Ford failed to get him on the SCOTUS

2018-10-06 18:45:48 UTC  

so she's done

2018-10-06 18:45:55 UTC  

Jordan needs a smacking on the face by Churchill through time.

2018-10-06 18:46:04 UTC  

Well Ford didn't want any of this to be public anyway

2018-10-06 18:46:06 UTC  

"Clean your noggin, bucko"

2018-10-06 18:46:46 UTC  

I think he makes the mistake of thinking that the accusations are solely attached to his potential position

2018-10-06 18:46:55 UTC  

and not to the fact that he was even considered

2018-10-06 18:47:12 UTC  

It's doubtful any criminal charges could be brought up

2018-10-06 18:47:29 UTC  

If the United State Senate thinks you're a gang rapist, your career as a federal judge is basically over.

2018-10-06 18:47:33 UTC  

not just from lack of corroborating evidence, but because the statue of limitations probably applies

2018-10-06 18:47:34 UTC  

no but they would clearly keep up social pressure, and not relinquish that

2018-10-06 18:47:58 UTC  

@Orteid Thats kind of the point. There isn't even enough evidence to have an investigation so his name will never be clean.

2018-10-06 18:48:32 UTC  

There's not even enough evidence for probable cause. Can't even get a warrant or convene a grand jury.

2018-10-06 18:48:37 UTC  

I'm saying there wouldn't be much point bringing up any kind of charges or civil suit

2018-10-06 18:48:41 UTC  

No limitations. It happened to a minor.

2018-10-06 18:48:42 UTC  

I can't believe this many people are willing to play ball with this CHILD SCREAMING FOR A COOKIE that is the democratic party.

2018-10-06 18:48:52 UTC  

not even enough for preponderance

2018-10-06 18:49:03 UTC  

The fact that we treat their garbage with so much official channel.

2018-10-06 18:49:17 UTC  

I think that was the big mistake yeah

2018-10-06 18:49:18 UTC  

The first person to announce this should've been slapped firmly across the face

2018-10-06 18:49:25 UTC  

"I'm giving you a second chance. What did you just say?"

2018-10-06 18:49:32 UTC  

@Poppy Rider even if they were minors, limitations apply unless it was a federal offense

2018-10-06 18:49:33 UTC  

honestly less even it being "official" moreso it becoming a giant sideshow

2018-10-06 18:49:33 UTC  

"N-nothin'"
"Right."

2018-10-06 18:49:36 UTC  

in Maryland at least

2018-10-06 18:50:01 UTC  

we look at the potential results matrix and this was the wrong thing to do

2018-10-06 18:50:01 UTC  

I was just reminiscing about our friend Neil Gorsuch, and I found this video from Sen. Whitehouse's own YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gx4Ck38wMFc

2018-10-06 18:51:20 UTC  

In which Sen. Whitehouse fails to recognize the distinction between where expressive uses of money, such as political contributions, can be seen to affect politics, and where matters where the government can be seen to have infringed on rights of free expression when it imposes disclosure requirements on otherwise-private expressions, including those inherent in the transfer of funds.

2018-10-06 18:51:36 UTC  

Frankly I think it makes Sen. Whitehouse look a bit thick.

2018-10-06 18:51:45 UTC  

and not in a good way ;- )

2018-10-06 18:52:01 UTC  

not as bad as this made him look <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jw0JsGSnSFE>

2018-10-06 18:53:21 UTC  

Well

2018-10-06 18:53:30 UTC  

For what it's worth, it's kinda all they had

2018-10-06 18:53:43 UTC  

He could just yield his time, but that would probably not look good to his constituents.

2018-10-06 18:53:53 UTC  

It's not like he had anything else to go on.

2018-10-06 18:53:59 UTC  

Did Senator Whitehouse *just so happen* to run unopposed in his most recent elections?

2018-10-06 18:54:18 UTC  

can't imagine there aren't any better options for the people he represents

2018-10-06 18:54:29 UTC  

nobody cares about which senators are produced by RI

2018-10-06 18:54:41 UTC  

With all respect due to Rhode Island

2018-10-06 18:55:33 UTC  

Whitehouse should follow his constituency and roundhouse kick the people he doesn't like
