Potential Impeachment

The potential impeachment of the latest member of the Supreme Court is based on a tissue of lies.

Leahy’s charge stems from an infamous episode between 2001 and 2003 when a Republican counsel on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Manuel Miranda, learned that Democrats on the panel had put documents on a computer server shared with Republicans. Miranda said in an interview that he read them to learn about the party’s strategy on judicial nominations coming before the committee.

Miranda, now a private attorney in Maryland, said he worked “closely” with Kavanaugh on the nominations and may have shared information that he learned from the Democratic files. But he said that he never let Kavanaugh know he had seen documents taken from Democrats.

“I never told him that I got this from the Democrats. There was never anything like that,” Miranda said. “I can tell you for a fact that Brett didn’t know, because no one knew” aside from some other staffers.

Leahy cited the “spying” email during the hearing, asking Kavanaugh, “None of this raised a red flag with you?”

“It did not, Senator,” Kavanaugh said. “People have friends across the aisle who they talk to — at least this was my experience back then; maybe it’s changed.”

Weak, really weak. And, for the record, it isn't theft if you're so stupid you leave sensitive information in the clear on an open server. Interesting that security never seems to occur to them - is this where HER security training originated?

I'm beginning to think there

I'm beginning to think there's a mole in the Democratic party trying to drive the party into the ground.

Sad but I'm actually missing Harry Reid (at least was kind of a match for McConnell).

No mole required.

No mole required.
The democrat party's ideology and their tactics used to implement it is what's driving the party into the ground.
They've left their base, the American working man, in the dust, to be picked up by the GOP.

@Ugenetoo:

@Ugenetoo:

Agreed, I was being somewhat facetious about the idea of a mole (they are so inept that it looks like there's a mole).

What I don't get is how they aren't making any adjustments. Are they just waiting for latinos to take over the population?

Yes, there's been lots of

Yes, there's been lots of gleeful comment on the inevitability of a "permanent majority" due to simple population shifts.

But that isn't going to work if they alienate more than they gain. It's even worse if minorities who are getting jobs in the economy in record numbers suddenly decide they want to keep their earnings...
