Brett Kavanaugh busted lying about even whether he watched Blasey Ford’s testimony

Published

on

During sworn testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Kamala Harris asked Judge Kavanaugh a seemingly insignificant question concerning the earlier testimony by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, that he was being questioned to rebut.

“I only have a few seconds left and I’ll just ask you a direct question: did you watch Dr. Ford’s testimony?” Harris asked.

“I did not,” he acknowledged. “I planned to, but I did not, I was preparing mine.”

There may be added significance to the question by Harris, a veteran prosecutor who served as Attorney General of California and District Attorney of San Francisco.

Prior to Judge Kavanaugh’s testimony, the Wall Street Journal published a story that contradicts Judge Kavanaugh’s testimony later in the day.

“Among those watching Dr. Ford’s testimony was Judge Kavanaugh, a committee aide said, from a monitor in another room in the Dirksen Senate Building, where he awaits the opportunity to tell his side of the story later today,” The Journal reported.

Lying to Congress is a federal crime.

Trump may come to regret his big celebration of a small dip in unemployment

Published

Though the unemployment rate remains in the double-digits, the official unemployment numbers are slightly lower than economists expected, prompting self-congratulations by President Donald Trump.

This article first appeared in Salon.

But experts say celebration is premature.

Indeed, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the unemployment rate fell from 14.7 percent in April to 13.3 percent in May as the economy added 2.5 million jobs. The high April number was the worst that the American workforce had seen since monthly record-keeping began in 1948, and almost certainly the worst since the Great Depression. White House economic adviser Kevin Hassett predicted last month that unemployment would rise above 20 percent, a view that was widely shared by economists.
