Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh accrued as much as $200,000 in debt buying tickets to Washington Nationals baseball games. We'd still like to learn more about who they were for.

President Trump: "She said, well, it might not be him, and there were gaps, and she said she was totally inebriated, and she was all messed up. And she doesn't know it was him but it might have been him. 'Oh gee, let's not make him a Supreme Court judge.'"

.@SenateMajLdr: "We have hired a female assistant to go on staff and to ask these questions in a respectful and professional way. We want this hearing to be handled very professionally not a political sideshow..."

Christine Blasey Ford's attorneys have asked the Senate Judiciary Committee to allow for two trauma experts and the person who administered her polygraph to testify. Republican senators say that's not going to happen.

Rob Goldstone On His Infamous Russia Email: 'I Had No Idea What I Was Talking About'

In anticipation of Trump's UN speech, even the Russians expected him to address Russia's ongoing aggression against #Ukraine. They also pointed out that Putin didn't attend, because he has "more important" things to do

There's a possibility that the Mueller report will never make it to Congress. That’s exactly why @realDonaldTrump wants to fire both Rosenstein and Sessions. And why we need to pass bipartisan legislation to #ProtectMueller. Deliver full transparency and justice!

MANY U.N. DELEGATES WALK OUT AS TRUMP BEGINS SPEECH. Approximately 60 delegates walked out on President Trump at the UN Monday, including most of the EU nations, China, and Russia. "He's poison to the entire world. He's a liar, a racist, an economic dunce, and an overall idiot".

I’m old enough to remember when American presidents went to the #UNGA to promote peace and diplomacy, not engage in saber rattling.

Donald Trump is now seriously chastising all the leaders in the room for their human rights violations. After ripping into Iran as a "corrupt dictatorship" he starts talking about everyone "ripping us off" and the room has another gentle laugh at his expense.

Perhaps Brett Kavanaugh was a virgin for many years after high school. But he claimed otherwise in a conversation with me during our freshman year in Lawrance Hall at Yale, in the living room of my suite.

German delegation reaction to President Trump at the UN saying they're on track to become totally dependent on Russian oil:

James Roche, Kavanaugh's Yale roommate: "He was a notably heavy drinker ... he became aggressive & belligerent ... I did not observe the specific incident in question but I do remember Brett frequently drinking excessively and becoming incoherently drunk."

It's too late for the president to fire his way out of this. Too much is already known by the Special Counsel, federal investigators in New York, state attorneys general, Congress, the media and others. The more he obstructs, the more ensnared he'll be.

Some details below about the background of a third woman with sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh.

UN General Assembly openly laughs at Trump claiming his administration has accomplished more than any other American administration. I don’t think I’ve ever seen the general assembly laugh at an American president before. How humiliating.

Lawrence: Kavanaugh can’t get off talking points

"Do you believe that President Trump is going to stand by you throughout?" Brett Kavanaugh: "I know he's going to stand by me. He called me this afternoon and said he's standing by me."

“Based on my time with Debbie, I believe her to be unusually honest and straightforward and I cannot imagine her making this up. Based on my time with Brett, I believe that he and his social circle were capable of the actions that Debbie described.”
