Coffee & Morning Headlines- FBI, Kavanaugh, Beto, & Las Vegas
Oh Monday. And it’s not just any Monday because we know it’s going to be an intense week.
But, it is the first day of October which means add some pumpkin spice to your coffee and let’s review today’s morning headlines.
The FBI’s Brett Kavanaugh Investigation
The FBI investigation into allegations of sexual assault by Kavanaugh is only a couple of days old and there is already controversy surrounding it.
At issue- the White House says they are not involved in the investigation and they have not limited the scope of the investigation. However, credible media sources indicate otherwise.
The FBI has yet to contact Michael Avenatti who is representing Julie Swetnick.

I Like Beer
In the meantime, more and more people are coming out speaking against Kavanaugh and his drinking. Charles ‘Chad’ Ludington was classmates with Brett Kavanaugh at Yale and says he’s seen Kavanaugh act belligerent from drinking, stumble, even get aggressive to a point a fight broke out after Kavanaugh threw a beer in that person’s face.
Rachel Mitchell who questioned both Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh at the hearing last week, stated in a memo she would not prosecute Kavanaugh. Two things with that statement.
For one, Mitchell hasn’t had a chance to do a complete line of questioning on Dr. Ford or Kavanaugh. Two, the FBI hasn’t completed their investigation. Besides, at this point it’s not about prosecuting Kavanaugh, it’s about determining whether he’s qualified or not for a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court.
On the Road Again
The red headed stranger performed a free concert for Texas Senator candidate Beto O’Rourke over the weekend and Beto joined him with the classic “On the Road Again.”
NAFTA Is Gone
Last night just before midnight, the United States and Canada agreed to a new trade deal regarding NAFTA and with it comes a new name-the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement. Congress has 60 days to review the deal before Trump can sign it.
Las Vegas Mass Shooting
It was one year that the country’s deadliest mass shooting took place in Las Vegas. Fifty-eight victims were killed. Local radio stations will have a 58 seconds moment of silence.
