Brett Kavanaugh's opening statement makes him seem overtly political. Not a good look for a Judge hoping to be a Supreme Court Justice. #KavanaughHearings
HOLY SHIT!!! Did Brett Kavanaugh really just say this is a political hit by the Clintons?!! Really?! The GOP playbook is so predictable, and getting old, when in doubt blame the email lady. #KavanaughHearings
I cant even pay attention to the rest of Brett Kavanaugh's opening statement I am still dumbfounded that Kavanaugh really just said that this is a plot by the Clintons. How, why, what? How could HRC have orchestrated this? Its just utterly ridiculous. #KavanaughHearings
Hillary Clinton did not frame Brett Kavanaugh, but Brett Kavanaugh was part of an investigation that set a perjury trap for Bill Clinton. Not that it will be corrected on the record. #KavanaughHearings
Brett, we dont care about your calendars that you kept from high school. I dont imagine "attempt to rape Christine Blasey at party" would be on there. #KavanaughHearings
Why is the accused crying more than the accuser? #KavanaughHearings
Free Legal Advice: A childhood calendar is NOT a definitive alibi to attempted rape. #KavanaughHearings
Lindsey Graham is attacking Dianne Feinstein alleging she wants to hold the seat open, **cough**Merrick*cough*Garland*cough**. #KavanaughHeadings
Lindsey Graham just blew a gasket and again compared Kavanaugh to Bill Cosby, saying Brett Kavanaugh isnt Bill Cosby. BILL COSBY is not the standard for the Supreme Court!!! #KavanaughHeadings
A rebuttal to some of Brett Kavanaugh's explanation of his yearbook:

"Boofing" is NOT "flatulence" it is rectally ingesting drugs or alcohol.

"Devils Triangle" is NOT a drinking game it is a sex act involving two men and a woman.

#KavanaughHearings #KavanaughHearing
Despite Grassley's efforts, proving that Dianne Feinstein may have played politics with this issue does nothing to disprove it. #KavanaghHearings
If Brett Kavanaugh refers to his calendars one more time I'm going to scream. NO ONE CARES about that your calendar didnt have "attempted rape" on it! #KavanaghHearings
If Brett Kavanaugh was a woman every news headline right now would be something along the lines of:

"Nominee Gets Teary Eyed and Hysterical in Committee Hearing"

#KavanaughHearings #Kavanaugh
I would only recommend The Calendar Alibi defense if you are a white Christian male. #KavanaughHearings #Kavanaugh
Its notable that once Brett #Kavanaugh started to testify Rachel Mitchell, an experienced sex crimes prosecutor, suddenly took a back seat in the GOPs questioning. Perhaps Republican Senators thought she was too competant and too impartial?

#KavanaughHearings #KavanaughFord
Anyone spewing the line "I believe something horrible happened to Dr Ford but it wasnt Brett Kavanaugh" should get their heads checked. Literally, the ONLY thing Dr Ford said she was 100% sure about is that it WAS #Kavanaugh.

#KavanaughHearings #IBelieveChristineBlaseyFord
Brett Kavanaugh lied about relativly trivial sexual matters. That is EXACTLY what Brett Kavanaugh helped Ken Starr and Congressional Republicans impeach Bill Clinton for.
It was 36 years ago, SHE must be confused and have misremembered.

It was 36 years ago, HE said he didnt do it and has no memory of that.
BREAKING: The American Bar Association is calling on the Senate Judiciary Committee to halt the consideration of Brett Kavanaugh until an FBI investigation is completed. #KavanaughHearings…
This is important and could be legally significant.

If you believe Brett Kavanaugh his calendars were the end all be all of his alibi. I guess the Calendar Alabi didnt work out as well as he had hoped.
Well, he didnt call her a bitch to her face, so yeah.
Straight white Christian men have done a really good job of advocating for themselves.

Women should stop being surprised straight white men arent advocating for them and endeavor to do it themselves.

This is about power and straight white Christian men dont want to give it up
A sexual assault victim speaking to Jeff Flake this morning: "You're telling women that they don't matter, they should just stay quiet because if they tell you what happened to them you are going to ignore them." #KavanaughHearings
“I’m a single white male from South Carolina and I am told that I should shut up.”

— Lindsey Graham

Poor Lindsey, life is so hard for him. (Also, I doubt he could if he tried)
"Indelible in the hippocampus is the laughter."

- Dr. Ford (9.27.18)
Even if that isnt the case and Brett Kavanaugh didnt assualt anyone, he still blatantly lied to the Committee abt trivial yearbook sexual innuendos. Some of these same Senators impeached Bill Clinton, with #Kavanaugh's help, for this very crime, *perjury*.
I hope Jeff Flake feels as miserable as he looks for a very long time. #Kavanaugh #KavanaughHearings
.@SenWhitehouse: "This will be a disaster for the court."
Listening to Republican Senators lamenting Dr Ford’s name being “dragged through the mud” is unbelievably ridiculous, as they were the ones pulling the rope with one hand, running as hard as they could, and slinging as much mud as they could with the other. #KavanaughHearings
Ted Cruz is arguing it makes sense for Mark Judge not to testify becuase he is accused of multiple agregus felonies. #KavanaughHearings #Kavanaugh
Ted Cruz is falsely claiming the witnesses mentioned by Dr Ford refused her claims when all they said was they didnt remember anything, not that nothing happened. #Kavanaugh #KavanaughHearings
The Calendar Alibi makes no sense. What teen of legal drinking age makes sure to be home early on weeknights in the summer? Moreover, the calendar literally contains an event with 2 of the witnesses on a Friday night during the dates the assault is alleged to have taken place.
Ted Cruz is so evidently bitter that there wont be a Republican President and Republican Senate Majority Leader who dont implicitly hate his guts before he is considered to old to be nominated to the Supreme Court.
Republicans berating Democrats for allegedly wanting to delay until after the election and hold the seat open until after 2020 only enhances my growing incredulity. Republicans held Scalia's seat open 422 days, a year before the end of Obama's term. 🤬 See you in November.
Chuck Grassley can be heard in the background complaining this is taking too long and that they are never going to vote. Now he is asking Republicans to keep their remarks short. Republicans know this is a optics disaster for them regardless if they get #Kavanaugh confirmed.
Graham: "Ford has a problem and destroying Judge Kavanaugh’s life won’t fix her problem"
All eyes now turn to Collins and Murkowski. #Kavanaugh

But does that really mean anything? She is all talk.
I know it, so do all of the Republican Senators, not that you would know it from their pretextual statements.
The American Bar Association and now the Dean of Yale Law School are both calling for a delay. Few things are more prestigious for law schools than having an alumni on the Supreme Court. This is a big deal, I don’t know that it’s ever happened before

Oh, if something happened 40 years ago it doesnt count?! Quickly, someone call PA and tell them to let Bill Cosby and all of those priests out of prison. False alarm, apparently it doesnt count!
BREAKING: Sen. Jeff Flake: "I think it would be proper to delay the floor vote for up to but not more than one week in order to let the FBI continue to do an investigation, limited in scope, of the current allegations." #Kavanaugh #KavanaughHearings
Trump just blew a gasket. Prepare for tweets about "Flakey"
Dianne Feinstein challanges Chuck Grassley to explainer what he is committed too after he abruptly ends the #KavanaughHearings after the Committee voted to move the vote to the floor.
Brett Kavanaugh's nomination is being held together with (allegedly) rapey scotch tape at this point.
BREAKING: #KavanaughVote: Jeff Flake votes to advance nominee, but calls for FBI investigation, essentially forcing McConnell to ask Trump to direct the FBI to investigate if there is any hope of confirming Brett Kavanaugh #KavanaughHearings #Kavanaugh
A one week delay means next week is likely to be very similar to this week. 😩
BREAKING: Brett Kavanaugh friend Mark Judge says he'll cooperate with any law enforcement agency that investigates 'confidentially.' (per @AP) #KavanaughHearings #Kavanaugh
Jeff Flake is the kid who got to the party and called his parents once he realized that there were no adults home. Someone is getting a swerlie on Monday.
Do you think they can wait for Monday? Im so OVER this week.
BREAKING: Senate Judiciary Committee formally requests White House to instruct FBI to do supplemental background check on Brett Kavanaugh, to end no longer than 1 week from today. #KavanaughHearings #Kavanaugh
But lets be real, not that much credit. You dont get and A+ for doing the bare minimum to be a decent human being.
BREAKING: Trump orders ‘supplemental’ FBI investigation into Brett Kavanaugh. #KavanaughVote #KavanaughHearings #Kavanaugh…
Will Republicans confirm Brett Kavanaugh regardless of the results of the FBI investigation? #Kavanaugh #KavanaghHearings

"If you don't like me working with President Trump to make the world a better place, I don't give a shit."

Lindsey Graham has done gone lost his mind. History will not be kind to him.
"I have argued to you that when you found that a judge was a perjurer, you couldn’t in good conscience send him back in a courtroom because everybody that came in that courtroom thereafter would have a real serious doubt."
@LindseyGrahamSC (January 1999)
Lindsey Graham (2018): "He's not Bill Cosby, he's had power over women in the workplace...If you went to a party once where people are being drugged and gang-raped, you wouldn't go to the next nine."

The classic "he's not Bill Cosby" defense. #Kavanaugh

Covertly concentrating groups of children in remote desert camps at night? Nothing about the child detention crisis is over or resolved.
Irreparable damage has been done to immigrant children at the hands of our government. It's been 66 days since the Trump admin failed to adhere to a court's deadline to reunite children and parents. Many of these kids/parents will NEVER be reunited.
"In shelters from Kansas to NY, hundreds of migrant children have been roused in the middle of the night in recent weeks and loaded onto buses with backpacks and snacks for a cross-country journey to their new home: a barren tent West Texas"…

Trump: "If we brought George Washington here...the Democrats would vote against him...and he may have had a bad past, who knows."

This guy is an idiot.
"George Washington would be voted against 100 percent by Schumer and the con men."

Trump: "'Let me call the Russians for help'. . . does anyone really believe that?"

YES because you asked for help on live TV!

BREAKING: Rod Rosenstein, who had been overseeing Russia probe, has offered to resign.
Rod Rosenstein is likely going to resign or be fired today. Either way does it make a difference? We are at the precipice.

BREAKING: Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein denies a NYT report that he suggested last year he secretly record Trump to expose chaos in the administration. According to the Times Rosenstein also floated the idea of trying to remove Trump through the 25th Amendment.…
Rod Rosenstein should know better than to joke about something like the 25th Amendment. Especially in the era of Trump.
McCabe memos say Rosenstein considered secretly recording Trump

So Dr Ford is "confused" and "mixed up" about what happened 35 years ago but Brett Kavanaugh's memory of the same incident from 35 years ago is perfect and crystal clear?
When men, decades later, report abuse by priests they are believed, increasingly there are state investigations despite the statute of limitations having lapsed decades before they go public.

Whereas, Women who come forward decades later are "confused" or "lying."

Got it.
Sen Kirsten Gillibrand (NY): "Who is not asking the FBI to investigate these claims? The White House. Judge Kavanaugh has not asked to have the FBI to review these claims. Is that the reaction of an innocent person? It is not." #KavanaughAccuser #Kavanaugh
