    The Times ran a correction this morning, stating the alleged victim does not remember the incident.

    I know it requires a good deal of reading body language, but I have to agree, that woman looks scared of doing the wrong thing.

    Nothing energizes the Trump-GOP base quite like this topic. As abhorrent as it is, it is folly for the Dems to start demanding impeachment of Grabanaugh because it will never happen. It plays right in to the hand of the right wing nuts.

    Scurrilous. Why do Republicans talk like they live in the 16th century?

    Oh...nevermind.

    it appears to be more complicated than that.

    https://www.vox.com/policy-and-poli...legation-new-york-times-controversy-explained

    THere appear to be TWO accusationgs of him putting his unit in someone's face or hand. The one we already knew about was Ramirez, the one who said she gave them a list of 25 people who would corroborate, and they didn't interview any of them. The other one is new, a lawyer named Max Stier who graduated with beer guy said he witnessed it. That's the report the Times made and have since amended to say the alleged victim refuses to talk about it and people who know her insist she doesn't remember it. So she herself has not said that people who know her have said it. Stier said he reported it.

    But the right is running with this in a way that makes it appear it's Ramirez who's saying she doesn't remember it. So not only was the Times story made up, but the person who said I gave them 25 people, can't remember it, which is false.
