The allegation dates back to the early nineteen-eighties, when Kavanaugh was a high-school student at Georgetown Preparatory School, in Bethesda, Maryland, and the woman attended a nearby high school. In the letter, the woman alleged that, during an encounter at a party, Kavanaugh held her down, and that he attempted to force himself on her. She claimed in the letter that Kavanaugh and a classmate of his, both of whom had been drinking, turned up music that was playing in the room to conceal the sound of her protests, and that Kavanaugh covered her mouth with his hand. She was able to free herself. Although the alleged incident took place decades ago and the three individuals involved were minors, the woman said that the memory had been a source of ongoing distress for her, and that she had sought psychological treatment as a result.

Mark J. Bird, 69, was charged last month with discharging a gun within a prohibited structure, carrying a concealed weapon without a permit and possessing a dangerous weapon on school property, court records show. He was found bleeding from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his arm about 8:15 a.m. on Aug. 28 outside a bathroom in the Charleston campus K building.

Inside the bathroom, campus police found a $100 bill taped to a mirror along with a note that said, “For the janitor,” according to Bird’s arrest report. On the floor of the restroom was a black-and-white, .22-caliber pistol and one spent shell casing.
[...]
While waiting for authorities to arrive, Bird said he had shot himself in protest of President Donald Trump, police noted in their report. The report did not elaborate.

This is like cutting your nose to spite your face except then your face just laughs at you and tweets "SAD!"

And, despite the triple posting, I would be remiss to not mention that Manafort will be cooperating with the Mueller investigation as part of his plea deal. It's suspected that Manafort had already given testimony before the grand jury before the deal was made public to prevent a pardon disrupting the cooperation. Plus the cash/property forfeitures in the plea agreement are civil in nature (unable to be pardoned) and many of the crimes are able to be charged at the state level if necessary.

Canada would like to offer the United States some lovely maple syrup to go with all of those pancakes you keep flipping.

Maybe Gbaji will swing by in a few days to explain why this totally doesn't count as a flip because it doesn't follow his specific criteria.

Haven't seen him around in awhile, thought maybe he got swept up in the investigation.

Then again, I wish more people would shoot themselves to protest things instead of other people. A Thich Quang Duc vibe.

Someone on Twitter commented, "Cue the piano solo from 'Layla'" when this news broke. Smiley: laugh


Oh, what the hell.



On a side note, I never knew that J.D. Souther, Glen Frey and Don Henley wrote this song.

Edit: cause stoopid.

Mueller investigation is also operating in the black after the seizure of $30 million. Who knew prosecuting white collar crime was so economical?

It was a seizure of about $46 million. The cost of the investigation to date is about $30 million.

Somewhat alarming: Trump is now characterizing the investigation as illegal, which it patently is not.

Trump is freaking out because support for the investigation and faith in Mueller is increasing with every successful conviction and witness flip. Over the summer, it was deteriorating because it was just Trump saying what a sham it was and silence from Mueller's office. Now it's Trump whining about it being a sham and concrete results from Mueller's office and people do love a winner.

Senator Flake (R-Retiring) says that the Judicial Affairs Committee shouldn't vote to move Kavanaugh to the full Senate vote without first hearing the testimony of Christine Ford, the woman accusing Kavanaugh of attempted rape. Flake is one of the votes on the Judicial Affairs Committee which is split 11-10 so his saying "No" would halt the nomination for now. Senator Corker (R-Also Retiring) also says that the nomination shouldn't progress until Ford is heard from.

A woman has come forward to say that Ford told her about the alleged Kavanaugh assault last year while women were sharing their stories during that pesky #MeToo thing. I'd consider it a no-win coin toss for Kavanaugh and the GOP right about now. Wouldn't be surprised to see it go either way and neither way is going to be much of a victory for McConnell & Co.

Looks like they're in the negotiation stages of getting both parties to face each other in a Thunderdome.
