Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, August 10, 2018

After being blocked by the Trump admin and the Congressional GOP, Democrats have resorted filing Freedom of Information requests in order to obtain documents related to the SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh's time working for the Bush administration. Democrats say they are trying to build a complete picture of Kavanaugh's background. One of the things the Dems are hoping the documents will answer is what the nominee knew about and what was his involvement, if any, in regard to the Bush-era torture programm. Republicans call it a stalling tactic.

After the horrible job the GOP majority in Congress has done at vetting other Trump nominees such as Scott Pruitt, Tom Price and Rex Tillerson, they should be going out of their way to make sure they get this one right.

i still do not understand why Obama did not force the issue concerning his last supreme court nomination. he should have appointed

his man by executive order and then been giving news conferences every single day to point out why his decision was correct

... Republicans call it a stalling tactic. ...

If that is what the Republicans are hanging their hat on, then the Republicans should have provided the information requested without the delay of a FoI request.

Brett Kavanaugh has been on the Federal Bench for a while and has been vetted more than a few times. The best ting his supporters could do is fulfill the FOI ASAP. Realize that this judge does not have universal support among the right- many conservatives see another Antony Kennedy and he may be. I suspect this conformation will occur before September or not at all. Problem being starting September there is seldom Quarum to take a vote, as most policos are out campaigning.

If there's no dirt, there's nothing to find. What are you afraid of ?

I think he told you he's afraid dirt will be found.

Funny, but we already know dirt exists. The man lied under oath during his last confirmation hearing.

Why do Republicans have to lie and trick voters into voting for them with their bait and switch tactics? Is it because they really have no message other than hating on the "others"?

And the only ones that are delaying here are the Republicans. Just hand over the documents and we can move on. But keep delaying right on up the mid terms. That's fine with me. That's gonna mess up Nunes and Humpy's grand schemes.

And at least Democrats are not colluding with the Hostile Foriegn powers to get that "dirt". Too bad our own government so hostile to the Truth we have to sue them to try and get to it.

I can't tell which is funnier, Nullifidia.

Is it that you think those insults are arguments
Or that you think gun-totin', pistol-packin', Don't Leave Home Without My Emotional Support Weapon JPW is partisan Democrat.

There is no arguing with 90% of the idiots on the right. They're too stupid for their own good but are given the responsibilities and privileges of adults.

There's also no arguing to burnt out old stoners who have nothing to offer but standards they set for others but never approach themselves.

JPW. Really, that is all you have?

Typical leftist. Cannot win in the arena of ideas.

Doesn't change anything.

He will be confirmed.

First of all. Information on anyone being nominated for the Supreme Court, should be public knowledge. You wouldn't want a Democratic President nominating someone to the Supreme Court without republicans having a chance to vet them.

Second. If there's dirt. It's not scandalous to be weary of their appointment.

What Boaz really means is.

Nothing matters to partisan morons.

Not even the fact that every time a Republican is president, this nation suffers economically and spiritually.

If the right had any they wouldn't resort to legislative tricks, stonewalling and closed door legislation writing with votes held so quickly modifications to the bill are in the margins written by hand.

The reason I've resulted to simply calling you stupid is because that's the honest truth and anything more than that is a waste of my valuable time.

Idiot.
