Live feed

BREAKING: An Emirates A380 in quarantine at JFK Airport right now awaiting CDC officials after about 100 passengers became ill with fevers over 100 degrees and coughing. Flight 203 had just arrived from Dubai.

Kavanaugh just said that US vs. Nixon was "one of the greatest moments in American judicial history." 😳 ICYMI:it's his recorded position that a sitting POTUS cannot be charged while in office but SCOTUS found against Nixon in that case. So now, he's back peddling.

White House officials have finally obtained a copy of Woodward’s book — they didn’t have one yesterday when WaPo dropped explosive stories — and are now poring over it...

Kavanaugh's debt payoff was not a one-off. As @dcpoll points out, the same thing happened in 2006, the year he was confirmed to the US Court of Appeals.

#BREAKING: British prosecutors say they have sufficient evidence to charge two Russians with conspiracy to murder former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia. The suspects' names are Aleksandr Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov.

Iran's foreign minister says “Mr. Trump needs to stand aside and allow those who battled terrorism in Syria to do their work"

Facebook and Twitter executives will testify before Congress today on election meddling. "It's an arms race, and it will take the combined forces of the U.S. private and public sectors to protect America's democracy from outside interference."

In 2007 I sent Brett Kavanaugh this letter asking to explain his inaccurate and misleading testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee. I’m still waiting for an answer.

Opinion: The Kavanaugh nomination must be paused. And he must recuse himself.

Republicans could have picked from a lot of conservative judges, but only Kavanaugh has taken a particular position on the prosecution of a sitting president...

Grassley talking about the Dems being "courteous" to the committee rings hollow after the lack of "courtesy" during the Merrick Garland nomination. Everything rings hollow after the Garland nomination.

How did the nominee for the Supreme Court spend $60,000 to $200,000 on Washington Nationals seats—and how did he pay it off so quickly?

NYC fines unpaid by Kushner Cos.: Over $500K and counting

#Kavanaugh racked up a hundred Gs in debt. Then, the next year, whammo, the debt was gone. Paid by a friend, he said. No wait, friendS, he said. What was the $ for? Who paid it back?

Nike is a business. They looked at their demographics and decided they'd be just fine without the MAGA money.

.@carlbernstein: "This is deadly serious. Nobody should take any kind of comfort from this book or joy at what Bob [Woodward] reports. [W]e have Trump naked in a whole coherent narrative about his presidency... recklessness... dishonesty... it's a frightening, damning portrait”

Father of Slain Parkland Teen (Fred Guttenberg) Says Not Only Did Kavanaugh Turn Away As Soon As He Mentioned His Murdered Daughter. But Kavanaugh Himself Asked Security to Remove Guttenberg and ID'd Him to Security By the Bracelets He Wears for His Daughter.
