As the battle to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court reached its zenith, Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) and then-Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) made an agreement which would allow for an FBI investigation into the sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh.
At the time, Flake insisted on a true investigation, saying, “It does no good to have an investigation that gives us more cover.”
Mr. Coons declared that “the FBI needs to be allowed to pursue all reasonable investigatory steps.”
However, now a pair of New York Times reporters working on a book about the Kavanaugh confirmation just published an article which found that the FBI investigation appears to have been nothing more than a sham.
This apparently was not the fault of FBI investigators; rather Senate Republicans who insisted on a rush job.
The result is a number of interviews not pursued to confirm the allegations of Deborah Ramirez, Kavanaugh’s Yale classmate who said that he exposed himself to her.
We as Americans were asked to put our faith in that investigation as the basis for allowing Kavanaugh to rise to the nation’s highest court under what had been a cloud of sexual misconduct.
If now we cannot have faith in that investigation which was supposed to have cleared him, perhaps now we can no longer have faith in Kavanaugh’s service on that high court.
