    See also how Bill Clinton was treated over Lewinsky but Trump is... Trump.

    Yeah, for Trump and the right in general, Kavanaugh being a rapist isn't a bug, it's a feature.
    Complicating things since 2009.

    Yesterday's and today's WTF Just Happened Today feeds:
    ----
    https://whatthefuckjusthappenedtoday...09/18/day-607/

    Day 607: A great gentleman.

    1/ Trump ordered the declassification of the FISA application targeting Carter Page and the release of James Comey's text messages related to the Russia investigation. Trump also called for the release of a senior Justice official's notes from the investigation, as well as unredacted text messages from Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page. (Politico / CNN)

    https://www.politico.com/story/2018/...y-texts-826304

    2/ The Trump administration plans to cap the number of refugees allowed into the United States next year at 30,000, the lowest ceiling since the refugee program was created in 1980. The new low represents a reduction of one-third, from 45,000. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo defended the move, arguing the ceiling should not be the "sole barometer” by which one measures the country's humanitarianism. (New York Times / Politico)

    https://www.politico.com/story/2018/...ceiling-826302

    3/ Trump says he feels "terribly" for Brett Kavanaugh and that Kavanaugh is "not a man who deserves this," in reference to upcoming Senate testimony from Christine Blasey Ford, who says Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when the two were in high school. Trump called Kavanaugh "a great gentleman" and expressed concern for Kavanaugh's wife and daughters. (Washington Post)

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...=.aac1f0b55e6d

    4/ After slapping 10-percent tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods, Trump threatened to impose tariffs on virtually all remaining Chinese imports. "We don’t want to do it," Trump said, "but we probably — we'll have no choice." The threat came after China responded to the latest escalation of the ongoing trade war by imposing tariffs on $60 billion of U.S. goods. (South China Morning Post)

    https://www.scmp.com/news/china/poli...-chinese-goods

    Notables.
    The Senate passed a short-term spending bill to keep the government open through Dec. 7 and delay a fight over Trump's border wall. The bill was attached to a larger budget package that includes full-year 2019 funding for the Pentagon, as well as the Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education. The House is expected to take up the bill next week. (Washington Post / The Hill)

    https://thehill.com/policy/finance/4...-spending-bill

    Mueller's plea deal with Paul Manafort took unusual steps to prevent Trump from pardoning his former campaign chairman. The deal contains language that would discourage Trump from pardoning Manafort and limit the impact of a pardon if Trump decides to do so anyway. (Politico / NY Post)

    Day 608: "What happens at Georgetown Prep, stays at Georgetown Prep."

    1/ The Trump administration is unable to account for nearly 1,500 additional migrant children who were placed with sponsors after leaving federal shelters. The revelation comes months after a similar admission in April by the Department of Health and Human Services that the government lost track of 1,475 migrants children who were moved out of shelters last year. Since 2016, HHS officials have called sponsors to check on children 30 days after they are placed, but the department has said it can not be held legally responsible for children after they are released from government custody. (New York Times)

    https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/18/u...reabouts-.html

    2/ Christine Blasey Ford wants the FBI to investigate her allegations against Brett Kavanaugh before senators hold a hearing on the allegations. Ford's attorneys sent a letter to the FBI arguing that "a full investigation by law enforcement officials will ensure that the crucial facts and witnesses in this matter are assessed in a non-partisan manner, and that the Committee is fully informed before conducting any hearing or making any decisions." Ford has not confirmed whether she will attend a public hearing on Monday about her allegations against Kavanaugh. (Washington Post) / New York Times)

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...=.f9dc799b7c5c

    Ford's letter to the FBI also says that she has "been the target of vicious harassment and even death threats" and has been forced to leave her home. (CNN / Washington Post)

    https://www.politico.com/story/2018/...vanaugh-827976
    3/ Sen. Chuck Grassley canceled a meeting where members of the Senate Judiciary Committee were expected to vote to advance Kavanaugh's confirmation. The meeting was originally scheduled for Thursday morning, and a new date has not been announced. (CNBC / Time)

    https://www.cnbc.com/2018/09/18/gras...d-hearing.html

    4/ The FBI and DOJ are expected to defy Trump's order to declassify and release unredacted versions of Carter Page's FISA warrant and text messages sent by agency officials, including former FBI director James Comey. The agencies are expected to submit their documents and propose redactions to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, which will package the materials and send them to the White House for approval and release. Doing so would put the agencies in direct conflict with Trump, who has the power to override them and declassify the materials on his own. Some of what Trump requested was already under review for potential declassification. (Bloomberg / Daily Beast)

    Trump said that exposing the corrupt Russian investigation could become one of the "crowning achievements" of his presidency. "I hope to be able put this up as one of my crowning achievements that I was able to … expose something that is truly a cancer in our country." (The Hill)

    https://thehill.com/hilltv/rising/40...ng-achievement
    5/ A new federal court ruling requires political nonprofits to disclose many of their political donors. The Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to intervene and grant an emergency request to stay a ruling by a federal judge in Washington. The federal judge threw out a decades-old FEC regulation allowing nonprofits to keep their donors hidden unless the donations were earmarked for specific purposes. (Washington Post / NPR)

    Trump again lashed out at Jeff Sessions during an interview on Tuesday. He criticized Sessions on a wide range of issues, including his decision in 2017 to recuse himself from the Russia investigation and immigration issues. "I don’t have an attorney general," Trump said. "It’s very sad." (The Hill)

    Stormy Daniels said in her new book that Trump's penis looks like Toad from Mario Kart. "I lay there," Daniels writes, "annoyed that I was getting fucked by a guy with Yeti pubes and a dick like the mushroom character in Mario Kart… It may have been the least impressive sex I’d ever had, but clearly, he didn’t share that opinion.” (Daily Beast / The Guardian)

    Today's WTF Just Happened Today feed is mostly Kavanaugh centric.

    https://whatthefuckjusthappenedtoday...09/20/day-609/

    Day 609: Such an outstanding man.


    1/ Senate Republicans plan to move forward with Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation despite sexual assault allegations by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. Trump, in defending Kavanaugh, said it was "very hard for me to imagine anything happened" with Ford because Kavanaugh "is such an outstanding man." Sen. Chuck Grassley said a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing would begin at 10 a.m. Monday, and gave Ford a deadline of 10 a.m. Friday to submit prepared remarks if she plans to testify. While Ford has not officially declined the committee's invitation, her attorney has asked for a "full, nonpartisan investigation." (Wall Street Journal / Washington Post / New York Times)

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...c5d_story.html

    2/ Sen. Dean Heller called the sexual assault allegation against Kavanaugh a "little hiccup" and that he hopes "all senators" will address the accusations "in good faith" so they can "get through this" and "off to the races." The Nevada Republican went on to call Trump "a great leader" despite saying he was "99 percent against Trump" in October 2016. Heller is considered the most vulnerable Senate Republican seeking reelection this year. (Washington Post / The Hill / New York Times)

    https://thehill.com/homenews/senate/...-little-hiccup

    3/ Trump continued to insist that there is no role for the FBI in investigating Dr. Ford's claims. Trump said the FBI investigating Ford's accusation that Brett Kavanaugh covered her mouth while trying to strip her bathing suit off during a high school party in the 1980s "is not really their thing." Former government officials, however, have come forward to contradict Trump's claim that the FBI cannot investigate the allegations against Kavanaugh. While Republican leaders in the Senate have echoed Trump's claim, several officials involved in nomination and background check processes say it's actually common. (Politico / NBC News)

    https://www.politico.com/story/2018/...s-trump-830150

    4/ A former classmate of Ford walked back her claims that she knew about Brett Kavanaugh's alleged assault at the time it happened. "That it happened or not, I have no idea," said Cristina Miranda King. "I can't say that it did or didn't." In a now-deleted Facebook post, King previously said: "The incident DID happen, many of us heard about it in school." (NPR)

    https://www.npr.org/2018/09/20/64978...i-have-no-idea


    5/ Senator Clair McCaskill will vote against Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court, but not because of the allegations against him. McCaskill cited Kavanaugh's "positions on several key issues, most importantly the avalanche of dark, anonymous money that is crushing our democracy," as the reason for her "no" vote. McCaskill says Kavanaugh "revealed his bias against limits on campaign donations" and that she is "uncomfortable about his view on Presidential power," as well as his "position that corporations are people." The Missouri Democrat is running for re-election this year in a state Trump won in 2016. Republicans hold a 51-49 majority in the Senate and could still confirm Kavanaugh's appointment even if all Democrats were to oppose his nomination. (NPR / Politico / CNN)

    Trump told Spain's Foreign Minister to "build a wall across the Sahara" in order to curb migration from Africa. When Spanish diplomats pointed out that the Sahara stretched for 3,000 miles, Trump responded by saying: "The Sahara border can't be bigger than our border with Mexico." The US/Mexico border is roughly 2,000 miles long. (The Guardian / Bloomberg / CNN)

    The Department of Health and Human Services wants to reallocate $266 million in funds to pay for housing for detained immigrant children.

    The U.S. says it is ready to resume talks with North Korea after Kim Jong Un pledged on Wednesday to dismantle key missile facilities and suggested that he would close the Yongbyon nuclear complex. Sec. of State Mike Pompeo invited North Korea's foreign minister to meet in New York next week to discuss the possibility of denuclearization by January 2021. (Reuters)

    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-n...-idUSKCN1LY30R

    Florida gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis (R) is dealing with his campaign's fifth race-related controversy after newly unearthed tweets showed one of his campaign allies using a racial slur to describe Barack Obama. "FUCK THE MUSLIM N—–," wrote Steven Alembik, who has donated more than $20,000 to DeSantis' campaign. A DeSantis' campaign spokesperson said that they "adamantly denounce this sort of disgusting rhetoric." (The Hill / Politico)

    https://www.politico.com/story/2018/...-issues-830726

    Trump has named retiring Rep. Darrell Issa to head the U.S. Trade and Development Agency. Issa is the former House Oversight Committee chairman, and has been in Congress for nine terms. He built a name for himself by clashing with the Obama administration for years and by accusing top officials at the IRS of targeting conservative groups for political purposes. (Politico)
