White House Not Finding Any Corroboration On Kavanaugh Within The FBI Report.
Julio Gonzalez, M.D., J.D.
The White House is not finding any corroboration with the Brett Kavanaugh accusers saysThe Wall Street Journalin a reportpublished Thursday morning. Although the word from the White House is preliminary and was obtained from "people familiar with the matter," it is at least reasonable to conclude that no earth shattering insight has been gained from the FBI investigation exercise.
The implications of this development are multiple. First, as previously predicted by The Federalist Pages last week, those opposing Kavanaugh will cite the inadequacies of the FBI investigation as the reason for the lack of corroboration and might, in an attempt to further disrupt the nomination process, claim nefariousness as the reason for the inadequacy. Those supporting Kavanaugh will feel all the more vindicated in their contention of Kavanaugh's innocence and be emboldened in proceeding with the vote.
Indeed, about the only evidence that has been gleamed from this exercise is that supporting Senator Jeff Flake's poor judgment and the pressing need for him to move on to his next job before he further disrupts an already strained political environment.
