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.
