Republican Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana exploded on Democrats Wednesday morning, accusing them of stalling the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in “bad faith.”
“What I’m hearing from the voters in Louisiana is that enough is enough. They don’t believe that anybody is in good faith right now in the United States Senate,” Kennedy said on Fox News.
He suggest that “40 hours’ worth of testimony” and FBI background checks should be enough to prove Kavanaugh’s innocence.
“Stand up in front of god and country and you either believe that there is no due process left in America or you don’t. I happen to believe there is. Now, I’m not saying that this is any country for creepy old men. It is not. Sexual harassment is wrong. And it goes on a lot. And the people who do it should be punished.
“But this is also no country at all without due process. And both the accuser and the accused are entitled to respect and fairness and due process and they are entitled to defend themselves.”
“And that’s what Chuck Grassley and the Judiciary Committee have tried to do — it is not what some of my colleagues have tried to do. I told [Fox News host Tucker] Carlson last night and I know it was harsh but I mean it. Some of my colleagues on the democratic side are in good faith,” Kennedy said.
“Some, I’m convinced — I could be convinced and rapidly being convinced don’t have a soul. How did I put it, their mothers didn’t breastfeed them. They went to raw meat. Right to raw meat. They don’t care who gets destroyed, Dr. Ford, her confidentiality, her family, they don’t care if Brett Kavanaugh gets destroyed, his reputation. Their whole mantra is just win, baby, do whatever it takes.”

Former acting CIA director explains why Trump’s inaction on Russian bounty scandal will make things worse
It was revealed nearly two weeks ago that the Russian government is paying a bounty to the Taliban for killing American soldiers.
Since then, President Donald Trump has denied that he and his administration didn't know anything about it. Then he claimed it was a hoax. Now it has become clear that the stories are not only true but that if Trump read his presidential daily briefing in 2019, he would have been aware of the problem.
Speaking to the House Thursday, Trump's former acting CIA director Michael Morell explained that things are being made far worse by the president's denial.

Trump tells Fox News the ‘Black Lives Matter’ sign on Fifth Avenue is like he’s being ‘prosecuted’
President Donald Trump appeared to reveal another quid pro quo during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.
MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell pointed it out during an interview with Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA).
"I was very nice to Mayor de Blasio. I got him ventilators when he needed them... I got him the gowns. I got him the masks. I got him everything. Then he throws a big Black Lives Matter sign right down in the middle of Fifth Avenue. I was so good to him and to Gov. Cuomo, like nobody's ever been good. And then all you end up doing out of that place is getting prosecuted."
