Coffee, Morning Headlines- Kavanaugh, Ford, Trump
Make sure to add extra water to the reservoir of your coffee maker because you are going to need that extra jolt today. There’s plenty of morning headlines to go over, but all eyes are on the Supreme Court.
Dr. Ford and Brett Kavanaugh
We are hours away from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford making her public appearance and testifying about her allegations of sexual assault against Brett Kavanaugh. While there may not be any fireworks inside, there are plenty going on everywhere else.
Dr. Ford has provided four people that could corroborate her story and placed another witness in the room with Mark Judge who does not want to testify, but the Republicans will only listen to Dr. Ford.
The latest accuser, Julie Swetnick alleges she was ganged raped at a party that Kavanaugh attended.
With the emotional maturity of a drunken teenager, President Trump has taken to Twitter to attack and insult Stormy Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti, who is also representing Julie Swetnick, against Kavanaugh.
I take that back. A drunken teenager would be more mature.
With President Trump focused on Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Attorney General Jeff Sessions is off the hook for now, but, what about Rosenstein?
President Trump is supposed to meet Rosenstein today and potentially fire him, but the President has been on the fence with this.
Yesterday, President Trump said in speaking to the media that he would prefer to not have to fire Rosenstein and has even considered postponing their meeting. Word is White House Officials have convinced the President for now that would be a YUGE mistake, but you know the President.
Something goes wrong today at the Ford-Kavanaugh hearings and he’ll fire Rosenstein without thinking twice about it. Hell, he would do it over Twitter and Rosenstein would be the last to know.
It’s going to be a long day and so don’t forget that mid-afternoon espresso.
