Ellison accuser, fed up with smears, warns his denials ‘will end up humiliating him and his family’

Peter Hasson, DCNF (Photo by Alex Wong/Getty Images) The woman accusing Democratic Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison of domestic abuse predicted that Ellison’s attempts to “spin” the story will end up backfiring. Karen Monahan has accused Ellison, the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the party’s nominee for Minnesota attorney general, of emotionally and physically abusing her during their years-long relationship. Ellison accused Monahan of fabricating her allegations during a debate Friday night, where the congressman also suggested that more women may “cook up” allegations against him. In a string of tweets early Sunday morning, Monahan claimed Ellison is using his daughter to “smear and lie about me.” “It truly saddens me that Keith Ellison continues to have his daughter smear and lie about me. Why would you put your daughter and family in a position to lie and then have the truth come out about their lies. This is typical narcissist behavior, they will use their own kids,” wrote Monahan, an activist with liberal group Sierra Club. “I broke up with Keith in Jan. 2017, he tried to get me back for a year, I refused. I have text to show this. Watch how he and others are trying to spin this story. It is sad, disgusting and he will end up humiliating him and his family further,” she added. Ellison’s congressional office did not return a request for comment. The Minnesota arm...

Ben of Ben and Jerry’s Asks Twitter For Progressive Ice Cream Names, Hilarity Ensues

Who’s up for some Maxine’s Harass Mint and Utopian Breadline Pudding ice cream? Twitter hashtag games are a fun and effective way of sharing our ideas, no less so now that Twitter is silencing conservatives. Case in point, Ben, of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream fame and fortune, coordinated a “name the ice cream for seven up and coming progressives” effort with MoveOn.org and got far more than he bargained for. There was a time when conservatives dominated Twitter.  Yes, really.  We’re wittier, more clever, better informed, and just more fun than progressives, so when they rolled out nonsense...

Howard Root revisited

I’ve been writing about my friend Howard Root in the series “Fear & loathing at the DoJ.” I ended the series with this post on Friday with the Department of Justice letter responding to issues raised by Senators Grassley and Lee on Howard’s case. Last year John hosted Howard at a packed Center of the American Experiment lunch forum in downtown Minneapolis. Howard told the story of his experience as chief executive officer of Vascular Solutions caught in the crosshairs of the federal government when prosecutors sought to put him in the big house and his company out of...

How did Christine Ford not remember her “lifelong friend” in her letter?

We should start with a recent update to the on again, off again plans for Christine Blasey Ford to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee. As of Sunday afternoon, Ford’s attorneys have announced that a deal has been reached for her to testify on Thursday. But as always, there are caveats. The lawyers added that “they still wanted to negotiate the terms of her appearance.” In other words, there’s no real agreement yet since we’ve heard this story before. But with that out of the way, there’s another question hanging over Ford’s story which really needs to be addressed....

Blasey Ford’s Yearbook Scrubbed from Internet?

Debbie’s one of my top 10 all-time favorite female names, by the way. CALLER: Oh. Fabulous! So, I’m wondering if the reason that Ms. Blasey passed her lie detector test is because she actually had that exact situation happen to her but perhaps not with Kavanaugh? RUSH: It’s quite possible. Did you hear me earlier reference the fact that the high school yearbook for this particular...

Fox News Poll: Health care boosts Democrats in upcoming midterm elections

There is a deluge of bad news for Republicans in the latest Fox News poll. Most voters are unhappy with the direction the country is taking.  Majorities disagree with President Trump on the border wall, and extra tax-cut cash is nowhere to be seen.  And, by a wide margin, Democrats are considered the party that would better handle health care — at a time when most prioritize health care in deciding their vote for Congress.  With only 44 days until Election Day, maybe the thing that passes for good news for the GOP is that Democrats lead by only...

Accuser threatened to leave the country if Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court

Molly Prince, DCNF  The woman accusing Judge Brett Kavanaugh of attempting to sexually assault her over 35 years ago reportedly threatened to leave the country if he was confirmed to the Supreme Court. Christine Blasey Ford began worrying about her “secret” that Kavanaugh allegedly attacked her when they were teenagers after Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement in June, according to her husband, Russell Ford. “She was like ‘I can’t deal with this. If he becomes the nominee, then I’m moving to another country’,” Russell told The Washington Post. “I cannot live in this country if he’s in the Supreme Court.” “She wanted out,” he added. Following President Donald Trump’s announcement that he would be nominating Kavanaugh to replace Kennedy, Christine reportedly began researching other democratic countries where she could relocate with her family — and one country she focused on was New Zealand, according to WaPo. (RELATED: Grassley Gives Kavanaugh Accuser More Time To Decide) Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley repeatedly reached out to Christine asking her to testify about her accusations in front of the committee. Her attorneys replied with a list of conditions, some of which Grassley agreed to accommodate. Grassley extended his deadline Friday by another 24 hours to get a response from Christine on whether or not she will testify Monday. Her lawyers said she would testify during the week of Sept. 24, but didn’t not provide a set date and...

Democrats’ total personal war on Brett Kavanaugh should be a Midterm wake-up call for Republicans

There but for fortune could go you or I. Soon after Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination for the Supreme Court, Democrat Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer announced total war on Kavanaugh. That war would not just be procedural, it would be personal: Schumer chose to fight the nomination aggressively. On the night of the nomination, his office released a statement saying that he would “oppose Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination with everything I have, and I hope a bipartisan majority will do the same. The stakes are simply too high for anything less.” In addition, it has been reported that Schumer is cautioning fellow Democrats that they...

The First Time Was Farce, Too

The Democrats’ current attack on Judge Brett Kavanaugh obviously recalls their failed assault on Clarence Thomas, who has gone on to a distinguished career as an intellectual leader of the Supreme Court. Memories fade, and I had forgotten some of what Hans Bader details at Liberty Unyielding. I remember this much: the Thomas hearing was televised and gripped the nation. At the time, most Americans concluded that Anita Hill, who accused Thomas of making inappropriate sexual references while she worked for him, was lying, and Thomas was confirmed by a Democrat-majority Senate. Over time, the Democrats kept hammering away, and now their press adjunct pretends that Hill somehow carried the day. But there is much more to the story: Journalists also, disgustingly, continue to smear Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and make false claims about the Senate hearings that led to his confirmation. As lawyer Adam White notes in the Weekly Standard, the evidence overwhelmingly supported Thomas’s innocence of claims that he said sexually offensive things to Professor Anita Hill. Moreover, Not a single colleague of Hill’s came forward to support her allegations. In stark contrast, the very last panel heard by the Senate Judiciary Committee featured eight women, seven of whom had worked with Thomas at the EEOC, the Department of Education, and in Senator John Danforth’s office. … Each was given three minutes to speak, and each...

“Lifelong” Ford friend and potential witness: I have no idea what she’s talking about

At the moment, it appears that Christine Blasey Ford will testify on Thursday. And at the moment, it’s not clear whether her story will carry much weight. The fourth and presumably final person Ford apparently claimed was present at the party where the attack occurred has given a statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee, and … it’s not much help to Ford: CNN has learned that the committee has reached out to a longtime friend of Ford named Leland Ingham Keyser. “I understand that you have been identified as an individual who was in attendance at a party that occurred circa 1982 described in a recent Washington Post article,” a committee staffer wrote Keyser earlier this week. On Saturday night, her lawyer, Howard Walsh, released a statement to CNN and the Senate Judiciary Committee. “Simply put,” Walsh said, “Ms. Keyser does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without, Dr. Ford.” Ford’s legal team tried to put the best spin on it they could: “It’s not surprising that Ms Keyser has no recollection of the evening as they did not discuss it,” Katz said in a statement. “It’s also unremarkable that Ms. Keyser does not remember attending a specific gathering 30 years ago at which nothing of consequence happened to her. Dr. Ford...

Tentative agreement reached for Kavanaugh-Ford hearing on Thursday, source says

A tentative agreement for a Thursday hearing with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford has been reached, a source with knowledge of the discussions has told Fox News. Earlier on Saturday, Ford had indicated she’d accept the Senate Judiciary Committee’s request to discuss an alleged sexual assault by Kavanaugh, although the terms under which she might testify remained largely unclear. In a letter to the committee, Ford’s lawyers said that she had accepted the request to provide “her first-hand knowledge of Brett Kavanaugh’s sexual misconduct next week” after Republicans on the committee set a 2:30 p.m....

Juanita Broaddrick: Senator Feinstein Had No Interest In My Rape Allegation

Dan Bongino: Kavanaugh should be ‘preparing to sue the living snot’ out of some people …

Former Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino unleashed a tweetstorm in defense of Brett Kavanaugh, saying the US Supreme Court nominee should be ready “to sue the living snot” out of those who’ve defamed him. The conservative commentator addressed Republican lawmakers who are “grossly misreading” the sentiments of the nation as they continue to accommodate demands by Christine Blasey Ford, the woman claiming that a drunken Kavanaugh groped her during a house party nearly four decades ago when they were in high school.

Video: Ellison doesn’t know who else might have “cooked up” a sexual assault charge against him

So much for “believe the woman” I guess. While most of the media attention regarding sexual abuse allegations is focused on the Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation these days, a far more recent (and likely credible) case against former Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison is flying almost entirely under the radar. As Ed Morrissey noted yesterday, even the voters in Minnesota don’t seem interested in the stories Ellison’s accusers have to tell as he runs for the office of Attorney General in his home state. But that may have changed last night as Ellison debated his Republican opponent, Doug Wardlow. The moderators,...
