    Apparently excerpts from Woodward’s forthcoming book (comes out Sept 11) have been released and I’m seeing a bunch of them in my twitter TL. This one stands out at the moment:

    Boom! Lawyered is back. The award-winning legal team of Imani Gandy and Jessica Mason Pieklo is here to make sense of the Senate battle over the release of hundreds of thousands of documents related to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Why have the Democrats threatened to sue, and what might we learn from the mountain of files if they are all released? Find out on Boom! Lawyered.

      Every time I think of that buffoon in the WH I think of the movie A Face In A Crowd and the character Lonesome Rhodes played superbly by the late Andy Griffith. What took Lonesome down was the open mic of him being critical to his dumb listeners. Calling them a bunch of hicks and stupid. A recording of Trump calling his base a bunch of stupid hicks he can depend on to lift him up and who he can steal from is what will bring him down bigly.

      According to Woodward, John Dowd did a practice Mueller interview with Trump. It went disastrously. Dowd told Trump: “Don’t testify. It’s either that or an orange jumpsuit.” He resigned as Trump’s lawyer the following day. Via @PhilipRucker

      When he met with Trump at the WH he was a sickophant for Trump. He would not side with the other kids who wanted something done right then and there. When Trumped ignored the kids Guttenberg was kissing up to Trump and the NRA. In my opinion he shamed his daughter’s memory by believing the GOP would do anything about the gun problem.

      At least, in 2 separate interviews last year…with Meet The Press and Face The Nation, Stephen Miller strategically was flashing those signs too. That woman is named, Zina Bash…..don’t know if she’s related to Dana Bash of #CNN. But she’s employed by the White House….so our tax $ pay her salary.

      This ALL sickens me because NONE of this should be happening…Gorsuch, Kavanhaugh, ACA overturn, DEMS losing in 2016. The self-righteous left would not vote DEM in 2010, DEMs ran from PBO record 2010 & 2014, and Whites women & Young people turned away and voted GOP for no damn reason, Now they want PBO to help them win and are running away from the swamp monster they helped get elected when it might be too late. Only time will tell if we can undo the damage that PBO and Black women have been struggling to prevent.

    It is fascinating watching the Senate go about its business of trying to seat Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court. Norms, rules and traditions have been cast aside. I’m not shocked one bit by what is taking place in the Senate, but more than likely Kavanaugh will be confirmed (and I’ll happily accept a tongue-lashing if he isn’t confirmed). I don’t say this to cause a war of words, but I say this because this is what a Trump Presidency looks like in all its glory. Norms, rules and traditions serve no purpose in our present-day politics other than being a speed bump. From my viewpoint, Kavanaugh isn’t even the first Kavanaugh. In the history of America there have been many Kavanaughs. And we have overcome all of them, America is built to overcome a Kavanaugh, and all the hell he brings with him.

    • September 4, 2018 at 4:57 pm

      -imo not a new/old “speed bump”. Aside from Mueller:
      GOP has all the cards + Putin + power over the election process. w/Kavanaugh they have the power to make mafia-traitor-mobster-Russian-asset/spy president walk away free. They can prevent themselves from being convicted.
      And change the Constitution = Turn us into Little Russia with a Lifetime president.
      Kremlin, Russian conspiracy in Congress and Russian infiltration of the American population are (officially) previously unknown factors.

    Fuck Bob Woodward and his book, fuck him and all the D.C. cocktail parties that this motherfucker attended where all kinds of horrors were discussed as he and his ilk sipped wild turkey. Woodward sat his funky ass up in the Whitehouse and listened to aide after aide tell him that Trump is batshit crazy. And what did Woodward do? He went on any news program that would have him and said absolutely nothing. While America burned Woodward sat in his chalet in his smoking jacket and edited his book.

  54. September 4, 2018 at 7:16 pm

    “Unlike other nominees in the past, it is clear where Brett Kavanaugh’s partisan leanings lie. He was involved with the Republican impeachment of Bill Clinton. He worked in the Bush White House, and he is a darling of the far-right. Trump nominated Kavanaugh because of his views on presidential power, and that he will be a get out of jail free card for this president. What Republicans are trying to hide by not releasing 102,000 pages of documents is that Brett Kavanaugh is out of step with the rest of the country. Kavanaugh isn’t a call it down the middle nominee. He is an extremist who will set progress back by decades on numerous issues if he is confirmed.” (Easley)

    • September 4, 2018 at 7:27 pm

      gop and McConnell hanging on to Kavanaugh for dear life because he has made his allegiances clear. Think of the probable choreography:
      -Very likely МcConnell knew that Russia was going to hack the election and pave the way for Trump.
      -Thus he obstructed Garland illegally for a whole year.
      -Then they got Justice Kennedy out of the way to make way for Kavanaugh.
      Let’s be sure to investigate Leader McConnell and his ties to Russia before anyone is ratified.

        Agree with all you posted. Make Kavanaugh commit to recusing himself of all things involving Trump. I hope the hate in all these folks hearts destroy them.

        September 4, 2018 at 7:45 pm

        Agreed. Paul Ryan, Devin Nunez, and Dana Rohrabacher too. I also want to investigate whether Justice Kennedy sold his seat or was paid off somehow. If Kavanaugh gets confirmed he also needs to be investigated thoroughly if he was paid off.

    Regarding Zina Bash, don’t care that she was born in Mexico or has holocaust survivors in her family, doesn’t mean she couldn’t be a “gang” member. Takes effort to make that “gang” symbol on her arm, is not a casual positioning of hand. I say BS to her nd husband denying it.
