Kavanaugh FBI Investigation Leads Nowhere

The 7th FBI background check on Kavanaugh is leading nowhere, as many conservatives had predicted. The Daily Caller reports:

The FBI had interviewed four people in its probe into Judge Brett Kavanaugh as of Monday afternoon, but the three witnesses whom Christine Blasey Ford alleges were at the party in her testimony do not recall the gathering, according to the Washington Post’s sources.

The FBI has talked to alleged party guests Patrick J. Smyth, Mark Judge and Leland Keyser and Kavanaugh’s Yale classmate Deborah Ramirez, who said that Kavanaugh had exposed himself to her during their college years, according to WaPo.

“[Smyth] truthfully answered every question the FBI asked him and, consistent with the information he previously provided to the Senate Judiciary Committee, he indicated that he has no knowledge of the small party or gathering described by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, nor does he have any knowledge of the allegations of improper conduct she has leveled against Brett Kavanaugh,” Smyth’s lawyer Eric B. Bruce said in a statement, according to WaPo.

“Mr. Judge has been interviewed by the FBI but his interview has not been completed,” Judge’s lawyer Barbara Van Gelder said in a statement Monday, according to CNN. “We request your patience as the FBI completes its investigation.”

This is no fault of the FBI – a background check investigation is no criminal investigation and as such cannot issue subpoenas. And the investigation into Kavanaugh cannot be a criminal one because no charges have been filed – and it wouldn’t be within the FBI’s jurisdiction regardless.
