Kavanaugh classmate reveals texts that show nominee tampered with potential witnesses

Published

on

One of Brett Kavanaugh’s Yale classmates has revealed a new text message showing that the Supreme Court nominee attempted to tamper with a potential witness to one of the sexual assaults he allegedly committed.

NBC News reported that in the days leading up to the second sexual assault allegation published in The New Yorker, Kavanaugh’s classmate Kathy Charlton learned from another of his acquaintances that the nominee called him and asked him to tell press “no bad” if they inquired about the incident.

On September 21, two days before The New Yorker went live with the allegations made by accuser Deborah Ramirez, that same acquaintance texted Charlton in all-caps about the admission.

“Don’t F****** TELL PEOPLE BRETT GOT IN TOUCH WITH ME!!!” the acquaintance — whose identity was not revealed, but was confirmed by, NBC — reportedly texted her. “I TOLD YOU AT THE TIME THAT WAS IN CONFIDENCE!!!”

NBC also confirmed that the man who sent Charlton that message was also named by Ramirez as a potential witness to the incident decades prior when Kavanaugh allegedly thrust his penis onto her face.

“From the content and all capital letters of the text (the alleged witness) seemed to feel that there was a great deal at stake for Brett if Brett’s fears of exposure ever became public,” Charlton wrote in a letter to the FBI that was later shared on October 4 with Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA).

‘The ground is shifting’: Longtime GOP aide sounds the alarm that Trump is putting Arizona in play

Chuck Coughlin, who once served as a top aide to two different Republican governors in Arizona, is warning that President Donald Trump is putting his state in play for the 2020 presidential election.

In an interview with Politico, Coughlin said his party has expressed real anxiety about the state turning blue next year.

"Republicans are very concerned,” he said. "The ground is shifting."

At the moment, just 45 percent of Arizona voters have a favorable view of Trump, while 53 percent have an unfavorable view. Additionally, the victory of Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) in last year's midterm elections showed that Democrats can be competitive in statewide races in a place that became famous for electing iconic conservative senators such as John McCain and Barry Goldwater.

PolitiFact corrects conservatives: The NYT Kavanaugh story has not been debunked

Published

on

The new report from The New York Times on the allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh contained some stunning new revelations — including that several people tried to contact the FBI to corroborate Deborah Ramirez's assault allegation but were ignored, and that prominent attorney Max Stier alleges he saw Kavanaugh take part in a third assault.

But conservative news sites are now running with the idea that the Times article has been discredited and that the paper has retracted its claims. PJ Media, a prominent right-wing site, ran the headline "New York Times Now Admits New Kavanaugh Accusation Is Fake News."

Longtime GOP strategist explains why his party is getting crushed in the war of ideas

Published

on

Republican strategist Stuart Stevens on Wednesday warned the GOP that Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) might not be a pushover candidate against President Donald Trump in 2020.

Writing on Twitter, Stevens admitted that he had "no idea" if Warren would beat Trump next year, but he did say that "Trump and supporters are destroying [the] credibility of any center-right argument" thanks to Trump's "corrupt and unstable" governance.

When one of Stevens' followers said that Warren would not be able to fulfill her promises just by taxing the wealthy, he countered that this idea is still more popular than anything Republicans are championing.
