i misunderstood your statement then 😛 sorry
If you look at prior SCOTUS confirmation votes the GOP didn't put up much fight against Dem nominees at all.
i thought you meant that the FBI not doing its job properly was a partisan thing
but yeah they are doing a poor job,
It should just be "Is there evidence? No, then its he-said, she-said, we can't judge that, so case closed"
I'm not even thinking about the specifics of Ford's testimony vs Kavanaugh's testimony
that's not the responsibility of the FBI!!!!!!!
I think that classified FBI report sent to the Senate on Tuesday was mostly an investigation of the smear campaign.
the FBI background checks do not reach conclusion, they inform the senate for them to reach a conclusion
I wonder how long an actual non-criminal investigation would have taken with proper heads up
You know, like in July.
short of time-travel,
Its near-impossible to go back 35 years and finding evidence for an initial investigation
When Ford first came forward to Senator Feinstein
a criminal investigation would have not been done by the fbi. for that ford must go to local police.
instead of less than 2 weeks from the hearing
Throwing pisss on people is not very nice.
It got ridiculous watching the Senate Dems plead for an investigation while Ford and Kavanaugh were sitting right there in front of them, under oath.
Really makes you think why they didn't plead for an investigation when the accusations were first made public <:TimThink:482277772497125378>
And why the first thing they demanded was a hearing <:TimThink:482277772497125378>
And why they kept delaying the hearing <:TimThink:482277772497125378>
because theres nothing, this is their desperate attempt to make a "last second delay" in the hopes originally to extend it past the mid-terms
They were holding it in order to drop a media bombshell after the committee hearings were over.
hoping they'd win, and be able to fully block it
And why they waited until the hearing to ask for an investigation <:TimThink:482277772497125378>
All this rhetoric is tiring to be honest
its just an excuse to filibuster
because thats not allowed anymore
Yeah, procedural obstruction.
The real sad part about this is that the dems may actually have a valid point about Kavanaugh's temperament, but it's list among all the ridiculous nonsense they tried to peddle
temperament, have you seen Maxine waters?
I'm so happy that I'm finally seeing definitive victories at things.
And not a constant string of theoretical things to hope for.
The only thing seperating waters and hitler is she's not in power
"This is a sign that americans really want.." etc etc.
Well Kavanaugh's nomination isn't a sure thing
The Dems were better off keeping things honest and making it all about muh abortion.
the motion to invoke cloture was 51-49
when is the vote starting?
in 1:40 hours?
