The Morning Rant

"Chuck Schumer is saying there's 'no presumption of innocence or guilt' in the Kavanaugh hearings. His argument is that it is not a legal proceeding or a criminal trial, but rather a 'fact-finding' proceeding. But the problem is, Kavanaugh is being accused of criminal behavior, sexual harassment, rape, ogling with attempt to grope, whatever. So, like it or not, we've got ourselves a criminal trial. Witnesses have to be sworn in, evidence introduced, testimony given. If that's not a trial, I don't know what is. By the way, is there a betting pool on whether or not Christine Ford is going to show up in Washington DC on Thursday and give testimony? If there was, I'd go all in on 'no'. She seems very skittish about being in a situation where she has to answer hard questions. As I said last time, she didn't ever want to be identified. All she wanted to do is toss in an anonymous stink bomb into the proceedings and then that would result in Kavanaugh withdrawing. Which is what the Democrats were counting on, but once again, in the Age of Trump, events aren't playing out like they have in the past. And I believe that not only will Kavanaugh be confirmed, but the Democrats will pay a price for their obstructionism and dirty tactics in November. They can kiss their 'blue wave' good-bye."
