Delay, Deceive and Destroy
October 2nd, 2018 12:43 PM
Who believes another FBI investigation of Brett Kavanaugh will be the end of it? If the FBI finds nothing to support Christine Blasey Ford's testimony that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a high school party, will it be enough for Democrats to vote to confirm him?

On Monday, ABC’s Good Morning America was the only network morning show to refuse to cover Monica Lewinsky accusing former President Bill Clinton of a “gross abuse of power” for having an affair with her when she was a White House intern.
