Kavanaugh’s Accuser’s Lawyer Finally Breaks Silence – Makes Nasty Last Second Demand

Published

on

In yet another attempt to delay the confirmation of Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh until after the 2018 midterm elections, Christine Blasey Ford’ is now claiming through her attorney, Lisa Banks, that she is “not prepared” to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday for a hearing without a full FBI investigation into her allegations.

Yet despite her lack of preparation to give any sort of testimony or frankly to provide any proof at all to her eleventh-hour accusations from 36 years ago, Blasey Ford wants a law enforcement investigation of the incident. In fact, according to her attorney, Blasey Ford has no intention of testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee until such an investigation takes place.

Lisa Banks appearing in an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper stated:

“Any talk of a hearing on Monday frankly is premature because she just came forward with these allegations 48 hours ago. And since that time, she has been dealing with hate mail, harassment, death threats. So she’s been spending her time trying to figure out how to put her life back together, how to protect herself and her family. And there hasn’t been an investigation and these are serious allegations.”

Banks adds: “She’s not prepared to talk with them at a hearing on Monday. No investigation — any legitimate investigation is not going to happen between now and Monday. This is going to take some time and what needs to happen is there shouldn’t be a rush to a hearing here. There’s no reason to do that.”

Meanwhile, Kavanaugh himself is expected to testify Monday. He stated concerning these accusations at the White House:

“This is a completely false allegation. I have never done anything like what the accuser describes—to her or to anyone. Because this never happened, I had no idea who was making this accusation until she identified herself yesterday. I am willing to talk to the Senate Judiciary Committee in any way the Committee deems appropriate to refute this false allegation, from 36 years ago, and defend my integrity.”

CNN reports:

“In a letter addressed to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa, and obtained by CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360,” Christine Blasey Ford’s attorneys argue that “a full investigation by law enforcement officials will ensure that the crucial facts and witnesses in this matter are assessed in a non-partisan manner and that the Committee is fully informed before conducting any hearing or making any decisions.”

The letter from Ford’s lawyers notes that despite receiving a “stunning amount of support from her community,” Ford has also “been the target of vicious harassment and even death threats” and has been forced to leave her home.

“We would welcome the opportunity to talk with you and Ranking Member Feinstein to discuss reasonable steps as to how Dr. Ford can cooperate while also taking care of her own health and security,” the letter from Ford’s lawyers said.

Ford’s attorney Lisa Banks told Cooper that Ford will talk with the committee but added:

“She is not prepared to talk with them at a hearing on Monday. She will talk with the committee,” Banks said. “She is not prepared to talk with them at a hearing on Monday. This just came out 48 hours ago. Asking her to come forward in four or five days and sit before the Judiciary Committee on national TV is not a fair process.”

“If they care about doing the right thing here and treating this seriously as they have said, then they will do the right thing and they will properly investigate this, and she will work with them in that investigation and also to share her story with the committee,” Banks said Tuesday night.

Grassley said in a statement Tuesday night that there were never any plans to sit Ford and Kavanaugh together at the witness table, as Banks told Cooper during the interview. He said there is no reason for more delay.

“Immediately after learning of Dr. Ford’s identity from news reports Sunday, committee staff started working to gather facts related to her claims. We’ve offered Dr. Ford the opportunity to share her story with the committee, as her attorney said yesterday she was willing to do.”

“We offered her a public or a private hearing as well as staff-led interviews, whichever makes her most comfortable. The invitation for Monday still stands. Dr. Ford’s testimony would reflect her personal knowledge and memory of events,” Grassley said. “Nothing the FBI or any other investigator does would have any bearing on what Dr. Ford tells the committee, so there is no reason for any further delay.”

A Justice Department spokesperson said the FBI had forwarded the initial letter from Sen. Dianne Feinstein on September 12 to the White House counsel’s office in accordance with guidelines for conducting background checks.

The spokesperson noted that the allegation “does not involve any potential federal crime,” and said “if the FBI becomes aware of new information that raises suitability questions about a nominee or appointee, the agency will inform the White House, which is an existing agreement.”

Trump: ‘Hard To Believe’ Obama Didn’t Know What FBI Was Up To In 2016

Published

on

President Trump said Wednesday that “it would certainly be hard to believe” that former President Barack Obama was unaware of what the FBI was up to in 2016. Well, of course, he knew. In fact, I would wager he orchestrated all of it. Obama is not dumb or incompetent. I’m almost certain he was pulling the strings and running the war room here.

Attorney General William Barr held a press conference today as the lightly redacted Mueller report was released. He put to rest the conspiracy theories and quelled the rabid Trump hatred by pointing out there was no collusion with the Russians or obstruction of justice. Trump tweeted out, “Game Over!” Indeed, it should be but the left will never give up this bone.

Trump praised Attorney General William Barr, saying “he’s grabbed it by the horn.” It would certainly seem that he has. The guy is fearless. Now, the left is calling for Mueller to have to testify over all this. No matter what they do it won’t change the fact there is no there-there and they are not going to get any dirt on Trump. Give it a rest already. Two years and millions of dollars later, they have nada.

From The Daily Caller:

“The conversation turned to several former Obama-era officials, most of whom are likely to be investigated in the coming months as Barr has pledged, and Trump touted the fact that he had called attention to them as “one of my great achievements, actually.”

“The president also had strong opinions when it came to whether or not Obama was aware of what the FBI was doing. “How is it possible that he didn’t know?” he asked. “I mean, we’re talking about pervasive, horrible things that were happening.”

“It would certainly be hard to believe that he didn’t know what was going on,” Trump concluded.”

That is the understatement of the century.

“Now that the collusion and obstruction conspiracy theories have been exposed for the pathetic hoaxes they always were, the Obama-era [Department of Justice] and FBI must answer for their misdeeds and the scam that they perpetrated against the American people. Justice will be served,” campaign manager Brad Parscale said. “President Trump has been fully and completely exonerated yet again. Now the tables have turned, and it’s time to investigate the liars who instigated this sham investigation into President Trump, motivated by political retribution and based on no evidence whatsoever.”

From the Washington Examiner:

“That theme — “turning the tables” on the Democrats — or some variation of it, was what the Trump campaign ran with immediately after Attorney General William Barr delivered the Mueller report to Congress. Team Trump issued a fresh campaign video with that language as it replayed a series of prominent Democrats insisting over the course of the nearly two-year-long Mueller investigation that the president was guilty of collusion.

“Another staple of the campaign’s messaging: “Investigate the investigators.” The Republican National Committee, working in tandem with Trump 2020, was using similar language in series of press releases, as it emphasized that Russian meddling occurred while Barack Obama was president.

“Bottom line: Not only did Mueller confirm that there was no collusion, we also learned the full extent of how much the Obama administration failed to act while Russia messed with America’s electoral process,” read a missive from RNC rapid response director Steve Guest.”

Trump’s 2020 campaign will no doubt use the Mueller report as a political weapon and at this point, it is one of many that the Democrats will gleefully bludgeon themselves to death with in 2020. Forget hoisting yourself by your petard… these morons are TRYING to commit political suicide. It’s glorious to watch. Popcorn-worthy incompetence and radicalism even.

There is no doubt in my mind that the hunters are about to become the hunted here. I suggest they start with Barack Obama because he knew everything that went on and nothing happened during his administration without his blessing.

REPORT: HUD To Crackdown On Illegals Taking Advantage Of Public Housing

Published

on

Trump is a master at timing. His administration is proposing a new rule to try to block some 32,000 illegal immigrant-led families from claiming public housing assistance, saying it’s unfair to hundreds of thousands of Americans who are stuck on waiting lists. And it is. This is long overdue and I applaud Ben Carson and President Trump on this move.

HUD let Congress know this week that it intends to implement the new rule, kicking off a schedule of publication and notice and comment that could have the plan finalized later this summer. That’s if the darned Democrats don’t get in the way again… which they will. The plan would scrap Clinton-era regulations that allowed illegal immigrants to sign up for assistance without having to disclose their status.

From the Washington Times:

“Under the new Trump rules, not only would the leaseholder using public housing have to be an eligible U.S. person, but the government would verify all applicants through the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) database, a federal system that’s used to weed illegal immigrants out of other welfare programs.

“Those already getting HUD assistance would have to go through a new verification, though it would be over a period of time and wouldn’t all come at once.

“We’ve got our own people to house and need to take care of our citizens,” an administration official told The Washington Times. “Because of past loopholes in HUD guidance, illegal aliens were able to live in free public housing desperately needed by so many of our own citizens. As illegal aliens attempt to swarm our borders, we’re sending the message that you can’t live off of American welfare on the taxpayers’ dime.”

“Illegal immigrants’ access to taxpayer-funded welfare and other benefit programs has long been controversial.

“It was considered a non-starter for Democrats when they wrote Obamacare a decade ago, and they excluded illegal immigrants from the health law. But the party’s attitude has changed and now some Democrats are pushing to expand the 2010 law to include unauthorized migrants.

“Polling, though, suggests Americans remain opposed to public benefits flowing to illegal immigrants, and President Trump has suggested it’s time to crack down on loopholes and interpretations that have allowed them to do so.

“In the case of Section 8 housing assistance, there are competing laws that have created confusion.

“In 2017 the HUD inspector general investigated illegal immigrants in New York who were using public housing under a special program for people with HIV or AIDS, and found that the government had never clearly stated whether housing was a federal public benefit subject to a 1996 ban for unauthorized migrants.

“Further complicating matters, Clinton-era rules specifically allowed “mixed” immigration status families to gain housing benefits. As long as one person in the home is an eligible U.S. resident, a family can qualify. The eligible person doesn’t need to be the head of the household, and could even be a minor child.

“The government created a system that allows people to apply for housing assistance as “non-contending,” meaning they decline to say whether they were legally in the country. Benefits are supposed to be adjusted on a pro-rated basis to account for those non-contenders.”

The immigrant-rights activists on the left are lining up to oppose this rule as I write this. They claim that penalizing mixed-status families means hurting the legal residents in those families, who are often young children. Too bad, they are here illegally. If they want to partake of American benefits, let them become legal immigrants first, not second. This same argument is being used to debate tax credits that, while claimed on behalf of citizen children, are paid to illegal immigrant parents.

Give the GOP credit… they’ve done their best to tighten these tax rules and regulations but the obstructionist Democrats have stopped them at every turn.

Trump’s administration is making the argument that lengthy backlogs for housing assistance make the new HUD proposal an obvious change. There are millions of people waiting on that list. One in four families who would qualify for housing assistance actually get the benefit right now. Most of those waiting for HUD help are likely poor seniors or people living with a disability. These people are being hurt by those that don’t belong here legally.

From The Daily Caller:

“HUD intends to roll out a proposal over the next few weeks that prohibits any illegal immigrant from residing in subsidized housing, even if they are not the direct recipient of the benefit. HUD currently estimates that tens of thousands of HUD-assisted households are headed by non-citizens.

“Families who are caught gaming the system by allowing illegal immigrants to stay with them either have to comply with the new rule or they will be forced to move out of their residence.

“Households will be screened through the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements, or “SAVE,” program.

“An administration official told the Caller that this is a continuation of the president’s “America First” policies.”

Did you know that the average waiting time to get housing assistance in the US is now 26 months? That’s outrageous. In progressive enclaves such as Los Angeles, you can wait more than four years. All because of illegal immigrants being allowed to break our laws.

Even Cher took notice of the idiocy here in a tweet she put out this week: “I understand helping struggling immigrants,” she said, “but my city (Los Angeles) isn’t taking care of its own.” She pointed out the 50,000 citizens that are living on the streets and who are below the poverty line and go hungry. Many are veterans who served their country only to have no place to return to and no help was forthcoming. They should have just come across the border. “If my state can’t take care of its own … how can it take care of more,” Cher wondered. Good question.

Trump found himself in agreement with Cher for the first time. “This proposal gets to the whole point Cher was making,” an administration official told The Times. Yes, it does. Faster, faster pussycat.
