Sen Whitehouse said the Dems will investigate the allegations

against Kavanaugh when they hold the gavel again. I know it takes 2/3 of the Senate to impeach him, but if the Dems investigate it can they also have the FBI investigate it later AND if he is found guilty, can a sitting justice be arrested and charged with a crime instead of impeaching him?

If ROSENSTEIN is fired PROTESTS in 900+ cities...RESIST!

No One Is Above The Law has been organized since last Dec. and 1/2 million people have signed up already to protest the fake prez within hours of an announcement. Check the link and see if an event is near you.

Donald Trump could be preparing to put himself above the law. We won’t allow it.

Trump will create a constitutional crisis if he fires special counsel Robert Mueller or Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversees Mueller, or attempts to compromise the investigation by other means. (See The Plan for details.)

Our response in the hours following a potential power grab will dictate what happens next—whether Congress will stand up to Trump or allow him to move our democracy toward authoritarianism.

That's why we're preparing to hold emergency "Nobody Is Above the Law" rallies around the country, in the event they are needed—900+ of them and counting, in every state, with 400,000 RSVPs to date!
Join us.

When Murphy Brown returns there will be a #metoo episode too.


A century and a millennium have turned and 20 years have passed since television journalist Murphy Brown beat breast cancer in what everyone thought, after 10 full seasons, was the show’s finale. Obviously, everyone is older, but while the new show will explore, and exploit, the notion of, er, veteran journalists returning to a profession changed by social media and the notions of “fake news,” no one is any slower or that much different.

Episode 251/4 is called “#MurphyToo,” and as the title and the character to whom it refers imply, the main story deals with sexual harassment and comeuppance.
Less than 48 hours later, allegations of sexual harassment will have driven Les Moonves from his long-held perch at CBS. Which, in just a few weeks, will be airing “#MurphyToo.”
"We deal with how the press is perceived these days,” English said. “When we left them, Woodward and Bernstein were heroes; that’s where Murphy came from. And to find yourself in this time of ‘enemy of the people’ and ‘fake news,’ that’s really rich for us. We have an episode about what happens in the White House press briefing room; we did an episode last week about a Steve Bannon-type character — do you put someone like that on your show or do you refuse to give him a voice?"

Sen Whitehouse said on CNN that Dems can look into opening an investigation

about Kavanaugh and the lies he has told so far to the Senate Judic. Comm. He said that when Dems are eventually in control they will add this to their list of crimes to investigate. Of course that could be many years from now but they will NOT forget it he said. Rachel Maddow just mentioned this on her show too.

Dems are looking into filing charges against Kavanaugh

in Maryland since there is no statute of limitations there. Howard Fineman just said this on Hardball.

Michael Moore's new film opens Sept 21st!

Dems are running a lot of anti Kavanaugh ads all over the country

even against GOP reps running in the midterms in local races and state races. They are trying to stir up the women voters especially. I am glad about this since all I have seen are ads on MSNBC that are of women saying how wonderful Kavanaugh is. I was almost ready to complain since I find it offensive but freedom of speech is what it is.

Is tRump going to stop supporting Kavanaugh?


Gabriel Sherman, Vanity Fair:
Two sources told me the White House has heard rumors that Ford’s account will be verified by women who say she told it to them contemporaneously. People worry, without apparent evidence, of another Ronan Farrow bomb dropping. One source says Ivanka Trump has told her father to “cut bait” and drop Kavanaugh.

Another reason Trump hasn’t gone to the mat for Kavanaugh is that he’s said to be suspicious of Kavanaugh’s establishment pedigree. “‘He’s a Bush guy, why would I put myself out there defending him?’” Trump told people, according to a former White House official briefed on the conversations. Trump also has expressed frustration with White House counsel Don McGahn, who aggressively lobbied for him to choose Kavanaugh, a source said. “Trump wants this guy on the court, but Trump knows there are five other people he could put on the court if this falls apart,” a former official said.

Even before the Kavanaugh crisis, Trump has been worried about Republicans’ declining fortunes, and he’s been finding ways to shift the blame. Trump told a friend in the Oval Office last week that it would be Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan’s fault if Republicans lost the House and the Senate, according to a person familiar with the conversation. “This is the election about Ryan and McConnell—it’s about those guys,” Trump said. Trump referred to his 2020 campaign as “the real election.” “It’s pure Trump. He has to come up with a way he’s not responsible if Republicans lose,” a former West Wing staffer said.

MSNBC Wash Post reporter is saying that this is very possible from what he has seen and heard.
