BREAKING NOW: FBI Report On Kavanaugh In – Senate Showdown Happening Now Over Findings

Published

on

The long-awaited FBI report that looked into accusations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh is in. And a Senate showdown is about to take place over the findings. The left will scream that due diligence was not done and the right can finally get on with the confirmation process. It’s high drama on Capitol Hill today.

Senators will get their first peek at the FBI’s background investigation on sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh today. Hanging precipitously over their heads is a series of votes to confirm Kavanaugh. They should take place this weekend.

Christine Blasey Ford’s attorneys are already going over the report word by word hoping to shoot it down and delay the confirmation. But a completed report is almost certain to sway certain senators and cement others ahead of the confirmation vote.

Fox News is reporting that the report shows no evidence corroborating the allegations of sexual assault or misconduct against the nominee. No one should be surprised by that. The FBI has investigated Kavanaugh before this multiple times. It is also being reported that nine people were interviewed by the FBI and there was one sworn statement by another witness.

This goes well beyond the original Senate request for interviews with four people, though the FBI did not dive into Kavanaugh’s drinking habits in high school, one area of contention, because the Senate did not formally request the information.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley tweeted out this morning that the committee has received the “supplemental FBI background file.” Grassley said he has agreed with ranking member Sen. Dianne Feinstein “to alternating EQUAL access for senators to study content from additional background info gathered by non-partisan FBI agents.”

From Fox News:

“The FBI was tasked by Trump last week to look into allegations of sexual misconduct leveled against Kavanaugh by three women. The investigation commenced after Ford — the first woman to come forward — testified before the Senate Judiciary last week about her claims against the federal judge.

“The White House announced early Thursday that it has also received the FBI’s supplemental background investigation into Kavanaugh, and is “fully confident” that President Trump’s pick will eventually be confirmed to the Supreme Court.

“Attorneys for Ford slammed the FBI background investigation for not interviewing the California professor, who has accused Kavanaugh of pinning her to a bed during a house party in Maryland in the early 1980s, attempting to remove her clothes and putting his hand over her mouth when she tried to scream.

“An FBI supplemental background investigation that did not include an interview of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford — nor the witnesses who corroborate her testimony — cannot be called an investigation,” the statement read. “We are profoundly disappointed that after the tremendous sacrifice she made in coming forward, those directing the FBI investigation were not interested in seeking the truth.”

“Ford told the committee that she was “100 percent” certain that Kavanaugh was her attacker. Kavanaugh has vehemently denied the allegations.

“Mark Judge, a friend of Kavanaugh’s who previously said in a letter to the committee [that] he did “not recall the events described by Dr. Ford in her testimony” nor did he see “Brett act in the manner Dr. Ford describes,” was among those interviewed by the FBI.

“The FBI also interviewed Deborah Ramirez, who has accused Kavanaugh of exposing himself to her during a party while they were students at Yale University, according to The Associated Press.”

In the end, Kavanaugh’s confirmation comes down to three moderate Republican senators voting for him: Jeff Flake, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), who is facing a re-election battle, also has said he will make his decision after the FBI probe. I am fairly certain that Collins and Murkowski will keep their word and Manchin will probably follow suit. It’s Flake that worries me. I have never trusted him.

Republicans outnumber Democrats in the Senate 51-49. It will be mostly a party-line vote. If there is a tie, Vice President Mike Pence would be the deciding vote. I will be shocked if Kavanaugh is not confirmed here and if that happens, I hope President Trump turns around and nominates Senator Mike Lee. He’s already vetted, is pro-life and would be a true originalist on the court. Plus, it will totally tick off the left. Win, win.

Meghan McCain Cold-Cocks Trump While Explaining Her Break From ‘The View’

Published

* By

Perhaps Meghan McCain moving to The View from Fox was a better fit than anyone knew at the time. She’s carrying forward her late father’s criticism of President Trump. This time she’s slapping at Trump for not going after Russia and Putin harder.

McCain took advantage of the fact that she is traveling to Britain to accept the Magnitsky award on behalf of her father. Her charges against President Trump are unfounded. He has aggressively fought against both Russia and China while in office. The Daily Caller has more on McCain’s bitter vitriol:

Meghan McCain criticized President Donald Trump on Wednesday for failing to “fight against [Russian President Vladimir] Putin’s global expansion and murderous regime.”

“I will be gone from @TheView tomorrow and Friday. I am going to London to speak @HouseofCommons and then to accept the Magnitsky award on behalf of my father and all who continue the fight against Putin’s tyrannous KGB dictatorship,” the co-host of the ABC talk show tweeted ahead of accepting the award for the late Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain.

“While the Trump’s and their administration continue to be too ignorant or too unscrupulous to fight against Putin’s global expansion and murderous regime -I promise on behalf of my father to spend the rest of my life doing all that I can to help fight and speak out against it,” she added.

McCain’s father passed away in August following a year-long battle with brain cancer. During her father’s eulogy, she appeared to use the opportunity to call out Trump over his “Make America Great” slogan.

“The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again because America was always great,” McCain shared. “We gather here to mourn the passing of American greatness, the real thing, not cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice he gave so willingly, nor the opportunistic appropriation of those who lived lives of comfort and privilege while he suffered and served.”

Daniel Vajdich, senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, and others have shared their beliefs that Trump’s been tougher on Russia than his predecessors.

“When you actually look at the substance of what this administration has done, not the rhetoric but the substance, this administration has been much tougher on Russia than any in the post-Cold War era,” Vajdich explained.

Under Trump’s administration, “some of the toughest sanctions in years” have been brought against Russia’s elite, according to a CNBC report. The president also approved the sale of weapons to Ukraine, something former President Barack Obama declined to do. He has also openly targeted Russia’s allies and strategic operations by ordering missiles to be fired at Syrian military sites.

The London event titled, “The McCain Legacy and the Magnitsky Act” will involve discussions about McCain’s role in passing the 2012 human rights act named after Sergei Magnitsky, who exposed money laundering and corruption in Putin’s regime, according to Newsweek.

The legislation promises to impose sanctions against countries found to have committed human rights abuses.

Melania Fired Them ALL! ‘That Is Not Acceptable Here – I Won’t Allow It!’

Published

...

* By

First lady Melania Trump just sent them all packing! She released multiple people from their positions as she would not allow taxpayers to be ripped off for jobs that were simply not needed – quite contrary to the former first lady, Michelle Obama. While Melania Trump takes on bigger roles and a more active schedule, she has proven herself to spend a lot less than what Obama did. This news comes about as Melania Trump runs one of the lightest East Wings in recent history.

Michelle Obama was reported to have 16 people working under her, being paid a combined $1.24 million. Melania Trump’s staff is only four people who earn a combined $486,700, much less in comparison to Obama. Knowing that Melania Trump refuses to hire 12 extra people to do jobs that can be handled by herself and four others is a wonderful bit of information as it reduces wasteful spending of the taxpayer money.

Not carrying the extra staff for jobs that can be handled by fewer people is a step in the right direction towards reducing the amount of money spent by the administration and shows that Melania cares to be mindful in her position as the first lady. That’s an enjoyable quality for a first lady to have as it spreads a message about being responsible and not overspending.

Fox News reported more on Melania’s smaller staff: “The details are contained in an annual report the White House sends to Congress showing the names, positions and salaries of all its personnel. Both the Obama and Trump administrations acknowledged several additional staffers beyond those listed in the report with the term “first lady” in their titles. But even counting all those employees — 24 for Michelle Obama and nine for the current first lady — Melania Trump’s office is relatively small.

It’s an approach her spokeswoman says is intentional.

“As with all things that she does, she is being very deliberate in her hiring, focusing on quality over quantity,” communications director Stephanie Grisham said in an email. “It is important to her that the team is a good fit for what she wants to accomplish as first lady, and that everyone works well together. She also wants to be mindful and responsible when it comes to taxpayer money.”

While the 2009 annual report listed 16 staffers for Michelle Obama, her press secretary said at the time the staff actually included 24 people. A 2009 FactCheck.org story said Obama’s 24 aides might have broken records.

“That may indeed be the largest of any first lady, but Hillary Clinton, with 19 staffers, and Laura Bush with at least 18 and perhaps more, weren’t far behind,” FactCheck.org said.

Grisham told Fox News this week there are nine people working in the East Wing under Melania Trump, a few more than listed in the annual report.

According to those personnel reports, Melania Trump’s staffers include a chief of staff, a communications director, a deputy chief of staff and a deputy director of advance.

Michelle Obama’s staff included those same positions and a slew of others: additional press aides, a director of policy and projects, a personal aide, a traveling aide and a director of correspondence.

Michelle Obama’s office did not return a request for comment.”

Melania and Donald Trump will surely be criticized for this one way or another. The critics will say that Melania fired people instead of being resourceful and saving money for the White House and their Presidency. While every President and first lady face critics, there has surely been an insufferable and increased amount of criticism has been levied towards the Trump family, with even Barron facing his own fierce barrage of harsh commentary from spiteful people who dislike the Trump family living in the White House.

Donald and Melania work through the criticism, doing things to make many Americans in hopes that they’re constantly doing right by the citizens. They will always face criticism from those who oppose their leadership, even though Trump won the Presidency in a fair election well over one year ago.

What do you think of Melania having a smaller staff? Is she saving money for taxpayers? Is it a smart move for her to be more resourceful in her spending?

Will Michelle Obama respond to Fox News to talk about why she had so many people working under her?
