Senate votes to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court
WASHINGTON DC — As the FBI wrapped up its week-long supplemental investigation, the White House, which has received the FBI report, now believes that the additional FBI interviews showed no corroboration of Christine Blasey Ford’s sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
In a statement, White House spokesperson Raj Shah said: “Senators have been given ample time to review the FBI investigation, and that the White House is confident the Senate will vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.”
Dr. Ford responds in a statement from her counsel, saying that the FBI investigation that did not include an interview of Dr. Ford – nor the witnesses who corroborate her testimony cannot be called an investigation, and that those directing the investigation were not interested in seeking the truth.
Meanwhile, conservative Filipino-Americans in Washington DC say they have always been confident Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination will be confirmed.
“I think those allegations have been considered, it happened 36 years ago… I believe that judge Kavanaugh is the perfect person for the Supreme Court and I believe that he will be confirmed.”
“Because there’s no corroboration, it could very easily have been a case of mistaken identity or there could have been some flaw in her memory.”
While Republicans say it was a thorough investigation — Democrats, believe otherwise.
“I wish the investigation was a little longer, if we’re all truly concerned about what really happened, I think the investigation should take its toll, no matter how short or long.”
In an article on Slate magazine, James Roche — Kavanaugh’s former roommate at Yale University in the 80’s said – the Kavanaugh lied under oath about his drinking and terms in his yearbook.
He claims Kavanaugh was “frequently incoherently drunk,” and Kavanaugh did black out regularly, although under oath, he said he did not.
Kavanaugh said that “boofing is farting,” and that the “devil’s triangle was a drinking game,” when in reality these yearbook terms have something to do with sex.
Senate judiciary committee chairman Chuck Grassley says it’s time to vote, while the committee’s top Democrat, Senator Dianne Feinstein calls the report the product of an incomplete investigation.
The Senate plans to vote to end the debate on the Kavanaugh nomination on Friday and a cloture or full Senate floor final vote is expected on Saturday.
