What we’re reading: Kavanaugh and Trump, per usual


We’re back and we’re reading – everything from the “New York Times” to the “Wall Street Journal.” We’re trying to help you keep up with the rapid pace of politics and policy. Today, we’ve got the latest on the Kavanaugh investigation, reports that Trump’s father gave him millions, and demands by the UN to lift sanctions on Iran.

President Trump mocked Dr. Ford’s Testimony

President Donald Trump spoke in Southaven, MS on Tuesday night where he began to doubt Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony for the first time since the hearing in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“I don’t know. I don’t know,” said President Trump. “What neighborhood was it in? I don’t know. Where’s the house? I don’t know. Upstairs, downstairs — where was it? I don’t know — but I had one beer. That’s the only thing I remember.”

According to CNN, Trump’s words were then applauded.

Ex-boyfriend of Dr. Ford claimed she might have lied about some aspects of her sexual assault

Dr. Ford’s ex-boyfriend came forward Tuesday when a letter was released saying she had never spoken of Brett Kavanaugh during their relationship.

The ex-boyfriend, whose name is not known at this time, also said Dr. Ford never mentioned her encounter with Kavanaugh to him during their six-year relationship from 1992 to 1998.

He also claimed that Dr. Ford never had a fear of flying and contradicted the fact that she had never helped anyone prepare for a polygraph exam by saying he saw her help Monica McLean prepare for one.

Did Trump receive money from this father?

The New York State Tax Department is currently reviewing an allegation that President Trump might have received millions through tax fraud acts.

According to ABC, the claim comes after word spread that Trump and his siblings could have potentially been hiding millions in fake companies in order to avoid taxes.

White House Press Secretary, Sarah Sanders, responded to these reports by saying that the IRS reviewed these transactions decades ago and signed off on them.

FBI investigation will upset one side or the other

The FBI investigation will end on Friday after given a week to investigate Judge Kavanaugh.

According to the Washington Post, the investigation could end earlier as the FBI has completed interviews with those closest to the event.

The fear of another investigation comes about if the Democrats win control of the house and begin to investigate what the White House said internally about the Kavanaugh allegations.

Many potential sources not contacted in FBI investigation

Over 40 potential sources for the Kavanaugh investigation have not been contacted and most likely will not be.

The investigation is expected to end today with the FBI having concluded their work.

Additionally, Dr. Ford has not been contacted by the FBI for questioning as of Tuesday, according to her attorneys.

The U.N. court said the United States must lift Iran sanctions on “humanitarian” goods

On Wednesday, the United Nations said the United States must lift the Iran sanctions on humanitarian goods.

According to CBS News, the court claimed that the lack of humanitarian goods could have a major impact on the lives of Iranian people.

The ruling was an interim decision made today, which could make a significant impact on Iran and its people.
