A graphic reminder of just how little the FBI actually investigated allegations against Kavanaugh
The Washington Post has just one of many stories this morning pointing out just how much evidence, and how many witnesses, the FBI left on the table when they conducted this quick investigation into allegations of sexual assault by Brett Kavanaugh. Republican Senator Chuck Grassley spoke up this morning with a lie so blatant that, even in a nest of lies, it bears pointing out.
Grassley: Neither the Judiciary Committee nor the FBI could locate any third parties who can attest to any of the allegations.
This is so not-true that the word “lie” seems inadequate. Both the Committee and the FBI were more than aware of witnesses—like theology professor Kenneth Appold—who were eager to talk about their knowledge of Kavanaugh’s assault on Deborah Ramirez. He wasn’t the only one. At least two other people identified as classmates of Kavanaugh attempted to contact the FBI. So did Kavanaugh’s freshman roommate. So did people who were part of the social circle that contained both Kavanaugh and Ramirez. Ramirez herself provided the FBI with over 20 names for people who could confirm all or part of her story … neither the Committee nor the FBI spoke to a single one of them.
