Recall the deal brokered by Senators Jeff Flake (R, AZ) and his BFF Chris Coons (R, DE) wherein Flake would sell his vote for confirmation of Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh in return for a new, week-long FBI investigation specifically into Dr Christine Blasey Ford’s (and one other woman’s) accusation of sexual assault against Kavanaugh. Recall further that, no sooner had the Senate Judiciary Committee completed its committee vote on the confirmation, Coons was talking to the press about how the FBI should not be limited; the agents should be free to investigate any further allegations that might be generated come up during that week.
But that deal which, as The Wall Street Journal put it in Sunday’s edition,
was intended to satisfy concerns that allegations against Judge Kavanaugh weren’t being fully vetted before the full Senate took up his nomination[,]
is subject to further welshing by Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Senator Dianne Feinstein (D, CA):
The FBI’s hands must not be tied in this investigation….
This just confirms how worthless commitments made by Progressive-Democrats are. Feinstein was a participant in the Flake-Coons negotiations; she knew the parameters of the agreement when she agreed to it. Now she’s busily reneging.
Remember the trustworthiness of Progressive-Democrats as you contemplate your vote next month. And do go vote.
