This day in Politics


#3815

Was she smeared with doctored videos and ridiculous accusations?

I do agree it’s becoming more politicized all the time. Makes me wonder why anyone would want to put themselves through that, along with their families.


#3816

They are doing whatever they can to stall the process.

I do agree with them that the way that the records issue has been handled has risen to the level of needing more investigation. Kavanaugh should be an open book for a lifetime appointment, but they are driving this through as fast as they can just In case they might lose the Senate.

That is political cynicism being met with political cynicism.


#3817

Just more blatant with each and every day:


#3818

Why? Why do they do this sort of stuff?


#3819

This does not sound good.


#3820

They’ll get a slap on the wrist. Everyone knows C3s, C4s, PACs and campaigns illegally coordinate but no one wants to be the one to set the precedent of harsh legal punishment.


#3821

True. The NRA will receive some small monetary fine. But I’m more interested in the narrative that plays into the running Democratic theme for these Senatorial offices, that the GOP is filled with nothing but corruption and scandal, from the top to the bottom. And now they can add Rosendale to the growing list of Republicans engaged in nefarious activity. Possibly helping Tester to win this race.


#3822

Yep, include this little nugget in that narrative.


#3823

In a federal court filing, prosecutors allege that Butina has offered to flip on Erickson — who is also identified as “Person 1” in case documents. “Although the defense contends that the defendant is in a committed relationship with Person 1,” the feds write, “she recently offered to provide information to the government about his illegal activities.”


#3824

She will likely flip on anyone and everyone she can at this point. She knows she is facing some serious legal problems and a long stint in prison. And it seems likely a slew of Republicans and NRA members will end up in the cross-hairs as a result.


#3825

Come on man!!! :man_facepalming:


#3826

I dunno. Maybe the GOP IS filled with nothing but corruption and scandal, from top to bottom.

:slight_smile:


#3827

As of late, it sure seems like there is quite a bit of it running rampant across that party, that is for sure.


#3828

Gotta get this done QUICK so they can start screaming about the Democrats! as the debt explodes.


#3829

It just makes me sick to my stomach. They are doing this solely for cheap political points. Nothing more. They are willing to mortgage future generations, during a time of economic growth and strength, for damn politics. Horrible, horrible people.


#3830

Oh look another one

Must be Thursday


#3831

Interesting.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., confirmed Thursday that she had referred information about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to “federal investigative authorities.”


#3832

Tax cuts is all they really have to go with, even if it doesn’t benefit the average person very much. Nobody can actually quantify “eliminating regulations,” the promise to “close the borders,” or MAGA.


#3833

Democrats!!!


#3834

What is wrong with the NRA?
