Aides say Trump is ‘more anxious’ than before about Kavanaugh’s nomination going down in flames: NYT reporter

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Friday took the gloves off and started directly attacking the integrity of Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of trying to assault her when they were both teenagers.

“I have no doubt that, if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with local Law Enforcement Authorities by either her or her loving parents,” the president wrote on Twitter. “I ask that she bring those filings forward so that we can learn date, time, and place!”

According to well connected New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman, Trump’s direct attacks on Ford may be a panic move from a president who is terrified that his latest Supreme Court nomination will crash and burn.

“Several people told me yesterday that Trump by end of day was more anxious about whether Kavanaugh makes it through,” Haberman writes.

Haberman also says that Trump’s tweets questioning why Ford didn’t come forward sooner after allegedly being attacked decades ago would be major fodder for Democratic campaigns in the upcoming midterm elections.

“Strategists already counting on women being energized for November will appreciate the chance to talk about why many women don’t report attacks, after this tweet,” she writes.

"First, Ocasio-Cortez and her "Squad" mate Ilhan Omar have been talked about a lot more on Fox than on other cable news channels this year," Stelter wrote. "Second, the freshmen have been getting more attention on cable than seasoned leaders of the Democratic Party."

Congress should ask Mueller these specific questions about Trump’s involvement with Russia: Conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative Never-Trump columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined the essential questions that Democrats should ask special counsel Robert Mueller in an op-ed for the Washington Post.

"Rather than engage in the normal scattershot questioning punctuated by speechifying, the House Judiciary Committee should assign its able attorney Norman Eisen to conduct the questioning," proposed Rubin. "Members could then follow up with additional questions.'

One question she proposed asking: "Mr. Mueller, the attorney general said you did not find 'collusion.' However, you did not look for collusion. Please explain what you looked for and how that differs from [Attorney General William] Barr’s assertion that you essentially cleared President Trump of collusion?"
