HEY DEMOCRATS, DON’T ASK FOR THINGS THEY MIGHT JUST COME TRUE …
This afternoon President Donald Trump ordered the FBI to conduct a supplemental investigation to update SCOTUS nominee Judge Kavanaugh’s file. The Democrats have been whining about this all during the confirmation hearings following their last minute hit job of springing Dr. Christine Ford’s 36 year old allegations. So what happens when the FBI finds out nothing? You know the Democrats are going to ask for another week and come up more with more outlandish accusations.
“Statement from President @realDonaldTrump: “I’ve ordered the FBI to conduct a supplemental investigation to update Judge Kavanaugh’s file. As the Senate has requested, this update must be limited in scope and completed in less than one week.”
From FOX News:
President Trump on Friday ordered the FBI to conduct a limited background investigation into the allegations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, as Senate Republicans delayed plans to hold votes on the nomination this weekend.
“I’ve ordered the FBI to conduct a supplemental investigation to update Judge Kavanaugh’s file,” Trump said in a statement. “As the Senate has requested, this update must be limited in scope and completed in less than one week.”
Trump’s order came after after several undecided senators whose votes are needed to confirm Kavanaugh called for a week-long FBI probe before a floor vote.
Be very afraid what you ask for libs … you just enrage the Republican base. Just in time for the 2018 midterms. Thank you. So a note to the Democrats, LEFT and MSM who have had their bluff called. We all know this is about delay, delay, delay. Soon, so will all of the American people. What is going to happen when the FBI questions Dr. Ford and not the ineffective Arizona sex crimes prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, who accomplished nothing.
What is going to happen when the FBI puts their stamp of approval on it finding that nothing happened and the only one who is sketchy with the details and facts is Dr. Ford?
In reality, this is a win-win for the Republicans, Trump and Kavanaugh. Barring they don’t find anything against Kavanaugh, which is hard to imagine, but if they did, who would actually want him on the SCOTUS. That being said, the FBI is about to give Trump’s SCOTUS nomination a seal of approval and the Democrats are going to be hard pressed to come up with more excuses. All of this is about to happen before the 2018 midterm elections and there are many red state Democrats that are going to have to justify to their voters why they voted against Trump’s nominee.
OKAY, BUT WHAT WILL DEMS DO WHEN THE FBI COMES UP WITH NOTHING?
The Senate Republicans have agreed to a one week delay on the SCOTUS vote for judge Brett Kavanaugh in order for the FBI to do a limited probe on allegations of sexual misconduct. What will Democrats do when the FBI finds bupkis? When the FBI clears Kavanaugh and says there is no there, there, will any of the Democrat on the judiciary committee change their vote? Of course not.
- Republicans in the Senate have agreed to delay a vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation for one week to allow for an FBI probe into allegations of sexual misconduct against the judge, according to a statement issued by the Senate Judiciary Committee Friday.
- “The supplemental FBI background investigation would be limited to current credible allegations against the nominee and must be completed no later than one week from today,” the statement said.
- The agreement reached Friday will hand over to the White House a final decision on whether the FBI conducts an investigation, though the president has signaled his willingness to go along with the GOP leadership.
Senate Republicans have agreed to delay a vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation for one week to allow for an FBI probe into allegations of sexual misconduct against the judge, according to a statement issued by the Senate Judiciary Committee Friday.
The committee requested that the White House “instruct the FBI to conduct a supplemental FBI background investigation with respect to” Kavanaugh’s nomination, the statement said.
The president agreed in short order. In a tweet posted by White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders Friday afternoon, the president said had ordered a supplemental investigation that would be “limited in scope and completed in less than one week.”
Democrats, be very careful what you ask for.
Who honestly thinks this is going to change Democrats minds on Kavanaugh. Even if he is cleared by the FBI, Democrats will obstruct. Two red state Democrats announce opposition to Kavanaugh, Sens. Joe Donnelly of Indiana and Jon Tester of Montana.
Figures … Flake Flakes and the Gutless, Spineless, Outging Flake Waffles & Calls for delay of Kavanaugh Vote to Allow for FBI Investigation
GO FIGURE …
There was some drama when Sen. Jeff Flake went missing from the meeting room and then came back — with a condition on his “yes” vote.
So here’s where things stand, as far as we can tell:
Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination has been approved. It now heads to the floor.
Sen. Jeff Flake voted yes on the grounds that he would get support to request a floor vote delay and a one week FBI investigation.
However, Flake has been given NO commitment by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
If McConnell moves forward without that investigation, Flake will vote against Kavanaugh.
Whether this happens or not rests with senators such as Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins, who have not announced how they plan to vote.
IT WOULD APPEAR THAT KAVANAUGH WILL GET A POSITIVE VOTE OUT OF COMMITTEE ALONG PARTY LINES …
Flake apologizes to Kavanaugh and Ford at Judiciary hearing yesterday: “The process is imperfect, but it’s the best the Judiciary Committee can do.”
WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) today released the following statement:
“After hearing more than 30 hours of testimony from Judge Kavanaugh earlier this month, I was prepared to support his nomination based on his view of the law and his record as a judge. In fact, I commented at the time that had he been nominated in another era, he would have likely received 90+ votes.
When Dr. Ford’s allegations against Judge Kavanaugh surfaced two weeks ago, I insisted that she be allowed to testify before the committee moved to a vote. Yesterday, we heard compelling testimony from Dr. Ford, as well as a persuasive response from Judge Kavanaugh. I wish that I could express the confidence that some of my colleagues have conveyed about what either did or did not happen in the early 1980s, but I left the hearing yesterday with as much doubt as certainty.
What I do know is that our system of justice affords a presumption of innocence to the accused, absent corroborating evidence. That is what binds us to the rule of law. While some may argue that a different standard should apply regarding the Senate’s advice and consent responsibilities, I believe that the constitution’s provisions of fairness and due process apply here as well.
I will vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh.”
We shall see. I will believe it when he finally makes the vote.
FORD-KAVANAUGH HEARING: Christine Ford Admits During Testimony that Senate Democrat Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein Recommended Activist Attorney Debra Katz to Her (VIDEO)
WHAT WE LEARNED YESTERDAY DURING SENATE JUDICIARY HEARING THAT IS TROUBLING …
From the Washington Free Beacon, it was revealed yesterday during the Ford-Kavanaugh judiciary hearing that the Senate ranking Democrat Dianne Feinstein’s office recommended the liberal activist attorney Debra Katz. HUH? How does this happen? From the Feinstein office that withheld the Ford letter from from the Republican chairman and the FBI comes this gem. Yeah, there was no political games going on here.
Rachel Mitchell, a prosecutor in the Maricopa County, Arizona Attorney’s Office who the committee selected to assist Republican lawmakers in questioning Ford, asked Ford in what she described as a “clean-up question” about her attorneys representing her through the process.
“Which of your two lawyers did Senator Feinstein’s office recommend,” Mitchell asked.
“The Katz firm,” Ford responded.
Ford is represented by Debra Katz and Michael Bromwich. Of the two, Katz, has been the public face of Ford’s team. She is the one who appeared on television to announce that Ford would testify publicly.
