Warning: John Dybvig does try to contain himself, but there are a few swear-words used in his piece, so listen to this week's Letter from America at your own risk.

John Dybvig joins Ryan Bradley to take a look at the latest news from America.

First up they take a look at judge Brett Kavanaugh, and the allegations of sexual assault that have come to light prior to his Supreme Court Confirmation Hearing.  

Dybvig reckons it’s a "bullshit hearing”.

There will be no witnesses and simply the woman, making claims and the judge. This means it’ll come down to “he said, she said”.

The women making claims wants an FBI investigation, whereas Kavanaugh has not called for one.

Then they take a look at Rod Rosenstein - who had a meeting in May 2017 in which he said should perhaps wear a wire when he speaks with Trump, in order to invoke the 25th amendment.

The memorandum stating Rosenstein’s allegations was leaked this week.

We’re firing people like it’s the apprentice.

The 25th amendment is when the cabinet and congress agree that the President has gone off his rocker.

As Ryan puts it: “if they haven’t done it yet then they’re not gonna."

And finally, Ryan and Dybvig revisit ‘lock her up” and how Trump continues to push the idea of incarcerating Hillary Clinton.
