  • Is Tulsi Gabbard The Latest 2020 Democrat Hopeful?

    Is Rep. Tulsi Gabbard preparing for a run in the 2020 Democrat primary for president? The Hawaiian representative is the first Hindu to serve in Congress and an Iraqi war veteran. She’s also a Bernie Bro anti-war progressive who has even managed to get sideways with Hawaii’s teacher union. That takes some doing for a Democrat to lose the endorsement of a teacher’s union. She was one of just three representatives and the only Democrat who refused to condemn Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad’s genocidal chemical attack on his own people. After the attack, Gabbard traveled to Syria to meet...

    Full title: Sen. Hirono Condemns McConnell Calling Leftist Protestors a 'Mob', Says It 'Dangerously Underestimates' Them Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) slammed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) Thursday for using the word mob in reference to left-wing protestors that have been targeting GOP lawmakers over the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. It is the richest of ironies that the majority leader has taken to calling those opposed to the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh a mob when several nights a month the president whips his supporters into a frenzy to attack his target of choice, she said in a...

    Democratic U.S. Sen. Mazie Hirono says she was disappointed by recent comments Sen. Lindsey Graham made on Fox News, in which he sharply criticized her role in the confirmation hearings of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Hirono said that she had been able to work with Graham on bipartisan issues in the past. I do think Lindsey is channeling Trump to a great extent, Hirono told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser on Tuesday. Im very disappointed because I worked with Lindsey on immigration issues and other issues Frankly, it is so outrageous; it just shows that they will say anything to...

    So far, the Senate has managed to keep the FBI report on their supplemental background check of Brett Kavanaugh from leaking. Who knew Washington could keep a secret? Late last night, however, Senate Judiciary chair Chuck Grassley released the report’s executive summary, which only took one page to write. Their conclusion was even more terse: INBOX: Sen. Grassley just emailed an executive summary of the FBI investigation report. It's concise enough to fit in one screenshot.— Steven Mazie (@stevenmazie) October 5, 2018 The Supplemental Background Investigation confirms what the Senate Judiciary Committee concluded after its investigation: there is...

    Hes going to be on the Supreme Court with a huge taint and a big asterisk after his name, said Ms. Hirono on ABCs This Week. The partisanship that he showed was astounding. Ms. Hirono, a prominent Kavanaugh critic, made the rounds on the Sunday shows blasting Republicans for their support of President Trumps nominee, in particular Sen. Susan Collins, Maine Republican. . . . Ms. Hirono called her explanation insulting. To say that she thinks that Dr. Ford thinks that she was assaulted, what is that? Is she mistaken? asked Ms. Hirono.

    Fox News ^ | 7 October 2018 | Gregg Re
    Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins -- a key swing-vote whose dramatic floor speech on Friday assured Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court -- revealed on Sunday that she initially thought Kavanaugh "perhaps needed to withdraw" after she heard Christine Blasey Ford's "very compelling and painful" testimony. But then, Collins said, "When [Kavanaugh] came back with a forceful denial, the anger and anguish he showed, and then the lack of corroboration, led me back to the fundamental issues to our legal system." Both Ford and Kavanaugh testified at length in late September before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Ford alleged that...
  • Grassley Sends Scathing Letter To Fords Attorneys Has Serious Dirty & Looking To Charge Them

    Hidden by the rabid anti-Trump media, who were preoccupied with their role in reporting non-stop the coverage of the protesters who were paid to disrupt the hearings for President Trumps Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was a letter that Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley sent to the attorneys for accuser Christine Blasey-Ford. Chairman Grassley sent the letter on Thursday, the same day as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell moved for cloture to advance Kavanaughs nomination to the full Senate where a vote would them be taken (Friday) to open a 30-hour period of comment and consideration before the final confirmation...

    As hinted at days earlier here at D.C. Whispers, the Senate Judiciary Committee is now preparing to launch a full investigation into the machinations of Christine Blasey Fords legal team and the office of Senator Diane Feinstein based upon recently uncovered information. It appears that FBI supplemental investigation into Judge (Justice) Brett Kavanaugh that Senator Feinstein demanded has backfired on her BIG TIME.

Sen. Grassley has fired off another blistering letter to credible Christine Fords lawyers demanding evidence and communications.

    Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) on Tuesday expressed concerns about the growing number of reports and anecdotal testimony that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was "aggressive" when he was drunk in high school and college. "The portrayal of himself as practically a choir boy is very much contradicted by his roommate, for example, in college, as well as people who knew him in high school," Hirono said on CNN's "New Day." "It all goes to how he behaves when hes drunk," she continued. "His very aggressive behavior, belligerent behavior when hes drunk. For someone to say I never did any of...

    The Democrats sacrificed Al Franken in order to shore up their effort to win a Senate seat in Alabama. They knew that Minnesotas governor would appoint another Democrat to replace Franken, so they could net a Senate seat with an upset pickup in Alabama, which is exactly what happened. Many Minnesota Democrats are still unhappy that Franken was forced out of the Senate, not by Republicans but by his own Democratic colleagues. Now it is starting to look as though the Democrats may be throwing Deputy DNC Chairman Keith Ellison overboard in a similar manner. We noted last week that...

    Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, has covered herself in shame these last couple of weeks. Her desire to see Brett Kavanaugh's chances of replacing Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy destroyed by any means necessary has been a sickening display of petty, short-sighted partisan zealotry. But there is one unintentionally humorous moment in the parade of awful that has vomited forth from the senators office: The moment this week when she attacked the GOP for supposedly behaving like ... Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn.? Republicans cannot face the idea that women do not sit around making these things up, Hirono said Monday on...

    Monday on MSNBCs Andrea Mitchell Reports, Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) said the expanded FBI investigation into Supreme Court associate justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh should include whether the Kavanaugh was a very belligerent, aggressive drunk in his youth. Hirono said, As most normal people would think, that whether or not Judge Kavanaugh lied to the committee, which should be a total nonstarter for anybody wanting to go to the Supreme Court, is not even the area of focus. Its so limited, I called it basicallyI think the word farce would not be far off to talk about this so-called investigation. It...

    Sen. Mazie Hirono, who has emerged as one of the most vocal opponents of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, on Sunday didn't directly answer when asked if she was confident Democrats didn't strategically leak Christine Ford's accusations against him just days before a crucial Judiciary Committee vote. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., received a letter from Ford in July outlining her claim that Kavanaugh had attacked her at a house party in the 1980s, and her office immediately recommended Ford retain a prominent liberal lawyer. But, as Sen. Lindsey Graham, D-S.C., and other top Republicans repeatedly noted last week, Feinstein failed...

    The Hawaii senator in the national spotlight for her blunt criticisms of male behavior surrounding the controversial Supreme Court nomination said questions about one of her own male political allies with a checkered domestic past are nothing more than more manufactured moral outrage led by the Republican leadership. Sen. Mazie Hirono grabbed headlines around two weeks ago when she told men in the country to just shut up and step up. Do the right thing for a change in regards to investigating the high courts nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, of sexual assault allegations. During the firestorm, The Washington Free Beacon reported...

    The re-election campaign for Sen. Mazie Hirono apologized Thursday for an email blast that used the sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh as a fundraising pitch. The email, titled, Asking for a minute to explain [Judge Kavanaugh], said the Hawaii Democrat was too busy fighting the Republicans to fundraise and asked for a donation of $3 or more to put toward her re-election. This has to be my focus, Ms. Hirono wrote in the email, CNN reported. What that means is I have limited time to campaign for our re-election or to fundraise making...

    U.S. Sen. Mazie Hirono called Judge Brett Kavanaughs fiery denouncement of Democrats during his statement before the Senate Judiciary Committee pretty off the wall for a nominee being vetted to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court and said it showed that women and victims of sexual assault still arent being treated the way they should be. In his testimony when he railed about the Democrats having a plot to do him in is that the kind of thing that we expect from someone who is supposed to be nonpartisan? To be attacking the Democrats as plotting to do him...
