Does anyone think the Left will be satisfied with this FBI investigation?

During Brett Kavanaugh's testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week, Democrats repeatedly badgered him about the lack of an FBI investigation into Dr. Blasey Ford's version of the story. But barring time-travel, it's hard to understand how they think the FBI would be able to discover anything conclusive about 36-year-old generalized allegations. And let's be honest, if these allegations against Kavanaugh have any merit, and the FBI never found a hint of them through multiple previous background checks, then the FBI is dangerously incompetent.

Democrats are executing their game plan to perfection. They created such a media ruckus with the last-minute accusation by Ford, then added fuel to the firestorm with even more absurd and more last-minute accusations from Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick, that anyone who questions the accusations is automatically branded a woman-hater. It doesn't matter that, so far, there is no evidence to back up any of the women's claims. Senate Democrats planted seeds of doubt and that was more than enough.

Once Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona took the Democrats' bait on Friday, insisting on a further FBI investigation before a full Senate vote on Kavanaugh, the die was cast. There will be another FBI investigation and that means plenty more opportunities for Democrats to fan the media flames, continue crying foul, and figure out ways to delay the Kavanaugh confirmation indefinitely.

Privately, Democrats must be staring at each other in disbelief, their minds blown by how perfectly this has gone to plan.

On Saturday, the White House confirmed there will be an additional FBI investigation that will supposedly last this week only. Investigators will interview Kavanaugh's high school friend, Mark Judge, whom Democrats are convinced is the missing link in their quest to prove Kavanaugh is a scumbag. The FBI will also interview Deborah Ramirez, the accuser from Kavanaugh's college days at Yale. The other two witnesses the FBI plans to interview are Leland Keyser and P.J. Smyth, who Dr. Ford says were both at the party where the alleged attack took place. So, everything will for sure be totally cleared up by Friday.

In a shocking development, Democrats are already complaining about the limited scope and time restraint of this investigation.

The great part for America is that we now get to enjoy this parody of a soap opera for at least one more week.

The Moment of Trump's Conversion: Dr Anthony Fauci Takes Full Responsibility https://dailycaller.com/2020/03/30/anthony-fauci-moment-donald-trump-realized-extend-social-distancing-mandate/
  • Dr Anthony Fauci, the Chief Medical Advisor to the coronavirus task force, explained on CNN that Trump listened and "got it right away" after being shown new data projecting as many as 3 Million deaths in the US if COVID-19 mitigation policies were lifted.
  • Fauci also said Trump's "first goal is to prevent suffering and death" and this was part of the reason why he knew the COVID-19 guidelines should be extended.
  • "You know, interestingly, we showed him the data, he looked at the data and he got it right away, it was a pretty clear picture," according to Fauci.
  • "Dr. Debbie Birx and I went in together and leaned over his desk and said 'Here is the data, take a look.'
  • Trump reportedly looked at them, understood the implications and he shook his head and said 'I guess we got to do it.'
  • "Medically, this is the right decision, and I stand behind it 100%," Fauci said.
  • "From a public health standpoint, we felt strongly that it would have been the wrong decision to pull back," Fauci said. "I mean, we are scientists, physicians, public health officials. We're not economists. We're sensitive to the idea that the economy could suffer, but weigh that against tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of American lives."
  • "...it was patently obvious looking at the data that at the end of the day if we try to push back prematurely, not only would we lose lives, but it probably would hurt the economy as well. So you would lose on double accounts. So, to us, there was no question what the right choice was."
