The FBI is in the process of wrapping up their background investigation into Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
Democrats pressed them to expand the scope of the inquiry.
And the FBI left jaws on the ground with how they responded.
Democrats are now demanding the FBI investigate Kavanaugh’s teenage drinking habits.
They are in a desperate push to delay the vote on his confirmation as long as possible.
They got some bad news.
The FBI is not going to go on a fishing expedition into Kavanaugh’s drinking.
The Daily Caller reports:
The FBI is unlikely to investigate Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s high school and college drinking patterns, as Senate Democrats charge he misled lawmakers about the extent of his alcohol use as a young man.
Though the scope of the inquiry could expand at any time, Democrats are pushing the bureau to pursue the matter as former Kavanaugh confidants allege in the press that the judge was not forthcoming about his adolescent boozing during his testimony to the Senate.
Certain questions as to Kavanaugh’s alcohol consumption will likely arise, as the allegations of Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez, and Julie Swetnick all broach heavy drinking. These questions are unlikely to serve as the basis for a separate inquiry, people familiar with the matter told The Washington Post.
Several of the judge’s contemporaries at Yale have given accounts in the press indicating that he drank to the point of “blacking out” as an undergraduate, contradicting testimony he gave the Senate Judiciary Committee. Chad Ludington, a professor at North Carolina State University who went to college with Kavanaugh, cast him as a sloppy, angry drunk.
The committee already referred one false accuser for criminal prosecution.
Many Trump supporters believe Christine Blasey Ford should also be investigated for lying under oath.
