Mitch McConnell is currently complaining about:

✔️ Dr. Ford
✔️ Senate Dems
✔️ Senator Feinstein
✔️ The resistance

And is also trying to claim Senate Dems betrayed Dr. Ford, by leaking to the press.

Call your Senators to say NO to Kavanaugh. 202-224-3121.
McConnell is currently praising the integrity of Chuck Grassley, and letting loose on Senate Democrats.

Is also criticizing the veracity of Dr. Ford's story, and trying to paint her as unreasonable for having accommodation requests.
McConnell: "But the smear campaign didn't just stop there!"

McConnell is now trying to smear @RonanFarrow @JaneMayerNYer's New Yorker story about Deborah Rodriguez. Claiming the allegation is so thin, NYT refused to run the Rodriguez story.

A few observations on the politics of #Kavanaugh

1) Democrats have driven the argument over his confirmation since day 1 of the hearings when they flagrantly interrupted committee proceedings and paid no price.
2) Dr. Ford's allegations seriously jeopardize Kavanaugh's nomination. But Ramirez's allegation, published a day after Ford 'committed' to Thursday's hearing, has had the effect of rallying conservative grassroots behind Kavanaugh.
3) Republicans now find themselves in the position of having to proceed with confirmation process—including an up-or-down vote after Thursday—or risk the collapse of grassroots support weeks before midterm elections.

Profiles in @GOP misogyny, ‘18 Senate candidates

#Kavanaugh allegations are:

Dean Heller(NV): a hiccup
Kevin Cramer(ND): absurd because they “never went anywhere”
Kevin Hawley(MO): an ambush
Blackburn(TN): delay tactic
Patrick Morrisey(WV): no reason to delay vote
Since Doug Jones’s win we only need a net of 2 seats to #TakeItBack in the senate!

Prediction: #Kavanaugh will withdraw his nomination tomorrow, claiming he was smeared and is completely innocent, but must withdraw out of consideration for his family yada yada yada. 1/4
Of course he has denied everything so far: that is what he must say as long as his nomination stands. But what he is saying privately to the WH and Rs in Congress must be quite different. 2/4
Rs probably suspected from the outset that the nomination was vulnerable for the reasons that have become crystal clear to us in the last several days, but I doubt they realized just how BAD it was. 3/4

And #Kavanaugh has a new accuser. Amazingly enough, JUST IN TIME for the Democrats. Whew, that was close, they snuck her in under the wire. Sounds like another hatched job. Read this whole thread for a break down of the story.

newyorker.com/news/news-desk…
"Credible allegation." They keep using that phrase. If an allegation is actually credible, they don't have to keep repeating it. Kind of like "religion of peace."

Also, this is from the woman who recently said that men just need to shut up.
They failed to mention "registered Democrat."

BREAKING #KAVANAUGH
A new allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh surfaces, this time from his years at Yale. The latest from @ronanfarrow and @JaneMayerNYer: newyorker.com/news/news-desk…
"Senior Republican staffers also learned of the allegation last week and, in conversations with The NYer, expressed concern about its potential impact on Kavanaugh’s nomination. Soon after, Senate Republicans issued renewed calls to accelerate the timing of a committee vote"
"she remembers Kavanaugh had exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party, thrust his penis in her face, and caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away. "

🚨 @SenFeinstein u wont release unredacted version of #ChristineBlaseyFord letter cause she named best friend, Leland Ingham Keyser. @washingtonpost had her name too & chose to leave her out of 1st report. Keyser wouldnt corroborate Fords story. HOLY SHIT! OH MY GOD
#Defamation
YOU ALL KNEW THIS ENTIRE TIME!
Therapists notes dispute Ford too. Four guys. Two guys. 3 guys AND A GIRL. NO CORRABORATING EVIDENCE! You KNEW theres no there there! You coordinated this whole thing to SMEAR KAVANAUGH! This is SO wrong! Omg. How could you do this to a family? WTF

🚨I had a dream that Merrick Garland groped me. It must be from a repressed memory. I have no other details, no witnesses & no corraborating evidence but I'm positive it actually occurred. I MUST be believed. If you ask to hear from me, you're a bully & trying to silence me.
🤔Maybe Chrissy had a crush on Kavanaugh in high school. Had fantasies of him touching her boobies. Maybe it was all a dream. Maybe he never wanted anything to do w/ her, never went to a party she was at (or threw herself). Maybe Chrissy was so hurt she made him into a bad guy.
Dont ask me to fly anywhere... I dont go on airplanes. I only interned at University of Hawaii, I canoed there. When I heard Kavanaugh was nominated I was gonna move to New Zealand. Ya know, just the furthest fucking place to fly... 13.5 hour flight. That never crossed my mind🙄

.@judicialnetwork is picking #SCOTUS for us, first #Gorsuch now #Kavanaugh. @ZeldaShagnasty shows here, the domain confirmkavanaugh(.)com was registered in 2/17. 3 similar sites (.net, .info and confirmkavanaughnow(.)com) in 7/18, all three on the same day. #osint #infosec
That date was 7/10/2018. Given that all domains were registered through GoDaddy’s anonymous registration service, WHOIS doesn’t tell us much. But the site is copywritten to @judicialnetwork, so we know they’re involved. Let’s take a look at the page source for the .com site:
Notice something? A template created for a Gorsuch themed site is being used for #Kavanaugh. Was there a confirmgorsuch(.)com too? Blank page currently, but sure enough one was setup 12/19/2016. And taken down 7/9/2018. Well, when did confirmkavanaugh(.)com go live?

Like former McCain adviser @SteveSchmidtSES, I have a hard time believing Ed Whelan when he says he didn’t coordinate his crackpot “doppelganger” theory with #Kavanaugh, the @WhiteHouse, and @SenateGOP.
Whelan has long been at the center of the @FedSoc’s secretive & powerful inner circle. He’s close friends with #Kavanaugh & has been scheming with Leonard Leo about how to salvage this fast-sinking nomination.
washingtonpost.com/politics/kavan…
They’ve all been pushing the insulting theory that Dr. Ford was just “mixed up,” and Whelan somehow got Ford’s name before it was ever published. washingtonpost.com/news/opinions/…

The worst part of these white and Latina GOP women saying these things is NOT ONCE did they offer concern about any victim of sexual assault.

The woman in the turtleneck, Lourdes, said she thought Kavanaugh had likely dumped Ford and she was getting back at him.

Awful.
Also, these aren't all just ladies off the street being asked these questions by @CNN. They are GOP operatives.

So this woman, Lourdes, who is floating the idea that Ford is a vengeful sociopath is actually working for the Republican Party.

“Tell me what boy hasn’t done this in high school.”

Boys that were not raised by Republican women like these to think rape is ever normal or acceptable. This is abhorrent.
.@djrothkopf thread nails why the Kavanaugh episode is so disturbing - and what it reveals about the nihilism of the modern Republican Party. #EndAC
As several people (@martindvassolo, @realshawnbrandt, @AdamWeinstein) have documented, these aren't random "Republican voters," as @CNN would have you believe, but well-connected GOP candidates, operatives & activists.

Salena Zito-level misrepresentation.

Negotiations for a while seemed to be productive and hopeful. Then the WH, #Kavanaugh, McConnell, the Federalist Society et al. freaked b/c they were losing control and things were going south. (My take)

So they’ve made the decision to stiff Ford. 1/2 tinyurl.com/ycto73t3
They wouldn’t even make allowance for the fact that Ford had to travel for an interview with the FBI about death threats she had received.

This is just white male privilege and a GOP power play.

These people HAVE to go.

Vote like your life depends on it on November 6. 2/2

1/ I’ve been pondering why (on earth) #DrChristineBlaseyFord would prefer to be asked questions directly from senators.

I now think the answer is quite straightforward, self-aware & brilliant.
2/ The only thing that can be shown in a hearing without an investigation is credibility.

If an outside party, male or female, lawyer or staffer, leads the questioning—

@GOP senators can (& likely would) say that their questions were not asked or answered appropriately.
3/ A 3rd-party allows Senators to discredit #DrBlasey indirectly

It would give them a free pass to dismiss her testimony

While claiming that they did the right
thing by allowing (😤) her to speak to a 3rd party instead

BREAKING: Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein denies a NYT report that he suggested last year he secretly record Trump to expose chaos in the administration. According to the Times Rosenstein also floated the idea of trying to remove Trump through the 25th Amendment. apnews.com/e84a4acdb42641…
Rod Rosenstein should know better than to joke about something like the 25th Amendment. Especially in the era of Trump.
McCabe memos say Rosenstein considered secretly recording Trump
