Former Arizona Senator Jon Kyl has been Brett Kavanaugh’s “sherpa” for his nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court. On the eve of Tuesday’s confirmation hearing, Kyl tells Arizona’s Politics this weekend that Kavanaugh “has done a very good job in his ‘interviews'”. Kyl also says that he has not been involved in the White House’s decision-making process on which documents should be made public for the confirmation battle.

In an email to Arizona’s Politics, Kyl said that that document production “is handled by White House Counsel” (currently, Don McGahn). The longtime Arizona lawmaker has been involved in “helping follow up on questions, etc” after their meetings with Senators. “I believe he has done a very good job in his ‘interviews’.”Democratic Senators on the Judiciary Committee are protesting last week’s decision by the White House to assert executive privilege on some 100,000 pages of documents from Kavanaugh’s record while he worked for the Bush Administration.* They are insisting that documents currently marked “Committee Confidential” be publicly released in order to question the nominee about them.

Russian asset – and unindicted co-conspirator – mafia “Don” Trump has systematically been hollowing out America’s federal law enforcement officials who investigate international organized crime since becoming president.
Already he has removed acting U.S. Attorney General Sally Yates, FBI Director James Comey, Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Mary McCord, FBI Assistant Director Mike Kortan, FBI Chief of the Counterespionage Section Peter Strzok, and Lisa Page, a lawyer in the Justice Department’s organized-crime section whose cases centered on international organized crime and money laundering.
Putin’s Russian mafia has infiltrated the U.S. government and has its puppet on the inside of American law enforcement to do its bidding.
Bruce Ohr. Lisa Page. Andrew Weissmann. Andrew McCabe. President Donald Trump has relentlessly attacked these FBI and Justice Department officials as dishonest “Democrats” engaged in a partisan “witch hunt” led by the special counsel determined to tie his campaign to Russia. But Trump’s attacks have also served to highlight another thread among these officials and others who have investigated his campaign: their extensive experience in probing money laundering and organized crime, particularly as they pertain to Russia.
Posted onSeptember 3, 2018byDavid Gordon|Comments Off on What our Democratic Legislative Nominees Said About the Recent Arizona Supreme Court Decisions
Our Democratic legislative nominees across the state are united in their fury at the Ducey packed Arizona Supreme Court decisions to prevent the Invest in Education and Outlaw Dirty Money Initiatives from appearing on the November 6 Ballot. They are all equally united in promising to do everything in their power, once elected in November, to restore full funding to our public schools and Democracy to our states. Below are the comments of some of the Democratic State Senate and House Nominees in response to the Supreme Court rulings on August 29 and what solutions they propose to solve the issues of funding our schools and getting rid of Dark Money special interests.
The problem average Americans have with the Special Counsel’s Russia investigation is understanding how the multifaceted bits of information publicly reported over the past two years all fit together like puzzle pieces that come together into a clear picture.
Two new efforts to connect the dots of the Russia investigation are now available.
Craig Unger, an investigative journalist and writer who was deputy editor of the New York Observer and was editor-in-chief of Boston Magazine and a contributor to Vanity Fair, and the author of previous books such as House of Bush, House of Saud: The Secret Relationship Between the World’s Two Most Powerful Dynasties (2004) and The Fall of the House of Bush: The Untold Story of How a Band of True Believers Seized the Executive Branch, Started the Iraq War, and Still Imperils America’s Future (2007), is out with a new book, House of Trump, House of Putin: The Untold Story of Donald Trump and the Russian Mafia (2018).
Based on his own reporting and the investigative work of a former federal prosecutor, Unger posits that through Bayrock, Trump was “indirectly providing Putin with a regular flow of intelligence on what the oligarchs were doing with their money in the U.S.”
