Bipartisanship


Overnight, the FBI completed its expanded investigation relating to the Kavanaugh nomination and delivered its report to the White House. The report was forwarded to the Senate Judiciary Committee and is being made available to Senators for review. The White House has stated that the report contains nothing that should stop the nomination. Assuming that the Democrats can’t figure out how to spin some information in the report, we should expect some of them to criticize the FBI for delivering a report that does not support their position. (“Too hasty.” “Arbitrary time constraints.” “Yada, yada, yada”)

Given that the President has been criticizing the FBI for going on two years now, I suppose the pending criticism from the Democrats will be an example of what passes for bipartisanship these days. Mitch McConnell is scheduling the cloture vote on the nomination for Friday. We’re almost done.

Meanwhile, the Democrats’ overreach, especially during last week’s hearing, appears to have backfired. Not only did they wind up energizing the likes of Lindsey Graham, they’ve stirred up the Republican voter base. (My podcasting partner Stacy McCain has more about that here.) A large turnout of Republican voters next month could turn a blue wave red.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.
