Just a little flashback to Oct 2018 when I noted that it was incredibly unusual that the FBI had not circled back to people who had corroborating information (contradicting #MoscowMitch's claim that there wasn't any): The FBI will have a record of any restrictions it was under

I was in contact with people in Dr. Ford鈥檚 inner circle at the time and can confirm they turned over info that was not followed up on.
 
Right. we will know who gave that order to the FBI. It's almost certainly someone, or an agent for someone, who at the same time was proclaiming an unfettered investigation out of the other side of their mouth. oh, and what did McConnell know and when did he know it?
 
The disregard Trump & his allies have for the rule of law, and the trail they leave, aren't just sloppiness. They believe they won't face consequences because the other side always wants to "move on."
 
The first instinct is to some how blame the FBI.
Don鈥檛.

If there were any restrictions placed on the FBI - you better believe there鈥檚 a paper trail. That鈥檚 not something MosCOW Mitch can bury.

DC鈥檚 bureaucracy can be frustrating but the upside - lots and lots of documents

Don McGahn needs to be asked about this. So does Lindsey Graham. If Democrats did this it would be called the scandal of the century.
 
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
Yes, they do. They just won鈥檛 tell the American people about it.

"FBI Director Christopher Wray told the Senate...that the White House put limits on the re-opened investigation into Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh,but the law enforcement chief insisted that the process used was a typical one."according to Politico politico.com/story/2018/10/鈥

Republicans have ruined the American government for generations.
 
Yet another I-told-you-so about Kavanaugh.
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
Their not going to find any anything with Bill Barr guarding the hive. That evidence is in the shredder!
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
Oh, the black-tie glee of the boys in the Federalist Society celebrating their outmaneuvering of the libs to seat their boy Bret among the Nine despite credible allegations of sexual misconduct that he denied under oath and that the FBI never was permitted to investigate fully.
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
One of the most puzzling aspects was, who paid off Kavanaugh鈥檚 debts?
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
We've all known the entire process was a sham. We all know Kavanaugh is a sex offender. We all know someone bought a SCOTUS seat. Well, when I say all I mean those of us with fully-functional synapses.
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
Looking to know the restrictions. Any inside scoop, Asha?
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
Back in the day when people quaintly thought that the Justice Department was about justice....
 
Have we all forgotten that we knew about the restrictions even before the final vote? Only certain people could be interviewed. No followups. Only certain questions. Directed by the WH legal staff. This is ALL public record.
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
why wouldn鈥檛 someone at FBI disclose this? my problem is with all the agents who are complicit by remaining silent out of fear- i think that鈥檚 bullshit and i鈥檓 tired of hearing about how honorable they are-
 
The 鈥淣OAA statement鈥 of FBI investigations.

Dictated by the White House, transcribed on FBI letterhead.
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
More scandal, DOJ must've tied the FBI's hands.
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
Director Wray should have fought the sham parameters for this investigation. Instead, he fully supported and defended it. pic.twitter.com/pHjs2Xzv8F

Story is buried on p 2 of Sunday Review (West Coast edition) with no mention story on either front page of paper or front page of Sunday Review. What鈥檚 up, NYT?? pic.twitter.com/7vov53yPUp

Yes but @FBI doesnt get to use the 鈥渙h our hands were tied鈥 excuse 鈥 They did a shoddy investigation and they knew better鈥擳hey could have done something and instead they did nothing. Not ok FBI鈥擭ot ok. 馃え
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
Cue William Barr cover-up operation!
 
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
I told my high school students the FBI was criminally negligent over Kavanaugh. It was CLEAR there was a coverup.
 
I agree. I dont understand these new stories about FBI failing to follow up on Kavanaugh accusations. We all knew it was a sham investigation and Flake and Collins just used it to whitewash their votes.

Disgusting.
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
We need to find out if the FBI were under restrictions when they failed to interview so many people who had damaging information on Kavanaugh that could have been addressed at his confirmation hearings.
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
If the FBI receives a report of a crime, aren鈥檛 they obligated to either investigate themselves or hand the report over to a police dept who will take up the investigation?
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
We鈥檙e watching a GOP Show that鈥檚 severed from Reality.
 
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
My little flashback remembers how GOP was in a HUGE rush - remember how FBI was given only a few days to complete its "investigation"? Because they just had to vote immediately? Wonder why.....
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
Because Chairman Grassley wouldn't allow the FBI to do a new background check. 馃憞馃 twitter.com/Fogfaaja/statu鈥

In reply to @AshaRangappa_
You are all assuming records haven鈥檛 been destroyed. We are dealing with lawlessness in our administration anything is feasible
 
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
You have the Federalist society running the DOJ, FBI, and SCOTUS. They're all corrupted. We will never see anything.
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
Stamp any subpoena with impeachment or give it up. Get out of the way Pelosi your preventing all oversight of this executive
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
Time to do what was recommended in the Just So Story that mentioned getting a tortoise out of its shell: Just turn it over and scoop it out.
 
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
No one is going to stand up for the law. No one is going to hold anyone accountable. Anyone who has the authority to do so is equally complicit.
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
I love 2018 era Asha, who had faith in the house judicial committee's ability to get literally anything done.
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
The whole background check vs criminal investigation rationale sounded really fishy given the new information. Public was never given a detailed report afterwards. It is really unfortunate that events over the last few years will leave doubts in people's mind for years to come.
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
At the end you say it would be "ironic." Meaning that it would be hypocritical, shameful, unethical, galling, deceitful, and intolerable. Oh, and par for the course for this WH.

As during other times in USA history the FBI has been politicized. This agency is no better than the people who direct it. FBI personnel are raised in the same culture that generates the problems and crimes they investigate. They need outside review of their actions as well.
 
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
Reality says it was a bullshit sideshow "wknd investigation", phone calls from desk, only purpose was to enable Red senators to play stupid. Handpicked "agents" ordered to run from any whiff of evidence, corroboration, add'l leads to follow.
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
There鈥檚 a reason why the AG was chosen. His name is BARR. He won鈥檛 allow that information see the light of day.
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
Am I remembering correctly that #MoscowMitch tried to steer the nomination away from Kavanaugh?

I disagree. The FBI IS in habit of leaving loose ends. Esp when instructed to do so. "F.B.I. agents interviewed Ms. Ramirez, telling her that they found her 鈥渃redible.鈥 But the Republican-controlled Senate had imposed strict limits on the investigation."nytimes.com/2019/09/14/sun鈥
 
I want all information to be the story I remember the fbi had barriers which are ridiculous when you take into account the enormity of his position for decades to come
 
The next president needs to overhaul the FBIs leadership. They are a failing institution in desperate need of change.
 
Easy to see why your stint at the FBI was so short.
 
The real story here Is .... why did the justice retire?? Hi son is in deep here. That's the scoop
 
The FBI is a rotting failed relic when 鈥榗ontemporaneous notes鈥 are excuse enough for any survivors and their loved ones.

1/ Old enough to remember when Amy Chua said her defense of Kavanaugh had nothing to do with positioning her daughter for a clerkship and then, Amy鈥檚 daughter got the clerkship. news.yahoo.com/kavanaugh-defe鈥
 
Another reminder that there were people tweeting that they had info but the FBI wouldn't take their statements and everyone agreed to go by the FBI investigation.
 
In reply to @GOP
innocent people/administrations don't hinder investigations. Period. actions speak so much louder than words. trump has been hindering, blocking, stonewalling since the day he walked into the WH. Ask yourself, what is he hiding? twitter.com/AshaRangappa_/鈥

What if, in or out of the chain of command, someone was ordered to not make a record?
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
Sounds to me like any member of @fbi who was aware of this and did not immediately notify the public is a COWARD. @fbi needs to WAKE THE F*^K UP and realize the rules of the game have changed. Their little 鈥渏ust following orders鈥 institutionalist BS WON鈥橳 PROTECT THE REPUBLIC!
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
Oh, the FBI believed it, they were just told to stand down. The moment trump said he agreed to let the FBI have a week to investigate, I knew it would be an investigation that wasn't an investigation.
 
So I guess it鈥檚 time for me to rage cry over this again. Great.
 
 
technically true. The FBI didn't interview anyone, so the report wasn't going to corroborate their testimony
 
Thank goodness Dems had the self-control not to follow up on any of it with subpoenas or an investigation. (sarcasm)

In reply to @AshaRangappa_
Good luck trying to get THAT kind of info out of Barr's DOJ!
 
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
The entire investigation was a travesty, an exercise in placating the naysayers but deliberately limited and intended to suppress damaging information. We are officially a banana republic governed by a corrupt dictator.
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
Asha will this report ever see the light of day? Or will the DOJ block this just like everything else?

In reply to @AshaRangappa_
A S.C. Justice must have the utmost integrity, honesty, and independence. Kavanaugh's confirmation process was a sham. He should be impeached, along with Barr, Trump, and Pence. Impeachment should answer questions about Kav's possible lying, assaults, and questionable finances.
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
I love how the FBI's credibility depends on who they are fucking with...
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
Most people have a color they look good in. This confirms you have two. Possibly more.
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
They stated at the time the restrictions they were under.
 
 
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
Yes, I am sure they have a record, but they will fight to their dying breaths to keep that record from being exposed. The FBI has always been close-lipped about their procedures, and this Administration has bolstered that even more.
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
Moscow Mitch, stop right there....
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
We are so sick of the lies! Come on, #Kavanaugh sue! & you can take down the lying #MoscowMitch, too!
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
#MoscowMitch believes with all his cold, bitter, greedy, hardened heart that he's immune from #ETTD. He's wrong. They'll tumble in this order: Falwell Jr. Kavanaugh Nunes Trump (who'll surrender meekly) Pence @senatemajldr It won't be better, but they'll have received their due.
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
They were told not to re-interview.

It is time for for #MoscowMitch to go. If he doesn鈥檛 support ur values then vote for someone who does.
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
The truth will come out
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
I don鈥檛 understand. So, why didn鈥檛 the witnesses who were not interviewed go, at that time, to newspapers to make their concerns know?
 
In reply to @AshaRangappa_
You mean 3rd and 4th hand witnesses who couldn't get stories straight?馃槀
