The premise of Dana Milbank's Washington Post column on Thursday is that the real reason why we are currently experiencing an impeachment process is not due to the Democrats urge to impeach from the moment President Trump was elected in 2016.

The New York Times is trying its best to find dirt on President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, filing an odd public information request with his wife’s employer.

A New Court Nominee, But TV News Employs Same Old Biased Script
July 11th, 2018 10:21 AM
Since the 1980s, the well-worn liberal playbook is to claim that Republican appointees to the Supreme Court should be voted down as ideologues who are outside the judicial mainstream. The establishment media aids this tactic by often tagging GOP nominees as “conservative,” while ignoring — or even disputing — the liberal bent of Democratic nominees to the Court. True to…
