The FBI is back on the hot seat.
But now they are involved in the Brett Kavanaugh circus.
And the FBI just announced the one thing that could doom Kavanaugh to defeat.
Trump Calls for an Additional FBI Probe
Donald Trump ordered the FBI to conduct a supplemental background investigation on Brett Kavanaugh.
Trump’s announcement came at the end of a roller coaster week.
Just when Republicans looked like they had the votes to confirm Kavanaugh, a traitor in their ranks upended the whole process.
Trump tried to sell the probe as no big deal.
Trump said that “it will be a good thing.”
“They can do whatever they have to do, whatever it is that they do. They’ll be doing things we have never even thought of,” Trump said. “And hopefully, at the conclusion, everything will be fine,” Trump told reporters.
Trump’s announcement came after RINO Senator Jeff Flake stabbed conservatives in the back.
Flake said he would not vote ‘Yes’ on Kavanaugh until the FBI conducted an investigation of no more than one week into Christine Blaséy Ford’s clearly flimsy claims that Kavanaugh tried to rape her at a party in 1982.
“I think it would be proper to delay the floor vote for up to but not more than one week in order to let the FBI do an investigation limited in time and scope to the current allegations that are there,” he said during a Judiciary Committee hearing.
Fake News Caught Lying Again
NBC dropped a report claiming Trump restricted the scope of the investigation.
The FBI could only interview four witnesses – Leland Keyer, PJ Smythe, and Mark Judge and Deborah Ramirez.
Ford listed Keyer, Judge, and Smythe as the other people present at the party where she claims Kavanaugh tried to rape her.
All three have denied her account.
Keyer even said she had never met Kavanaugh.
Ramirez is the former Yale student who claimed Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party freshmen year.
Her story quickly fell apart when it was revealed she was drunk at the time and she had called former classmates asking them if Kavanaugh was the student who exposed himself.
Liberals howled in outrage.
They claimed the fix was in.
But Trump shot down NBC’s fake news story,
NBC News incorrectly reported (as usual) that I was limiting the FBI investigation of Judge Kavanaugh, and witnesses, only to certain people. Actually, I want them to interview whoever they deem appropriate, at their discretion. Please correct your reporting!
Democrats and the Media Whine
Democrats and the media complained that the FBI was not investigating Kavanaugh’s high school and college drinking.
They claimed he lied under oath.
Kavanaugh said sometimes he had too many beers but that he never drank until he blacked out and lost memory.
Liberals seized on these remarks by falsely claiming he said he never drank to excess.
Minnesota Democrat Amy Klobuchar whined about the FBI not digging into Kavanaugh’s youthful alcohol consumption.
“I’m very concerned about this because the White House should not be allowed to micromanage an FBI investigation,” Klobuchar said
“This is basically a job interview for the highest court in the land,” she stated. “One idea here is he simply was drinking more than he was saying over this time period and that he didn’t remember what happened. … I was actually trying to get to the truth.”
Democrats demanding an investigation into teenage drinking shows RINO Republicans like Jeff Flake and Susan Collins were taken for a ride.
Democrats and the media want an open-ended fishing expedition to drag the Kavanaugh vote past the midterms.
They gambled that they will win the Senate.
That will allow them to keep the seat open until the 2020 election.
