Trump was great today. He smacked those lying scumbag dems on the committee./ And the media kept trying to move on to K while T wanted to talk trade. Those media scum got smacked too.

Tick tock -

Don Stewart, a spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, said that a floor vote on Kavanaugh would not take place on Monday even if the FBI investigation concludes Monday morning because the Senate’s rules for invoking cloture require several days’ delay. “If the [FBI’s] report comes in today,” Stewart said, “Leader [McConnell] could file cloture, setting up a Wednesday cloture vote, and Thursday confirmation.”
The deal brokered by Flake called for a cloture vote no later than this Friday. But word that the FBI could finish the review by Monday morning — and the Sunday night dissemination of a memo by the Arizona prosecutor who questioned Ford during last week’s hearing — stoked fears among Democrats that a rushed confirmation vote could follow close behind.
The New York Times reported Sunday evening that the FBI’s “‘limited’ supplemental background check of Judge Kavanaugh could be finished by Monday morning.”

Where is the memo from the Arizona gal?

Found one news report here

Todd Juvinall

Here is Ms. Mitchell's assessment of he Ms. Ford testimony last week. Of course the democrat will now slime this prosecutor whose life's work has been to jail abusers.

"In the legal context, here is my bottom line: A “he said, she said” case is incredibly difficult to prove. But this case is even weaker than that. Dr. Ford identified other witnesses to the event, and those witnesses either refuted her allegations or failed to corroborate them. For the reasons discussed below, I do not think that a reasonable prosecutor would bring this case based on the evidence before the Committee. Nor do I believe that this evidence is sufficient to satisfy the preponderance-of-the-evidence standard."

We know the truth.

Number 1 on the memo. was enough for me. I stopped there. Late teens in the mid eighties in high school would put Brett 300 miles away at Yale, being two years her senior and all. Then maybe ‘ 81, which would make her 14 to ‘83 to zeroing it in to summer, 1982, six week window. I would like to hear how her memory was jogged to pinpoint it all after she wrote the letter and gave WaPo the breaking news interview.

She can’t even prove a high school house party ever took place. Not one human. Not even high school gossip and girl talk. Moving on.

Think somebody already posted this and I didn’t bother to read it. Short and sweet.

Diamonds and Silk are making a movie. Problem is they are broke since the Tech Tianas of social media declared them a threat to the community. Dangerous to the public.
Anyway, they are asking for cash. GoFund Me sites are the new campaign contribution bagmen.
Oppps, topic. Hmmm. Ok. We are being carpet bombed, but what else is new? Really smoked them out this time. :)

Worth repeating. They have come out from behind the curtains and swinging wildly at the air in broad daylight and they don’t care. No even hiding it. Sloppy as Dr. Susan Rice’s CYA e-mail.
This is Gettysburg. Started off relatively small and mushroomed into full out war. Sure, this is also the Gong Show. This is their Jerry Springer show....and they do not care. Not even a touch of modesty. Oh, they may care, but not that much, not really.
Amazing, it’s always the same puppeteers everytime. Think they are showing signs of panic. We will know how effective the smear campaign is come Nov 6.

Dr. R's experience obtaining his Real ID driver's license reminds me of the old Silicon Valley saying that you can always identify the pioneers because they're the guys with arrows in their backs.

I was in and out of the Auburn DMV office this morning in less than 40 minutes. Everything proceeded like a well organized assembly line. Lines were short and there was plenty of parking outside.

On an entirely unrelated subject, I consider it progress that the conversation here has progressed from sex with animals to the Folsom Street Fair.

Paul Emery

George (both)

My understand after spending the weekend at the Celtic fest is that there was quite a rumble in the Scottish quarters about Walt, Todd and Bill's accusations about the sex life of Scots.

Walt

Now Paul is all out making things up. I'm not Scottish.(memory loss again?)
No way was I shelling out big bucks. I'll save it for the real Celtic experience. Will be there next Spring, to visit my kin. You can stick with the wannabes.
Good to see someone came back to let you out of the stocks.
Your music that bad?

Walt

Can't blame us George R.,, Paul and Boardman started it.
( I didn't even accuse Paul of getting lost in the sheep barns at the fairgrounds.)

Paul Emery

Walt

They were talking about precious conversations Walt. Seems that there were a few people noting what was being said. Insulting someones nationality and heritage is a pretty bad thing to do and can arouse passions.

Walt

Sure Paul.. Whatever you say. Funny, they can always speak up here.. How come they haven't? You sound a lot like a Judge K accuser. No facts, and full of shit.

No proof will ever be enough.
WASHINGTON, D.C.—As accusers against Brett Kavanaugh continue to come forward and his nomination vote looms near, the embroiled judge has produced what some are calling a "smoking gun" in order to confirm he was a virgin when alleged sexual misconduct took place: official Star Wars bed sheets he used throughout high school and into college.

Kavanaugh held up the sheets, carefully preserved in his childhood home for many years, and continued to declare his innocence.

"I was sleeping on an X-Wing for crying out loud," an exasperated Kavanaugh said in a Fox News interview as his wife nodded solemnly. "I clearly wasn't one of 'those kids' who were partying every weekend."

Da Nang Blumenthal has a nice ring to it -

Trump calls Kavanaugh a “great man” and a “great student.” Trump mocks Blumenthal as a great Vietnman war hero who never went to Vietnam. Mocks him as “Da Nang Blumenthal.” He also says Cory Booker destroyed Newark and asks the crowd to take a look at some of things Booker wrote about women (referring to his admission that he groped a girl in high school).

The water is washing away the sand castle of lies -

Swetnick did not confirm that she saw Kavanaugh spike punch, but simply said she “saw him around the punch containers.”
“I don’t know what he did,” she told NBC.
She also appeared to backtrack on her suggestion that Kavanaugh was involved in gang rapes, saying she only saw him congregated with other boys outside of rooms. When Snow asked if she thought the boys were gathered in order to rape girls in the rooms, Swetnick replied “yes.”

Good luck with that when the independents support Judge K by a 33% margin -

A Public Opinion Strategies poll published last Friday shows a majority of West Virginia voters supporting Kavanaugh’s confirmation. The Judicial Crisis Network, which commissioned the poll, released its breakdown:
Overall, West Virginia voters want Brett Kavanaugh confirmed with a margin of 58% – 28%
This includes the majority of independent voters with a margin of 59% – 26%
This includes the majority of women voters with a margin of 52% – 35%

Jill Somerville

Dr. Rebane - I heard a women on the Limbaugh radio program this morning mention what was a perfect theory on Fords so called believable testimony which was clearly rehearsed. The woman stated that she used her natural nervousness knowing she was giving false testimony to make it appear she was being honest. Her tears and her high voice was really was all an act but a good actress uses that for effect. I would like to hear your opinion on this.

George Rebane

JillS 849pm - At this stage of the 'game' all things are possible as the stakes on both sides get higher. I didn't hear Limbaugh's program, but as the days pass, it becomes more plausible that the whole Ford thing was a well-rehearsed set up. It all fell apart when Judge Kavanaugh, instead of folding up, came back with a strong defense and counter charged the Democrats in front of the whole country. They did not expect that, and now they're desperately trying to cobble together a Plan B.

"the whole Ford thing was a well-rehearsed set up."

Whatever it takes.

When you've convinced yourself that Trump is Hitler and that traditional America is the SS, anything is allowed as a countermeasure. Policy doesn't work as an argument source, so character assassination is what is left.

To me, the more interesting question is how they got there. It's as if a few million people scared each other telling stories around the campfire.

@ 8:12 am

Good fine, Scenes. One of many that shows her story and life’s story is unraveling. Dr. Ford could do us all a favor by throwing us a bone so we can believe..or at a minimum verify her testimony. As of to date, we cannot even prove there was a house party or party or even a house related to us in Dr. Ford’s testimony, nor even the township the assualt took place. Dr. Ford’s life long best friend says she (the witness) has never met Brett Kavanaugh. Throw us a bone! Please! Even some hearsay. Anything.

What is worse than assualt? Rape. What is worse than rape? Gang rape. What is worse than gang rape? Throwing a glass of ice across the bar at Yale in 1985!

Fact is dugsKKKI I really had no dog in the fight until the Team Lefty contingent in the Senate started their antics! I was hoping that Don Willett on the 5th circuit would get the nod this based on a recommendation from "Tim the Lawyer" (Timothy Sandefur - https://goldwaterinstitute.org/team/timothy-sandefur/) as regularly heard on the Armstrong & Getty show.

But now I hope Kavanaugh is crammed right up the democrats ass for the next 40 years based on your not unexpected douchebaggery alone!

The truth will set you free -

Charges against four California dentists -- including three brothers -- accused of kidnapping and sexually assaulting a woman at a Las Vegas Strip resort were dropped after cellphone video showed the allegations were "completely fabricated," one of the men's attorney said.
Prosecutors dropped the charges against Poria Edalat, 30, Saman Edalat, 39, Sina Edalat, 34, and Ali Badkoobehi, 30, after the defendants presented the video to the district attorney’s office, KVVU-TV reported.

An unnamed woman told security at the Wynn Las Vegas resort she was sexually assaulted in a suite while intoxicated.
Lawyers for the four dentists maintained all along the allegations were false. They predicted in August the case would be dropped once prosecutors reviewed the video evidence.

GOP aides on the Hill and another person familiar with the process said they were expecting the bureau to conclude its report as soon as late Tuesday or early Wednesday.

The FBI investigation appears to be done and Fords team Clinton, pink pussy hat wearing, scum bags are howling that the FBI did not do another interview with Ford Why would they when they have the sworn statement and tons of video?


Perhaps this had something to do with it -

In a letter released Tuesday and obtained by Fox News, an ex-boyfriend of Christine Blasey Ford, the California professor accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, seemingly contradicts her testimony under oath last week that she had never helped anyone prepare for a polygraph examination.

The former boyfriend, whose name was redacted, also said Ford neither mentioned Kavanaugh nor said she was a victim of sexual misconduct during the time they were dating from about 1992 to 1998. He said he saw Ford helping a woman he believed was her "life-long best friend" prepare for a potential polygraph test. He added that the woman had been interviewing for jobs with the FBI and U.S. Attorney's office.
He also claimed Ford never voiced any fear of flying (even while aboard a propeller plane) and seemingly had no problem living in a small, 500 sq. ft. apartment with one door -- apparently contradicting her claims that she could not testify promptly in D.C. because she felt uncomfortable travelling on planes, as well as her suggestion that her memories of Kavanuagh's alleged assault prompted her to feel unsafe living in a closed space or one without a second front door.

Ford "never expressed a fear of closed quarters, tight spaces, or places with only one exit," the former boyfriend wrote. On Thursday, Ford testified, "I was hoping to avoid getting on an airplane. But I eventually was able to get up the gumption with the help of some friends and get on the plane." She also acknowledged regularly -- and, in her words, "unfortunately" -- travelling on planes for work and hobbies.

@ Walt

Yep, and her grandpappy on the ground floor in the formation of the CIA is something that might have helped her land some work down the line. Plato Alto U is a parking lot warehouse, basically. There are other businesses in there. But, it’s that Standford gig that pricks my interest. Teaching interns who want to work for the CIA. That is ok, in and of itself.
The students/interns have to go through a polygraph to get hired by the Company. Sure, the press says FBI and State or something. But when administrating the test, the interns must also fail at the start to get a baseline. Dr. Ford teaches them how to take a polygraph and how pass a polygraph Machine.

Odd, not a peep from her parents. Even OJ Simpson’s mom came out and declared her boy’s innocence and good character. Heck, she was playing Onward Christian Soldiers on the piano as the repo guys were pushing the piano and her right out of the door and to the truck. That’s what Mom’s and Dad’s do....normally. Hmmm.

She already put her therapist”s notes out there in the public realm via the Wa Compost. She has lost any right to hide behind privacy. We can get the notes, all the therapists notes....all of them .....but not necessary. Ain’t needed. We play nice. :). On to perjury! Look harder! Temperament!

Boy, the Dems sure have riled up the base with this one. The conservative moms and true rape victims and fair minded folks are starting to simmer...and simmer...and simmer.. The Left was already energized, but now we are pissed and energized. They pushed too close to knocking over our Constitutional process. Closest thing I have seen to a dismantling of our system in my lifetime. Way too close.

See Rasmussen daily average today? With all this bull pucky going on, Trump @ 48. And he is on the road, working his rallies, and calling Dems all sorts of unflattering names. Thank you Mr. Trump.

Ben Emery

Yesterday on at least a dozen groups conservative, liberal, and progressive alike I put forward this one question. Not one person either for or against Judge Kavanaugh confirmation could name a single case or decision he has made.

"I would like to know by issues and by decisions as a judge, why a person would like Brett Kavanaugh to be appointed a lifetime position to the US Supreme Court?"

The Democrats and Republicans have successfully done it again, choreographed a side show that doesn't contain any real content to whether this person is qualified to be a Supreme Court Justice.

Women, you are being exploited once again by powerful institutions and people.

A $3 trillion dollar tax cut was passed in the last week, how many knew this happened?

You would generally need to be an avid follower of the circuit court on which a judge sits to know this Ben. Attorneys, reporters, etc would probably know one or two and they would need to be important cases.

I asked her if this was just a fantasy of hers. She responded that she first tried sex with multiple guys while in high school and still liked it from time-to-time. She brought it up because she wanted to know if I would be interested in that."

 Bill Tozer

Last week I said in all sincerity that something horrid happened to Dr. Ford sometime in her life. She appeared not to have emotionally developed beyond that of a normal 14 year old girl. I have seen many that did not emotionally development after they picked up a drug or drinking habit in their teens. Not saying Dr. Ford ever was a drug addict or alcoholic, but someone with a PhD speaking with a nervous laugh as a younger girl and testifying with such phrases as “me and my husband” raised a flag. It reminded me a lot of when the girls and their friends were 13-14 years old and taking them on an outing.

The other problem I have is Dr. Ford mentioned FOUR times in testimony for the FBI (or others) to check out Safeway’s employment records of a named witness to verify the timeframe. That tells me that she does not know exactly the year the assualt happened, but she remembers the one and only guy to verify her account of what happened in that bedroom who,worked at Safeway six weeks later. She entered Safeway through a different entrance than her mother, so no witnesses (mom) to her conversing with the Safeway employee, Brett’s high school buddy.

This week I am not so sure if anything horrid happened to Dr. Ford. The only victim here appears to be Justice Kavanaugh. The only survivor here appears to be Judge Kavanaugh. Time will tell....

That is right Todd and Fish and yet nothing. Over 300 cases, decisions, court opinions, etc... all have been written but nobody talks about it.

That tells me the leadership of both parties are in agreement, this man will be approved since their owners have told them so. This side show is purely for campaigning purposes and riling up the bases of each gang, red vs blue or bloods vs crips. It really doesn't get any deeper than this for about 40% of the electorate. My team vs your team, period.

Those who dictate and make the biggest difference in elections are those who do not vote since they do not have a choice that represents their interests or values. Both major parties are corrupt and morally bankrupt and everyone knows it. Unfortunately they have put so many obstacles in the way it is impossible to challenge them on any real level in partisan politics.

Everything about Kavanaugh's testimonies, legal record of shredding the US Constitution during the Cheney/ Bush era, and his court decisions and opinions shows this man to be a predator who loves authority and feels entitled or superior to others.

Pretty sad state of affairs.

Other than your usual knee jerk shot at Bush/Cheney what in your reading has led you to the conclusion that Kavanaugh is a serial shredder of the constitution?

Excerpt
Today begins the Senate hearings on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. At Mises University this year, during a talk on how the courts disregard natural law in America, Judge Andrew Napolitano looked at some troubling moments in Judge Kavanaugh's legal career.
Here is a clip from that lecture:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=9&v=lD7qzH4ob3Y

In a discussion on natural law, Napolitano noted that Judge Kavanaugh had established a record of supporting government surveillance on Americans, even when there was not probable cause to believe a crime was being committed.
Kavanaugh's support for abuse of government power in this case, has been buttressed by the Patriot Act, one of the most anti-Fourth-Amendment pieces of legislation passed in recent decades.
Napolitano goes on to outline the many ways the Patriot Act violates the natural rights behind the Fourth Amendment, concluding:
"What young lawyer was the scrivener when they were putting together the Patriot Act?"

It was, of course, Brett Kavanaugh.

,,,Ben E,,,yes, Preppy Brett is just one guy out of thousands of attorneys who could have been nominated,,,yet the bitter clingers cannot let go of the guy.

Preppy Brett didn't show himself to be above petty partisan politics during his testimony under oath last week.

It remains to be seen if he crossed a line and lied under oath.

Walt is a crying in his beer because a lib mentioned the time Preppy Brett and his drunk buds got into it with some guys in a bar and Preppy Bret tossed a drink.

Ben, you voted for Jill Stein after Bernie got booted by the Dem lever pullers, so you had two different people to vote for in 2016. Sounds like your “nobody to vote for” agrument just does not hold water. I figured that a vote for Jill Stein was a vote for Putin since she was dining with Putin and held her debates on RT...aka, Russian Telvision. Hmmm. A vote for Jill Stein was a vote for the French Green Party. Anyway, you had choices and you most enthusiasticly supported both the guy with three houses who honeymooned in the USSR and the Gal who dined with Putin. Don’t see why you are griping. Winning, like losing, becomes a habit. Never get tired of losing, Brother Ben.

Hey Ben Emery, please help us all and go read the Kavanaugh opinions then get back to us. Why are you so lazy?

Ben Emery

His disregard for the 8th amendment(torture) and habeas corpus with Meshal v. Higgenbotham. The right for people to redress their grievances in a court of law when their US Constitutional rights have been violated.

He ignored these rights for victims in secret prisons all over the world, Guantanamo, Abu Ghraib in Iraq.

Kavanaugh argue the authority of the Obama administration to hold/ detain prisoners with authority from congress in Al-Bihani v. Obama.

Over and over again this guy sides with authority over average people. When it comes to corporate law he sides with corporations over people as well.

He is the absolute wrong person to sitting on the highest court in our country.

Ben Emery

Should read; Kavanaugh argue the authority of the Obama administration to hold/ detain prisoners without authority from congress in Al-Bihani v. Obama.

It might have been better had we heard this from the democratic side of the aisle instead of the Blasey Ford nonsense!

It would have swayed me more than the circus to which we were just treated.

What are you doing at mises.com.....you won't be able to show your face in progressive circles any more?

(You never told me how you were feeling?)

Ben Emery

Fish,
I agree with the Obama picks for SCOTUS as being the same thing. My team vs your team no matter what the person's record or ideology might be. Blind loyalty has gotten us to were we are today. As I have written here and other places over and over again, First and foremost I am a civil libertarian. And yes, I do argue amongst people on the left side of the aisle about 2nd amendment.

I am 4 years cancer free as of September. My original prognosis gave me a bit higher than 25% of living 5 years. What I accomplished in healing, complete response to treatment, was a 4-5% chance with how much the cancer had spread. Feeling pretty damn lucky and also feel the way we went about using a combo of protocols gave me a much better chance. A number of people within the oncology centers agree and we have been talking about possibly setting something up where other people might give it a try.

Thanks for asking.

Fish,

The thing about it the Democratic Party is just as guilty of violating the Constitution as the Republican Party. Also the Democratic Party is just as much in cahoots with industry/ multinational corporations as the Republican Party. That makes Kavanaugh a very nice pick for both parties.

What they have done is take the MeToo! and are using it as a tool to get women to register and work for the D party. Just like the R party does with guns. Neither party has any intention of changing anything in a significant way. Those who write the big checks might have different names but come from the same economic class whose wealth and security depends on the status quo.

The alt-left criticisms are getting into the looney tunes domain. Now Kavanaugh is being criticized for issues and cases on which he was never required to rule - and those omissions are now credited to him by the Left.

That's what they are -

Senior congressional sources tell Fox News that Cosko most recently worked as a staffer for Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas. He also had worked with Sen. Maggie Hassan, D-N.H., and former Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer of California. A LinkedIn page with Cosko's name on it describes him as a "Democratic Political Professional & Cybersecurity Graduate Student."

The lowlifes are setting new and historical records by the day.

Next up: The lying sacks of shit will say Kavanaugh needs to step aside for the good of the country and the national healing can begin. Righttttt. Healing? The Leftinistas don’t want healing of the nation’s divide. Who are they kidding? To a Leftist, bi-partisanship means their way or the highway. Compromise means falling in step with them, lol.

Susan Collins and others are leaning towards this line of bull. The Leftinistas say they are seeking the truth. When have they ever ever sought the truth? When? Where?

Here’s an example of the Dems never seeking the truth or caring for the truth: Keith Ellison’s accuser is an “accuser”, not a survivor. Then assaults took place in 2016, not nearly 40 years ago. Ell She has a witness to the whole affair. We have dates and timestamps. She has tweets with the perp. She went to seek medical attention immediately, not 30 years later. The medical records have been released. To show a pattern, in 2006 another female “accuser” threatened to file a restraining order against Ellison.
Bottomline: 5% of Democrats believe her, the accuser. Guess she is not a survivor nor a victim, lol. Yes folks, that’s 5%. A whopping 5%.. Nuff said.

Before leaving the disturbed lady with some serious issues behind in the dustbin of history, one last review of Dr. Ford’s testimony and statements before moving on to the next Leftist chapter of displaying how far they are detached from reality: “Kavanaugh should step aside for the good of the country”. Lol.

Past:
Most importantly," Mitchell writes, "she does not remember how she got from the party back to her house. Her inability to remember this detail raises significant questions. ... Given that this all took place before cell phones, arranging a ride home would not have been easy." Furthermore, Mitchell notes, Ford "testified that her friend Leland, apparently the only other girl at the party, did not follow up with Dr. Ford after the party to ask why she had suddenly disappeared." This seems highly unlikely.

Present:
Mitchell also shows that "Dr. Ford struggled to remember her interactions" with The Post, which wrote that she provided "portions" of her therapist's notes to a reporter. But in her testimony, Ford could not recall if she showed The Post full or partial therapist notes or her own summary of those notes.

She could not remember whether she took a polygraph the day of her grandmother's funeral or the day after. She was unsure whether she was videotaped or recorded during the polygraph. She did not explain how she knew to call the receptionist at her congresswoman's office but could not figure out how to contact her senator, Dianne Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/marc-thiessen-kavanaughs-fate-prosecutor-rachel-mitchell-may-be-the-pivotal-person-in-the-whole-fight

No matter how sympathetic a witness Dr. Ford is, I have moved from believing something happened in her past to mess her up big time to thinking she is a disturbed woman who may be delusional, to now thinking now she may be disillusion to a manipulative liar. The liar story is making more sense with evidence presented. Ok, I said it. Moving on.

Audret Denney says she has raised $900,000 bucks and not one dime from anyone but individuals. I checked the FEC and it has no such update. It says she has raised $320,000 or so. If she has raised that amount then more power to her. But there are 45,000 more R's to overcome and they are energized to vote. LaMalfa 57-43

Fish,

One of my go to people with Constitution opinion is Jonathan Turley.

Excerpt
Jonathan Turley, law professor, George Washington University
There’s no doubt Kavanaugh has a more robust view of executive power than Justice [Anthony] Kennedy. His natural default position is likely to Article II of the Constitution. He has expressed empathy for presidents facing investigations during their term of office.

My greater concern is not the Minnesota Law Review article, but his short concurrence to the Klayman case. Klayman was a case where the DC Circuit ruled against a challenge to the metadata collection program of the NSA. Kavanaugh went out of his way to file a concurrence in which he said that even if that collection program was a search under the Constitution, he believed it could be done without a warrant because it fell within an exception — and that exception is that the president had ordered the program to combat terrorism. That is an argument that could have sweeping potential....

Related: Cosko Is Not An Unpaid Intern.

In the mainstream media, Cosko is being portrayed as a hapless overzealous intern who didn’t even have the smarts to cover up his criminal act. His former boss— Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-Texas) has denied she knew anything about Cosko’s activities. . . .

Yet, Jackson-Lee still has some explaining to do. While she claims Cosko was an “unpaid intern” in her office, the Washington Post reports that Cosko was actually a “fellow.” This was confirmed by Cosko’s lawyer, who said his client was a “fellow” in Jackson-Lee’s office and that he was being paid by an “outside institution.”

What “outside institution” paid for Cosko’s fellowship? Did that entity know about his illegal activities? What other fellowships does this “outside organization” pay for? What other House or Senate offices are hosting fellows paid by this organization?

“Intern” and “fellow” are not interchangeable because they aren’t even close to being the same thing. While internships are reserved for inexperienced college students, fellowships are usually serious policy positions and are typically filled by professionals working within other federal agencies or the private sector who are brought to a congressional office for a short stint to help a member of Congress better understand the agency or business for which that member has oversight responsibilities.

I’d like to know who was paying him, and I’d hope to see that entity questioned by the press about his behavior.
