While most of the mainstream media was preoccupied with Senator Susan Collins’ decision to vote for Kavanaugh’s confirmation, NBC News Heidi Przybyla (one of Yours Truly’s MSM faves) went on All in with Chris Hayes and dropped a major bombshell that may prove disastrous to Kavanaugh, and indeed Senator Collins, even after he is seated at the U.S. Supreme Court. According to Heidi Przybyla, there are text messages that have been obtained by NBC news which suggest that Kavanaugh himself may have played a part in covering up evidence from his classmates who may have corroborated Debbie Ramirez’s claims against him.Specifically, one of the texts show a witness freaking out because she doesn’t want the media/public to know that Kavanaugh reached out to her.
Think about that folks. There is electronic evidence that Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh himself, not his surrogate, was reaching out to potential witnesses/corroborators (his former Yale classmates) trying to conjure up a counter narrative to the Debbie Ramirez allegations. Even more troubling, Heidi Przybyla says some of Kavanaugh’s Yale classmates reached out to the FBI in an effort to provide more information but were turned away. Simply put, no reasonable person presented with this information would ever have concluded, as Senators Collins & Flake did, that there were no corroborators to the sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh or that the FBI background investigation was “thorough”, or “comprehensive”.

So you say, “But @Emolclause, what does that have to do with Senators Susan Collins and Jeff Flake?” Here’s why. The FBI supplemental background investigation was ordered by President Trump in large part to address the lingering sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh that had been brought by Dr Christine Blasey Ford, Debbie Ramirez and others. Both Sen Flake and Collins later based their decision to vote for Kavanaugh on the fact that the FBI investigation never corroborated the sexual assault allegations against him.
In essence, both Flake and Collins had already decided to vote YES on Kavanaugh. They just could not do it given the cloud of the sexual assault allegations against him, hence the Trump’s FBI supplemental investigation. Put another way, Trump’s FBI supplemental background probe was a sham from the beginning specifically designed to give cover to Sen Collins and Sen Flake’s predetermined YES vote on Kavanaugh. It was never meant to gather any corroborating information on the sexual assault allegations.
Therefore when both Sen Collins and Sen Flake came out in support of Kavanaugh because there was “no corroborating” information they literally perpetrated one of the biggest and most consequential frauds on the American public ever–the aforementioned “no corroboration” fraud. Luckily some serious journalists like NBC News’ Heidi Przybyla are digging around and hopefully soon will get to the bottom of this “no corroboration” fraud.

Yours Truly alluded to this “no corroboration” fraud in an earlier Tweet.

To be clear, Senator Collins offered more than the “no corroboration” argument to support her YES vote on Kavanaugh in her 3PM nationally televised speech. She did not make any forceful arguments in her 3 PM speech and you need not take Yours Truly’s word for it. Just look at how MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell tore apart the key arguments in Sen Collins’speech, specifically her presumption of innocence argument.
Lawrence O’ Donnell correctly pointed out that when sexual impropriety allegations were made against former Dem Senator Al Franken, Senator Collins was quick to call for his resignation, even before an investigation was launched. O’Donnell also tore up Sen Collins’ totally frivolous, even laughable argument that Kavanaugh and Mark Judge should be believed because they denied the sexual assault allegations under penalty of perjury. Yeah, Senator Collins literally said in her speech that she believed Kavanaugh because he denied the allegations under oath–how ridiculous is that?
Bottom line Collins’ biggest argument that there were no corroboration is a big fat lie. The truth, as Heidi Przybyla reports, is that the FBI never reached out to people who might have corroborated both Dr Ford and Ramirez’s stories and both Senators Collins and Flake knew that. Even more troubling, there are text messages showing that Kavanaugh himself was reaching out to his former Yale classmates trying to create a counter narrative for Ramirez’s allegations, which by itself should disqualify him from Judgeship in any court, let alone the U.S. Supreme Court. They may succeed in getting Kavanaugh into the U.S. Supreme Court in the short run for their partisan political interests, but in the long run as the truth about Kavanaugh will inevitably continue to trickle out, the fraud Collins & Flake have perpetrated on Americans must be exposed and should forever form their legacies–the two U.S. Senators who perpetrated one of the biggest and most consequential frauds on the American public–one that rewarded an undeserving nominee with a lifetime Supreme Court appointment. History will be very harsh to both Senators Susan Collins and Jeff Flake, and deservedly so.
For those of you very happy with @Emolclause’s activism don’t shy away from the “tip jar” below on your way out
