Trump calls out for the DOJ to "rescue" Kavanaugh yet Trump also politicized the DOJ. If this the new version of a "secret police" who harass people for not towing what Herr Trump decrees?

Brett Kavanaugh: Trump says DOJ should 'rescue' Supreme Court justice - CNNPolitics
A person close to Kavanaugh told CNN the accusation isn't new because, according to the book's authors, it had previously been reported to the FBI and some on Capitol Hill. This person said, citing the new book, that some Democratic senators, despite having been told of the allegations before Kavanaugh was confirmed, did not act....

...Trump tweeted Sunday that Kavanaugh "should start suing people for libel, or the Justice Department should come to his rescue." (The President initially misspelled the word "libel" before deleting the tweet and correcting the word in a subsequent tweet.)




Journalist says it's clear that Trump has 'politicized' the Justice Department
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist James Risen on Tuesday said that President Trump has politicized the Justice Department (DOJ), referring to a DOJ investigation into whether the Trump campaign was spied on in 2016.

"It's clear that the Justice Department has been highly politicized by Trump," Risen, national security correspondent at the Intercept, told Hill.TV's Saagar Enjeti and Krystal Ball.

"They are responding at every point to whatever Trump tweets or whatever Trump ... tells them over lunch someplace," he continued.

"I just think it's ridiculous that you now have Trump able to direct investigations," he said. "There's supposed to be some kind of independence at the Justice Department. Clearly, there is no independence anymore."

Didn't you get the GOP capitulation Trump memo? That's what a GOP despot (idiot-in-chief Trump) does in today's alt-fact world --- claim the Justice Dept. works for the GOP despot instead of the U.S. Constitution.
:cool:

Didn't the NYT print a retraction of the Kevenaugh accusation?
No they printed a correction.

What trump tweeted was idiotic. It was idiotic because he clearly did not pay attention to the details like most people ranting about Kavanaugh.

Trump was wrong because Kavanaugh needs no defense from the latest accusation it is falling apart and self destructing as we speak and has been from the very start

Idiocy could apply to most of Washington, seems to be the lingua franca now.

Didn't the NYT print a retraction of the Kevenaugh accusation?

The Times on Sunday night also issued a correction to the Kavanaugh story about a separate woman involved in an alleged incident with Kavanaugh at Yale that the paper reported in the same story about Ramirez, noting that the unnamed woman said she does not recall the incident. Ramirez stands by her allegations, which Kavanaugh has denied.

lt's confusing: two different woman=one named and one unnamed: FBl needs to look into it

The correction they issued was an admission that they omitted a key piece of evidence

The alleged victim has stated she does not remember the incident at all
They left that detail out when the story first broke. Not a retraction but definitely a massive hole in the story.

This is going to hurt the NYT far more than Kavanaugh
