Here’s the deal. We’ll investigate whether Kavanaugh committed perjury when Feinstein agrees to sit down with her husband under oath and talk about the Chinese spy in her employ and if she gave any direction to Ford.
Via Fox News:
Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee used last week’s hearing over the accusations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to push a unified message: the FBI must investigate the allegations.
“If you’re very confident of your position, and you appear to be, why aren’t you also asking the FBI to investigate these claims?” California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the committee, pressed Kavanaugh during Thursday’s tense hearing. The next day, at GOP Sen. Jeff Flake’s urging, President Trump ordered the FBI to open such a “supplemental” background investigation.
But now, many Democrats are arguing that the probe is not enough, prompting accusations from Republicans that they’re already moving the goalposts.
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders wrote in a weekend letter that the FBI shouldn’t just probe the accusations – but should also conduct an investigation into whether Kavanaugh was honest during his hearing. He called for investigating whether Kavanaugh committed perjury, “given the very serious fact that lying to Congress is a federal crime.”
