Democrats are calling for the FBI to investigate the accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, but this is something they are apparently not able to do. It’s not for the reason you may think, however.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) says he talked to the FBI about doing an investigation and the agency told him that there is simply nothing they can do at this point.
“The FBI has told me, ‘We don’t know how to help you. We don’t know where to go, we don’t know what town to go, we don’t know what month to look at, we’re not even sure about the year,” Graham told Fox News’ Martha MacCallum.
In order to conduct an investigation, the FBI would need actual facts.
That is something they do not have in this case.
Graham actually chastised the Democrats — particularly Sen. Dianne Feinstein — for holding the letter back for so long.
Graham asked, “If you really wanted on [an investigation], why didn’t you tell us in July when you first got this accusation?”
And that is really what all this comes down to.
The fact the information was delayed is proof positive Democrats have politicized this rather than looking out for this alleged victim, as they all claim.
The Ultimate Goal
The real and only goal Democrats had in bringing Ford forward is to delay the Kavanaugh vote or to force him to withdraw his nomination.
Had they really only had this woman’s interests at heart, the information would have been revealed as soon as Ford had sent that initial letter.
According to numerous reports, the FBI has stated prior even if the information had been provided earlier, though, it would not have made a difference.
Simply put, there are far too many holes in her story to grant an investigation.
Graham actually addressed that very issue.
“I’ve been a lawyer all my life. You couldn’t get a warrant based on this allegation,” Graham stated.
Watching Ford’s testimony, it appears as Democrats have gone overboard to make this woman seem as frail as possible.
However, she has already contradicted the facts on several occasions, such as how long her polygraph test took.
While it may not play well in the media, Republicans need to outright call Ford out on these facts so the truth comes out.
