1/ A lie spread by Kremlin/Trump trolls is there are THOUSANDS of sealed indictments which will be simultaneously unsealed & anti-Trump conspirators will be jailed. Sealed indictments are an everyday occurrence. Many federal cases involve indictments that are at one time sealed.
2/ Sadly, this Kremlin disinformation gets amplified repeatedly on Twitter.
3/ Rpt Federal Justice Center (2009) counted all sealed federal cases in 2006, including bankruptcy, criminal, forfeiture, qua tam, warrant actions, NATSEC, indictments, etc. There were 25,000+ sealed fed cases in US, w >15,000 being magistrate cases. (uscourts.gov/sites/default/…)
5/ Here is an article which discusses the increasing trend of courts using the sealed docket option. The data in paragraph 3 is 12 years old. Courts are increasingly using the sealed docket option. washingtonpost.com/news/volokh-co…
6/ There is no uniform practice when it comes to sealing cases, beyond the obvious that grand jury matters are sealed. mcclatchydc.com/news/nation-wo…

Senator Collins is waning on about interest groups against Kavanaugh but IGNORES dark money interest groups in support of Kavanaugh.
Senator Collins references Kavanaugh’s judicial record. She disagrees w notion he will eliminate ACA protections, pointing to his dissent in Holder. She argues that his views on severability is narrow.
She addresses the concern about Kavanaugh protecting the POTUS. She argues that Kavanaugh defers to legislative authority. She argues Clinton got 2 justices confirmed while under Whitewater investigation and 3 Nixon appointees ruled against Nixon ruled against Nixon.

1/ Here is what really bothers me about Kavanaugh: he feels he deserves everything he has and will have because he has earned it. This is a uniquely Calvinist-origin ideology. It is also precisely one of the things which **theologically** distinguishes Catholics from Protestants.
2/ The implications are enormous if one considers the reverse scenario: those to whom life has brought hardship are unworthy, lazy, and have not “earned” their way. Protestant-Calvinist thinking is deeply entrenched in American culture, especially at Yale. christianity.com/church/denomin…
3/ If Kavanaugh adhered to Catholic teaching, he would have by this age internalized that it is mandatory we give a preferential option to the poor. He would practice the Corporal Works of Mercy. He would NOT insist that his success is due to his own merit or worth.

A new article discussing Deripaska, Steele, Waldman, and Assange by @IgnatiusPost requires some serious unpacking. Christopher Steele worked for Deripaska in 2012. (washingtonpost.com/opinions/a-gop…)
Deripaska was interviewed by the FBI in 2015, 2016, and possibly in 2017.
In 2009, while Mueller was FBI Director, the FBI conducted a covert outreach to Deripaska to locate missing CIA contractor Robert Levinson. (I believe this was accomplished through John McCain).

1/ Let’s look behind impious Catholics and their pink flamingos () and Catholic Kellyann Conway self-righteous-types tub shitters (), and dissect the “Kavanaugh Catholic” — with the caveat I, too am a Catholic.
2/ First, we all witnessed Kavanaugh last night make several public pronouncements, to wit:
“I was a virgin.”
“I was busy studying.”
“I was the Captain of my football team.”
“I have never sexually assaulted anyone, ever.”
3/ Kavanaugh had his wife by his side, who vouched for him throughout. He also claimed to have spent his career as a champion for women and women’s issues. Neither Kavanaugh nor his wife (whom he met after high school) addressed the bevy of mounting evidence against him.

What this means is that the Kremlin is weighing in. Drudge Report is a Kremlin conduit. This party just got started.
Here's how the Russians targeted Ohio for the 2016 election (using Drudge Report) dispatch.com/news/20180220/…
As of mid-September 2016, Drudge Report had linked to state Russian media 91x in 2016. It's a Putin arm. mediamatters.org/blog/2016/09/1…

In accordance w the Violence Against Women & Department of Justice Reauthorization Act of 2013 (“VAWA 2013”), officers and/or investigators may not require victims of sexual assault to submit to a polygraph test or other truth-telling devices.
INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF CHIEFS OF POLICE SEXUAL ASSAULT RESPONSE
POLICY AND TRAINING CONTENT GUIDELINES — The Senate Judiciary Committee is doing everything WRONG.
The unwarranted exertion of control by @ChuckGrassley over a putative sexual assault victim violates every single guideline recommendation of the Intl Assoc of Chiefs of Police.
