Will the FBI’s Kavanaugh probe be a White House coverup?

The question is whether this sham investigation will satisfy at least two of these Senators, and give them political cover they will need to vote to confirm, or whether they will demand a full and thorough FBI investigation instead of a cover-up.

Running the Kavanaugh coverup, Don McGahn, currently under investigation by Mueller

If you want to discover the truth instead of cover it up, would you appoint the accused’s lawyer to supervise and control the investigation of the charges against him?

That’s exactly what the Trump White House and Senate Republicans are doing with the one-week FBI investigation. They’ve appointed White House Counsel Don McGahn to oversee the FBI investigation, determine its scope, and  authorize, or refuse to authorize whom the FBI may interview.

McGahn is the Federalist Society insider and White House counsel who steered Trump to pick Kavanaugh from the list of Far-Right Supreme Court candidates the Society put on his desk. He has since been in charge of shepherding Kavanaugh’s nomination through the Senate, advising the candidate in Judicial Committee hearings. He has spent days behind doors in the White House, coaching Kavanaugh on what and how to testify.

McGahn’s role included supervising  hours of so-called  “murder board” sessions in which a mock hearing room was constructed in the White House where McGahn, former Fox News Co-President and Roger Ailes defender Bill Shine, Republican Senators Lindsey Graham and Orrin Hatch and Federalist Society leader acted the roles of Judiciary Committee members and coached Kavanaugh on his testimony.

If you remember Francis Ford Coppola’s Godfather movies, this is a bit like putting Corleone family consigliere Tom Hagen in charge of an FBI investigation of the Don.

McGahn and GOP want to bar FBI from key interviews

According to news reports on NBC, CNN, and in the New York Times, McGahn is consulting closely with Republicans and keeping Democrats in the dark about limits on the scope of the FBI’s investigation, the number and identities of the witnesses whom the FBI will be allowed to interview, and the scope of the questions they’ll be allowed to ask.

So far, the list is limited to the three individuals whom Christine Blasey Ford testified were present at the high school gathering where she asserts Kavanaugh tried to rape her. Mark Judge, the drunken wingman who Dr. Ford says egged him on, has already claimed he has no memory of the incident. P.J. Smyth, who was downstairs, has also stated he does not recall the event. While Dr. Ford’s friend Leland Keyser first stated through her attorney that she doesn’t recall the gathering, she has since clarified that she believes Dr. Ford’s account.

The final witness on the approved list is Deborah Ramirez, who claims a drunken Kavanaugh exposed his penis to her and forced it into her face during a Freshman party at Yale.

Notably, witnesses whom McGahn and his allies won’t allow the FBI to interview include former classmates who have contradicted Kavanaugh’s testimony with eyewitness accounts about his youthful drinking, partying,  and sexually aggressive behavior towards young women.

The witnesses the FBI may be banned from interviewing include Julie Swetnick, who submitted a sworn affidavit that Kavanaugh regularly drank excessively and participated in sexual misconduct in high school, including lines outside a bedroom door where multiple boys waited to have sex with a drunken and possibly drugged girl inside.

On “Fox News Sunday,” Sarah Huckabee Sanders said an investigation of Swetnick’s claims and the question of whether Kavanaugh misled Senators during the hearings are off-limits to the FBI.

But more witnesses are coming forward to confirm Kavanaugh was a problem drinker in high school and college, and often became aggressive, including sexually, when drunk. In his Senate testimony, Kavanaugh mentioned beer over 30 times, a beverage he apparently has a great fondness for and doesn’t know how much is too much, according to this testimony.

If the FBI is allowed to question witnesses who swear under oath that Kavanaugh regularly drank heavily and then behaved aggressively, it lends strong credibility to Dr. Ford’s story of a drunken, teenaged Brett Kavanaugh accompanied by a laughing and drunk Mark Judge, pushed her into a room, pinned her to a bed, tried to remove her clothes, and put his hand over her mouth when she tried to scream for help.

This incident was seared for life into the brain of a traumatized Dr. Ford. But it’s plausible that that it has been forgotten or dismissed by the heavily drunk Kavanaugh and Judge as just another high school ‘bro prank, with little consequence at the time on their lives or inebriated consciousness.

The cover-up

If the FBI investigation is controlled by McGahn and limited to 4 or 5 witnesses, it is a cover-up and a sham.

Apparently, McGahn has had some conversation with Senators Susan Collins, Jeff Flake, and Lisa Murkowski about the scope of the FBI investigation. The question is whether this sham investigation will satisfy at least two of these Senators, and give them political cover they will need to vote to confirm, or whether they will demand a full and thorough FBI investigation instead of a cover-up.

And it may be up to the people – like Ana Maria Archila and Maria Gallagher, the two courageous women who confronted Jeff Flake in an elevator on Friday – to convince these wavering Senators that permitting a sham investigation and confirmation will guarantee their infamy in history.

  1. My god you’re an idiot. I could find you hundreds of MSM sources for all kinds of false narratives. I bet you don’t even know what communism means, let me guess, you voted Trump….

  2. Medical Doctors would be among the type of groups we should be choosing from. Others would include community leaders who have demonstrated a selfless and measured approach in their service to community.
    Military, Lawyers, Judges, and elected officials serving at the federal level, would be among the least desirable group. Ivy League scholars cannot get the Diploma being sold, unless they submit to a certain construct. Award winning journalists would be another good group to choose from.
    The US has lost it’s way, and vision of what is possible. The assertive nature of bullies, exerting authority based on Dominionism is currently our position.

  3. Oct 4, 2018 3 Constitutional Reasons Why Kavanaugh Should Not Be On Supreme Court

    *note: FEE is the Foundation for Economic Education The circus that has surrounded the Bret Kavanaugh nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court has been drowned out by 36 year old, uncorroborated accusations of sexual harassment.

    • Excellent point and video. Kavanaugh is intimately connected to 9/11, and legislation to curtail freedoms.
      His nomination is an act of Domination and the movement to further dominate the people of the US has been around since inception. The Dominionist argument is one that asserts a basic philosophy, that both earth and women and people are subject to Domination by a select few with peculiar beliefs and privileges afforded to them by Religion. So, the Ford issue is accurate but it expands to all of the people and land and resources. Even the entire world. The next move would be private military with immunity from prosecution directed by corporations, with loyalty to Dominion policy.

  4. Will it be a coverup? Well, if Kavanagh was allowed to be involved it would end like the FBI’s investigation into Vince Foster’s death. An obvious murder. But never fear, for, in DC, hands wash the hands that washed the hand. You got my back, and I got yours. Truth? Never heard of the guy, . Is he related to you?

  5. The basic problem is lying lawyers control every nook and cranny of our totally corrupt government. These crooks have hi jacked the whole thing. There are no, zero, checks and balances because they control every branch and they are all trained to lie, cheat and steal in law school. Earl Carey, an engineer, proved all this in a fabulous book which was unfortunately published in 1992 about 8 years before the internet came online. The book is called “IBM and the Corruption of Justice in America”. He lists no less than 42 federal judges by name and location who patently violated the rules and law they took a meaningless oath to protect. He even tried to have them all arrested by the FBI! There is no requirement that a lying lawyer be appointed to the Supreme Court. Any citizen is just as qualified. Stop only placing lying lawyers on this court. As Carey recommends ban all lawyers from any government jobs. This is the place to begin to reform the cesspool U.S. Government.
