The FBI has been charged by the White House with investigating the wrong thing. The agency should not be investigating if Brett Kavanaugh assaulted Chrsitine Blasey Ford but rather if Brett Kavanaugh lied under oath to Congress. Going into the FBI investigation, it was clear that we already knew all that would be told about the charge of that assault. What needs to be investigated is if someone who wants very much to be on the Supreme Court of the United States evades the truth and lies.
The FBI was told by the White House to not interview Christine Blasey Ford because to interview her would require also interviewing Brett Kavanaugh. The FBI investigators , much more skilled in questioning than the Senators who questioned Brett Kavanaugh, would have found evidence that his answers were not verifiable.
An article in Current Affairs goes through Brett Kavanaugh’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on September 27, 2018 and illustrates the specifics of how Brett Kavanaugh cleverly avoided answering questions and perjured himself. It is a long read but worth your time when you consider the importance of this lifetime appointment. Having justices on the Supreme Court who respect the truth is essential to the functioning of our democracy.
I am going to send this article to my Senators and urge them to highlight its content as they discuss the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh with the media in hopes that telling the truth under oath becomes what the public insists upon.
Will you do the same?
