Former Republican strategist explains why Brett Kavanaugh needs to withdraw: ‘I don’t see how this works out for the GOP’

Published

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.”

Academy Award-winning filmmaker Michael Moore predicted acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney will ascend to Heaven in the afterlife during a Friday interview on MSNBC's "The Beat" with Ari Melber.

The host played a clip of Mulvaney admitting Trump's quid pro quo while seeking foreign election assistance from Ukraine.

"This man obviously is going to be admitted into Heaven," Moore said. "You know, he told the truth."

"If there was a movie version of this, somebody stuck him with a needle just before he walked out onto the stage there, a truth serum needle, and he just went on and on saying, 'Yeah, that’s what we do. Yeah, of course.' Essentially admitting there is a quid pro quo. In fact, there are many quid pro quos."

Trump campaign has 12-person ‘War Room’ toiling to fight the impeachment inquiry: report

Published

on

While the White House has bragged about refusing to start a "war room" to deal with the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump's administration, his campaign is footing the bill for a 12-person operation, the LA Times reported Friday.

“Some of you have criticized us for not having a war room — OK? — which we don’t by the way,” acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney told reporters.

“You don’t have a war room when you haven’t done anything wrong," he added.

By that logic, Trump's 2020 re-election campaign may fear the president did something wrong.

Published

President Donald Trump received harsh criticism from a former top Middle East advisor for the ethnic cleansing campaign Turkey is waging against the Kurds in Syria.

MSNBC's Chuck Todd interviewed Brett McGurk, the former special presidential envoy for the Global Coalition to Counter ISIL.

"The truth of the matter is when President Trump announced to the world last December that we were leaving Syria and he arbitrarily cut our force reportedly in half, which is already a small force, we lost all of our leverage and influence," McGurk argued. "And he really threw it out the window on this call on October 6th."
