In the brief amount of time that will elapse between when I’m writing this and when you’re reading this, for all we know, Donald Trump may well have tweeted that he’s withdrawing the Brett Kavanaugh nomination. Or he may have taken yet another stance on what the FBI is and isn’t allowed to investigate. Or White House Counsel Don McGahn may have declared himself President of the United States. Welcome to the land of confusion, where it’s really anyone’s guess at this point.

At this point we have reports from major media outlets that the FBI is under severe restraints as to which aspects of Kavanaugh’s life it can investigate, that the FBI is free to do anything it wants, that the FBI is forbidden from investigating the allegations made by Julie Swetnick, and that the FBI is already investigating the allegations made by Swetnick. No more than half of this, and perhaps as little as none of this, is true.

It’s not the fault of the mainstream media; they’re clearly being strategically fed a lot of crap right now from inside sources who are trying to control the narrative. What’s the real truth? I couldn’t tell you. But with this nomination in freefall, and Donald Trump, Don McGahn, and the Republican Senate each having so much riding on it for different reasons, the only strategy they have left is to keep slamming their fist on the chess board in the hope that the pieces might somehow land in their favor.

   

So what happens next? There’s no way of knowing. We don’t even necessarily know what’s happening right now, let alone ten minutes from now. But if you’re Donald Trump and Brett Kavanaugh and the GOP, this isn’t what winning looks like. This is what happens when a must-win situation begins teetering toward being a no-win situation, and the resulting desperation leads to pandemonium. So stay tuned, stay grounded, don’t take any breaking news at face value, and – most of all – keep calling people like Jeff Flake, Susan Collins, and Lisa Murkowski. They’re the ones who can finish off this debacle, even if Donald Trump isn’t willing to.
