Republicans stunned to learn voters understand exactly what their tax cut did

The PR firm best known for its work with the Swift Boat Veterans in 2004 helped Ed Whelan stoke his wild Kavanaugh alibi

Former Pres. Barack Obama: "The Republicans in Congress right now? They're no check on the White H

The same day Trump Jr. emailed "if it's what you say I love it," $3,300,000 reportedly began moving between two of the men who orchestrated the Trump Tower meeting: Aras Agalarov and Ike Kaveladze. Mueller is examining the transaction, BuzzFeed reports.

The governor and lieutenant governor of Alaska -- both independents -- issued statement opposing Kavanaugh's nomination

Trump’s comments on Christine Blasey Ford just triggered a wave of women posting their experiences with sexual assault and explaining their decisions not to report their attackers. Their stories are gut-wrenching.

NBC confirms ABC report: Michael Cohen is providing Mueller's team with info on Trump's possible biz dealings with Russia and any contacts his campaign had with Russia during the 2016 election, according to a person with direct knowledge of the matter.

.@SenateMajLdr & @ChuckGrassley You’re demanding a female outside counsel to question Ford instead of your 11 cowardly Rep men. Shameless. But you can authorize any of the 6 Rep women senators to do so: Collins Murkowski Fischer Capito Ernst Hyde-Smith

NBC News: 4 career Justice Department officials were in the room when Rosenstein made the remark, including Scott Schools (who would later sign-off on McCabe's firing). FBI attorney Lisa Paige was also there. Two people say Rosenstein's remarks were sarcastic:

WaPo clear: Rosenstein is the person rebutting this BS “said the wire comment came in response to McCabe’s pushing for an investigation into the president. Rosenstein responded with a sarcastic comment along the lines of, “What do you want to do, Andy, wire the President?””

FEINSTEIN: Dr. Ford has told Congress she can’t come before Thursday. GOP has announced that a hearing will be held on Wednesday.

"The New York Times’s story is inaccurate and factually incorrect. I will not further comment on a story based on anonymous sources who are obviously biased against the Department and are advancing their own personal agenda.” - Dep AG Rosenstein statement to CNN

Trump is willing to put sources from allied countries at risk to try prove a conspiracy theory. Ironically, by alienating our allies, Trump reveals his true colors. What's it called when you support an enemy during wartime?

Rod Rosenstein must be fired today. @realDonaldTrump

Let me be 100% clear: no one associated with Andrew McCabe or his team shared, read, described, whispered or blinked in Morse Code any part of his memos with any reporter.

FWIW, the NYT story out today re: Rosenstein wanting to secretly record tRUmp for 25th amendment, doesn’t sound like anything Rod would do. But it does sound like something Conway/Miller/Bannon invented. As usual, NYT is carrying water for the WH Obstruction of Justice machine.

PayPal bans Alex Jones, saying Infowars "promoted hate or discriminatory intolerance"

The Planners Of The Trump Tower Meeting Moved Millions, And Mueller Is Now Investigating

I have a constitutional duty to advise and consent. That means asking questions of a nominee for the #SupremeCourt who has been credibly accused of sexual assault.

NEW: John Dowd, while heading Trump's legal team, tried to send money from the WH legal defense fund to lawyers for Gates + Manafort. When that was rebuffed, he solicited donors + pledged $25K of his own to Manafort's fund. He didn't follow through

I will not forfeit my ability to question #Kavanaugh and anyone else who comes before the committee with testimony, no matter how uncomfortable it may make the 11 men across the dais

As we get closer to the election, be on the lookout for #provokatsiya designed to divide, inflame, and scare more GOP voters to the polls. It will look like the left is behind it, but it’s really the kook-right/Kremlin. Keep your heads, and the ship on an even keel, patriots.

It’s the cover-up they can nail you on! Kavanaugh to Hatch to Whelan: if true, Kavanaugh should not be confirmed: Ed Whelan’s tweets have created a second Kavanaugh scandal

Nunes & Trump were blocked from their selective release of highly classified docs by law enforcement. Nunes said the release was designed to help him & the GOP win the midterms. What does it say about Nunes that he would risk lives to win an election?

The New York Times is being played.

Chances Trump uses this story to fire Rosenstein?

Andy McCabe’s lawyer on Rosenstein report

Why did he put all the evidence in his bio? 100 Keg Club? Boofing? #DevilsTriangle? FFFF? SENATE MUST ASK HIM

A highly offensive misunderstanding of surviving trauma. 1000s & 1000s of strong women have kept being assaulted to themselves for a variety of understandable reasons. The president doesn't even try to understand trauma survivors—he'd rather use their pain for political purposes.

WASHINGTON — The deputy attorney general, Rod J. Rosenstein, suggested last year that he secretly record President Trump in the White House to expose the chaos consuming the administration, and he discussed recruiting cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Mr. Trump from office for being unfit.

EXCLUSIVE: Rosenstein discussed invoking the 25th Amendment to oust Trump in the days after Comey was fired in May 2017. Rosenstein also discussed wearing a wire to secretly record his conversations with Trump.


Senator McConnell just said he has the votes to confirm Brett Kavanaugh. Is he lying or are you lying when you say you're undecided?

Yale Law dean: Reports that professor groomed female clerks for Kavanaugh 'of enormous concern'

Why GOP Senators want someone else to question accuser

In other words, this is a blatant lie. He’s speaking about an effort that he spent months on. He knows he’s lying. We are long, long past the time when he deserved the benefit of the doubt. He is a liar. That is an easily provable fact

Guys like this should not be Supreme Court Justices...or girls basketball coaches.

Oh snap. There is zero chance Kavanaugh didn’t know. If the Senators communication director did as this appears to show this was totally coordinated.

Christine Ford on Whelan's argument that she mixed up Kavanaugh with his classmate: “I knew them both ... There is zero chance that I would confuse them.”

There is no statute of limitations in Maryland for a felony like what Brett Kavanaugh is accused of. If Dr. Ford ever wanted to pursue it that way, she could make a criminal complaint - even if it's after Republicans confirm Kavanaugh.

I repeat: someone isn't getting a plea deal.

Paul Manafort's plea deal with Robert Mueller says that if Manafort’s guilty pleas or convictions are wiped out for any reason, prosecutors can charge him with any other crimes he may have confessed to

This is the news the White House had to be most worried about when it comes to people flipping against the president.

.@TGowdySC: “I don’t know how an FBI investigation would help — unless they’re able to locate witnesses that can either corroborate or contradict.”

Mazie Hirono tells ABC that Chuck Grassley's claim that Republicans have done everything they can to contact Dr. Ford "is such bullshit I can hardly stand it."

Ford’s attorney told Judiciary staff that she is open to testifying next Thursday in a public hearing in Washington assuming her safety is guaranteed, Kavanaugh testify first and no outside counsels question her. She wants them to subpoena Mark Judge. GOP will now mull it over

The failure of Judiciary Chair Grassley to follow the standard procedure & allow the FBI to conduct its investigation, instead disingenuously claiming his Cmte. should do it, suggests he doesn't want the truth b/c it jeopardizes his desired outcome.

I’m so proud of @KimsMom3. Her daughter Kimberly was fatally shot inside her high school in Santa Fe, Texas. Ted Cruz won’t return her calls, so tonight she stood on a chair at his rally and questioned him as his supporters hurled insults and booed her.

Kavanaugh is supposed to teach a class at Harvard. These students want him investigated first.

Check this well researched thread, up & down, relating to McConnell's in-laws, Chao family. Elaine's dad in particular is connected to the ChiCom Govt.The Chao's also have a deep connection to Harvard Uni, similar in nature to S. Schwartzman's Tsinghua Uni connection
