    Looks like Manafort has been flipped too. He's taken a plea on a couple of Ukraine-related charges, probably incidental to Trump-related stuff, but more interestingly there's a co-operation agreement with Mueller's investigation. It's only another tightening of the ratchet - not anything like a devastating blow - but the way of RICO is slow and methodical.

    I think you're right. Religion is characterised by an unwavering adherence to something, regardless of its lack of evidence and multitude of counter-evidence that exists.

    Strange how only hours after the allegations came to light, the GOP provided a list of 65 women who knew him in high school and said he was of "good character."

    I doubt 65 women I knew in high school even remember who I am, let alone be contactable so quickly.

    Kavanaugh went to an all boy's school, as well. :facepalm:

    Gosh, you think they had this list ready, and surrounded him with all those teenage girls he "coaches" because they knew something like this might come out?

    Let alone how fucking offensive the, "He didn't try to rape all these women, so there's no way he could have tried to rape you either," claim is.

    Looks like flipping is a popular hobby with Trump's pals.
    Shocked as I am, it looks like when you deal with bent bastards that are only interested in number 1, they fuck you over as soon as they feel it's good for their interests.
    Who would have guessed?

    More court problems for Trump. This has been hanging over his head for a while but things are hotting up

    Basically, they're after Trump's financial records with a view to showing he took foreign cash illegally. Given team Trump are fighting the request, it's very likely to be true or they'd just hand over the stuff if it proved innocence.

    Something good Trump has done, but it was Obama's idea.

    Manafort flipping is very big news. And Trump not mentioning Manafort since it happened is also significant. We're in the end game.

    Follow up to this, his local Congressman has taken up the man's case - by introducing a "private bill for immigration relief" to get him permanent residency status in the US.

    Not heard a peep about his case from that celebrated son of Flint, Michigan, Michael Moore, supposedly the champion of the disadvantaged (when it suits him). :mad:

    a: is a long time associate of Trump, who Trump in the past has said could bring him down if Manafort flips Trump Has Told Friends and Aides that Paul Manafort Can Incriminate Him – emptywheel
    b: was at that infamous meeting with representatives of Russian intelligence which every attendant lied about attending until the evidence made their lies obvious, and then lied about the purpose of the meeting, until the evidence made that lie obvoius.
    c: has signed a plea deal stating that he'll co-operate on any information the DoJ wants.
    d: played a big role in helping getting the GOP to soften their line on Russia
    e: picked Pence, and prevented Trump from a last minute meeting with his choice for VP, Christie.
    f: has a pardon proof plea deal.

    Or he's innocent of that but they know there's other stuff in there which is damaging.

    Or, preferably, both.

    Well, this is turning out to be quite a clusterfuck, with the Intercept's shitty misogynist take, as per usual. :rolleyes: (*cough* *Reality Winner* *cough*)

    Now that someone has come forward detailing assault allegations against Kavanagh, it's still not a certainty that he does indeed have a track record as a disgusting sex-pest.

    But even the suggestion of it will make him a more attractive pick in the eyes of Donny And The Trumptards.

    There are many things going on that are being likened to Germany of the 1930s, and this is well deserved to be on that list. Any attempt to deny citizenship to people that are the 'wrong' type is nothing short of Nazism.

    One thing of concern is Trump's idiocy in closing down the Palestinian mission, sending the people home, and now freezing their bank accounts. This move can't possibly do any good but it makes destabilisation of the area even more likely, that meaning the more extreme elements will assume they're right and bombs are back.
    Wonder how much Israel paid Trump for that one, or is it just part on the previous corrupt deal?

    Well, sadly, you are right. The majority of your funky band's fans believe in (white, straight) male entitlement, so there is damn all his victim could say about what happened that would make them think badly of him, or think well of her. Kavanaugh said he "didn't recall" anything happening, which of course doesn't mean he outright denied he attempted rape. He went to an expensive Catholic prep school as well, and it's not like the Catholic Church have a track record of holding abusers accountable. They do have a strong one of blaming victims of sexual assault though.

    Not a bit surprised the woman who disclosed her assault to Senator Feinstein didn't want to be named, nor sadly that it leaked out, and her worst nightmare is coming true now. :(:mad:

    it's all true. Especially the pardon proof deal. If you look at the legal documents related to the co-operation agreement they drop heavy hints of other crimes that they know Manafort has committed, which aren't part of this, which would almost certainly be handed to the relevant State for prosecuting in the advent that federal charges were pardonned. It's also notable that sentencing isn't complete, which again means no pardon. I would imagine that they might complete sentencing after the mid terms,

    Which again points to how important it is for Americans to get out and vote in the mid terms.

    Yeah, she must be pretty brave to have come forward, when parents of victims of Sandy Hook have to move 7 times to get away from far right harassment. If I were her, I'd consider my safety at serious risk. It won't be long now before you'll be seeing memes pop up on social media declaring her a slut and a liar. The usual shit.
