A former Republican strategist, Sophia Nelson, told MSNBC on Saturday that she thinks Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh needs to withdraw his name from consideration.
The issue Nelsons sees it that the survivor of Kavanaugh’s alleged assault, Christine Blasey Ford, would be questioned by what host Richard Lui described as “crusty old white men.”
“I don’t see how the Republicans come out of this in a good way no matter what happens,” she said. “If they hear Dr. Ford and then they hear judge Kavanaugh, and then they push the nomination through, regardless of how the public feels about it or the reaction to it, that’s not going to bode well for them in the midterms.”
Not allowing the FBI to investigate further enflames people, Nelson said.
“The Republicans have to deal with this, and they’ve got to take it seriously,” she said. “Judge Kavanaugh, in my opinion needs to withdraw. They need to put somebody else in for selection and for the Senate to review. This is just a mess at this point and it is only going to get worse and Trump is not helping himself or the party.”
‘Unbelievable’: Ex-Trump official stunned president is still letting Giuliani run around unchecked in Ukraine
In a Washington Post report on the continuing attempts by former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani to dig up dirt on political opponents -- at the same time that President Donald Trump is facing impeachment for pressuring Ukraine with the promise of aid for the same -- a former Trump administration official expressed shock that Giuliani hasn't been told to stop.
Donald Trump’s new, controversial homelessness czar has argued feeding homeless people enables them
A Texas consultant who devised a controversial approach to addressing homelessness in San Antonio a decade ago was tapped by President Donald Trump this month to bring his strategy to the rest of the country.
Robert Marbut Jr., the founding president of San Antonio’s homeless shelter Haven for Hope, will lead the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness, which coordinates with 19 federal departments and agencies to address homelessness.
But aspects of Marbut's approach to addressing homelessness have garnered blowback from housing advocates. He calls feeding homeless people on the street “enabling” them, and once while working in Florida, he went undercover as a homeless person to study them.
‘Hell no’: Texans join forces to stop Trump from stealing their land
President Donald Trump's pledge to build a wall at the southern border with Mexico has been a huge winner with his base. But there is one group of people who are not happy: the Texans who actually live in the region where the wall would be built.
According to the Washington Post, many people in the region have no intention of letting the federal government seize their land to construct the wall, like Afghanistan war veteran Salvador Castillo of Brownsville, who received a letter from officials demanding unlimited access to and use of his land, which gradually escalated into a lawsuit.
