And he IS considering a run in 2020 for Prez...

As a side note.. (not passing judgment) Cory is rumored to be Gay. But has yet to identify himself as such.
If you know about Booker you should know that he was the mayor of Newark. Otherwise, I agree with what you posted.

Blasey Ford spent an eternity deciding whether to accept the Senate's invitation to testify, finally announcing on Tuesday night that she would appear only after a thorough and complete FBI investigation.

Tell me what an "investigation" of this matter involves. Do agents go door to door in Montgomery County, Maryland asking everyone who went to high school in the early 1980s if they remember going to some kind of party?

Second: IT'S NEVER THE VICTIM WHO NEEDS AN INVESTIGATION! She knows what her story is. It's the accused who wants an investigation to know exactly what he's accused of.

The only reason for the professor to insist upon an "investigation" is to delay having to give her story under oath until she knows what can be proved -- and what can be disproved."
Why is that all you trumpsters don't wish for the truth to come out? What is it you are afraid of? Perhaps there is nothing there and nothing to fear, but it is better to investigate for the truth. If I were Kavenaugh, and absolutely positive it did not happen I'd want an investigation to clear my name.
Let's assume it is true. Now explain to me how the behavior of a 17 yr old inebriated adolescent has any bearing on the character of the 52 yr old adult?

What about a 16, 15, 14 yr old? Science has proven that the male brain doesn't exit adolescence until around age 23.

Where would you start with this?

Haven't we been through this with Anita Hill, who also had no evidence whatsoever?

Kavanaugh doesn't need an investigation to clear his name, any more than if she said he was kidnapped by space aliens.
You could begin by interviewing the roughly 275 students who were in both of their grades at Georgetown Prep and Holten Arms. Shouldn't take long. And one of her classmates remembers that she heard rumors that Blasey had been molested at the party in question. Let's not forget that both Judge and Smythe say that they will not testify under oath. Judge initially said he wasn't in the room then that he couldn't remember?? I'm not saying Kavanaugh's guilty. if the FBI doesn't uncover anything to corroborate either one of their versions they"ll say so. Grassley and Hatch have already said she's mistaken/don't believe her. It took the FBI THREE days to investigate Hill's accusation. They came up with no evidence either way. You can't delay this hearing for two weeks?? Really? even if the FBI finds ten witnesses to support her claim, we all know that the Republicans are going to confirm him anyway.

It may or may not work, but Dems are just trying to run out the clock at this point, right?

And it’s not like she didn’t have plenty of opportunities during those nearly four decades. Yet, Ford was silent with Kavanaugh clerked at the Supreme Court, silent when he was a White House attorney, and still silent after Kavanaugh became a U.S. Circuit Judge in 2006 - a process that required a lengthy and controversial Senate confirmation - and all the years thereafter, even as he weighed in on important cases regarding the environment, separation of powers, human rights, and criminal procedure, among others.

Now, on the eve of Senate confirmation, Ford - a California clinical psychology college professor who just happens to be a registered Democrat - decides that justice MUST be served. It’s her “civic responsibility,” don’t you know.

So yeah, color me skeptical.

https://townhall.com/columnists/scot...thing-n2519594
Quite frankly, I am skeptical also but after talking with my wife who was also a victim of sexual assault, I saw some things differently, or gained a little more open mind about it.There is this rush rush thing here which is just as bad as any last second character issues that come to light. Forcing the issue usually backfires over the long haul. If there is no investigation and testimony. Its over and I don't see how this guy is going to impact my life very much at all. Its the sheer weight of the partisanship which is important, and will yield nothing but payback in the future. A never ending cycle because what comes around, goes around. That is why its a must to explore this, investigate it, and seek testimony. Would take all of three days.

So, there are a lot of inconsistencies and concerns I have with the entire story of the alleged assult by Kavanaugh. The largest concern I have, however, and this is very odd, is that she claims to be unable to recall the only 2 details Kavanaugh could use to clear his name – the where and when.

1) If we knew where we could find out who owned the house and whether or not any such event took place there or if they had kids who might’ve had teens over drinking when adults weren’t home.

2) If we knew when we might be able to find out if the Kavanaugh family were on vacation at that time, or he were somewhere else.

Those are the only ways he could clear his name and they’re missing, she doesn’t even remember the year. Hmm.....

where has the full story from her been published? the key for me here would be, did she tell any of her close friends at the time it happened? reporting it to police or whatever, i hope after seeing all the debasing of her from trump supporters can be understandable.

what's interesting to me is the support from the right of kav - what has he done that has made people think he is the right pick, other than he's a "conservative"? or is that all he takes. at least gorsuch has been consistent, mr bart o'kavanaugh here is more of a politician than a judge

Hmm.

'Debra Katz, the attorney representing Kavanaugh’s accuser — Christine Blasey Ford — is vice chair of the Project on Government Oversight, an organization that has been directly funded by Soros’ Open Society Foundation'.

https://m.washingtontimes.com/news/2...-and-links-ge/

The same lawyer that called Trump voters 'miscreants'.

she's clarifying that she did not SEE it happen, but that she believed it happened because people talked about it at school. then realized, just because everyone at school was talking about it doesn't mean it happened.

but yea, believe as you will. good lord though i hope no one ever asks me shit about a future potential supreme court judge i may know. look at this fucking bs you have to deal with.

I may have misused the term 'entire story'. The context of my comment was that based on everything she has reported publicly so far, the two items I mentioned are the most significant in clearing his name.

1) If we knew where we could find out who owned the house and whether or not any such event took place there or if they had kids who might’ve had teens over drinking when adults weren’t home.

2) If we knew when we might be able to find out if the Kavanaugh family were on vacation at that time, or he were somewhere else.

In addition, the moving of the goal post regarding the desire to publicly come before congress to demand the FBI investigate beforehand also allows two more concerns.

1) The FBI doesn't investigate these types of cases. Ever.

2) By getting an investigation completed before speaking to Congress, her attorney's and her will now know exactly what can be proven and what cannot be proven, so she can better structure her story.

If she had no intention of coming forward, why prepare for coming forward by taking a lie detector test in August? If Feinstein wanted to respect her wishes, why release any statement at all? If she were going to “betray” the promise of anonymity, why not do it earlier?

Nothing else stuck, Kavanaugh withstood everything Democrats threw at him during his hearing. They were desperate and about to lose. And Democrats can’t lose when it comes to the Supreme Court – the courts are how they advance their agenda these days.

They rarely pass legislation, they sue and have the courts declare parts of their agenda to be so, to be “rights.” If they lose the courts they have to try to convince voters, to sell their unpopular ideas AND, worst of all, make sure they’re actually constitutional. That terrifies them.
