The Supreme Court's legitimacy rests in large part on the perception it is a nonpartisan institution, but Kavanaugh joined the bench engulfed in a toxic cloud of political rancor. In the year after the ugly confirmation hearing, the justices mostly kept their heads down, ducking many controversial cases for no apparent reason. They decided only two bona fide blockbusters, throwing partisan gerrymandering claims out of federal court and blocking the census citizenship question. Meanwhile, they dodged cases about Dreamers, abortion, religious freedom, and discrimination, effectively deciding not to decide. read more


House Democrats threatened Wednesday morning to subpoena the White House for documents related to Trump's dealings with Ukraine as part of their impeachment inquiry. House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said in a memo that House committees have repeatedly tried to obtain voluntary compliance from Trump officials, but the White House has "refused to engage with " or even respond to " the Committees." Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) held a joint news conference later that morning, warning that attempts by the White House to "stonewall" the impeachment inquiry and "conceal facts" would be considered an obstruction of justice. read more

Not sure I'm seeing the impeachable offense in that call. Looks like the IG didn't actually have access to the transcript when making the urgent call. www.apnews.com read more

Hampton Roads authorities have joined federal law enforcement agents investigating the recent suicide deaths of four sailors assigned to the aircraft carrier George H.W. Bush. Although two of the sailors killed themselves on the same day, Navy officials have distanced themselves from internet rumors describing their deaths as an "epidemic." They insist authorities in Portsmouth, Norfolk and Naval Criminal Investigative Service agents haven't been able to link the deaths to each other.

Schiff didnt lie. He omitted details... #14 | Posted by bored at 2019-10-06 03:40 PM

Lying by omission is when a person leaves out important information or fails to correct a pre-existing misconception in order to hide the truth from others.
You admit that he's lying immediately after claiming he didn't lie. Any particular reason?

Do you have ANY indication that any US institutions (DOJ, FBI) are investigating? That they have actually opened a probe?

If there is evidence of wrongdoing, why are they not opening an investigation? If there is NO evidence of wrongdoing, why are we asking foreign countries to investigate?

And you would think that if there were nothing untoward here, they would be doing this by the book. ESPECIALLY since they are investigating a potential presidential candidate. And why single out JUST his political opponent? Are you honestly claiming that there are no other, more important cases of corruption related to Ukraine to investigate? Why is Biden so important, if not for the fact that he is a political opponent?

I am not of the opinion that the DoJ can't look into questionable actions without opening a formal investigation. I imagine that our law enforcement personnel make smarter decisions than that.
There is evidence of wrongdoing. The prosecutor who was fired at Biden's behest makes the claim. Prior to opening a formal investigation, the prudent and intelligent choice would be to look into the matter and see if there is reasonable cause for opening an investigation. Trump supposes that Ukraine has information that could inform the DoJ about whether or not an investigation is warranted, so he sought to make the connection with the DoJ & Zelinskyy's people.
Every person over the age of 35 except for Obama and Bush are Trump's political opponent at this time, but only 1 of them has been pointed out by the Ukrainian prosecutor as having engaged in corrupt behavior.
