FBI Ends Investigation; Kavanaugh Vote Scheduled; Democrats Are Still Lying

Posted on | October 4, 2018 | Comments Off on FBI Ends Investigation; Kavanaugh Vote Scheduled; Democrats Are Still Lying

“I actually believe that Dr. Ford fabricated her testimony. I think she’s delusional. . . . There could be no corroboration, because nothing ever happened.”
Joe DiGenova, on Hannity, Oct. 3, 2018

We are within sight of the end of this three-week nightmare, which began Sept. 13 when Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein went public with the false sexual assault accusation against Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

Joe DiGenova was the only person on Fox News willing to say what we now know — it was all a lie, from start to finish. Judge Kavanaugh is not, and never was, a sexual predator, and Christine Blasey Ford’s story was never “credible,” no matter how many Democratic senators or media talking-heads repeated that word to describe her. The news roundup:

The prospects for Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation now rest on four swing senators who are carefully reviewing the FBI background report on sexual assault allegations against the Supreme Court nominee, as GOP leaders close ranks behind the embattled judge and one previously undecided Democrat comes out in opposition.
North Dakota Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, after staying on the fence for weeks, announced Thursday she will vote against Kavanaugh, citing in part his conduct at last week’s fiery Hill hearing. . . .
Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, who has stayed mum on her Kavanaugh stance, said Thursday that the bureau’s supplemental background probe “appears to be a very thorough investigation.” On Thursday afternoon, she remained in the Capitol building’s Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) reading the FBI’s report for more than an hour and a half. Senators are taking turns poring over the documents in the SCIF.
And Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., who originally requested the FBI re-open its investigation into the claims leveled against Kavanaugh by Christine Blasey Ford, agreed with Collins’ assessment.
“No new corroborative information came out of it,” Flake said. “Thus far, we’ve see no new credible corroboration — no new corroboration at all.” . . .
But senior GOP senators rallied around Kavanaugh at a press conference Thursday afternoon, vowing to press ahead with a series of votes starting Friday and blasting Democrats for their handling of the process.
“There are two things we know for sure. One thing is the FBI report did not corroborate any of the allegations against Judge Kavanaugh. Second … is there is no way anything we did would satisfy the Democrats. They’ve always got a reason why the goalpost needs to be moved further down the field,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said. . . .
Setting the stage, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, declared earlier Thursday that nothing in the FBI document changed his mind, and that it was time to vote to confirm Kavanaugh.
“I’ve now received a committee staff briefing on the FBI’s supplement to Judge Kavanaugh’s background investigation file,” Grassley said Thursday. “There’s nothing in it that we didn’t already know. These uncorroborated accusations have been unequivocally and repeatedly rejected by Judge Kavanaugh, and neither the Judiciary Committee nor the FBI could locate any third parties who can attest to any of the allegations.
“It’s time to vote,” Grassley added. “I’ll be voting to confirm Judge Kavanaugh.”

Chuck Schumer is still lying, but that’s not really news, is it?

During a press conference on Thursday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) stated that fears that the FBI would be limited from getting all the facts in its investigation of Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh “have been realized.”
Schumer said, “[W]e had many fears that this was a very limited process that would constrain the FBI from getting all the facts. Having received a thorough briefing on the documents, those fears have been realized.” . . .
Schumer added that he believes the White House “greatly constrained the investigation from the get-go.”

Let me tell you something: Chuck Schumer knows it was all a lie. He is one of the most dishonest people on the planet, and it is only the Senate custom of “collegiality” that prevents his Republican colleagues from denouncing him as the habitual liar he actually is. Thanks to Schumer and Feinstein, we have spent three weeks on a snipe hunt, seeking corroboration of a story that could not possibly be corroborated, because it never happened. Judge Kavanaugh’s good name has been trashed by Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) simply because Chuck Schumer hoped to turn this nomination into a weapon to help Democrats win the Senate in November. What was learned from the investigation Democrats demanded? Well, we learned that “Devil’s Triangle” is indeed a drinking game and “boof” is indeed a slang term for flatulence.

Extra police have been deployed at the Capitol to protect Republican Senators from the Soros-funded anti-Kavanaugh protest mobs. What else? The official Twitter account of the Senate Judiciary Committee had some blunt truth for Sen. Feinstein:

Nothing that the FBI did, and no concession Republicans might have offered, would have been sufficient to please the Democrats. This was all about stalling and smearing and propaganda — a disgrace to the Senate, but let’s not talk about disgraces to the Senate, eh? That calls to mind Ted Kennedy, and Mary Jo Kopechne could not be reached for comment.
