The Kavanaugh Nomination Corrupted Everything It Touched

Westlake Legal Group ELG5s19PDH5cjZs0u-wg1gCqOyppBxWbTb-g1MR-3Lw The Kavanaugh Nomination Corrupted Everything It Touched r/politics

It began even before Kavanaugh. Remember, this all started with the blocking of Merrick Garland’s appointment.

(Thanks Mitch… You’ll be remembered by history as one of the politicians who damaged US democracy the most)

Exactly! This sorry excuse for a justice and human being (based on his actions alone during the hearings should have discounted him) should never have even been nominated.

Obama had a great nomination but because of the anti-abortionists obsession with the SCOTUS and the Republican use of them for their own power needs, we have this travesty.

And as a result, the Supreme Court of the USA has lost credibility. The Republicans (and Evangelical Christians) are doing a great job in turning the USA into a shithole country.

Did Brett Kavanaugh perjure himself during his confirmation hearing?

Westlake Legal Group V_ofAnR5qnlAUYeIldL-3MYGi1FpdIhT-RyXNaoiCDo Did Brett Kavanaugh perjure himself during his confirmation hearing? r/politics

The fucked up thing is that had he told the truth, it wouldn’t have been a huge deal. It was a largely pointless lie. I mean, many of us have gone to college and done weird shit. It isn’t a crime to engage in a devil’s triangle thirty fucking years ago, and no one in their right mind would try to block his nomination due to a threesome.

But if he lied about this for any reason, which he did, everything he said is suspect. I mean, he lied about something he didn’t even artfully lie about. He could have claimed “I think I saw the definition come up on Urban dictionary as…” and still evaded it.

The FBI reportedly did not investigate a previously unknown allegation against Brett Kavanaugh

Westlake Legal Group x2jFTMHCCw8LgSp6JPx_NRQV6ri5UhAS55PLg5xIQpU The FBI reportedly did not investigate a previously unknown allegation against Brett Kavanaugh r/politics

I am willing to cut people a lot of slack for things they did as teenagers – provided that they repudiate and own up to them.

If Kavanaugh had said “when I was in prep school and college, I drank a lot. As a society we have made many strides towards highlighting what constitutes both sexual harassment and sexual assault. I did some incredibly stupid things which I realize now was sexual harassment and even sexual assault, but at the time I only recognized as stupid party antics. I am completely ashamed at those actions, and I wish I did not do them. I ask for the forgiveness of the women that I disrespected, and I hope that I will be judged not by my actions as a young adult, but by my track record in the years since.

Of course, that would go a lot better if his track record in the years since showed actual remorse over those actions.

Julian Castro calls for Kavanaugh impeachment after new accusation of sex misconduct

Not always, it was Moscow Mitch that changed it.

“The nuclear option is a parliamentary procedure that allows the United States Senate to override the 60-vote rule to close debate, by a simple majority of 51 votes, rather than the two-thirds supermajority normally required to amend the rules. The option is invoked when the majority leader raises a point of order that only a simple majority is needed to close debate on certain matters. The presiding officer denies the point of order based on Senate rules, but the ruling of the chair is then appealed and overturned by majority vote, establishing new precedent. This procedure effectively allows the Senate to decide any issue by simple majority vote, regardless of existing procedural rules such as Rule XXII which requires the consent of 60 senators (out of 100) to end a filibuster for legislation, and 67 for amending a Senate rule. The term “nuclear option” is an analogy to nuclear weapons being the most extreme option in warfare. In November 2013, Senate Democrats led by Harry Reid used the nuclear option to eliminate the 60-vote rule on executive branch nominations and federal judicial appointments, but not for the Supreme Court.[1] In April 2017, Senate Republicans led by Mitch McConnell extended the nuclear option to Supreme Court nominations in order to end debate on the nomination of Neil Gorsuch.[2][3][4] As of September 2019, a three-fifths majority vote is still required to end debates on legislation.[5]

The acting director of national intelligence is withholding a mysterious whistleblower complaint of ‘urgent concern’ that may involve Trump

Westlake Legal Group qMXIN6s_iqW4MpsIQ0A4cgwnraVJqWWYYfnb6zDZk1s The acting director of national intelligence is withholding a mysterious whistleblower complaint of 'urgent concern' that may involve Trump r/politics

The House Intelligence Committee believes that the Office of the Director of National Intelligence is withholding a whistleblower complaint alleging serious wrongdoing within the intelligence community that may involve President Donald Trump or senior administration officials.

California Rep. Adam Schiff, the chairman of the committee, subpoenaed the acting Director of National Intelligence (DNI), Joseph Maguire, to turn over the complaint on Friday evening.

“A month ago, a whistleblower within the intelligence community lawfully filed a complaint regarding a serious or flagrant problem, abuse, violation of law, or deficiency within the responsibility or authority of the Director of National Intelligence,” Schiff said in a statement. The Intelligence Community Inspector General (IC IG) determined that the complaint was credible and a matter of “urgent concern.”

Schiff said the acting DNI was required by law to turn over the complaint to congressional intelligence committees more than ten days ago but refuses to do so.

Federal law “does not provide you discretion to review, appeal, reverse, or countermand in any way the IC IG’s independent determination, let alone to involve another entity within the Executive Branch in the handling of a whistleblower complaint,” Schiff wrote to Maguire in a letter accompanying the subpoena.

Another Trump lackey intentionally dragging their feet smells of corruption and an attempt to coverup the whistleblower’s complaint.
