Senior Dem asked about push to impeach Kavanaugh, says, 'Get real'

Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., was asked Monday about the prospects of Democrats taking up an effort to impeach Brett Kavanaugh from the Supreme Court and responded, “Get real,” according to a report.

Calls to impeach Kavanaugh came after an essay in the New York Times brought to light separate sexual misconduct allegations against him dating back to his time at Yale. The Times reported that the FBI did not investigate the claim.


The paper was forced to run an editor’s note and revised the essay after it was revealed that it left out that the accuser declined to be interviewed and her friends said she doesn’t recall the incident.

Always - its their nature, no one can grab defeat from the jaws of victory like democrats.

They have so much to destroy agent orange and his staff, but their incompetence to do what the republicans did to Hillary is a joke.  They are HORRIBLE at playing the game and messaging.

They need to "get real".... Ain't gonna happen. These folk are ridiculous and deranged. The election of Donald Trump really f'd up the Dem-O-Craps and all swamp dwellers. The senseless attacks on all things Trump has caught the eye of thinking Americans who have said, "Now wait a GD minute..."  TRUMP 2020 KAG!

I Lived With Brett Kavanaugh At Yale. The FBI Never Returned My Call.
William Scheuerman


Last Saturday, I called the FBI to offer information potentially useful to its investigation into Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s alleged sexual misconduct. Like many others, I hoped that the FBI inquiry would shed additional light on the serious but uncorroborated accusations against Kavanaugh. The FBI never returned my call.

I went to college at Yale with Kavanaugh, lived in the same residential halls, and graduated with him in 1987. We did not move in the same circles: I went to a public high school located in a factory town in upstate New York, while he came from the nation’s capital and attended one of its premier prep schools. I have only vague memories of him and his activities.

It seems this 'investigation' is just another partisan game being played to win over a few wavering Senate votes.
However, his alleged misconduct against another of our Yale ’87 classmates, Debbie Ramirez, occurred during the academic year 1983-84 at a party in a “common room” on the first floor of Lawrance Hall, where Kavanaugh and I both lived during our freshman year. The hall was divided into four sections, referred to by the letters of their corresponding entryways. Based on what has been alleged and reported, the incident may have happened near entryway “B.” I lived on the first floor of entryway “A,” and Kavanaugh in entryway “D.”

Though I did not attend the party, I was able to dig up an old yearbook and draw up a list of people I thought the FBI probably should interview. That list consists of residents of entryway “B” and others who might recall the event. Some of those names have surfaced in news reports, but others have not.

I was never able to provide that list to an FBI agent. My first thought was that the FBI probably already had the information I was offering and was on top of things.

I have since learned from other former Lawrance Hall friends and neighbors that many of them similarly offered potentially useful tips to the FBI. The FBI has not bothered getting back in touch with them, either. Ramirez’ lawyer reported that he provided an extensive list of possible witnesses. He claimed that none has been contacted so far. Kavanaugh’s own former roommate similarly asserted that his offer to provide information has been rebuffed. All the evidence at hand suggests that the FBI has not reached out to people it should contact for a thorough investigation.

As a professor of political science for 25 years, I have been happy to recommend some of my best undergraduates to the FBI for employment. A number of them presently work for the FBI. I am sure they are doing valuable work.

But a serious investigation into the allegations against Kavanaugh would require speaking with a broad array of possible witnesses to the Kavanaugh-Ramirez incident. Not an open-ended fishing trip, but conversations with those who attended the party where the event may have transpired, or who lived in dorm rooms in immediate proximity to Lawrance Hall entryway “B.” News about such an incident would have spread fast in our insular little world, and if it occurred there must be others who can speak to it.

The FBI has not conducted that investigation. With the White House and Senate Republicans steering things and aggressively pushing for closure, it is hard to imagine how it could have done so. Most likely, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) will soon be declaring that Kavanaugh has been thoroughly vetted, and that the investigation has confirmed there is no substance to the allegations against him.

In reality, it seems this “investigation” is just another partisan game being played to win over a few wavering Senate votes. The GOP leadership may well succeed in doing so. But who loses? Not just Christine Blasey Ford and Debbie Ramirez, who deserve better for stepping forward and risking so much, but also the American people, who need the FBI to be able to do its job free of hyper-partisan political pressure.

William Scheuerman is a professor of political science at Indiana University. He is also a member of the Yale class of 1987.

In my opinion, there is virtually zero chance of Kavanaugh being removed for sexual improprieties which occurred while he was in high school or college.  :no:

Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) told CNN on Tuesday that "it's deeply disturbing" for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh to have "this many allegations" against him, explaining she had filed an impeachment resolution against him in order to "get to the truth."

"It's deeply disturbing that someone that serves on the highest court in the land could have this many allegations," Pressley said.

The freshman lawmaker criticized as "fundamentally flawed" the FBI investigation and Senate Judiciary Committee hearing last September that examined an allegation of sexual assault against Kavanaugh ahead of his confirmation to the high court.

Pressley, a survivor of sexual assault, called on other members of the Democratic caucus to get behind her impeachment push, including Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), who had urged the Massachusetts representative to "get real," CNN reported.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
