Well, things are becoming even darker. It is being reported by the media that the FBI will submit their "completed" investigation results late tonight (Wednesday) regarding the allegations from two (out of three) women that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh committed sexual misconduct while in high school and in college. This is what happens where there are no checks and balances against abuse and corruption. The Republican-controlled Senate Judiciary committee is enabling Trump, as Trump restricts the FBI from conducting a fair and thorough investigation into the allegations of sexual misconduct by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
This FBI investigation is fake. As this Washington Post article notes, the majority of the 6 witnesses interviewed were Kavanaugh's friends. Only one of the women who accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct was interviewed (Deborah Ramirez). The other two women (Professor Christine Blasey Ford and Julie Swetnick) were not interviewed, and Kavanaugh himself was not interviewed by the FBI.
None of the witnesses who were offered to the FBI to corroborate the women were interviewed by the FBI (such as the therapist with whom Professor Ford spoke about the assault by Kavanaugh years before Trump even became President, or Kerry Bercham, who attended Yale with Deborah Ramirez and Kavanaugh, who has information that Kavanaugh seemed to have attempted to contact and request friends rebut Deborah Ramirez's allegation some time before Ms. Ramirez's allegation even became public).

As FBI background check of Kavanaugh nears its end, probe appears to have been highly curtailed
October 3, 2018
The FBI background check of Brett M. Kavanaugh appeared to remain curtailed in its scope Wednesday even as agents neared the end of their work, opening up the possibility that the bureau would again face criticism over what some will view as a lackluster investigation.
Though complete details of the FBI’s findings had yet to be released Wednesday evening, the bureau’s inquiry seems to have focused mostly on an allegation by a California professor who claims Kavanaugh assaulted her decades ago at a party in Maryland, when both were high school students.
The Washington Post has been able to confirm interviews with only six witnesses, five of whom have a connection to the professor or her allegation.

Even before the probe had ended, several people who claimed to have information that could be useful said they ended up mired in bureaucracy when they tried to get in touch with the FBI. Democrats also cried foul over what they saw as inappropriate parameters that the White House seemed to be imposing on the bureau.
President Trump has insisted publicly he was not curtailing the FBI probe. But privately, the White House restricted the FBI from delving deeply into Kavanaugh’s youthful drinking and exploring whether he had lied to Congress about his alcohol use, according to officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive matter.
Some of those involved in the case complained that the bureau did not follow leads that were offered to it.
The FBI, for example, interviewed Deborah Ramirez, who accused Kavanaugh of exposing his penis to her at a gathering when both were college students at Yale, and Ramirez’s team provided agents with more than 20 people who might have information relevant to her claims. But as of Wednesday, Ramirez’s team had no indication that the bureau had interviewed any of them.
The FBI also did not interview Christine Blasey Ford, her legal team said. Ford is the California professor whose public testimony about a high school gathering at which she said Kavanaugh forced her onto a bed and groped her helped spark the background check in the first place. The legal team said Ford was willing to turn over to the bureau notes from therapy sessions in which she described the assault.
Instead, the bureau interviewed three people who Ford said attended the party: Mark Judge, Patrick Smyth and Leland Keyser. The FBI also talked to two other friends of Kavanaugh’s who were listed as attending a gathering during the same summer that Ford alleged she was assaulted: Chris Garrett, who went out with Ford for a time, and Tim Gaudette.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, said that agents also had apparently not talked to Kavanaugh himself.
“The White House confirmation that it will not allow the FBI to interview Dr. Blasey Ford, Judge Kavanaugh or witnesses identified by Deborah Ramirez raises serious concerns that this is not a credible investigation,” she said in a statement.
The FBI similarly had not — at least as of Wednesday — interviewed Julie Swetnick, who said in a declaration that Kavanaugh was physically abusive toward girls in high school and was present at a house party in 1982 where she says she was the victim of a “gang” rape. But the bureau did ask Judge, who was named in the affidavit, about her claims.
Mitch McConnell today (Wednesday) moved for a final vote on Kavanugh's nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court on Saturday of this week (with a cloture vote set for this Friday). Senators will be reading the report on Thursday and Friday. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/brett-kavanaugh-vote-mitch-mcconnell-motion-cloture-vote-trump-scotus-nominee-confirmation-vote-this-week/Please keep calling your Senators--especially if you live in Alaska, Maine or Arizona-- to urge them to reject Kavanaugh's nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Professor Christine Blasey Ford was as credible witness and thus her allegation of sexual assault committed by Kavanaugh when she was only 15 years old is believable, especially since she has offered to have her therapist and her husband testify that she had spoken with them about the incident years before Trump even considered Kavanaugh as a nominee to the Supreme Court, and especially since the FBI has failed to attempt to interview her offered witnesses as well as failed to follow other leads. In addition, Kavanaugh has behaved in such a manner during the Senate Judiciary hearing that clearly indicated he holds a deep partisan bias and lacks the temperament and judgment fitting of any judge, much less a justice on the highest court of the United States.To find out how to contact your U.
