"Free Rein" and Trump's Reign of Terror on American Democracy, and An Update On What the FBI Is Doing

From the very beginning of his extremely unlikely and extremely undisciplined 2016 campaign, it’s been clear that Donald Trump has for many years wanted to inflict a Reign of Terror on American democracy.


And that’s what’s happened.


His reign began on January 20, 2017, and it may end any day

now — though that would mean we would get former Indiana conservative radio talk show host Mike Pence.


With no idea at all as to how he should comport himself with women, Trump openly bragged about his ability to “grab ‘em by the p___y — as long as you’re ‘a star.'”


Then, he promised his unruly base that he would put a Justice on the Supreme Court to overrule the Court’s landmark ruling in Roe v. Wade.


After putting very conservative Neil Gorsuch on the Court, now he desperately wants to change the course of SCOTUS jurisprudence for several decades.


That will probably mean that the Court will expand the power of our Chief Executive to do whatever Trump wants.


Seems that SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh, though supposedly steeped in Catholicism, and a product of a very exclusive private Catholic high school for boys, was not a nice Catholic boy when he was at Georgetown Prep.


After Professor Christine Blasey Ford courageously and credibly testified on Thursday about how Kavanaugh, while at Georgetown Prep, sexually assaulted her while drunk, Trump, at the request of Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and Senate Majority Mitch McConnell, authorized the FBI to investigate charges by several women of sexual harassment or sexual violence made against Kavanaugh.


And Trump said the FBI would have "free rein" in itis quickie quick investigation.


But it’s now clear that the White House, despite what Sarah Huckabee Sanders says, is micromanaging the FBI’s investigation.


So we sent our crack investigator, associate solitary reporter Susanna Sherman, to interview FBI Director Christopher Wray, to see what his numerous agents are up to.


“So glad you asked me about that, Susanna.”


“Sure, we’re talking to all three women who have stated openly that Kavanaugh engaged in sexually inappropriate behavior,” Wray continued.


“But you know what? We’re an independent agency that Trump has been systematically trying to destroy, so we’ve broadened our investigation to focus on him.”


“By Friday, we’ll have more than enough evidence to send to the House Judiciary Committee on the basis of which they would have plenty of grounds to commence impeachment proceedings, if only they had the guts.”


“So then, Susanna, you’re gonna have to tell the solitary reporter to hire a lot more reporters."
