    Referral for Criminal Prosecution by The Senate Judiciary Committee in Kavanaugh Case (for investigation of potential violations of 18 U.S.C. §§ 1001 and 1505, for materially false statements)

    WASHINGTON – The Senate Judiciary Committee today referred for criminal investigation apparent false statements made to committee investigators alleging misconduct by Judge Brett Kavanaugh. In a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Chris Wray, Chairman Chuck Grassley sought a criminal review of the actions by a named individual who provided Congress with the information, diverting Committee resources from an ongoing investigation.

    Committee investigators have actively pursued a number of tips the committee has received regarding the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, though the committee has not been able to substantiate any allegations of wrongdoing by Judge Kavanaugh. One tip was referred to the committee by staff for Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I). While Whitehouse referred the accuser to a reporter, the committee took the claim seriously and questioned Judge Kavanaugh about the allegations under penalty of felony. Judge Kavanaugh denied any misconduct. After the transcripts of that interview became public, the individual recanted the claims on a social media post.

    “The Committee is grateful to citizens who come forward with relevant information in good faith, even if they are not one hundred percent sure about what they know. But when individuals provide fabricated allegations to the Committee, diverting Committee resources during time-sensitive investigations, it materially impedes our work. Such acts are not only unfair; they are potentially illegal. It is illegal to make materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statements to Congressional investigators. It is illegal to obstruct Committee investigations,” Grassley said in the letter.

    Grassley has called on the Justice Department and the FBI to review the matter as a possible violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 1001 and 1505, portions of the U.S. code criminalizing the sharing of materially false information with committee investigators and obstruction of proceedings of congressional committees.

    Wait what?

    Criminal investigation requested by the Judicial Committee!

    Looks like there is a possibility character-wise that the redacted name is Michael Avenatti and then just Avenatti. Just a guess. Presumption on my part perhaps wrong.

    Avanatti is also Stormy Daniels lawyer against Trump for defamation

    Which by the way is not going too well for Stormy

    It looks like the Judge is going to toss the law suit out stating Trump’s 1st Amendment rights

    …and then comes Swetnik!

    The cartoon would have been more effective leaving out the ridiculous me2 bit and having the donkey saying, “Better put some ice on it.”

    This drawing says it all. I feel that we all have been raped by the Dims, but to see that on Lady Justice, was just plain heartbreaking and made me want to cry. Lift up our hearts to Him who comforts and draws us near when we need Him. May He comfort His People and give them strength and power to overcome the obstacles and fight the good fight; not fearing or being afraid to speak truth. All things are in Your hand O’Yah, I pray You continue to bless America and heal Lady Justice. Bring healing to each and every one of us, and please protect our President, his family, staff members and loved ones, and all Your People. As You live, Ha’Yah, in Your Name, I pray.
