  • Dem lawmaker: 'There's plenty of competent females' that can be Speaker instead of Pelosi

    Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) said Wednesday that a congresswoman besides Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) should be the House Speaker. “There’s plenty of really competent females that we can replace her with,” Ryan told reporters, before listing people such as Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) as potential candidates, The New York Times reported Thursday. His comments come as the battle for Democratic leadership in the House intensifies. Pelosi, who held the Speaker position from 2007 to 2011, expressed confidence on Thursday that she had enough support to be voted into the role. But many lawmakers are insistent about the idea of having...

    When Ed introduced the lastest player in the Christine Blasey Ford saga last night, it seemed like bad news for Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s detractors. The identity of the fourth person at the alleged party where Ford claims to have been assaulted turned out to be Leland Ingham Keyser, who describes herself as a “lifelong friend” of Ford’s. Unfortunately for Ford’s story, Keyser released a statement saying that she’s never met Kavanaugh and, like everyone else listed as party attendees, has no recollection of any such party. There’s one element to this latest revelation which should be setting off some alarm...
  • 'I told her that I believed her': Lawmaker describes meeting with Kavanaugh accuser (7/20?)

    The California lawmaker who first heard Christine Blasey Ford's allegations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh said Wednesday that she became convinced of Ford's credibility during a lengthy in-person meeting in July and that Ford seemed "terrified" that she might be exposed as an accuser. Rep. Anna Eshoo, D-Calif., met July 20 for roughly 90 minutes with Ford, who lives in her Bay Area district and is a professor of psychology at Palo Alto University, after Ford contacted Eshoo's office about Kavanaugh.
  • Before Kavanaugh Was Even Nominated, ‘Reluctant’ Ford Sent Letter To Congresswoman And Called WaPo

    In less than 24 hours, Christine Ford went from obscurity to becoming the most talked about woman in America. She claims she was reluctant to come forward with her accusations. Yet, when Brett Kavanaugh's name was first raised as a possible candidate for the nomination, she contacted both her Congresswoman, Anna G. Eshoo (D-CA), and the Washington Post tip line. Kavanaugh had not even received the nomination and she had already written a letter to a politician and contacted a major newspaper. Does that sound like someone who is wrestling with a decision? This woman has placed herself right at...
  • NYC Bar Withholds Review of Kavanaugh for Supreme Court Seat (Like they did Clarence Thomas)

    The New York Law Review ^ | September 13, 2018 | Christine Simmons
    In a rare move for the bar group, the New York City Bar Association is withholding a rating of Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump’s U.S. Supreme Court nominee. The New York City Bar said Thursday that it was unable to determine whether Kavanaugh is qualified to serve on the Supreme Court “because the public record is incomplete on whether he possesses the personal integrity necessary to serve in that role.” The city bar assesses whether a Supreme Court nominee is “highly qualified,” “qualified,” or “not qualified” based on a set of several factors. It’s rare the city bar has withheld...

    A source who said they were briefed on the contents of the letter said it described an incident involving Kavanaugh and a woman that took place when both were 17 years old and at a party. According to the source, Kavanaugh and a male friend had locked her in a room against her will, making her feel threatened, but she was able to get out of the room. The Guardian has not verified the apparent claims in the letter. It is not yet clear who wrote it.

    It looks like I spoke too soon when I said that the Kavanaugh confirmation process never reached the nauseating lows of the Bork and Thomas hearings. The Washington Times reports that Sen. Dianne Feinstein has asked federal investigators to probe a secret complaint about Kavanaugh. The complaint, reportedly lodged by woman, pertains to an incident that supposedly occurred when Kavanaugh and the women were in high school. The woman passed her complaint to Rep. Anna Eshoo, a California Democrat. She apparently is unwilling to come forward publicly to talk about the alleged incident. Buzzfeed contacted the woman rumored to have...
  • Democrats Force Committee to Postpone Vote on Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh Until Next Week

    The Senate Judiciary Committee was set to vote on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh today to the Supreme Court but the panel ultimate decided to postpone a vote on his nomination until next Thursday. Senate Democrats grandstanded during today's Senate Judiciary Committee — attempting to get the committee to adjourn. Knowing Democrats would attempt to stop further consideration of Kavanaugh's nomination, Republican committee chairman Sen. Charles Grassley sought and obtained a vote on a motion to delay the nomination vote for one week. The vote on Kavanaugh's nomination will now take place on SEPTEMBER 20. Republican Senate leaders now anticipate...

    Today, Diane Feinstein, Senator from California, revealed that she referred a secret letter to the FBI, for a thorough investigation. In this letter, an anonymous woman claims that Brent Kavanaugh acted sexually inappropriately with her when they were both in high school. This is an extraordinarily disturbing development. And while this revelation -- known all summer and produced after he has been questioned by the full Senate -- is enough to disqualify anyone from any appointed position, there is much more to reveal. Let us all consider the momentous seriousness of this horrific accusation. There is nobody reading this column...

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., on Thursday threw a cryptic curveball at Brett Kavanaugh, insinuating the Supreme Court nominee could be guilty of a crime even as Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee seek to delay his confirmation. The vague accusation comes after the Senate Judiciary Committee already grilled Kavanaugh and other witnesses and prepares to vote on sending his nomination to the full Senate. A spokesperson for Feinstein declined Fox News’ request to elaborate on the lawmaker’s statement, but there has been much speculation that she is referring to a secret letter that has been the subject of intrigue on...

    The top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Dianne Feinstein of California, said Thursday that she has referred a letter concerning Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to federal authorities. "I have received information from an individual concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court," Sen. Feinstein said. "That individual strongly requested confidentiality, declined to come forward or press the matter further, and I have honored that decision. I have, however, referred the matter to federal investigative authorities." Feinstein's announcement came shortly after the committee set a date to vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation. It followed a report Wednesday night...
  • So THIS is what Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s secret Brett Kavanaugh letter was about?

    As Twitchy reported earlier, Sen. Dianne Feinstein announced that she’d turned over to authorities a letter that had some incriminating information about SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh and a woman, possibly reaching back as far as his high school years. Of course, idiots like ThinkProgress’s Ian Millhiser floated the idea that Kavanaugh “may have committed a very serious crime — possibly even a sex crime.” A lot of people starting making #MeToo accusations. With that insinuation floating around all day, The Guardian has a source who claims to know the contents of the letter, and … well, it doesn’t even rise...

    After a week of lies, biased editing of his statements, and one fake Spartacus imitation, supreme court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh was unscathed by the left and looked to be on his way to being confirmed by the entire Senate. But the left demanded that the Democrats do something to prevent Kavanaugh from the inevitable approval. Therefore, Sen. Feinstein (D-CA) who despite being a leftist has problems with the far-left wing of her party tried a last-minute ploy to scuttle the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh that failed so miserably it ended \up making herself look like the court jester. Earlier today...

    Three leading House Energy and Commerce Committee Democrats are calling for an oversight hearing on the Federal Communications Commission's Lifeline program, a phone subsidy for the poor that has been disparagingly referred to as the "Obama phone" program. The program, which began long before President Obama took office, has been notorious for waste and abuse. The FCC enacted reforms last year aimed at trimming billions of dollars from the program, but recent reports indicate that people who are ineligible for the program are still receiving subsidies. The program gained more attention last year when conservatives seized on a viral video...

    Democrats in House of Reps. joined J Street in supporting Obama administration's attempt to force Israel into making painful concessions Seventy-four Democrats in the House of Representatives have joined the dovish J Street organization in supporting the Obama administration's attempt to force Israel into making painful concessions to the Palestinian Authority. “In our view, support for a two-state resolution is inseparable from such support for Israel, its special relationship with the United States, and its very survival as a democratic homeland for the Jewish people,” the letter said. Seven Jewish members signed the letter, including Reps. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), John...
