BUT, WHY?? Dems Move to Seal FBI Investigation
Yet in spite of the blatant attempts to assassinate his character and destroy him politically, Kavanaugh managed to clear the Senate Judiciary Committee on Friday, with the condition that the FBI open a limited investigation into the several allegations lodged against him.
All indications thus far from that investigation suggest that nothing new will be found to stop Kavanaugh from being confirmed, and now Democrats suddenly want to ensure that any new information discovered about Kavanaugh is kept secret so only members of the Senate and select staffers will be permitted to see what the FBI produces after concluding the probe.
.@SenFeinstein indicates that the FBI report on Kavanaugh should NOT be made public: “It would seem to me that if people are going to be identified this ought to be held very close and not."— Elizabeth Landers (@ElizLanders) October 2, 2018
"I think the investigation ought to be closely held," she reiterated.
CNN reporter Elizabeth Landers noted as much in a tweet quoting committee Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein. Landers tweeted, “(Feinstein) indicates that the FBI report on Kavanaugh should NOT be made public: ‘It would seem to me that if people are going to be identified this ought to be held very close and not. I think the investigation ought to be closely held,’ she (Feinstein) reiterated.”
Funny, Feinstein didn’t seem all that concerned about keeping people’s identities “closely held” when the letter sent to her from Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford was leaked to the media, nor did she exhibit any such concern when she publicly spoke about some of the other individuals named by Ford, or the other accusers who have popped out of the woodwork in Ford’s wake.
Reports suggest the FBI's investigation into Kavanaugh may be finished today.
