House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Sunday filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request in an attempt to obtain all of the records related to the FBI investigation into Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
"The GOPs decision to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court has wounded the very soul of justice in our country," Pelosi wrote in a statement to her Democratic colleagues. "To preserve the full record of this dark chapter, I am filing a FOIA request so the public can see the FBI report, transcripts of interviews, instructions from the White House, and any communications to the FBI from Senate Republicans regarding the scope of the investigation.
"This is important to set the record straight."
Pelosi's announcement came a day after the Senate confirmed Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court in a 50-48 vote and he was sworn in.
The vote concluded a contentious confirmation process in which Kavanaugh faced multiple allegations of sexual misconduct. Kavanaugh has fiercely denied the accusations.
He and Christine Blasey Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee last month regarding Ford's claim that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a high school party in the 1980's.
GOP senators, including Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), said last week that an FBI investigation into Kavanaugh found no corroboration for Ford's claims.
But many Democrats criticized the investigation, calling it inadequate. Ford's attorneys have also called the investigation a "stain" on the bureau.
We were given one week to investigate. The Republicans said youll get one week, they threw out one week, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), who sits on the Judiciary Committee, told the Senate last Friday. And in less than one week, we are presented with paltry documents.
Pelosi concluded her letter to colleagues by saying that the "health and financial security of families across America" is at stake in November's midterm elections.
"The new conservative majority on the Supreme Court threatens a rollback of protections for people with pre-existing conditions, more leverage for corporate special interests over working families, and little hope to reform Citizens United," Pelosi said. "That is why we must fight even harder to win so that we can advance our For The People agenda."
Be careful what you wish for, Nancy.
Hurrah! One of our ‘Secret Weapons’ continues to mouth off and keep the EVIL Dems in the spotlight for all to see!
Please, PLEASE keep it up...right up until November 6, 2018!
Thanks! Red Tsunami, 2018! MAGA!
The GOP should file a request that Pelosi’s financial records be made public.
Here they are
Just something for the criminal RATS to say is false, fake, a setup, GOP favoritism, etc, etc, etc. Pelosi and her obstructionist ilk have nothing else to do.
DemocRATS do nothing FOR the people, only TO them....
These demoncrats are so far gone they will stop at nothing until everyone in their path is destroyed.
Don’t these morons realize that for the next 40 years plus, Kavanaugh is going to vote in favor of the conservatives if the issue is 50-50. It’s human nature that he will want to “payback” the democrat leftists and the more they antagonize him, the more they will lose in the future.
What a gift! Keep at it Pelosifer!
Give Pelosi a broom and a pooper-scoop and have her clean up her city.....she needs something to do.
DiFi needs to take her to the cloakroom and have a little chat.
Sadly, Pelosi and the Democrat agenda like to draw attention to the Preamble's "For the People" phrase, ignoring the preceding essential phrases: Of the People, By the People.
Democrats appoint themselves as arbiters of the Preamble's accent on the fact that the Constitution, itself, is one Of the People and By the People--not of the Democrats and to be implemented by the Democrats.
Also worth remembering, that Constitution's own provisions require that any legitimate, valid changes to that Constitution require the participation of the People, in accordance with the Constitution's own strict formula for amendment (change).
It’s over Nancy you lost again . What great plans do you have for the US when you become Speaker again ? LOL
When you are in a hole Nan put down your shovel and stop digging.
What are you trying to do, Nancy, a Hillary Clinton?
IF she gets the entire unredacted report, she is going to get the undisclosed dirt the Bureau found on DiFi while investigating BK; dirt that after reading the report herself, made ol DiFi look dazed and close to tears. Will she allow even a snake like Pelousy to see that information.
I think every Senator should be investigated by the FBI every two years....Pelosi and husband especially, Di Fi and husband and lord knows Maxine Waters and Husband should be investigated ASAP....don’t take this lightly...call, fax, or write your elected to investigate Dr. Ford also.
DJT should send them a totally redacted page, just to watch their heads explode!
How about an extensive and microscopic FBI investigation into all things Pelosi from birth through today? Add Sparactus Booker, Kamala Harris, ChiFi Feinswine, Madd Maxine, Schmucky Schumer, Dicky Durbin, Sheila Jackson Lee, and the rest of the RAT vermin in Congress. Let’s see all their ties to Soros and financial dealings throughout their political wheeling and dealings.
