The New York Times may have buried the lede in a story about Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, which alleges that the FBI failed to speak with at least 25 witnesses about latest Kavanaugh sexual assault allegations, but that didn't stop Trump from lashing out at them on Twitter this morning, and urging Kavanaugh to sue them "for liable" in a tweet that he later deleted and then corrected after being mocked mercilessly for the mistake.

So Trump wants us to believe that these "fake news" reports could influence Kavanaugh's decisions on the court?

Both of them should have been impeached and removed from office yesterday, but that's never going to happen with Trump's Republican enablers controlling the Senate.
