White House and Donald Trump Order Sham Investigation by FBI: no questions about Kavanaugh’s drinking history, no look at Swetnick gang-rape claims; he is not qualified even before the sex-abuse claims.

2018-09-29

NBC news has reported online tonight, via the Microsoft News app, that the White House is ordering limitations on whom the FBI can question and what questions they can ask.  In short, the FBI is completely prohibited from investigating the allegations of Julie Swetnick, who claimed that she saw Brett Kavanaugh in line at a gang-rape that was going on in the bedroom of a friend’s house… and also claimed that she herself was raped with the aid of a drug, although Kavanaugh was not among her rapists.  In addition, the FBI is not to make comparisons of the drinking history that Kavanaugh claims and the much heavier drinking that his room-mates and others allege.

These restrictions are a pure partisan attempt to hobble the FBI’s investigations of allegations of sexual misconduct by Brett Kavanaugh.  Although the FBI will be able to question Mark Judge, who claims to remember no such incident, they will not be able to make wider inquiries of individuals not on the short list, nor of new individuals whose names come up in the course of their work.  There is a significant likelihood that the FBI will miss bad conduct that is not alleged by the two main accusers and heavy drinking that the nominee has been trying to hide despite direct questions from Democratic Senators.  Kavanaugh met the questions about his drinking with angry cross-questions, such as, “How much do you drink, Senator?” that never answered the direct query at hand, viz: just how much beer have you had to drink at various times in your life?

Under these circumstances, the Democratic Party’s position cannot waver: Kavanaugh has lied on multiple occasions during his nomination hearings and does not deserve to be a Supreme Court judge because of his lack of candor, lack of temperamental restraint, and partisanship.  The accusations of sexual misconduct are serious but need not be proven in rejecting his nomination because he even without the accusations, he does not meet the high standards expected of a Supreme Court Justice.
