Democrats have been doing their darndest to stop Brett Kavanaugh from being confirmed to the Supreme Court. Originally it was the late leak of Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations that Kavanaugh attempted to rape her at a high school get-together. Others came forward alleging Kavanaugh exposed himself, and that he had something to do with the drugging & gang-raping of teen girls at parties.
After Kavanaugh & Ford testified before the Senate, Democrats said that Kavanaugh’s demeanor disqualified him to be a Supreme Court justice because he angrily defended himself against the smears & allegations.
When Senator Jeff Flake said that he would only vote to confirm Kavanaugh if there was a one-week investigation by the FBI into the allegations, Democrats at first seemed OK with it. Now that the FBI has concluded its investigation and found nothing incriminating, Democrats are crying foul saying that the FBI investigation wasn’t allowed enough time to do its job.
President Trump said to watch out for this about a week ago.
Wow! Just starting to hear the Democrats, who are only thinking Obstruct and Delay, are starting to put out the word that the “time” and “scope” of FBI looking into Judge Kavanaugh and witnesses is not enough. Hello! For them, it will never be enough – stay tuned and watch!

And here are some reactions by Dems on social media today.
The FBI report on Judge Kavanaugh is entirely incomplete and insufficient. There are dozens of witnesses who have not been interviewed. This is for a lifetime appointment. The American people deserve to have all the facts.

This process was rigged to protect Judge Kavanaugh & prevent the FBI from conducting a thorough investigation. If this ends up being jammed through, there will be tremendous anger & backlash from women & survivors across the country.

This process was wrapped up in just *5 days,* despite the many witnesses pleading to share relevant information who were ignored by the FBI.

I read the FBI report. This whole thing is a sham. This stunted, strangled investigation was designed to provide cover, not to provide the truth.

If #Kavanaugh has nothing to hide, it shouldn’t matter if the FBI takes the time it needs to fully investigate before any confirmation hearing takes place.
And he should be calling for that if he had any judicial integrity.

Apparently Mad Magazine is getting into politics now, also.
We spent more time looking for the office copy of Beverly Hills Ninja than the FBI spent investigating Brett Kavanaugh, and only one of those two things is being nominated for the Supreme Court.

Democrats are obviously just trying to stall the confirmation vote. The FBI has thousands of employees, and often work on deadlines. They had plenty of time to conduct a proper investigation.
There was another investigation a few years ago that very important, also. Democrats seem to forget about this one.
On October 28th, 2016, then FBI Director James Comey announced that the FBI would investigate new emails found on Anthony Weiner’s laptop. The emails were to & from Hillary Clinton’s close aide, Huma Abedin.
The FBI had concluded the original investigation into Hillary’s use of a private server in July of 2016 but would re-open it with a little less than a week until the presidential election. The new investigation concluded on November 6th, two days before voters went to the polls.
NBC News reported:
“FBI Director James Comey said Sunday that the bureau won’t change the conclusion it made in July after it examined newly revealed emails related to the Hillary Clinton probe.
“Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton,” Comey wrote in a letter to 16 members of Congress.
The investigative team had “been working around the clock to process and review” emails found on former New York congressman Anthony Weiner’s laptop — using a program that targeted only the emails to and from Clinton’s closest aide, Huma Abedin, within the time when Clinton was secretary of state.
In a statement, a Justice Department spokesman said, “The Department of Justice and the FBI dedicated all necessary resources to conduct this review expeditiously.”
The news comes after the FBI announced it would review a new batch of emails that appeared to be “pertinent” to the investigation that was suspended in July, which had looked into Clinton’s use of a private server.
Multiple federal sources told NBC News that the emails were found as a part of an ongoing probe into Weiner’s alleged illicit communication with an underage girl.
FBI Dir just informed us "Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Sec Clinton"

On the Clinton campaign’s plane, spokeswoman Jennifer Palmieri said she was “glad to see” that Comey had affirmed the conclusion reached in July and that the “matter is resolved.”
Democrats and Republicans had starkly different reactions, although both sides indicated that, beyond Clinton’s vindication, the FBI still had much to resolve.
“In the days that come, we will have many questions about the FBI’s handling of this investigation,” said John Conyers Jr. of Michigan, ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee. “In the meantime, however, I welcome this news confirming again that no charges are warranted in this matter.””
The FBI’s renewed investigation had a little over a week to be completed so as not to interfere with the 2016 election. They got the job done. Even Hillary’s campaign was “glad” it was over & that the FBI found no evidence of wrongdoing.
Well, the 7th FBI investigation into Kavanaugh took just about as much time as the 2nd one into Hillary’s use of a private server. Democrats were OK with one, but not with the other because they don’t like the outcome.
It’s sheer hypocrisy and even more proof that this whole charade was an attempt by Democrats to derail Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
