Democrats got their wish.
The FBI launched a one-week investigation into allegations that Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted two women.
And when they finished, the FBI revealed one thing about the investigation that no one could believe.
Democrats Move The Goal Posts
At first, Democrats cheered RINO Republican Jeff Flake joining them in demanding a one week pause so the FBI could investigate Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations against Judge Kavanaugh.
But that soon turned to rage.
Democrats whined that the FBI was not digging into Kavanaugh’s high school and college drinking habits.
In a background investigation, the FBI is given a list of witnesses.
They treat those who ask for the investigation like a client and follow their scope.
In this case, the White House told them to interview the three other witnesses Christine Ford claimed were at the party, as well as Deborah Ramirez, who was the second woman to make flimsy allegations against Kavanaugh.
Democrats claimed that was not enough.
Minnesota Democrat Amy Klobuchar complained on CNN that, “You can’t interview this person, you can’t look at this time period, you can only look at these people from one side of the street from when they were growing up.”
“I mean, come on,” she finished.
Democrats on the Judiciary Committee sent a letter to the FBI listing 24 additional witnesses they wanted the Bureau to interview.
They wanted the FBI to dig up dirt on Kavanaugh’s drinking to push the fake news narrative that he lied under oath.
Kavanaugh said he sometimes drank to excess but never blacked out.
Democrats and their allies in the fake news media claimed that he lied about never getting drunk.
Democrats Get Bad News About FBI Probe
Democrats learned their plan failed.
The FBI expects to finish their probe late Wednesday or early Thursday.
In addition, they would not go on a fishing expedition on Kavanaugh’s teenage drinking.
Republicans believe this will allow them to begin voting on Kavanaugh on Friday.
CNN’s Manu Raj tweeted:
Emerging from a GOP lunch, Corker says they were told it’s “likely” they will receive FBI interview notes from Kavanaugh probe this afternoon, which senators could then review in a secure location.
He said precise vote timing is unclear but the plan is still to vote this week.
Several other GOP senators said it’s still unclear when they will receive the FBI reports, suggesting it could slip til tomorrow.
But there is one simple truth about this matter.
Democrats don’t care what is in the FBI report.
New Jersey Democrat Cory Booker said it does not matter if Kavanaugh is “guilty or innocent.”
They just want to hold the seat open until the 2020 election.
Their gamble is that the Democrat candidate defeats Trump and picks Kennedy’s replacement.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer would also quickly retire allowing the new Democrat President to replace them with younger justices.
That would allow them to cement a liberal majority on the court for generations.
