Jeff Flake just called for an FBI investigation before final Kavanaugh vote


#1

Keep this Flake clip for ever. For democracy
#2

Good, but he’s still an opportunistic asshole.


#3

Yup, but I’ll take anything that gets an FBI investigation.


#4

Given that he’s not seeking re-election, maybe this was at least somewhat genuine, even it was just genuine shame…


#5

So his position is apparently “the full Senate should have the benefit of a full investigation before making up their minds on Judge Kavanaugh. But not those of us on the Judiciary committee.”


#6

I’m right there with you; it’s better than nothing.

From the second linked story:

The president added that he found Ford to be a “credible” witness," and called her a “fine” woman.

That sounds almost like a compliment until you realize it’s the same language he uses to describe Neo-Nazis.


#8

I will take that. It had to be one of the 3 semi-undecided Republican votes. We shall see how it plays out, but this is the first encouraging news in days.


#9

Yeah, “very fine people” is pretty close to “fine woman.” Unless when he said the latter, he was wiggling his eyebrows.
