Skip to comments.Elizabeth Warren’s new, tantalizing claim about Kavanaugh shows what utter madness this is

One of the most infuriating aspects of this whole Kavanaugh saga is the degree to which we are flying blind about some of the most fundamental points of disagreement at its core. Making this even worse, it doesnt have to be this way.
On the Senate floor late Thursday, Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) made a new and tantalizing claim about whats in the FBI documents on Brett M. Kavanaugh that all senators have now reviewed. Senators are severely limited in what they can say about these documents, which are summaries of the interviews that the FBI conducted as part of their renewed background check into Kavanaugh, after Christine Blasey Ford went public with charges that he sexually assaulted her, which led to a host of new claims like that one and others about his drinking at the time.
Warren noted these limitations and said the following (emphasis added):
Senators have been muzzled. So I will now say three things that committee staff has explained are permissible to say without violating committee rules. One: This was not a full and fair investigation. It was sharply limited in scope and did not explore the relevant confirming facts. Two: The available documents do not exonerate Mr. Kavanaugh.
And three: the available documents contradict statements Mr. Kavanaugh made under oath. I would like to back up these points with explicit statements from the FBI documents explicit statements that should be available for the American people to see. But the Republicans have locked the documents behind closed doors.
Warren, then, appears to have consulted with Judiciary Committee lawyers and was seemingly told that per the rules, she could divulge just this much about what is in the documents, and not a syllable more....

They’re saying he lied about drinking... which he did not.
Criminalizing “You had too much to drink.” “I did not.” exchanges.
Big chief no smok-um peace pipe
Bingo— right after she provides her American Indian DNA....LOL!! One crazy “Patsy Schroeder” lunatic dem. Check the darting eyes. She and Christine Ford could get a room with those.
Wow, I totally believe you Pocahontas. After all, why would you lie to us?
I’m not suggesting the Kavanaugh lied, but I just want to know, what are Elizabeth Warren’s penalties for lying?
NONE! Not a damn thing. Not even a slap on the hand by some ethics committee and surely not being held accountable by the media.
What is NBC’s consequence for lying?
Nothing. Zero. Nada. Not a damn thing!
Take your double-standards and and stuff them.
Statements about something that happened nearly 4 decades ago that are not specifically relevant to anything except your desire for a gotcha are freakin’ pointless
Hey, Fauxcahontas-— Judge Kavanaugh carried the US Nuclear Launch Codes in his capacity as personal secretary to Pres. George W. Bush. THAT requires a rather EXTENSIVE FBI background check.... which he passed, along with the others during his tenure in the DC Appellate Court.
You, “ma’am” (loosely) are a lunatic.
Lizzy, please be the Democrat presidential candidate in 2020. I’m asking politely...
Looks like Lizzy is talking in riddles as the senate’s resident code talker.
That's quite a trap, and a disgusting abuse of power.
Warren: The available documents do not exonerate Mr. Kavanaugh.
Kavanaugh cannot alibi himself because Ford keeps changing the location, her age, etc. every time Kav/senate investigators were able to show he wasn’t there. This is very obvious from her ever changing testimony.
If you want more details - excellent article (posted to FR already):
Christine Blasey Ford’s changing Kavanaugh assault story leaves her short on credibility
The final three contradictions are even more significant because in each circumstance Ford altered her story only after Kavanaugh and Senate investigators had obtained evidence to disprove her original tale.
The Dems will be able to make up anything they want about what may be in the report and no one can refute it. Warren just happens to be the first. Big surprise.
Gray Beaver has flea up butt...................
Like, I’m supposed to believ’um fake injun.
Fake Injun Squaw has no credibility. She can say any damned thing she wants. And apparently get away with it. Alas! Our country is in deep trouble so long as liars can get elected and re-elected
This is a classic case of the left searching for a speck in Kavanaughs eye and ignoring the beam in Ford’s eye.
I thought the codes were always carried by a military officer.
She also could be basing that statement on some small piece of verbiage in the forward of the report stating that it is not intended to exonerate any party being investigated.
Parse the words...
