The dean of Harvard Law School won't definitely say whether Brett Kavanaugh still has a job, according to HuffPost.
Senate Dems say Kavanaugh's performance raises questions about his judicial independence.
"The outburst we saw yesterday from Kavanaugh was so vehemently and viciously partisan that he will be seen as a partisan on the Court."
An absolute MUST read NYT fact check of Kavanaughs testimony — which leaves little doubt he was being knowingly dishonest in his sworn testimony about his days as a young man: nytimes.com/2018/09/28/us/…
Something to consider as Republicans say they believe Kavanaugh.
He has been before the Judiciary Committee four times, and each time, he appears to have lied about crucial issues.

Two college classmates of Brett Kavanaugh's from Yale say he was not being honest when he testified about how much he drank.
Kavanaugh college friend Liz Swisher: "That was blurring the difference between truth & falsehood. For somebody who's a federal judge and in line potentially to be in the highest court in our country, there can be no blurring of truth & falsehood." on.msnbc.com/2DDFpPd

WSJ confirms NBC report that the White House has directed the FBI to look into the allegations of Ford and Ramirez, but not the allegations of Julie Swetnick.
This. Is. A. Cover-Up.
It’s not just that they aren’t allowed to investigate the third accuser’s claims.
They also won’t look into his drinking at Yale or pull Mark Judge’s employment records or take other basic investigative steps. Unless something changes.
In the end, three senators, Flake, Murkowski and Collins, have it in their power to set the terms of the investigation. Not satisfied? They can vote no until they are.

TRUMP smears Democrats with assertions that are the opposite of true: "It's the party of crime is what it is... Democrats want to raid Medicare and destroy Social Security." #WarIsPeace
Trump, who has worked tirelessly to strip legal protections from people with preexisting conditions, says "I will always fight for and always protect patients with preexisting conditions... all of the Republicans are coming into that position now."
