Seven Democratic Senators on Thursday said that newly released materials show the FBI failed to fully investigate sexual misconduct allegations against U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh when he was nominated to the court in 2018.

Kavanaugh, like all fine, upstanding republicans, is a vile POS.

This was known at the time. Witnesses reached out to the FBI. The FBI didn't return their calls.

Not interviewing the sole named witness under oath made it pretty damned obvious.

" Kavanaugh was the second of three jurists Republican Trump appointed to lifetime spots on the top court during his term, cementing a 6-3 conservative majority."

Here's the real butthurt. That ain't ever going away. These morons will be crying for decades.

I used to think Wray somehow avoided getting the stench of Orange Jabba on him, but this proves otherwise, and is ground for immediate termination and possible prosecution, Wray lied to Congress about this!

FBI: Dr Ford made the following allegations. How do you respond?

Judge: I have absolutely no recollection of anything even resembling what she described.

FBI: Interview is over.

Maybe the FBI should investigate if he ever used an F-bobm when he was in middle school. Or maybe the FBI can investigate Tara Reade's allegations.

Everybody used F bombs in middle school. Very few turned into rapists in college. But those who did shouldnt be on the supreme court, should they?

Then again, your cult is now pro-pandemic. Being pro-rapist wouldnt surprise me at all.

Connect the dots:

"In a new letter sent to the Senate, the FBI admits it never meaningfully investigated the claims against Brett Kavanaugh because it was only empowered to talk to people that were approved by the Trump White House."
twitter.com

"I saved his life," Trump said of Kavanaugh. "He wouldn't even be in a law firm. Who would have had him? Nobody. Totally disgraced. Only I saved him."

Fact is Kavanaugh has undergone multiple FBI background checks and has passed with flying colors every time. Too bad Avenetti is going to prison, otherwise he could fine another Juliee Swetnick.

Yes it is. Put Kavanaugh's drunk buddy under oath who was in the room with him and Blasey-Ford during the attempted assault. He says that he has to memory of what did or didn't happen but has never had to say it under penalty of law.

Kaiser's denial is limited to the fact she was not in the room where it allegedly happened. She only spoke to what occurred while the group was together, she had no knowledge of what happened outside of her presence.

""Simply put, Ms. Keyser does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without, Dr. Ford," said Howard Walsh, who said he has been "engaged in the limited capacity" of corresponding with the committee on behalf of Keyser."

"The FBI acknowledged receiving more than 4,500 tips during its background investigation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, prompting a new wave of criticism from Senate Democrats who have long questioned the bureau's vetting process."

"Not only did the FBI refuse to interview Dr. Ford or the corroborators listed in our letter to FBI Director Wray, it failed to act on the over 4,500 tips it received about then-nominee Kavanaugh," the attorneys said. "Instead, it handed the information over to the White House, allowing those who supported Kavanaugh to falsely claim that the FBI found no wrongdoing."

It has never been investigated properly so it was no litigated properly.

It was a sham.

He should have never been confirmed without being thoroughly investigated, but he was crammed through and you have to wonder why. There could have been a hundred other nominees that would not have that baggage with them. But that was the point...to have a justice that could be owned whether it be through blackmail for this or his gambling debts or his credit card bills that were all mysteriously paid off by someone.

When the most corrupt president nominates a corrupt justice and it is crammed through by a corrupt senate then the court becomes corrupt. There will always be a stain on the US for the last four years and this is just one of the numerous example of extreme corruption.

You love it because your guy won, but that is a sad pathetic way to judge what happened.

Good day.

Do the Dems really want to waste news cycles on something that can't be undone? Go after those who rammed him on to the court, get to work strengthening our razor thin majorities, get to work fighting the restrictive voter regulations that repub state legislators are enacting! Cheesh, the ways they find to keep fiddling while the repubs burn Rome to the ground is so typical and so insane.

My issue with Kavanaugh isn't his behavior when he was sowing his wild oats.

It's lying about it under oath about it as an adult. Misleading and deceptive answers about what Renate Alumnus, FFFF, Boof, and Devil's Triangle are.

How about prevented from happening in the future? This is as much about Trump, who says he wants to be president again and the GOP in general, as it is about Kavanaugh. Don't you think voters might be put off by yet another example of Team Trump and his GOP enablers circumventing a proper investigation when something as important as a SC seat was/is at stake?

GT-I understand your point but there's been infinite examples of bad and illegal governance by Team Trump and those whom it's possibly going to effect have already left the fold, imho. If we lose the House or Senate next year, it's all over. It's far easier to lure potential voters than it is to change a trumper's mind (sorry-bit of an oxymoron there....)

He was the most thoroughly scrutinized nominee in this country's history. The amount of written and oral questions his team answered for the Senate judiciary committee was unprecedented. The purpose of what went on was to stall the proceedings as long as possible to go past the midterms. That's what this was all about. The fact that so many bought into absurd conspiracy theories is just a by-product of that.

"He was the most thoroughly scrutinized nominee in this country's history."

That's a complete lie. The FBI got two weeks to investigate him. Hell, I get at least a month I do backgrounds on police applicants who are not getting lifetime appointments. The FBI was forbidden to talk to his accuser from college, where judge Keg is accused of regularly exposing himself to women in his dorm, which is a crime, and in my state, would make him a registered sex offender, not a SCOTUS justice. This behavior attributed to Drunky McPukesboes smacks of serial sex offenses. He's shown indications that he commits unlawful sexual acts while drunk; he admits that he still likes beer; what else has he done while drunk? Dotard knew what the FBI scraped up that was never made public; why did he say that he saved Judge Keg's career, that no law firm would have touched him? That smacks of kompromat.

Also, I never heard who paid off his hundreds of dollars of outstanding debt when he was appointed to SCOTUS. One day he had a massive debt; the next day, poof. Where did it go? Who owns him?

You're entitled to your own opinions but not your own facts.

The Senate committee submitted (and all were answered) far more questions and document requests than any other supreme court justice in history. He'd been through 3 separate FBI background checks prior to being confirmed.

He was more scrutinized than any of his peers.

People were coming out of the woodwork with blatantly false allegations (Swetnick, et al) and Democrats expected the FBI to dedicate hundreds of hours to each and every ridiculous allegation.

Please point out a Supreme Court justice that received more Senate scrutiny than Kavanaugh and please point out how he got some kind of special treatment that was unique - how he was treated differently than any other SCOTUS nominee.

In the traditions of Clarence Thomas, Kavenaugh serves in the SC or the United States.

"Please point out a Supreme Court justice that received more Senate scrutiny than Kavanaugh and please point out how he got some kind of special treatment that was unique - how he was treated differently than any other SCOTUS nominee."

The FBI knew about the things he had done but failed to report them to the Senate or to the other members of the court.

Thankfully, it's been answered. He bought a bunch of sporting events tickets for him and some friends. He fronted the money and his friends paid him back. It's not uncommon for multiple people to share season ticket packages. Typically, if it's all done under one name additional perks come with it like preferred parking because it looks as if that 1 person spent a ton of money when in reality the costs were spread.

Kavanaugh didn't block anything. Or did anyone else. Ford's allegations were over 30 years old with ZERO substantiating evidence. This is beyond stupid. Kavanaugh isn't leaving the court until he decides he wants to leave the court. Get used to it.
