Kamala Harris says the Senate will probably ‘coddle’ Kavanaugh — but Americans deserve a new investigation anyway

Published

on

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) speculated that any investigation done through the impeachment of Justice Brett Kavanaugh would likely be far from ethical or accurate. Still, however, Harris wants to see it happen.

“The invisible/not so invisible hand of the White House was basically orchestrating, choreographing, curating, what the Judiciary Committee would learn about this nominee to serve for a lifetime on the highest court in our land, a court that is supposed to do the work of justice, a court where inscribed in the marble that houses it,” Harris told Maddow on Monday.

She said that government buildings proclaim “justice under the law” but when given an opportunity to ensure exactly that, the U.S. Senate had a “sham” hearing while the FBI did a “sham” investigation into complaints about Kavanaugh.

“And when we talk about expecting that people will have a sense of respect for the system of justice, we have to recognize that the process by which he was confirmed has created a crisis of confidence in that court,” Harris said. “So, yes, I’ve called for impeachment. There — I believe that is the clearest way for us to get an investigation of these allegations and we should open an investigation of these allegations, and I know some have said, ‘Well, it’s probably going to go nowhere because it will come over to the Senate if the House returns articles of impeachment and then it will go nowhere in the Senate because we’ve seen the majority in the Senate, you know, frankly, coddle the misbehavior of this president.'”

She went on to say that in the end, it comes down to the American people and the faith in the system of justice.

Published

CNN host Brooke Baldwin and special correspondent Jamie Gangel were both left utterly shocked by the latest developments swirling around the Trump White House.

After watching White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney's stunning press conference in which he revealed that next year's G7 meeting would be held at one of Trump's own golf courses and admitted that the administration had a quid-pro-quo arrangement with Ukraine, Baldwin found herself amazed at the brazenness of the administration's behavior.

Mike Pence credits president for ‘ceasefire’ solution to situation Trump created

Published

Vice President Mike Pence delivered a five-day ceasefire with Turkey after President Donald Trump agreed to pull out American troops so Turkey could bomb the Kurdish people.

Thousands of people have been displaced, thousands have been killed or wounded as a result of Turkey's bombing campaign.

The United States was forced to bomb our own military base to prevent ISIS, Syria and Russian troops to have access to American military information and equipment. The Turkish bombing began so quickly that the American military couldn't conduct a withdrawal the proper way. American soldiers were also fired on so heavily that they almost fired back in self-defense.

House Democrats: It’s time to include Trump’s shady Turkey deal in the impeachment inquiry

Published

on

Even by Donald Trump's basement-level standards, there's something bizarre about the president's behavior in deciding to allow a Turkish invasion of Syria aimed at pushing the Kurdish population out of the area — a move that is, for all intents and purposes, an act of ethnic cleansing. Less than two weeks ago, Trump, apparently spontaneously, acceded to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an's request that the U.S. pull a small number of troops out of the area to clear the way for what swiftly turned into a slaughter. Since then, Trump's attempts to justify this betrayal — not just of the Kurds, but of basic human decency — have been alarmingly erratic, well beyond his existing baseline of constant, impulsive dramatics.
