    Update on Feinstein’s mystery letter: FBI doesn’t plan to investigate Kavanaugh, will refer matter to White House


They don’t plan to investigate Kavanaugh now, is how WaPo phrases it. But given how incredibly high Kavanaugh’s public profile is, they’d naturally feel heavy pressure to investigate if they had any reason to believe there was something to the claims in the letter. Imagine the FBI standing down for the boss’s Supreme Court nominee on a matter as grave as sexual misconduct only to have it come out later that there was probable cause all along to believe something had happened. The last thing the Bureau needs at this point is another supercharged accusation of scandal and politicization, this time involving looking the other way at a sex offense to protect the president’s fair-haired boy.

Now try to imagine the political clusterfark involved in the House and Senate having to figure out later whether to impeach Kavanaugh as a justice because of new details about the incident that the FBI *could* have discovered if it had investigated right now, before he was confirmed. Far better for them that they vet this before he’s on the bench.

All of which makes me think there isn’t anything there.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has declined to investigate Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh over allegations sent to them by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA).

Matt Zapotosky of The Washington Post quoted an FBI official as saying: “Upon receipt of the information on the night of September 12, we included it as part of Judge Kavanaugh’s background file, as per the standard process.” He also reported that the agency was not opening a criminal investigation into what Kavanaugh may or may not have done as a high school student.

Democrats are going to try anything to sink Judge Kavanaugh's nomination to SCOTUS. 

Sounds a little like the Roy Moore treatment.  Hey, it worked before; why not do it again?  Maybe the Dems should just go out and find a few more women to come forward and make bogus claims about the judge.

Kavanaugh has lead a remarkably upright life if the worst they can find on him is a prank when he was 17.  Especially considering how much time he has spent in public service.

"Old man can't is dead.  I helped bury him."  Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas quoting his grandfather.

Don't tell anybody but I dipped the tips of the girl who sat in front of me in fourth grade's pigtails in my bottle of ink!
