    Can't help them with that, can you? Henrietta Lacks had cancer cells stolen from her body that were used to establish the first immortal cell line and trillions of dollars have been generated from the cell line's usage in research. The Godwins got off easy.

    I know why people claim he lied, I just do not accept their conclusions

    the only "lie" or "lies" I have seen referenced revolve around "devil triangle" and whether it was a reference to a quarters type drinking game or some nefarious rape/club type thing

    there is no credible evidence that he, or his circle of friends, engaged in sexual abuse or misconduct

    outside of that; the only other "lie" would be his testimony about Dr Ford

    his tetsimony is far more credible

    the main 3 reasons I think that are

    1 - Dr Ford clearly lied in her testimony (or made egregious misstatements at the least)
    2 - every woman that has worked with him professionally has spoken on his behalf and vouched for his character
    3 - he has been prominent in the public eys for decades, and accusations against him only surfaced when his placement on SCOTUS would change the ideological makeup of the court

    You like to make great, big, giant leaps as you go along, huh?

    Guess that goes with the strawman you started with.

    I am sure you know that what was stated was that all of the sexual allegations stuff could be taken off the table, he still lied demonstrably and repeatedly. Not sure why you went right to that anyway; the sexual allegations stuff.

    Furthermore no one can honestly say one testimony was true while one was not between Bart and Ford.

    For example:

    "Update: September 29, 2018
    Kavanaugh even lied about having no connections to Yale. “I have no connections there. I got there by busting my tail,” Kavanaugh said under oath about getting into Yale Law School after attending Yale as an undergrad. In fact, he was a legacy: His grandfather, Everett Edward Kavanaugh, also went to Yale for undergrad, as this yearbook shows."

    OP, how dare you call out Democrats for using hyperbole in order to get people out to vote. You know that's only a bad thing when Trump does it! Now go in the corner and think about what you've done.

    what is a leap?

    you talk about "strawman"; yet, that is not what this thread was

    there were certainly people that discussed impeaching Kavanaugh if he were to get confirmed

    there are several articles about it

    plrase explain how my thread is a "strawman"

    what assumption did I make and what words did I put in anyone's mouth to create an easy argument to dismantle that noone actually said

    please be specific and provide details

    TIA

    about what?

    outside of the "devil's triangle" and whether or not it was a sex game and whether he or Dr Ford were speaking truthfully; what has he been accused of lying about?

    because I don't know what else you'd think he lied about

    I mean, are you talking about whether or not he blacked out?

    are you talking about how serious his d"drinking problem" was?

    I mean, my friends on the left are all jiggy with Jug Ears admitting to smoking weed and trying cocaine, but want to talk about a guy that drank in high school & college?

    whether or not he drank to excess is subjective

    and it is worth noting that he was a top student and athlete at a prestigious prep school and university; which counters any credible claim that he was a 'problem drinker"

    seriously, the ONLY "lies" that I am aware of that he was even accused of all fall under that realm of opinion

    Isn't that what Reality America is all about? Is not that how you "know" he didn't lie? Your opinion IS reality in america. Why question yourself? It doesn't really matter if he did or not, and that's the america the world got to see live. They also know us as a militarist empire that embarks upon bogus wars. But it's our opinion that our wars are just even when we're dead wrong about why we go. Within what we call "the law" there is all manner of duplicity, parsing of words and thin rationales. Whether he is fit to serve in that position is subjective. Everything is.

    I agree with this

    and this

    here is the thing, he did not "demonstrably lie"

    I'm not sure that Ford did either (about what happened between them several decades before, I do know that she lied about other things in her testimony - the reason for her 2nd front door is a prime example), I THINK she did (lie about what happened); but I also accept that we may be talking about a case of mistaken identity

    Henrietta Lacks was dead and impossible to be the victim of a theft. Her cells did more for humanity after her death than she ever could in life.
