Trump's Latest Con Game: Claims 'FBI Has Free Rein'

Good Day World!

Our Liar-In-Chief is in rare form...

First he tweeted Saturday that the White House didn't place any limitations on the FBI's ability to investigate the allegations against supreme wannabee Kavanaugh.

Next he told NBC "I want them to interview whoever they deem appropriate, at their discretion. 

That response came after NBC cited multiple reports that in fact, the Orange Anus had limited the scope of the reopened background investigation on Kavanaugh.

Classic Trumpian con. Say one thing, then do another. The man simply has no shame. 

According to The New York Times the White House has authorized the FBI to interview four witnesses: Mark Judge; Leland Keyser, a high school buddy of Ford's whom she said attended the party but was not told of the assault; P.J. Smyth, another party guest; and Deborah Ramirez, the Yale accuser. 

Sen. Feinstein has been trying to determine just what was written in Trump's letter to the FBI.,so she contacted Don McGahn and FBI Director Wray yesterday, requesting a copy of the written directive.

In the request she also wrote, "If the FBI requests any expansion beyond the initial directive, please provide the names of any additional witnesses or evidence."

By now, anyone who follows Trumpian tactics knows he's not afraid of the BIG LIE...he just keeps repeating it. 

This FBI probe is a load of bullshit, but it's working for the Trump puppets that want to plough their boy forward - even if he does get sick and vomit after drinking half of a keg, and experience numerous blackouts.

The con is on. 

* No former classmates who have contradicted Kavanaugh's account of his college alcohol consumption and instead said he was frequent, heavy drinker.

* The FBI will not be allowed to interview high school classmates who could shed light on what some people have called untruths about his testimony on alleged sexual references in his high school yearbook.

That's really too bad because the world won't get to see the real translation of "The Devil's Triangle;" the "Renate Alumnius;" the Beach Week Ralph Club, or (my favorite) "boofing."   

*No one from the FBI has even contacted Dr. Ford yet, and it's not even clear if they will talk to her at all.

While Trump may get away with pulling a fast one and acting like he was trying to get to the truth with this FBI con game, there's one thing he can't get away with; his nominee showed his partisan colors and turned on the Democratic Party and even the Clintons in his rage.

In the end, that revelation of his political bias will be his downfall. His temperament and partisanship can't be brushed aside in a coverup story. The optics were too big.

20 million viewers watching TV that day heard him spew his hate and tell the truth for the first time in the process! 

I believe there's going to be enough Republican Senators (I won't predict how many) that will stand up on that full confirmation vote, and say NO.

If I'm wrong, there's always impeachment after the midterms when the Democrats take back the House.

Time for me to walk on down the road...
