i misunderstood your statement then 😛 sorry

2018-10-06 18:09:28 UTC  

If you look at prior SCOTUS confirmation votes the GOP didn't put up much fight against Dem nominees at all.

2018-10-06 18:09:43 UTC  

i thought you meant that the FBI not doing its job properly was a partisan thing

2018-10-06 18:10:22 UTC  

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"

2018-10-06 18:11:16 UTC  

I'm not even thinking about the specifics of Ford's testimony vs Kavanaugh's testimony

2018-10-06 18:11:17 UTC  

that's not the responsibility of the FBI!!!!!!!

2018-10-06 18:11:20 UTC  

I think that classified FBI report sent to the Senate on Tuesday was mostly an investigation of the smear campaign.

2018-10-06 18:11:52 UTC  

the FBI background checks do not reach conclusion, they inform the senate for them to reach a conclusion

2018-10-06 18:11:59 UTC  

I wonder how long an actual non-criminal investigation would have taken with proper heads up

2018-10-06 18:12:06 UTC  

You know, like in July.

2018-10-06 18:12:11 UTC  

short of time-travel,

Its near-impossible to go back 35 years and finding evidence for an initial investigation

2018-10-06 18:12:18 UTC  

When Ford first came forward to Senator Feinstein

2018-10-06 18:12:34 UTC  

a criminal investigation would have not been done by the fbi. for that ford must go to local police.

2018-10-06 18:12:34 UTC  


2018-10-06 18:12:36 UTC  

instead of less than 2 weeks from the hearing

2018-10-06 18:12:40 UTC  

I know

2018-10-06 18:12:47 UTC  

Throwing pisss on people is not very nice.

2018-10-06 18:13:18 UTC  

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.

2018-10-06 18:13:59 UTC  

Really makes you think why they didn't plead for an investigation when the accusations were first made public <:TimThink:482277772497125378>

2018-10-06 18:14:26 UTC  

And why the first thing they demanded was a hearing <:TimThink:482277772497125378>

2018-10-06 18:14:36 UTC  

And why they kept delaying the hearing <:TimThink:482277772497125378>

2018-10-06 18:14:39 UTC  

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

2018-10-06 18:14:43 UTC  

They were holding it in order to drop a media bombshell after the committee hearings were over.

2018-10-06 18:14:44 UTC  

hoping they'd win, and be able to fully block it

2018-10-06 18:14:53 UTC  

And why they waited until the hearing to ask for an investigation <:TimThink:482277772497125378>

2018-10-06 18:15:46 UTC  

All this rhetoric is tiring to be honest

2018-10-06 18:15:59 UTC  

its just an excuse to filibuster

2018-10-06 18:16:02 UTC  

because thats not allowed anymore

2018-10-06 18:16:27 UTC  

Yeah, procedural obstruction.

2018-10-06 18:17:02 UTC  

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

2018-10-06 18:17:10 UTC  


2018-10-06 18:17:22 UTC  

temperament, have you seen Maxine waters?

2018-10-06 18:17:33 UTC  

I'm so happy that I'm finally seeing definitive victories at things.

2018-10-06 18:17:40 UTC  

And not a constant string of theoretical things to hope for.

2018-10-06 18:17:48 UTC  

The only thing seperating waters and hitler is she's not in power

2018-10-06 18:17:49 UTC  

"This is a sign that americans really want.." etc etc.

2018-10-06 18:17:56 UTC  

Well Kavanaugh's nomination isn't a sure thing

2018-10-06 18:17:59 UTC  

The Dems were better off keeping things honest and making it all about muh abortion.

2018-10-06 18:18:05 UTC  

the motion to invoke cloture was 51-49

2018-10-06 18:18:08 UTC
