Democrats are clearly concerned now that their stall tactic looks to have failed. Senator Bernie Sanders came out against Kavanaugh trying to tell the FBI what they need to investigate in light of the Democrats failure. He sent a letter to Senator Grassley expressing how he felt things should be handled.
“Lying to Congress is a federal crime. The FBI must examine the veracity of Kavanaugh’s statements under oath in addition to the sexual assault allegations against him. Kavanaugh’s truthfulness with the Senate goes to the very heart of whether he should be confirmed to the court.” Sanders Tweeted.
He posted a picture of the letter he sent to Grassley under his tweet. The letter can be summed up by saying that Sanders believes Kavanaugh’s testimonies throughout his career should be looked at. Sanders believes Kavanaugh lied under oath numerous times.
Senator Grassley saw this and had had enough. He was clearly irritated by the unethical behavior of the Democrats. So he made his feelings known in his letter back to Sanders. His letter has also been circulating around Twitter.
Grassley’s Letter Back To Sanders.
“Thank you for your letter today. As you know, on July 10, 2018, you stated ‘[w]e must mobilize the American people to defeat Judge Kavanaugh.’ This happened less than 24 hours after Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination was announced. As you also know, all Senators have had access to 307 judicial opinions Judge Kavanaugh wrote during his twelve years on the bench, over 500,000 pages of documents, over 40 hours of live testimony, and answers to more written questions than every prior Supreme Court nominee combined. Nevertheless, you made a decision on this nomination in less than 24 hours.
Your public statements clearly reveal how unimportant it is to you to review any facts related to this nomination. So you can imagine my surprise at receiving your letter regarding the supplemental FBI background investigation. This supplemental FBI background investigation was decided by undecided members of both parties.
Am I to take from your letter that you are now undecided and willing to seriously engage with the Senate’s advice-and-consent constitutional duties related to the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh to serve as an Associate Justice on the Supreme Court of the United States? … If so, we should have a conversation about what information you need to assist you in making your decision, and I look forward to that conversation.
I appreciate your raising concerns, which other already have raised, at this eleventh hour.”
That’s how you deal with these Democrats. Grassley made short work of Sanders. Perhaps this will quiet the other anti-Kavanaugh Democrats. The Democrats who have woken up to realize that Kavanaugh’s appointment is practically inevitable at this point.
