    The top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee was overheard Wednesday discussing Democrats’ plans to investigate and try to impeach Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. New York Democratic Rep. Jerrold Nadler took a series of phone calls while riding the Acela train from New York to Washington, D.C., not knowing that the The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway was also on the train and within earshot. Nadler is set to take over as judiciary chairman as a result of Democrats flipping the House in Tuesday’s midterm elections. Nadler claimed in one call that “there’s a real indication that Kavanaugh committed perjury,” claiming...

    What happened to the multiple allegations of sexual misconduct levied against Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation battle? The claims ranged from Christine Blasey Ford’s remotely plausible if unsubstantiated allegation of a violent attempted rape to Michael Avenatti’s completely outlandish and also unsubstantiated allegation of hosting serial gang rape parties. From September 12 to October 6, the claims absolutely dominated all major media. They ran on the front pages of all major newspapers and filled the hours on cable and network news. Magazine journalists at The New Yorker ran with the claims, despite massive corroboration problems...

PAULA FARIS: There are accusations but there are three women that claim that he did things to them that they didn’t want. One of them is Paula Jones…. Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey. They say that he either exposed himself to them, raped them or groped them. These are three accusations…. BEHAR:...

    The co-founder of the opposition research firm behind the Steele dossier, Glenn Simpson, will invoke his First and Fifth Amendment privileges to avoid testifying before Congress next week, his lawyer has told Congress. According to The Hill, Simpson’s attorney, Joshua Levy, told House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte that Simpson will not appear for a deposition because the congressional investigation “is not designed to discover the truth.” The Virginia Republican subpoenaed Simpson on Sept. 29 after Levy said his client would not appear voluntarily for an interview before members of the House Judiciary and House Oversight & Government Reform...

    New Yorker reporter Jane Mayer suggested in a new interview that she and Ronan Farrow reported on Deborah Ramirez's uncorroborated accusation of misconduct by Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh out of eagerness to show a "pattern" of such behavior. The veteran journalist told Elle her recollections of the Clarence Thomas hearings, the treatment of Anita Hill by the Senate, and the public informed her judgment regarding Kavanaugh. "So having watched this before, I knew that key issues would be whether the judge had a pattern of similar behavior, since that helps establish who is telling the truth when there is...

Near the time shortly after the alleged event occurred Ford never told anyone about what she says had happened. Juanita Broaddrick Has five corroborating witness regarding Bill Clinton's allegedly raping her--This is from Vox.com-- Several friends of Broaddrick's backed up the story.

  • Bill Clinton’s Sexual Assault Allegations Are ‘Different’, Hillary Says

    10/09/2018 11:09:02 PM PDT · by blam · 45 replies
    The numerous allegations of sexual harassment levied against him mean President Trump is a reprehensible monster, according to Hillary Clinton, but when it comes to similar claims made about her husband, former President Bill Clinton, it’s a different story. That’s what Hillary Clinton told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour during an interview Tuesday when Amanpour prodded her about the allegations facing her husband and how she squares supporting him with her criticisms of men like Trump and Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. The difference-maker, according to Clinton, is the fact that the allegations facing her husband were thoroughly investigated by a federal...

    The American Conservative ^ | October 8, 2018 | Peter Van Buren
    There seems to be no strategy other than Trump rage, and despite going nuclear on a man's life, they just can't win. While Democrats continue to refight the 2016 election, Republicans confirmed their second Supreme Court judge over the weekend. And the soiled Brett Kavanaugh confirmation process put Democratic strategy for the 2018 midterms in plain view. The question is: will what hasn’t worked to date do any better for the Dems a month from now? This week’s FBI investigation was never going to turn up much beyond incomplete recollections. Apart from liberal Twitter, all of whom are apparently trauma...

    President Trump said Monday that he expects a lot of Democratic voters to support Republican candidates in the upcoming midterms because of how the party's lawmakers handled sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. "The main base of the Democrats have shifted so far left that we’ll end up being Venezuela. This country would end up being Venezuela. I think a lot of Democrats are going to be voting voting Republican on Nov. 6," Trump told reporters at the White House before departing for a law enforcement event in Florida. The president seized on the specter raised by...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | October 7, 2018 | Byron York
    A lack of contemporaneous evidence was always the greatest weakness of Christine Blasey Ford's allegation that at a high school party in 1982 — 36 years ago, when she was 15 years old — a drunken 17 year-old Brett Kavanaugh forced her onto a bed, tried to undress her, and, when she tried to scream, covered her mouth with his hand. But the second biggest weakness in Ford's story was that it did not appear to fit into any pattern. There were no other allegations that Kavanaugh had done anything similar to anyone else. In the notorious #MeToo cases of...

    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 Trump’s 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 Kavanaugh’s 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...

    Two cnn videos at link. Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), one of the swing votes during now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation vote, went on CNN's "State of the Union" to explain how she decided to vote. Initially, Collins said she was undecided about how she was going to vote, especially after Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's testimony in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee. She initially thought Kavanaugh should withdraw from the proceedings. The lack of corroborating evidence and the fundamental right of being innocent until proven guilty ultimately made Collins vote in favor of Kavanaugh. Instead of accepting Collins' reasoning,...

    The Hill ^ | 10/06/18 09:30 AM EDT | HEATHER R. HIGGINS, OPINION CONTRIBUTOR
    Democrats were cheered by the renewed FBI investigation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh and counted it as a win. Most Republicans were dismayed that the full Senate's vote on Judge Brett Kavanaugh's appointment to the Supreme Court was delayed and saw this as a political misstep. They should change places. First, while the politically attuned understand this is just a delay game by the left, who are on record as willing to do anything to derail this nominee and force the appointment to be made after the November election, swing voters and many women do not. For them, there is no...

Whispers, the Senate Judiciary Committee is now preparing to launch a full investigation into the machinations of Christine Blasey Ford’s 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.

    FULL TITLE: Not All Women: GOP Women Are Furious Over Democrats' Anti-Kavanaugh Smear Campaign; UPDATE: Dem Strategists Worry The Democratic Party is the one that supports women, is for women, and is fighting for their rights. And yet, some of their biggest supporters in business and media are absolute pigs. Look at disgraced former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, former CBS News Executive Les Moonves, and of course, former Hollywood media mogul Harvey Weinstein. There was JFK, Ted Kennedy, and Bill Clinton. All parties above treated women like garbage. They’re sleaze. Yet, it surely helps to keep news of...
