Making America Rape again

Post by mavisbramston » 07 Oct 2018, 19:19

Its official
in most countries if guilty or accused of rape you could end up in jail or at least in serious trouble
In the new USA you could end up as President or a high court judge

I don't think either of them will escape retribution in the long term.
Brett Kavanaugh in particular will be pursued in the media and civil courts.

Trump may escape for the time being but if he starts sacking Sessions, Rosenstein and Mueller he will find himself in very hot water. His day of reckoning will eventually come. Karma is waiting?

Kavanaugh is suspected of lying to the confirmation committee, which is a federal offence. If that's proven, he'll be impeached (providing the Dems are in a position to get that through Congress). In the meantime, he will probably help overturn the double jeopardy law and enable Trump to pardon anyone found guilty as a result of Mueller's investigations. Currently, they could still be tried again in a state court.

It's difficult not to regard the US as a failed state.

If not failed, then definitely failing.

On 2 October, the anti-Trump, pro-labor union Facebook page “Union Thugs” posted a meme which alleged that Kavanaugh, prior to his appointment as a federal judge in 2006, was desperately lacking in trial experience and had been promoted directly from the position of law clerk to a seat on the federal bench:
How many of us knew Kavanaugh had never tried a case in a regular court? He was a law clerk promoted to a Judge by Bush.

The rest of the Snopes account makes interesting reading.
