How the FBI Protects the Swamp

Both sides are claiming the FBI can or will get to the bottom of the Brett Kavanaugh sexual assault matter. The Kavanaugh accuser’s backers say she wants a full FBI investigation of her charges, and that a former FBI agent conducted a lie detector test that she passed. Kavanaugh’s backers say the FBI has already conducted a background investigation of Kavanaugh.

The FBI comes out of this controversy as some authoritative source of information about peoples’ personal lives. Isn’t that convenient for a law enforcement agency under fire for its political motives and investigations?

“I strongly support Dr. Ford’s call for an FBI investigation before a hearing is held,” Senate Democratic leader Senator Chuck Schumer said. “Dr. Ford’s call for the FBI to investigate also demonstrates her confidence that when all the facts are examined by an impartial investigation, her account will be further corroborated and confirmed.”

President Trump countered, “That’s not what they [the FBI] do. They have done now, supposedly, six background checks as Judge Kavanaugh has gone beautifully up a ladder.”

That’s a strange use of the word “supposedly,” and the phrase “up the ladder” is how former prosecutor Miguel Rodriquez had characterized Kavanaugh and other young lawyers in the office of Independent Counsel (OIC) Ken Starr when they were engineering the cover-up of the murder of Clinton White House lawyer Vincent Foster. The OIC had used the FBI to help cover-up the evidence that somebody drove Foster to Ft. Marcy Park, just minutes from CIA headquarters, where his body was found and a gun planted in his hand. Rodriguez quit under pressure for resisting the cover-up. He said those who were part of the cover-up would move up the ladder.

A major section of the authoritative website is devoted to Kavanaugh’s role in the cover-up of the murder of Foster.

As far as the “six background checks” on Kavanaugh are concerned, let’s see them. Did FBI agents go back in time to investigate the party atmosphere at Kavanagh’s Catholic high school Georgetown Prep? Did they examine allegations of sexual assault? Were the results of the investigations provided to the White House?  Did they ever interview Kavanaugh friend Mark Judge, a former alcoholic who claims not to remember any sexual assault?
