Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) said that if Democrats take back the House or the Senate he wants to see a congressional probe into the FBI’s investigation of the sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh.
Sen. Durbin was asked by Nicolle Wallace if Democrats will investigate if they win a majority in the House and/or Senate.
He answered, “Of course, I want to know. This was a critical debate about an important life-long appointment to the highest court in the land. I think whatever the marching orders were from the White House and Senate Republicans, the American people should know.”
Dick Durbin was right. The American people should know
Sen. Durbin was right. The American people should know that the process has been rigged to put an alleged sexual predator on the Supreme Court because is the one choice that has committed to giving Donald Trump a get out of jail free card. The American people deserve to know just how much damage the Trump-led Republican Party has done to their institutions and government.
The American people should know how the FBI was limited and hamstrung by Senate Republicans and the White House so that they could get the result that was exactly what they wanted.
In a little more than a month, if the American people take their anger to the polls, there will be investigations. There will be truth, and most importantly, there will be accountability.
