Virginia Senator Tim Kaine harshly criticized today’s development that the FBI had finished up their investigation into the sexual assault allegations brought against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by former high school classmate Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. Busy on Twitter, Kaine called the days-long federal investigation a “sham.” Presumably, different than South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham’s “sham” of the Democrat’s treatment of Judge Kavanaugh.
At 3:00 a.m. Thursday morning, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley received the report from the bureau two days before last week’s agreed upon deadline. The FBI only made one copy to mitigate the possibility of a leak to the media, with one-hour scheduled viewings of the investigation documents taken by each on the committee in order of seniority.
The Iowa Republican said of the FBI’s probe into the life of Judge Kavanaugh: “no misconduct found”
Kaine was textually upset about there being just a single copy of the report – even though that just one was used to protect extraordinarily personal information.
The Virginia Democrat argued that the FBI should have investigated for a longer period of time, which would have attempted a delay in defiance of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s file for cloture Thursday. Earlier in the day, the Kentucky Republican reiterated that GOP senators will not be bullied by anti-Kavanaugh protesters that made the way into the building to cause chaos in the upper chamber.
Since the FBI report into Judge Kavanaugh’s life was not made public, prohibiting radical protesters from causing further havoc, Kaine found that to be an “insult to Americans.”
Even though Democrats got their FBI investigation, Kaine still blames Republicans for trying to push forth for a vote to end the unprecedented, now infamous confirmation hearings.
Currently, there three key swing votes among Republicans, Arizona’s Jeff Flake, Maine’s Susan Collins, and Alaska’s Lisa Murkowski, all of whom expressed some level of satisfaction of the reported “thorough” investigation. A floor vote could happen anytime between now and Sunday.
