At 10 PM in DC yesterday, McConnell filed for cloture on the #KavaNOPE confirmation. According to Senate rules, that gives us till 11 PM Friday to make our voices heard.
There has never been a more important time to call your Senators. Tell them to vote NO. #StopKavanaugh
Dozens of potential witnesses to Kavanaugh’s behavior were ignored by the FBI. Dr. Ford was not interviewed, nor was Kavanaugh himself. Corroborating witnesses for additional accusers were not interviewed.
1/ UPDATED ACTION ITEM TO STOP KAVANAUGH; The ABA has issued a formal notice requesting that the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings be delayed pending a formal FBI investigation. In the meantime, the ABA continues to rate Kavanaugh as "well qualified." As no federal judge has ever
2/ been confirmed without a "well qualified" rating by the ABA, if the ABA were to rescind this rating (as it did once before in 2006) it could further derail Kavanaugh's confirmation. For all of you who hire lawyers or know lawyers please ask them to contact the ABA to urge the
3/ ABA to immediately withdraw Kavanaugh's rating of "well qualified" and institute a process to reconsider whether this rating is still appropriate after the surfacing of extremely negative information about Kavanaugh during his hearing with Dr. Ford. Of course this request
💥💥Please read: best argument is that the The American Bar Association has called for the Senate Judiciary Committee to delay voting until an FBI investigation can be completed. The “appointment is simply too important to rush to a vote.” -ABA
This latest allegation potentially brings the number to **FOUR women** accusing Kavanaugh of SEX CRIMES👉🏼Dr. Ford, Deborah Ramirez (former @Yale student), and a female client of @MichaelAvenatti who has “credible information regarding Judge Kavanaugh and Mark Judge.”
One of the primary reasons women don’t come forward to report sexual harassment or assault is shame. Shame is at the core of the intense emotional wounding women and men experience when they are sexually violated The Power of Caring, “Shame is a natural reaction to being
violated or abused. In fact, abuse, by its very nature, is humiliating and dehumanizing.” This is especially true with sexual violations. The victim feels invaded and defiled, while simultaneously experiencing the indignity of being helpless and at the mercy of another person.
Well, if you're part of the evil fucking Republican Party cabal that has been playing footsie with #Russia and accepting money laundered donations via the @NRA you would want to draw some heat away from your guy. Right?
Two words: Hillary Clinton.
No one has more reliably distracted the media from the real story for Republicans more than @HillaryClinton.
She is literally the goose who lays the golden egg for Republicans.
What are the best ways Republicans have found to get themselves out of the hot seat?
"You have said multiple times that your staff has already reviewed the 42k pages of docs produced at 5:41pm yesterday.The docs weren't available until 6AM this morning. How's it possible that your staff concluded its review before the docs were even loaded? Blumenthal to Grassley
I challenge every member of #TheResistance to spend at least one third of their social media time in the coming days actively fighting the illegitimate nomination of #BrettKavanaugh to #SCOTUS by the Unindicted Co-conspirator In Chief.
Week 3 of 40 Week Siege: total number of protesters today was 203.
While I was counting, I had two LoveLifeCharlotte members continuously stalk around my car. One then moved and stood in front of my car to stare at me as I counted the marchers going by. #notcounseling
Seriously: 2 ultrasound buses, multiple cops and cop cars, traffic cones and barriers, and over 200 protesters who have no reason being at an abortion clinic besides harassment and judgment. No patient should EVER have to deal with this to access healthcare.
