Kavanaugh will probably not be confirmed now

Recommended Posts

One of my favorites from yesterday was Kavenaugh saying lie detector tests were not reliable.

Going against a ruling he wrote in 2016 saying "they are an important law enforcement tool".

Translation...they are very useful, as long as it is not applied to me or anything I say or do.

Under oath yesterday, Kavanaugh stated,  "I didn't know her, I never met her, I had no contact with girls from her school" in reference to Dr. Ford. He did not say he could not remember her; he emphatically stated he did not know her.  If the FBI finds evidence that that is a lie, what happens? Lying under oath to be a justice on the Supreme Court should not be ignored in my opinion, especially considering he could have said he did not remember but instead decided he had to embellish it (e.g. a consummate liar.)

Why was this so difficult....

 

Judge Brett Kavanaugh's friend Mark Judge is willing to cooperate with "the FBI or any law enforcement agency," his lawyer said in a statement on Friday.

 

Republican Sen. Jeff Flake on Friday called for a delay on Kavanaugh's confirmation vote with the full Senate to give time for an FBI investigation into accusations against him.

 

"If the FBI or any law enforcement agency requests Mr. Judge's cooperation, he will answer any and all questions posed to him," attorney Barbara Van Gelder said of Judge.

Good. And then we can live with the results and make the best possible decision.

I assume it is not that simple.  FBI agents are skilled investigators. I hope they do not just skip to next question because he says he does not remember. 

As Ford testified, a few weeks after the incident, Judge had an extreme reaction to seeing her publicly.  He evidently remembered the event then. So unless he was involved in routine attempted rapes, it seems that memory would still be there, especially considering the last few weeks.

Not defending him, but he has already said he doesn't remember.  He's a drunk who under went cancer treatment.  True or not, it's the perfect excuse.

Are you in the same district as that Marine that's running for the House as a Dem? The one that supported the teacher's strike? I like that dude.

 

Ojeida?

 

Does he have a chance in hell in that district?

Ojeda.  Yeah that’s my district.  It’s about even odds right now.  He stands a good chance because this district went republican 4 years ago.  It’s traditional democrat territory (blue dog Dems) nothing extremely liberal.

Comet effect:   I suspect the FBI will be very cautious in its findings.  Unless something is concrete, I would think it will be discounted more than normal because the FBI might be afraid of being bullied by the President if the report is adverse to Kavanaugh.  I do not think it would hide irrefutable evidence but I think the overall direction will be to not chase leads that it might normally investigate.
