FBI WON'T Investigate Kavanaugh Following 11th-Hour Accusation
David Martosko, for the Daily Mail, reports:
The FBI is declining to investigate Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's connection to a Democratic senator's mysterious claim that troubling 'information' had come to her – information reportedly concerning sexual misconduct when he was in high school.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California said Thursday in a statement that she had referred her information to federal investigators, just a week before the U.S. Senate is scheduled to begin a series of votes on his nomination.
Feinstein is a liberal California Democrat who has called on her colleagues to slow down the march toward confirming President Donald Trump's pick to succeed Justice Anthony Kennedy.
The Washington Post reported Thursday evening that the FBI handed the senator's materials over to the White House instead of opening a probe, and considered it an update to his background check file.
The New York Times admitted that Feinstein received the cryptic letter about the unspecific allegations against Kavanaugh "this summer" – implying that she likely held onto it in an attempt to sabotage Republicans at the last possible moment.
This latest embarrassing spectacle for the Blue Team comes after Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) compared his grandstanding to that of Spartacus and Sen. Kalama Harris (D-Calif.) deceptively edited a video of the judge's testimony to boost her street cred with liberal activists.
