I don’t suppose any of you are surprised that brave Jeff Flake’s FBI gambit will end in a sham investigation designed to clear Saint Brett:
Perhaps more important, the White House Counsel’s Office – i.e., close Kavanaugh associate Don McGahn – has given the FBI a list of permitted interviews. This list appears to prevent any follow up on a number of leads raised in Thursday’s hearing, such as conflicting accounts of Kavanaugh’s college drinking and the reference to Mark Judge’s high school employment which was referenced as a possible corroboration of Blasey Ford’s testimony.
If we’re being honest, this is really a travesty of a mockery of a sham of a mockery of a travesty of two mockeries of a sham.
We’re nearing our goal in the Balloon Juice Forty House Seats To Freedom Fund. The money is split 40 ways by default, but you can give to just a few candidates to minimize mailing lists. If we don’t take at least one chamber this November, I do fear for our democracy, such as it is.
hen I hit the goal, I’ll take recommendations for more races and do those. By the way, last Friday ActBlue took in 11 million dollars, the most ever in a single day.
