The White House ties the hands of the FBI, severely limiting the scope of the Kavanaugh investigation

Remember how we were talking yesterday about how, thanks in large part to Republican Senator Jeff “I Think I May Have Located My Vestigial Backbone” Flake, there was going to be an FBI investigation into the charges of sexual abuse against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh?

Blasey Ford comes across as infinitely credible. Kavanaugh, aping Trump, comes out yelling about a conspiracy against him orchestrated by the Clintons.

It’s not often that I quote Fox News anchor Chris Wallace on this site, but he was exactly right when he described Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony today as “extremely emotional, extremely raw, and extremely credible.” Having listened to all of her testimony, I have no reason not to believe her when she says that […]

Christine Blasey Ford demands an investigation before testifying against Kavanaugh, and the Republicans push back

I imagine that, had news come out back during the last administration that an adult film actress had authored a book in which she went on at length about the President’s freakishly misshapen cartoon “toadstool” of a cock, it would have dominated headlines for weeks, if not for months.
