  1. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    And that is significantly different than demanding that a claim one has already made be investigated.

    It's pretty obvious that when a woman falsely reports a sexual assault, she is hoping that her...
  2. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    So you have a real-world example of someone answering HONESTLY to the FBI and yet being subject to a perjury charge because they either honestly answered incorrectly or someone believed that the...

    Re: Trump Engaged in Suspect Tax Schemes

    Actually, it is bad to avoid paying hundreds in millions in taxes that you owe.

    Unless one is going to argue that no one should pay any taxes at all, then we are all going to pay some taxes for...
  4. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    No, I laid out a solid, logical argument for why the most likely conclusion, by far, is that she is telling the truth in my last post and until you address that particular argument, you have no basis...
  5. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    Yes. It hurts it A LITTLE BIT.

    Just because case B is not as strong as Case A does not mean that Case B is not credible.

    Again, I acknowledge the concept. But it's just not that...
  6. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    I don't discount the effect you are referring to but "less credible than a recent memory" is not the same thing as "not credible".

    In other words, I really, really, really doubt that Ford's memory...
  7. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    I find that contradictory. If one actually understands why a sexual assault victim waits years to step forward, then they would not find the claim significantly less credible. I personally just...
  8. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    No it's not and if you are going to maintain that it is, you will need to support it with some kind of external source. I have friends that went to therapy and I have therapists in my extended...
  9. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    It most certainly is because of evidence. The evidence that she is telling the truth is very, very strong.

    The primary piece is that she told her therapist about it six years ago. The notion...
  10. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    In "anything is possible" land, yes. In reality, I think the risk of it happening is insignificant.

    Did his lawyers tell him to not speak to the Senate in the same way that lawyers tell people...
  11. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    You seem to be saying that even if he tells the truth, he might get convicted of perjury? In the "theoretically, anything is possible" world, I guess that's true. But in reality, as long as he...
  12. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    When they are, or might be, the subject of a criminal investigation, they should not talk to the police (without a lawyer present).

    And it also does not really apply the Kavanaugh hearing.
    ...
  13. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    No, I'm saying that when the police are investigating a suspect, they are not particularly interested in finding evidence that might exonerate the person they are investigating.



    There is a...
  14. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    Again, this is not a criminal trial so you are once again erroneously applying the standard of a criminal trial to what is essentially a job interview.

    If, in a job interview, someone makes a...
  15. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    I think it's more of an issue that if he's lying about more mundane aspects of his past, like his heavy drinking as a younger man and partying on weeknights, his denial regarding more serious...
  16. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    They will turn up different facts because they will be looking for different facts. The police seek facts that will help them prosecute the suspect and are not interested in finding facts that will...
  17. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    And I assume you are referring to police investigations.

    What goes for police investigations likely does not apply to an unbiased fact-finding nvestigation.




    But then it's not the Senate...
  18. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    I don't disagree with what is being said about not talking to the police. But that does not apply to a situation where the investigator is tasked with finding out the unbiased truth of the matter.
    ...
  19. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    I don't see how it's impossible for an honest man to defend himself against a credible accusation. He can present his evidence that supports that he's innocent. It's surely not the case that all of...
  20. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    How does considering a claim credible rob someone of their legitimate defense?

    I'm not saying "he did it. period". I'm saying "the claim is credible so it's worth looking into to better decide if...
  21. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    I concede that they are reasonable and just FOR A CRIMINAL TRIAL. I disagree that they are reasonable standard for determining whether it shows that a claim is credible enough to warrant further...
  22. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    This argument is invalid as it sets an unreasonable standard for credibility. Kavanaugh is not on trial for a crime that, if convicted, will result in going to jail and I would say setting the level...
  23. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    But President Trump can ask them to do it. In support:

    Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, could ask President Trump to instruct the FBI to become involved. The bureau reports to...
  24. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    Incorrect. They did it before.

    "But 27 years ago, when Anita Hill accused then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment, the FBI investigated her claims, interviewed witnesses...
  25. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    First off, let me make my overall argument.

    1. The allegations are CREDIBLE. That does not mean that it's been proven that he did it but that the claim is, well, credible and assuming that him...
  26. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    She apparently told her therapist, in 2012, that she was assaulted as a teenager at a party and specifically said Kavanaugh's name.

    If we ask ourselves why such a thing was said at the time, the...

    Re: Who is Bruce Ohr?

    I didn't say exposing truth is harmful.

    Likewise your argument that pedophilia is a sexual orientation is nothing more than an unsupported opinion and is rejected. If you aren't appealing to the psychiatric professionals on whether it's a...
