My Opinion

The New York Times published an article based on “sources” that implied that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had discussed using the 25th Amendment to remove Trump, and suggested the possibility of “wearing a wire”.

This smells like agitprop. The Justice Department would discuss impeachment, not the 25th Amendment, to remove a President, and FBI and Justice Department officials write contemporaneous notes of any interaction that is not routine. It is the White House cadre that discusses the 25th Amendment and records conversations. This sounds like someone in the White House is trying to push things forward by getting Rosenstein fired.

To listen to Brett Kavanaugh tell it, not only did he not sexually assault women, but he walks on water and used a pack of crackers and a tin of sardines to provide everyone at Trump’s inauguration with a tuna salad on whole wheat sandwich and a dill spear. His biggest problems are his high school yearbook and the writings of his ‘wingman’, Mark Judge. Judge’s works have more in common with Hogarth’s The Rake’s Progress than Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress. After looking at his yearbook, many of the women who initially signed a glowing letter of recommendation for Kavanaugh withdrew their support.
