It cannot be that a perjuror can take a seat in the Supreme Court of the United States – or is this country developing under Trump into becoming a banana republic? And if the GOP gangsters find it necessary to prevent – at any price – the release of documentation to prove or to rebut the guilt of a Supreme Court candidate it becomes quite clear that their fishy candidate has one or even more skeletons in his closet. Midterms – rescue us from the GOP- felons. Make America great again!

the republican party is trying to kill CHECKS AND BALANCES..THESE PEOPLE WANT TO CONTROL THE JUDICIARY..JUST AS THE PRESIDENT WANTS CONTROL OF CONGRESS..who other than Hitler..could design this?

BUrton BinGer · August 10, 2018 at 7:04 am

If Trump is the President you say he is, he could fire Rosenstein, or Mueller

On what grounds can the Republicans hide documents about Kavanagh's criminal past? Every day I discover the Republicans are even more corrupt than I thought.

Claire Clarke · August 10, 2018 at 7:13 am

is the other invvestigation in this same s. district of ny or could this be a.n. other court?

Peter Novosad · August 10, 2018 at 7:24 am

Members of the Supreme Court are to be nominated to serve justice and not to pursue political goals. But Nunez made it very clear in his "clandestine" speech to Republicans at his recent fund raising event that JUSTICE , truth, honesty and sincerity are not in the minds of the treacherous GOP.

Norm DePlume · August 10, 2018 at 7:37 am

If justice exists, Rod Rosenstein will be the one to announce the indictment of Devin Nunes for obstruction of justice.

What I find completely ludicrous is that Supreme Court Justices are swayed, pertaining to any case before them, by party affiliation. They are meant to uphold the law which is neutral to any party. So, in reality, the Supreme Court is yet another farce in American 'so called democracy'.

Rachel…sorry…your hype has finally turned me off of you show.

Ben Lutz · August 10, 2018 at 7:52 am

I would absolutely LOVE to hear Nunes' response if somebody had had the brains to ask him if he even KNOWS the full extent of what the R's in Congress are covering up…
I would also like to know how many of those people coming here for asylum that "we" have chucked out have been killed or otherwise harmed back in there little "shithole" countries yet, but take a guess how much faith I would have that ANYone in this government would tell us anything resembling the truth…

Neema Kharva Namboodiri · August 10, 2018 at 7:56 am

am in London at the moment across from a pub named 'Hung, drawn and quartered' – a punishment, ahem, specific to traitors in the Victorian era. Cannot help but wonder how many would be lined up from this corrupt cabal…

2middy · August 10, 2018 at 8:00 am

you are a communist rachel

Peter Novosad · August 10, 2018 at 8:00 am

Calc – a banker of a smallish financial institution in Chicago – becoming Trumps Army Secretary (with the world's largest spending budget) in exchange of a USD 16 MM loan to Manafort? This would have been the life-time deal for Calc. It would have given him ample opportunities to bribe – just think of Pruit… USD 16 MM. is peanuts.

Sen Blumenthal left one important issue out concerning the nominee:
-Whether a president, sitting, former or impeached, can be indighted and therefore whether a president can get away with treason, collusion, violating the emoluments clause, corruption, bribing, being bribed, silencing women about affairs an abortions, money laundering and all else we do or still do not know about

Joseph Nagle · August 10, 2018 at 8:11 am

Kavanaugh is required by the Republicans because he has already admitted that he is all for fascism. He believes that the president should not be subject to the law no matter how criminal he may be. One criminal giving carte blanche to the criminal in chief. Cosy little arrangement. Imagine how much you can steal with complete immunity from prosecution. CORRUPTION of the highest order.

TheDaveman75 · August 10, 2018 at 8:14 am

If the level of corruption inside the U.S. government is so extreme that they are going to install a supreme court judge FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE who is pro Trump and picked by Trump who will then judge on Trump's myriad crimes then you have say that the only solution in the end would be that someone will have to assassinate that judge. Seriously you're talking about edging towards dictatorship here. Who knows how the vote count in November is not going to be completely hacked by Putin? Trump was literally coordinating with the Russians in Helsinki about how to manipulate the elections. Utter treason and perilously close to dictatorship

G.AURORA PECK · August 10, 2018 at 8:16 am


Bjarke Stemann · August 10, 2018 at 8:18 am

Following the nazi playbook to go from democracy to fascist dictatorship. Republicans are paving the way step by step.

poplife123 · August 10, 2018 at 8:28 am

On so many levels this is truly the WORST president ever…..

Bram Latumahina · August 10, 2018 at 8:30 am

The Republicans does obstruct the Mueller-probe!!!!!The republican party had to be impeached!!

Elaine Brooksbank · August 10, 2018 at 8:45 am

So Republicans are purposely withholding documents which are perfectly legitimate for Democrats to see before a confirmation hearing whilst, at the same time, wanting to impeach Rosenstein for withholding documents which, by long standing DOJ rules into ongoing investigations, they have no right to see. There's a word for that!!!!

Do Republicans have to cheat, ignore the rules & adopt underhand tactics for everything?

They want to withhold documents on Kavanaugh because they desperately need him confirmed to the SC before Mueller issues a subpoena so he can block it. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Trump & his associates claim they want the Mueller to end whilst, at the same time, wanting to drag it out by enforcing a subpoena – which their plant will block so it all goes away.

So, what they really mean is they want the Mueller investigation to end before any of us get to hear what their part was, if any, in conspiracy with Russia to defraud the American people. Obviously what any "innocent" party would do.

Then, just in case their plant doesn't comply, they want to impeach Rosenstein for doing his job so another, more compliant plant, will end the investigation.

Does anyone get the impression that Republicans are terrified that the Mueller investigation may reach its natural conclusion? You have to ask why an American political party doesn't want an investigation into interference in our democratic process by a foreign adversary to proceed. Maybe it's the bit where anyone complicit in a conspiracy to aid that interference is exposed that they're more concerned about. Why's that then????

RACHEL MADDOW, is extremely hard to believe, and a very poor script reader.

Michelle Hope Lamb · August 10, 2018 at 9:24 am

I want to be Rachel’s daughter so she can tell me bedtime stories. She makes everything interesting. She also would have made an amazing government teacher.
