Now Democrats are arguing that the probe is not enough… They want to keep investigating him until they find something it doesn’t matter what it is! Did he ever get written up by the hall monitor?
Nothing will ever be enough because this is about resisting everything and anything. This isn’t about justice or doing what’s right. This is about acquiring power it’s just that plain and simple.
Stop this witch hunt and vote. If the FBI investigates anyone for perjury, it should be Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.

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.”
“A fundamental question the FBI can help answer is whether Judge Kavanaugh has been truthful with the committee,” Sanders said. “This goes to the very heart of whether he should be confirmed to the court.”
In other cases, Democrats who enthusiastically called for an FBI investigation last week now seem to be downplaying it. More
Wow, who could’ve ever predicted that giving into the Democrat demands would not satisfy them? They are unhinged and insane…
This is no surprise. There is too much evidence that the Dems have no intention of giving up this fight to stop judge Kavanaugh, or anyone who threatens their agenda,… https://t.co/JzVexz0Wlw

This shows that this is just a delay tactic by the Dems. This is sad that this is what our country has turned intohttps://t.co/nyQGDunEoc

It's almost as if the Democrats don't really care about discovering the truth, but rather are just seeking to delay the nomination until after the mid-terms. Surely not! https://t.co/U5uTBQaql2
