Senate Democrats and their radical backers knew that going after Brett Kavanaugh with a smear campaign was win-win.
Either they would keep Kavanaugh off the court, or hurt the Republicans politically, preferably both. There was no down side. Not for Feinstein. And not for the activists behind the scenes.
If Kavanaugh is confirmed, Republicans may be tempted to let it all die down. But unless there's a price to pay, then there will be sequels.
Even uglier ones.
The Kavanaugh investigation, like the Steele one, should be turned on the investigators. And allegations like these need to be examined.
Monica McLean, a friend of Christine Blasey Ford, has popped up periodically throughout the investigation into Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
In her testimony, Ford identified others she said might be able to corroborate her story. One friend, Leland Ingham Keyser, has said she doesn’t remember the alleged incident, although she supports and believes Ford.
McLean, a retired FBI agent, has been accused of pressuring Keyser into changing her initial statement to reaffirm her support for Ford. Through an attorney, McLean has denied allegations she tried to influence anyone.
McLean is a retired FBI agent, according to The Wall Street Journal.
A former boyfriend of Ford’s alleged the California psychology professor helped McLean prepare for polygraph tests when she was interviewing for jobs with the FBI and U.S. Attorney’s office – directly in contradiction to what Ford told lawmakers under oath.
Is there anything there? We won't know until we investigate.
The proponents of an unlimited investigation should have to reckon with investigations of their own actions.
