Thiessen is oddly right but he inexplicably forgets that Gillibrand also dynamited Franken's Senate career for much less than the case at hand. And for that, she ought to be flushed down the toilet and be as quickly forgotten.

Aaaaand we're done here.

9 hours and no one cares to comment. Why? Because Thiessen is one of WaPo's Three Stooges, rounded out with Ed Rogers and Hugh Hewitt.

Oh, I think it's totally explicable why he "forgets".

That, and she has the oratory prowess of a hare-lipped stutterer with social anxiety.  I squirmed in my seat watching that interview with Maddow after she announced.  It evoked that same level of embarrassment-by-proxy that one gets watching a middle schooler forget their lines in a play.  She not only stinks on ice for what she did to Franken, she'll get destroyed on the debate stage.

Thiessen is right for the wrong reasons. Kavanaugh was credibly accused of sexual assault, and his innocent "defininition" of terms like "Devil's triangle" and "Renate alumni" were laughably and transparently false. There was no real investigation into the accusations made (and any attempt at a real investigation was blocked by the GOP), so we will never know for sure if he is guilty of what he's been accused of.

The initial complaint against Franken seemed like a Roger Stone hit job from the start. Plus, Franken was willing to submit to an investigation. Gillibrand didn't even let an investigation happen before calling for his head.

In conclusion, fark Gillibrand, but fark Thiessen harder. I wish I believed in hell so that I'd at least have the satisfaction of knowing that Thiessen would be spending eternity with an octo-penised rapenocerous after he dies.

Gillibrand was very Hickenlooperish.

This should sink her presidential campaign, but since Trump won, nothing is off the table.

I only ever read the comments on his columns. Because the readers at WaPo are generally very liberal, and they routinely tear him and the other two a new one.

Gillibrand makes Hillary seem like a natural campaigner.

1. Gillibrand is a wall street centrist no one should vote for
2. 8 women had credible accusations of misconduct against Franken
3. Chuck Schumer asked him to resign and he did, the idea that Gillibrand kicked him out is ludicrous

And here's Schumer calling Frankenstein to tell him to resign:  https://thehill.com/homenews​/senate/36​3682-schumer-called-met-with-franken-a​nd-told-him-to-resign-report

But yeah, it was totes Gillibrand who ran him out of town for no good reason, and not pretty much the entire Senate Dem caucus after he got caught do stuff he ought not have been doing.

Way to gloss over the fact that 7 other women accused him of similar behavior.

The thing that started all of that was a Roger Stone hit job. My default position is to believe women who say that they've been sexually harassed or assaulted, but when Roger Stone tweets about it being a particular person's time in the barrel right before the allegations start flying, I'm inclined to be less credulous.

And Gillebrand did not have an independent party investigate the claims of harassment by her upper level staff member.  Internal investigations are almost always conducted by those on staff who are interested parties.

"The aides who led it - deputy chief of staff Anne Bradley and Castaldo - did not contact two former employees whom the woman said could corroborate and add to her allegations of inappropriate workplace conduct. Gillibrand's office interviewed only current employees. "

So Politico investigated the aide who was originally accused, talking to 20 former staffers. https://www.politico.com/story/2019/0​3​/11/gillibrand-sexual-harassment-12148​31

2 weeks after they did so he was fired, showing that the first in-house "investigation" was farked up.

"When I had the courage to speak up about my harasser, I was belittled by her office and treated like an inconvenience," the woman said of Gillibrand in an interview. "She kept a harasser on her staff until it proved politically untenable for her to do so."

This is going to hang around Gillebrand's neck like an albatross, as it should considering how quickly she concluded Franken was guilty. And considering the shiat job her office did "investigating" this aide.

I understand that Republicans and foreign countries are running, and will continue to run, hit pieces on Democrats up to the 2020 elections. And if a Democrat is elected president they'll run them for 4 more years.

That doesn't mean there's no substance to any piece critical of a Democratic presidential candidate.

This is one of those times, not because of TFA, but because of the in-depth investigation and article Politico did on it. It's quite an informative read.
https://www.politico.com/story/2019/0​3​/11/gillibrand-sexual-harassment-12148​31

I'll be voting for the Democratic candidate in the 2020 presidential election. I also think Gillebrand should not be the nominee, is a hypocrite when it suits her political purpose, got rid of a Democratic senator to launch her political presidential ambitions, and is a bad administrator of her own office.

My opinion may be shiat, but read the article.

Did you notice that 4 of those "credible" accusations came from anonymous "victims?"  Dupuy's accusation was that he clutched the fat at her waist when he hugged her, which made her feel bad.  The infamous USO picture clearly shows that he was not actually touching her, as she claimed, "in her sleep."  That accusation had the smell of Roger Stone ratfarkery all over it.

Maybe he's a creep.  He didn't get a chance to defend himself, and that was wrong.  He didn't get as much of an investigation as Gillibrand's pet driver finally did, when it came out that she had ignored the female staffer's complaints.  Franken took one for the party, whether or not he deserved to lose his career.  And now we will never know the truth about those accusations.

Do you really think that it was handled correctly?  Justly?  Do you believe that Gillibrand's bellowing about it had no effect on the outcome?  And finally, do you think Chuck Schumer is anything but a self-serving hypocritical Third-Way Dem?

And they almost entrapped Chuck Schumer only a week after Al Franken announced he'd step down.

He posed for pictures with people who asked him to do it.  He's truly history's greatest monster.
