Rachel Maddow tore into Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley on Thursday, exposing the Iowa Republican for running a sham investigation into Brett Kavanaugh.

The MSNBC host pointed out that the man running Grassley’s so-called investigation into the allegations – a guy named Mike Davis – just so happens to be the biggest Kavanaugh cheerleader.

On the same day that Davis claimed to have “personally questioned” Kavanaugh, he tweeted that he was “unfazed” by the controversy and “determined” to confirm Kavanaugh.

“So you can see the problem if this is the lead investigator that Chuck Grassley has put on this matter,” Maddow said.


Maddow said:

By his own description, he’s the guy who is personally conducting the investigation of this matter. When Chuck Grassley said that the committee investigators are following up on leads and doing these — apparently who he’s talking about is Mike Davis. So you can see the problem if this is the lead investigator that Chuck Grassley has put on this matter.  This guy …  already proclaiming himself to be unfazed by this little problem that has arisen in the confirmation process. And there’s Chuck Grassley saying no other outside investigation is necessary because his committee investigators are taking this on and nobody should have any reason to doubt their impartiality or whether they have an open mind on these matters.

Republicans don’t want the truth; they want a SCOTUS seat

It’s clear what’s going on here. Republicans don’t have any interest in getting to the bottom of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s credible allegations against Brett Kavanaugh because they know it could cost them a Supreme Court seat.

If turning a blind eye to sexual assault means getting a vote to overturn Roe v. Wade or dismantle health care for millions of Americans or continue to allow dark money into political campaigns, Republicans are willing to do it.

In the Trump era, there is no low to which the GOP isn’t willing to stoop.
