In 2018, Donald Trump nominated Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court. The pick was a controversial one. There were not only questions about the judges finances, he was also accused of sexual assault.
While Republicans were focused on ignoring these accusations, the FBI opened an investigation. This investigation, Glenn Kirschner says, was a sham. The former federal prosecutor is calling for the probe to be reopened after thousands of tips were completely ignored.
Kirschner slammed the FBI for handing the tips over to Donald Trump, “the very person — the very office that was trying to cram Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court down America’s throat.”
Democratic senator Sheldon Whitehouse is calling for the same thing. He recently remarked:
“In its years-late response to our questions, the FBI leaned hard on the notion that this MOU limited its authority to be the FBI and investigate wrongdoing. Now that we have the MOU, it’s even harder to understand the Bureau’s excuses for ignoring credible information it received. Director Wray Ought to be ready to answer my questions about this episode — I won’t stop asking until he does.”
