The Democrats are clamoring to have the FBI investigate the allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh. But that’s not what they argued back in 1991. A recently-unearthed video shows Joe Biden explaining why you “cannot rely” on an FBI report in such circumstances.
Daily Caller has the scoop:
“The next person who refers to an FBI report as being worth anything obviously doesn’t understand anything. The FBI explicitly does not in this or any other case reach a conclusion … period. So, judge, there is no reason why you should know this. The reason why we cannot rely on the FBI report — you wouldn’t like it if we did, because it is inconclusive,” Biden stated at the 1991 Committee hearing.
He continued, “They say he said, she said, and they said, period. So when people wave an FBI report before you, understand they do not, they do not, they do not reach conclusions. They do not make, as my friend points out more accurately, they do not make recommendations.”
Biden, however, currently insists that a sexual misconduct allegation from 35 years ago made by Christine Blasey Ford against Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh should be probed by the FBI.
“We did that for Anita Hill,” Biden told anchors on the Today Show last Friday.
It seems the Democrats have gone back to their old strategy of contradicting everything the Republicans say–even if they’re also contradicting themselves.
