Jeff Flake flaked out and caved to the Democratic demand for an FBI investigation into Brett Kavanaugh. There is a reason why Democrats so desperately want this investigation, and, like everything else they say, it has nothing to do with getting to the truth.
If Democrats were interested in the truth, they wouldn't have held onto these allegations until the last minute.
If Democrats were interested in the truth, they wouldn't be entertaining wild stories from emotionally unbalanced women about roving high school rape gangs.
If Democrats were interested in the truth, they wouldn't have announced that they believed Christine Ford before either one of them had actually testified.
If Democrats were interested in the truth, they would have used the opportunity yesterday to actually ask Ford some questions, rather than taking turns giving her, and themselves, high fives.
If Democrats were interested in the truth, they would have asked Kavanaugh about the incident in question rather than spending the entire hearing focused on yearbook scribblings.
Democrats are not interested in the truth at all, whatsoever. In fact, they've already said that Kavanaugh is unfit for the Supreme Court — no matter what the FBI investigation turns up. But it won't turn up anything, as they are well aware, because there is no evidence, there are no witnesses, and the accuser doesn't even know the year or place that this attack allegedly took place. They have absolutely nothing to go on. Nothing to investigate. The only thing they can do is ask the people who were allegedly involved or allegedly present. All of them have already been asked under penalty of felony and already denied that the party took place. What else can they say about a party that never occurred? There are only so many ways to say, "This didn't happen." Do Democrats want them to say it again in Greek? Do they need to draw a picture of the thing not happening? Do they need to sing it?
The investigation will accomplish nothing of substance and lead nowhere. So why are they so intent on it? Three reasons:
1) It will delay Kavanaugh's confirmation to give time for more dirt to be dug up.
2) It will delay Kavanaugh's confirmation to give time to put more pressure on squish Republicans.
3) They hope the FBI will follow irrelevant trails into unconnected but embarrassing matters, thus further destroying Kavanaugh's reputation.
And, it goes without saying, Democrats will demand another delay after this delay, and they will call the investigation unfair no matter how it's conducted or how it concludes.
