The candidate I support in the 2020 Democratic primary has to be the kind of person who can pull the gun out from behind the toilet and come out blazing. Or at least come back from the bathroom, blank out for a few minutes, and then start blazing. I can settle for that.
Before yesterday, the only candidate on that list for me was Gillibrand, but now Kamela Harris is on it too:
Nearly 12 hours into Brett Kavanaugh’s Senate confirmation hearing, Kamala Harris opened with a tantalizing query: Has the Supreme Court nominee ever discussed Robert Mueller’s probe with a lawyer at Kasowitz Benson & Torres, President Donald Trump’s longtime law firm?
“Be sure about your answer, sir,” Harris asked Kavanaugh. Trump’s high court pick appeared nonplussed, responding that “I’m not sure I know everyone who works at that law firm,” but the California Democrat – a veteran prosecutor known for her tenacious questioning and high on her party’s 2020 presidential short lists — would not let up.
“How can you not remember whether you’ve had a conversation about Robert Mueller or his investigation with anyone at that law firm?” Harris asked, suggesting that Kavanaugh was “thinking of someone and you don’t want to tell us.”
I hate to go here a little bit but I generally find that a lot of Democratic women in Congress are Michaels while too many of the men are Fredos. Let’s put two more women in the Senate: Jacky Rosen (NV) and Krysten Sinema (AZ).
