This is one of Kavanaugh’s D-list accusers by the way, whose claims were never really given attention. I watched the confirmation hearings pretty much gavel to gavel and don’t recall ever hearing about this woman. That’s not to say she wasn’t alluded to in passing, but I feel like this story is being used to discredit Christine Ford and other credible accusers.

He was using his political power to imprison big political opponents, a notable case being Yulia Tymoshenko. He also used violence against Euromaiden protestors.


#6489

Who is this Yulia, and what is a euromaiden


#6490

Euromaidan is the anti-government protests in Ukraine which caused Yanukovych to be removed from power, and Yulia Tymoshenko is a former PM of Ukraine who was convicted of embezzlement and abuse of power after she lost the presidential election to Yanukovych in 2010. She got released early after Yanukovych was deposed. The charges were viewed by many countries as biased and false.

This generation is wrapping up. More likely Sony is putting all it’s eggs in one basket to prepare for the PS5 reveal. They’ve solidified this console cycle, there’s really no point in hosting these events anymore, especially when their biggest competitor, Microsoft, is a generation behind trying to catch up.
