So, what's the WH/Senste justification for not interviewing the witnesses the accusers say will corroborate their claims?

Or even the accusers. Or anyone who knows anything about Bart's drinking.

Does it matter ? No matter what the FBI does, if the outcome is that it doesn’t find any proof or corroboration, the left will continue to throw a tantrum and say the investigation should be longer / more independent / lead by Muller etc...

In their mind, all of the stuff happened, and if the FBI can’t find it, it’s nefarious.

There is no point in continuing with this sham.

Fixed.

Complaining about how biased "the left" is and how they'd be unwilling to accept the outcome of an investigation if they don't like the results seems a bit..tone deaf?

The swing votes? Yes.

With two days left on the investigation they had the time to keep interviewing people. The WH is acting like they're afraid of what they might find.

Krusty the clown, you are accused of throwing pies at a party. We will investigate by neither asking anyone who may have been at the party, or similar parties, nor anyone who remembers your tendency to throw pies.

Sideshow Bob, you were reportedly in the room with Krusty when the pie flinging occurred, and may have assisted in pie flinging. Do you recall such an event happening?

Sideshow Bob: Why no of course not, that would incriminate myself sir!

Kavanaugh dropped an op-Ed the WSJ yesterday. Feels like damage control this late in the game.

Say what you want about Dem opposition, but if the GOP is having trouble getting the votes the problem isn't partisanism, it's the candidate.

I realize you don't participate any more but the abortion discussion this week clarified my thinking.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whole_...v._Hellerstedt
ustice Alito, joined by Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Thomas, filed a second dissenting opinion, arguing that there is no direct causal link between the Texas law and the closings of abortion clinics, and they may have also been affected by the withdrawal of state funds, declining demand for abortions, and retirements of doctors.
Roberts would have allowed the Texas law the closed over half the clinics (without the surgical center provision ever going to effect). So he might not overturn Roe, but he's ok with adding so much regulatory burden a majority of clinics shut down, greatly reducing access to abortion.

So yes, abortion won't be outlawed, but it'll be difficult to access for all but those in dense population centers ...and the rich.

Well, this episode is over.

Can’t wait for the next installment of this shitshow, when Ruth BG bites the dust.

The Dems are going to try pulling a Weekend at Bernie’s with her.

Fun times ahead.

As an outsider, it seems odd to me that they'd vote a proven liar into the Supreme Court.

Odd, and hilarious.

I don’t want to blow this off but I’m not comfortable with doing anything beyond acknowledging the clarification.
