The FBI waged war on Donald Trump.
Under James Comey, the FBI worked to frame Trump for Russian collusion.
So that’s why nobody could believe what one FBI agent said about a Trump-related case.
FBI Agent Stuns CNN Host And Audience
Former FBI Assistant Director Chris Swecker appeared on CNN.
Host Brooke Baldwin asked him about Christine Ford’s demand for the FBI to investigate her claims that Judge Brett Kavanaugh tried to rape her when they were in high school.
The alleged assault took place 36 years ago.
Swecker said that because it was a local crime, it was outside the FBI’s scope.
“The FBI has no independent jurisdiction to open up a standalone investigation of rape allegations or assault allegations that may have taken place 36 years ago,” he said.
Swecker continued, “That is a local crime. Unless it involves a federal official or on federal land or has some federal nexus, there’s just jurisdiction to do it.”
Baldwin pressed Swecker on how the FBI could even investigate this case considering Ford says she doesn’t know when or where the attack took place.
She had also named two other witnesses whom she claimed were at the party, PJ Smythe and Mark Judge, and they both denied her account.
Ford’s Story Falls Apart
Swecker told Baldwin that, “There is not much there.”
“There just can’t be any forensic evidence. I would be shocked if they brought a garment forward that might have DNA or something like that,” Swecker said.
“But it’s all fairly thin. None of this would hold up in court,” he declared.
The CNN host noted that the FBI vetted Kavanaugh six times.
He held positions in the Bush White House and lower courts that required thorough FBI background checks.
An allegation like this would have turned up back then, as Swecker explained:
“Well, these background checks are called special inquiries. They are very thorough,” Swecker said. “They talk to employers. They do criminal checks. They do broader checks of public information that is out there. They interview people who have relevant information: associates, social network, people who are part of their social penumbra. These are the most thorough background checks that you can possibly do.”
Kavanaugh’s Accuser Turns Down Hearing
Ford ended up refusing to appear at a hearing.
She put out a statement through her lawyer where she claimed the hearing was “unfair.”
Republicans planned to only call Ford and Kavanaugh as witnesses.
Ford claimed other witnesses should be called.
But the other witnesses that came forward shot down Ford’s story.
They denied this ever took place or that they were at the party.
Critics believe Ford made up the story about Kavanaugh attacking her to try and hurt his confirmation.
She may have been attacked at a party in 1982.
But the evidence strongly suggests it was not by Kavanaugh.
