Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) released information from the FBI confirming that the investigation against Brett Kavanaugh was a fraud.
A statement from Senator Whitehouse's office said: “Almost two years later, and after repeated follow-up inquiries, the FBI has finally responded to Whitehouse and Coons' questions. The FBI Bureau of Congressional Affairs letter dated June 30, 2021 revealed new information about the Kavanaugh investigation: that Judge Kavanaugh's nomination “was the first time the FBI set up a line of advice for a candidate seeking endorsement from the Senate submitted ”, and this tip line received“ over 4,500 tips, including phone calls and electronic filings ”. The FBI does not appear to have followed up any of these tips. Instead, according to the FBI, it just gave "all the relevant tips" to Trump's White House legal counsel, the office that had restricted and directed the limited investigation.
The FBI has not investigated any clues about Trump's Supreme Court nominee or sexual assault. Instead, they turned them over to the White House, where the tips were buried and never examined.
Brett Kavanaugh's investigation was a cover-up
The FBI investigation into allegations of sexual assault against then Supreme Court candidate, Brett Kavanaugh, was bogus. It was an investigation in name only, the outcome of which was predetermined. The fact that the FBI participated in this betrayal of the American people indicates a level of corruption that has resulted in continued distrust of the FBI that continues to this day.
The reality is that a sitting Supreme Court judge could be a sex offender, and the FBI, Trump administration, and Republican Party got him there.
