Looks like it is likely that Democrats will get their additional delay and an FBI investigation. Flake is a swing vote and in the ultimate fence straddling move votes to move the confirmation vote to the Senate but calls for a short, targeted FBI investigation to display an air of bipartisanship, otherwise he will vote No in the Senate. Grassley says he will recommend a short, targeted investigation as well in a show of support for Flake.
While specifics haven’t been nailed down yet, basically they will allow an FBI investigation only into Ford’s allegation, to be limited to not more than one week, or to the time necessary during that one week, ie 3 days.
So there you go guys, got your bone you’ve been calling for. I am curious, if the FBI investigation turns up no new or relevant information on either side of the accusation, will that actually satisfy all those currently against or on the fence about Kavanaugh’s confirmation?
Also, hold onto your butts for some more wild and crazy anonymous accusations! It’s gonna be a wild ride!
