News of Brett Kavanaugh, The Virgin Mayor of Keg City

(Hat tip: Scissorhead D-Cap)

If Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse has his way, the FBI will have to explain themselves regarding the vetting of then-judge Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court:

The FBI is facing new scrutiny for its 2018 background check of Brett Kavanaugh, the supreme court justice, after a lawmaker suggested that the investigation may have been “fake”.

Sheldon Whitehouse, a Democratic senator and former prosecutor who serves on the judiciary committee, is calling on the newly-confirmed attorney general, Merrick Garland, to help facilitate “proper oversight” by the Senate into questions about how thoroughly the FBI investigated Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearing.

There was so much shadiness in that whole nomination, it’s hard to know where to start.

Among the concerns listed in Whitehouse’s letter to Garland are allegations that some witnesses who wanted to share their accounts with the FBI could not find anyone at the bureau who would accept their testimony and that it had not assigned any individual to accept or gather evidence.

“This was unique behavior in my experience, as the Bureau is usually amenable to information and evidence; but in this matter the shutters were closed, the drawbridge drawn up, and there was no point of entry by which members of the public or Congress could provide information to the FBI,” Whitehouse said.

I think we all remember the tip line, right?

He added that, once the FBI decided to create a “tip line”, senators were not given any information on how or whether new allegations were processed and evaluated. While senators’ brief review of the allegations gathered by the tip line showed a “stack” of information had come in, there was no further explanation on the steps that had been taken to review the information, Whitehouse said.

“This ‘tip line’ appears to have operated more like a garbage chute, with everything that came down the chute consigned without review to the figurative dumpster,” he said.

The most memorable part of the confirmation hearings were the accusations from Christine Blasey Ford:

The supreme court justice was accused of sexual assault by Christine Blasey Ford and faced several other allegations of misconduct following Ford’s harrowing testimony of an alleged assault when she and Kavanaugh were in high school.

I forgot this part:

The FBI was called to investigate the allegations during the Senate confirmation process but was later accused by some Democratic senators of conducting an incomplete background check. For example, two key witnesses – Ford and Kavanaugh – were never interviewed as part of the inquiry.

The FBI did not respond to a request for comment. The DOJ did not respond to a request for comment.

      Kav’s financials were ignored to focus on an allegation of sexual assault that could never be proven. Dude had a million dollar house, four daughters, and YUUUUGE credit card debt.

      Kav supported all of this on a $200K salary.

      These are items that can be checked out, verified, and used to hit him with perjury, resulting in his possible resignation.
