The surprise documentary #Justicedoc premiered at ⁦@sundancefest⁩ on #BrettKavanaugh by #DougLimam, I’d like to point something out. Kavanaugh was partying at Matt Schlapp’s home on Dec 9 with Erik Prince. On Dec 10 Prince, Bannon,Stone were at GOP gala!
Also at the GOP gala. George Santos, 3 actual Nazis from Austria, Marjorie Taylor Greene who said if she and Bannon were in charge Jan 6 they would have won because they would be armed. I spent 8 hours there. They WERE.
Sorry Doug Liman is the director

1/7 Weldenkend Nederland over de benoemingsprocedure van #KetanjiBrownJackson, een Democratische kandidaat die niet naar voren is geschoven vanwege haar verdiensten, maar haar gender en huidskleur. Een vrouw die tijdens de hearing niet in staat is het begrip vrouw te definiëren.
2/7 Han Ten Broeke zat tijdens de hearing van #BrettKavanaugh in NY. En blijkt de hearing destijds of niet te hebben bekeken of over een haperend geheugen te beschikken.

1/Today my firm filed new #FOIA lawsuit for frm Gov #JimGuyTucker to secure release of records tied to his prosecution as part of infamous Clinton “Whitewater” investigation led by then-Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr back in 1990s.

Total blast from past!
2/The records sought will bring greater public understanding regarding how Office of Independent Counsel pursued criminal charges against Gov Tucker based on provision in Internal Revenue Code that had actually been repealed in December 1986.
3/IRS itself had internally concluded provision was not applicable. These records will corroborate that OIC’s reliance upon repealed IRS provision was done, at least in part, to improperly pressure Gov Tucker into cooperating with Starr’s probe into #PresidentClinton.

Isn’t it a bit odd that these liberal news reports about impeachment, just like what happened during #BrettKavanaugh - which prove to be unreliable - always come out right before we are set to vote?
I have found it wise to realize the source of these stories is the liberal media with an agenda.
If you want a delay, it will be a long one with many, many witnesses.

News Analysis🔎The @EpochTimes has so far counted 85 “Unusual” instances for the case of Lt. @GenFlynn, which has been filled with contradictions, falsehoods, apparent blunders, extraordinary moves, and strange coincidences. (Thread👇)…
The case of @GenFlynn is inevitably heading toward its conclusion.

While District Judge Emmet Sullivan is trying to keep it going, there’s only so much he can do since there’s nobody left to prosecute the case after the #DOJ dropped it last month.…
In the latest developments, the #WashingtonDC appeals court set a hearing in the case on June 12, while the #DOJ’s solicitor general himself, as well as 5 of his deputies, urged the court to order the lower-court judge to accept the case dismissal.

PROTIP: when an associate justice of the United States Supreme Court warns the reader 11 pages into a 17-page decision that your arguments are "not easy to unpack," you can stop reading and call your client to share the bad news
(yes, even when it is *this* associate justice of the United States Supreme Court)
That said, most #immigrationlaw arguments worth making aren't "easy to unpack," and *that's* why we get paid the big--uh, moving on

I’ve waited till I was sure of who I would #endorse for President. I just heard the last piece of input I need.

With joy and conviction, I ENDORSE @ewarren FOR PRESIDENT! #ImWithHer

Here’s why. 1/…
I remember the first time I heard @ewarren speak. She was running for Senate for first time. She waged fight that gained national attention bc, not only was she sharp as a tack, but she made us believe another way of living together was possible! 2/ #ElizabethWarren2020
As soon as @ewarren entered the Senate she was tasked to lead the effort to protect consumers from the predatory lending that led to the housing crisis! Black families were the hardest hit by economic corruption! Warren #shutitdown! #ElizabethWarren2020 3/…

Remarkable outcome as #CurtisFlowers is freed on bail after being tried six times for murder. Thanks to incredible reporting by @InTheDarkAPM, we learned of the many questions around the evidence, and the apparently race-based jury selection that occurred
@InTheDarkAPM That podcast was some of the best reporting I've read or heard in recent years. Talk about impact journalism. @InTheDarkAPM
@InTheDarkAPM When the issues of the jury's racial composition reached SCOTUS, #BrettKavanaugh wrote a majority opinion stating that the Mississippi DA who prosecuted the case violated Flowers's constitutional rights. That was in June.

1/ New allegations have been made against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. In addition, multiple witnesses have indicated that last year's investigations regarding Justice Kavanaugh's alleged behavior were grossly incomplete.
2/ What follows is a partial nonverbal, verbal, and paralanguage analysis of a portion of Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing.

Thomas has been the most far-right extremist activist justice since his appointment by George H.W. Bush TWENTY EIGHT YEARS AGO to replace the brilliant jurist #ThurgoodMarshall. There is no one more extreme to replace him, so Trump is likely happy Thomas has no intent to leave.
Everyone who voted Trump or Trump proxy voted to put extremist justices like #ClarenceThomas, #NeilGorsuch and #BrettKavanaugh on the #SCOTUS and those of us who voted against fascism now face Trump for the next 30yrs, just as we have faced Thomas for 28 and likely 10 more.
There is no keener determinant of how elections have consequences than in the appointment of Supreme Court justices and federal judges. America will be living with the Trump courts for decades. D-E-C-A-D-E-S.

I have always said that there is the distinct probability that #Mueller would turn up nought, because to find anything would start a cascade of discovery that would cause systemic failure on a global scale.

I stand by that theory.

Or we have been hoodwinked after all.

There is always the sad chance that Mueller never intended to find much, and this whole push and pull between Trump and Mueller has been nothing but staged theatrics.

Fifteen years ago this charge would have sounded ridiculous and conspiratorial, but today it seems mundane.

I mean after 2016 and what was done to Hillary Clinton, after Comey, or learning that Kennedy made a backroom deal with Trump that gave his seat to #BrettKavanaugh, or how @SenatorCollins threw her legacy under the bus to give Kavanaugh the seat, or, or, or...

I want to share a brief story of a person, now 53 (same age as Justice #Kavanaugh) who was convicted of a sex crime at age 14 for conduct not dissimilar to that of which Kavanaugh is accused.
They have to register as a sex offender for life. They have never been convicted of another sex crime. They happen to be on parole now for a completely different offense (being in jail as a child can mess you up).
When you are on parole & a registered sex offender, that adds a whole bunch of extra requirements, especially if the complainant was under 18. Remember the person here was 14, & the complainant was under 18. This is the case, even where the sex offense was literally 40 years ago.

1) Columbus Day 2018 is half time at the 2018 Mid-Term Bowl. The score is GOP 17 and Democrats 16. Let’s recap the first half.

#BlueWave #RedWave #2018MidTermElections…
2) Going into the game the Democrats were riding their #BlueWave of enthusiasm. They were so confident America was tired of all the lies and sordid behavior of Coach Trump that the Democrats could win the game easily.
3) They laughed at their good fortune every time a GOP player would pledge to work closely with their coach; such easy pickings.

I won't be lectured about majorities or electoral politics on the day #BrettKavanaugh was confirmed to #SCOTUS with the help of a goddamned Democrat.

I don't care where he's from or the demographics of his state. I don't care about any of that bullshit.

He deserves some fire under his feet on the day he voted FOR a fucking lying racist rapist who is probably going to overturn ROE v. WADE and a host of other important pieces of legislation.

He could have called in sick.

He could have abstained.

He could have stood on the Senate floor and said "I am casting this vote because my constituents have asked me to and I am their representative, but I personally strongly oppose this nominee, and support Professor Ford.

Instead he basically endorsed Collins speech.

Let it be our promise to every future life that is destroyed, changed, or affected by a Justice #Kavanaugh that we will make it a priority to see Sasse, Manchin, and Collins suffer for their vote today.

They must lose their Senate seats, and be reminded everyday why.


If we can't manage to focus long enough to carry through on our threats to our elected leaders who betray us then there will never be a reason to fear us. There will never be a reason to reconsider a decision or vote.

And maybe no mistake, @SenatorCollins must be made an example of, if only because so much focus was placed on her and her decision making process.

But also because of that poisonous victim blaming/ shaming speech she delivered yesterday.

I went to bed feeling betrayed--perhaps even enraged. I woke up, still feeling betrayed--but resolved. I still believe #AnitaHill. I still believe #ChristineBlaseyFord I still believe #survivors #women They have knocked us down, but not out. I still believe in the power of us.
Our perpetrators tried to stifle our voices too--and, WE ARE NOT GOING BACK. We will not be silenced or moved. Today, survivors will keep organizing, sharing our painful and hard truths until the very last hour, and then we'll take our fight to the ballot box.
Survivors matter and we do vote--and run for office too! We have been ignored, but not silenced #midterms A vote to support #Kavanaugh confirms more than one man, to the highest court in the land, you are also confirming #privilege #entitlement #injustice

There is no way to sugarcoat how bad things just got, and if there was, we shouldn't. This is a loss that will haunt this nation for decades.

The confirmation of #BrettKavanaugh has managed to confirm more than just a man, for many, its confirmed our worst fears.

It has confirmed that the @GOP is the most corrupt ruling party at the federal level in our nation's history. That they will do anything and everything to protect itself, including putting the survival of our Republic itself at risk.

Its confirmed that the real decisions are made before the questions are even formally presented, and that they really do not care what our opinions of those decisions will be.

And it has also confirmed that Donald Trump has a lot more power than we imagined.

People ask what #patriarchy is. Think “Jim Crow” and apply it to women—all women. It’s a web of systems, structures, practices and believes that enforce gender hierarchy and silence women. 1/

1/ There are many nonverbal signs indicating relative levels of confidence. During last week's hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford exhibited contrasting examples of one such signal.
2/ When a person raises their right hand to be sworn-in before testifying, if their fingers and/or thumb are spread apart - it signals low levels of confidence.

If you want to live in a nation that is "led" by a man who would mock someone who was the victim of a violent sexual assault then we are very different people.

Trump's behavior today was that of a playground bully. They were the words that a bully utters and then laughs.

The bully imagines, and may even hear, the world laughing with him, but the chuckles are only from his hangers-on and those hoping to impress the bully.

The rest of the world only turns its head to look away. They hope that someone, anyone, will intervene.

They almost always get away with it, though, bullies.

And Trump will likely get away with this, like always.

#ChristineBlaseyFord passed a lie detector test on the day of her grandmother's funeral. No one non-partisan or credible has questioned her credibility.

They told us @HillaryClinton was just as bad as @realDonaldTrump.

Hell, @SusanSarandon said she was worse.

She should really never open her mouth about politics again, ever.

That anyone ever fell for that ridiculous lie is beyond disgraceful.

Even if Clinton were guilty of the types of corruption they claimed she was she would still not be comparable in this way to Donald Trump.

Not even close.

But she's clearly not.

As the nation braces itself for the @GOP's latest betrayal in the runup to the #BrettKavanaugh confirmation vote, it is becoming clearer that even those we once believed retained some recognizably moral standards, simply don't.

@SenatorCollins, @lisamurkowski--we see you.

THREAD: Body Language Analysis No. 4347: Kavanaugh Confirmation Hearings - Part I • #Nonverbal #Emotional #Intelligence #KavanaughHearings #ChristineBlaseyFord #BrettKavanaugh #BodyLanguageExpert #BodyLanguage
1/ In case you hadn't heard, on Wednesday 27 September 2018, both Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
2/ This hearing could supply a year's worth of nonverbal teaching examples and it would close to impossible to analyze the entire event in one session. Thus, what follows is the first of several analyses of this historic exchange.
