BRETT KAVANAUGH WILL BE CONFIRMED

White House Finds No Support in FBI Report for Claims Against Kavanaugh

WASHINGTON—The White House has found no corroboration of the allegations of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh after examining interview reports from the FBI’s latest probe into the judge’s background, according to people familiar with the matter.

It was unclear whether the White House, which for weeks has raised doubts about the allegations, had completed its review of the FBI interview reports. Officials were expected to be sending the FBI report to the Senate Judiciary Committee late Wednesday.

Still, the White House’s conclusions from the report are not definitive at this point in the confirmation process. Senators who will decide Mr. Kavanaugh’s fate are set to review the findings on Thursday, and some of them may draw different conclusions.

The result could leave senators in much the same position as last week—faced with two witnesses providing mutually exclusive accounts and forced to decide between them. The investigation, which concluded two days before its Friday deadline, has faced mounting criticism in recent days from Democrats who have said the probe wasn’t appropriately comprehensive. Investigators spoke to one of the three women who made accusations of sexual misconduct against Judge Kavanaugh.

A White House spokesman declined to comment.

President Trump late Wednesday tweeted praise for his Supreme Court nominee. “Wow, such enthusiasm and energy for Judge Brett Kavanaugh,” he wrote, calling the judge “a fine man and great intellect.”

Republicans have said the extended background check by the Federal Bureau of Investigation was a concession to Democrats and wavering Republicans, who demanded it and said its completion without a major revelation should allow Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination to proceed to a Senate vote. Democratic senators on the Judiciary Committee, where Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination hearings were heard, have claimed that the White House imposed too many restrictions on who the FBI could interview—they didn’t talk to Christine Blasey Ford, Judge Kavanaugh’s accuser, for instance—to make their inquiry’s findings credible.

In an emotional hearing last Thursday, senators heard from Judge Kavanaugh and from Dr. Ford, the California psychology professor who accuses him of assaulting her when they were teenagers. Judge Kavanaugh denies the allegation.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) took a step Wednesday night to set up a Friday procedural vote on Judge Kavanaugh. He said the Senate would later Wednesday receive the FBI supplemental background investigation into Judge Kavanaugh, giving senators enough time to review the bureau’s findings before voting later this week.

Senators were expected to study the report at a secure location on Thursday. Three uncommitted Republicans—Jeff Flake of Arizona, Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska—have said the FBI report would factor significantly into their decision.

Republicans have a narrow 51-49 edge in the Senate, so two defections would doom the nomination. In the event of a 50-50 tie, Vice President Mike Pence would cast a deciding vote on Judge Kavanaugh’s behalf.

The FBI probe was launched last Friday as the Judiciary Committee prepared to vote on sending Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Senate floor. Mr. Flake voted yes, but asked for the FBI to be given up to a week for a supplemental background check into allegations by Dr. Ford and another accuser, Deborah Ramirez, who says Judge Kavanaugh exposed himself to her in college.

Judge Kavanaugh also denies Ms. Ramirez’s allegations, saying he has never sexually assaulted anyone and characterizing the assertions as a political smear.

FBI agents have interviewed three people Dr. Ford said were at the social gathering where the alleged assault took place. The bureau also questioned two friends Judge Kavanaugh named in his 1982 calendar, Tim Gaudette and Chris Garrett, known as “Squi,” according to their lawyers.

Democrats have already signaled they consider the FBI investigation insufficient. The decision not to interview Judge Kavanaugh and Dr. Ford, among others, “raises serious concerns that this is not a credible investigation,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

An attorney for Dr. Ford late Wednesday criticized the probe. “An FBI supplemental background investigation that did not include an interview of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford—nor the witnesses who corroborate her testimony—cannot be called an investigation,” the attorney said. “We are profoundly disappointed that after the tremendous sacrifice she made in coming forward, those directing the FBI investigation were not interested in seeking the truth.”

Democrats also said they were concerned about Judge Kavanaugh for reasons beyond the sexual-assault allegation, including his partisan attacks at last Thursday’s hearing.

GOP leaders say the renewed investigation wasn’t necessary, given that Judge Kavanaugh had already been subjected to several FBI background checks.

Whether Judge Kavanaugh is confirmed or rejected, the fight over his nomination has added fuel to the country’s sharp political divide. It has damaged relationships in the Senate, prompted predictions of nasty confirmation fights in the future, and spurred warnings about the potential politicization of the Supreme Court.

“This cannot be the new normal, because it will destroy the ability of people to come forward and be judges,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) said Wednesday at an event sponsored by the Atlantic magazine. “What goes around comes around.”

It was a bullshit investigation anyway, so this is not surprising. Kavanaugh is without a doubt a liar. And most likely a sex offender.

Rest in Peace Bettie Boo. See u soon.

If Kavanaugh is confirmed, that will be a curse to the repub party, because there will be a major, blue wave, so many repubs better be prepared to lose their seats.

And will always be seen as one. That confirmation will only send a message from the repub senators on that committee who vote Kavanaugh in, that if you have an Ivy League background or wealthy, then it is okay to commit sexual assaults against women, whether in the past or present, because they will give you a pass.

No evidence. No witnesses. Dr. Fraud can’t even remember basic details about her story.
None of y’all are worried about some criminal case! Y’all just want to ruin a man and his family’s lives because he’s a Conservative

Good thing President Trump has a damn backbone and didn’t bend over to these idiots

Brett Kavanaugh will be confirmed. Cry some more.

It is a political smear campaign as 2Elijah has pointed out. Millions has been spent on advertising and if you think the people that put all that money into Hillary aren't behind the smear campaign you are a fool. They lost millions on her failed campaign it is a double down and guess is she is going to run again.

I hope she runs again. Then Trump 100% chance will be re-elected.
Even if she don’t, who do they have that will appeal to rational Americans who aren’t degenerates?? NO ONE. Lmao

Or find someone that likes to fuck his own daughter? Or someone that mocks the disabled? Or find someone that mocks gold star families? Surely we can find a democratic pig to run against the biggest pig in american history.

LIAR. I never said that. The repubs in that committee are the ones smearing the Dems. The repubs on that committee don’t want to believe Ms. Ford. They support a man who has been accused by 3 women for sexual harassment acts. Many repubs will lose their seats if they vote to confirm Kavanaugh. Be prepared for the Blue wave.

Polk man arrested for threatening to kill members of Congress if Kavanaugh not confirmed

Source: WFTS-TV

TWINTER HAVEN. Fla. — Deputies arrested a Winter Haven man after he threatened to kill members of Congress and their families on Facebook if Brett Kavanaugh wasn't confirmed to the Supreme Court.

James Patrick, 53, was arrested Thursday by the Polk County Sheriff's Office after they received tips about his threatening posts.

"Within five hours of receiving an email tip about the posts, our detectives investigated it, obtained an arrest warrant and search warrant, and took the suspect into custody without incident," Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said. "People need to calm down, and stop making threats of violence - we will not tolerate it. Anyone who threatens to shoot or kill any public servant or law enforcement officer will go to jail immediately."

Along with threatening members of Congress, Patrick threatened to shoot any local or federal law enforcement that tried to stop him — alongside a picture of a bullet.

They can’t.
They’re just unable to accept the fact that 3 or 4 people (or how many it is) in this forum aren’t totally far-left and aren’t afraid to speak up.
