Chuck Schumer has officially gone into whine/desperation mode about the Kavanaugh confirmation. Perhaps he’s known all along this Ford ‘Hail Mary’ wasn’t really going to work but now it’s too late, and he has to keep on pretending that this isn’t just another embarrassing loss for the Democrats.
Dr Ford reasonably requested FBI bkgd check before she testifies so all the facts come out instead of just 2 conflicting stories w/o a resolution.
GOP delayed Merrick Garland for nearly a yr & now we can’t have short pause to get the facts?Give me a break. What are they hiding?

Notice how Chuck leaves out the fact that Ford requesting an FBI check isn’t how this works, and that the Democrats had knowledge of her accusations for two months and did nothing with them. Notice how he also leaves out once the FBI was finally given the information they decided themselves NOT to investigate it.
We realize the Left has gotten used to weaponizing federal agencies against those they hate, but that’s just not how this works.
And like Chuck said, give us a break.

FBI have said no repeatedly: not their jurisdiction.
No one has filed a police report.

6 background checks already, Chuckyou. Enough.
I see you. I see what’s being done. It’s contemptible.

The American people already realize what the facts are and it is a disgrace what is happening and the fraud that you and your constituents are attempting to perpetrate. You are trying to destroy every last ounce of decency in this country!

Dr Ford makes accusations. She does not run our judicial system. She has a chance to make her case. Make your case or not.

If she wants to make her case she’s been offered a number of various ways to do so … and she still refuses.
The FBI has done 6 background checks on Kavanaugh. How many more do you need? Maybe they should do 6 on Dr Ford? Maybe you should have came forward in July not the last minute? Confirm Kavanaugh now

Senator Feinstein had the letter since July, mentioned nothing in interviews or on the record. Then in the 11th hour, she springs this? You know the FBI would have put that letter in the file for committee staff. No reward for Feinsteins malfeasance. Hear them testify and vote.
