READ IT: Senate GOP releases letter suggesting Kavanaugh accuser Julie Swetnick is too promiscuous to be gang-raped

Published

on

Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee took the unusual step of releasing a statement about the sex life of one of Brett Kavanaugh’s accusers — and included claims from her ex-boyfriend that she enjoys group sex.

The Daily Beast reported that the letter, released by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA), contains claims from former weatherman Dennis Ketterer, ex-boyfriend to Kavanaugh accuser Julie Swetnick.

In the letter, Ketterer wrote that he doesn’t believe Swetnick’s accusation that Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge facilitated her gang or “train” rape because she “liked to have sex with more than one guy at a time.”

The former DC-area weatherman and one-time Democratic congressional candidate said his conclusions were “based on my direct experience with Julie.”

During a rally in Mississippi held hours after the committee released the letter, President Donald Trump referenced Swetnick without naming her by citing the “gang-rape” allegation and saying it had been debunked.

Stephen Colbert rips ‘idiot’ GOP senator for defending Trump’s unconstitutional self-dealing

"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert returned from New Zealand for a new show that aired Monday evening.

"I have been as far from the insatiable black hole of news that is Donald Trump as you can get on this planet.

I've heard there have been some developments over the last 10 days that did not go well for Donnie,"

The host ripped Trump's 71-minute press conference.

"Seventy-one minutes is not a press conference, it's a one man show," he explained. "If you liked 'Fleabag,' you'll love Donald Trump in 'Douchebag,'" he said.

Some of the most powerful Texas House Republicans said Monday they no longer support GOP Speaker Dennis Bonnen, marking the biggest blow yet to his political future amid the fallout from a secret recording released last week by a hardline conservative activist.

Five Republicans considered senior members of the lower chamber issued a statement withdrawing support for him: State Reps. Four Price of Amarillo, Dan Huberty of Houston, Lyle Larson of San Antonio, Chris Paddie of Marshall and John Frullo of Lubbock.

Donald Trump is making a mockery of Marco Rubio — and the Florida senator is letting him

Published

on

Sen. Marco Rubio was once one of Donald Trump’s most formidable opponents; now, the Florida senator bends over backward to excuse the president’s corruption.

In 2016, Rubio and Trump sparred frequently on the Republican primary debate stage. Trump picked the uninspired nickname “Little Marco” for the senator, which didn’t seem to do much damage on its own, but Rubio never gained the momentum or strength that his backers hoped would prove to be strong enough to take down the reality TV candidate. As Rubio grew desperate, he launched one of his most memorable and pitiful attacks by stooping to his opponent’s level, implying that Trump had a small penis. It was more of an embarrassing moment for Rubio than anyone else, though Trump helped himself with a crude rejoinder.
