WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congressman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), a senior member of the House Judiciary Committee and Chairman of the Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property and the Internet, released the following statement on the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court.
“The swearing in this evening of Justice Brett Kavanaugh brings a just and honorable end to a terribly distressing confirmation process that repeatedly threatened to upend the most vital standards of fundamental fairness. That it did not succeed will restore at least some confidence that the system can work as intended, and that the American experiment has once again proved as durable as ever.
“What should never be forgotten, however, is the damage that has been done. This was supposed to be a fair and reasoned review of a nominee’s record on the bench, understanding of the Constitution, and vision of the role of the federal judiciary. It was instead a carefully coordinated political attack that was plotted in secret, coordinated among Senators and staff, and intended to destroy a good man. This did, indeed, replace the doctrine of advice and consent with a mission to search and destroy.
“It is my full expectation that as an Associate Justice, Brett Kavanaugh will display the same careful consideration for the facts, adherence to the law as written, and impartial and independent judicial temperament that has marked his entire judicial career. I further trust that he will be able to look past the terrible way he and his family were treated by powerful interests in Washington, keep faith that he persevered through it all, and serve with honor and distinction for many years to come.
Trump Tower Meeting: Coincidence Or Set-up? It’s hard to even calculate the odds. Could it be just a coincidence that the same Russian woman who offered Don Trump Jr. damaging information on Hillary Clinton was also, at the same time, working with the man who created the Steele Dosseir to damage the candidacy and reputation of Donald Trump Sr.. It all adds up to a set-up.
Trump Tower Meeting: Coincidence Or Set-up?
But Wait, there’s more! We now know that Obama’s attorney general, Loretta Lynch granted the same type of “informant” visa waiver to the Russian spy who tried to set-up Don Trump Jr. as the FBI gave to Henry Greenberg – the 17-year long FBI informant who offered damaging information about Hillary Clinton to Michael Caputo and Roger Stone in another apparent set-up attempt. Neither Greenberg nor the Russian spy would have been in America and able to offer “dirt” on Hillary Clinton to Trump’s campaign associates if the FBI and DOJ had not granted them VIP access into the United States, to give them the opportunity to disrupt and/or set-up the Trump presidential campaign.

America’s 9,600 international nameplate auto franchises, many of which are family-owned businesses, employ more than 577,000 Americans, resulting in a payroll of $32 billion and an additional 527,000 indirect jobs. Dealers represent the retail side of an international auto industry that has invested $75 billion in U.S. operations and more than doubled its production in the U.S. over the past 15 years. In 2016, 5.5 million vehicles were built by Americans at these factories. While most of these vehicles were sold to American consumers, 925,000 of them were exported to over 140 countries.
