Coffee, Morning Headlines, and Ford vs. Kavanaugh
Good morning. Put one more spoonful of sugar in your coffee and let’s review today’s morning headlines.
Brett Kavanaugh Go or No Go
Republicans are making an effort to give Christine Blasey Ford, Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser a hearing, but not really.
Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley is giving Ford till tomorrow to decide if she will appear at a hearing on Monday. No witnesses, just her which will make it a he/said she/said scenario and we know who wins that one.
Nothing like appealing to your base and not trying to get to the bottom of the facts.
The Fourth Quarter is Here
Former FBI Director ousted by President Trump, James Comey, in an interview said he believes the Robert Mueller investigation is coming to a close based on the plea deal of Paul Manafort.
Maybe, but I think there are few more players left to go after.
It’s All Political
I feel bad for people who get put in a tight spot and not by their own asking. A restaurant in Billings, Montana rejected a rally to be held in the name of Matt Rosendale by Donald Trump, Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle. The restaurant owner said he wanted to remain neutral politically, which is another way of saying we don’t agree with your politics.
I’m only forty-six years old, so it is safe to say that in my life-time, I’ve never seen with such consistency restaurants rejecting politics. And we are not divided as a nation?
Sentencing for Michael Flynn
Originally I had posted that Michael Flynn, former National Security Advisor in President Trump’s administration, would be sentenced on November 28, however, the Judge scheduled the hearing for December 18, 2018.
If I were the Judge, I’d make him report to jail the next day and not allow him to be free over the Christmas and New Year holiday.
Don McGahn is Out
White House Counsel Don McGahn who spoke to Robert Mueller’s team for thirty hours, is out after Kavanaugh’s vote.
President Trump Quote of the Day
Every day we get a doozie from the President. He already said he doesn’t have an attorney general, but now in reference to the Mueller probe:
“I hope to be able to put this up as one of my crowning achievements that I was able to… expose something that is truly a cancer in our country.”
Finish up your coffee, get ready for work, and have a good day.
