Tom Cotton has been busy hitting Democrats with doses of reality in the last 24 hours as they seek to move the goalposts on this FBI background investigation, now claiming that it’s too limited and is turning into a farce.
His latest tweet this morning was making a point about the absurdity of this new background investigation:
For goalpost-moving Democrats & your media wing. I’ve been interviewed many times for FBI background checks for classmates, soldiers, & nominees. Every time, agent asked about any drinking problems. You really think FBI missed that in SIX background checks of Judge Kavanaugh?

Exactly. There’s no way they missed this because it’s not a thing. As Matt Walsh put it a few minutes ago…
No rational person cares how much Kavanaugh drank as a teenager. The people pretending to care are either lying or dumb. It's really that simple.

Even the FBI doesn’t care about that.
Yesterday Cotton hit Feinstein for her criticism of the new background investigation:
.@SenFeinstein should’ve handled confidentially with @ChuckGrassley & FBI in August. But she hid & leaked to media at last minute, betraying Ms. Ford. After such a sorry show, really no one needs her lectures. https://t.co/ZE62m8VgGq

The audacity of Feinstein trying to lecture anyone after what she and her staff put Kavanaugh and Ford through just shows how corrupt they really are.
Cotton also retweeted Grassley hitting back at Senate Democrats calling the new background investigation a farce:
Dems: Dr Ford deserves a hearing!
Republicans: Let’s have a hearing!
D’s: Bullies! This hearing is a sham!
D’s: We need an FBI investigation!
R’s: Ok we’ll have an FBI investigation.
D’s: This investigation is a farce!
The goalpost moving never stops.https://t.co/46AFBLy74S

That about sums it up.
Lastly, this was a couple of days ago, but I just couldn’t finish this article without posting it:
If FBI investigation is limited to “current credible allegations” against Kavanaugh, then it should be over now, because there are no credible allegations against him.
And only a fool would think this will change Senate Democrats’ shameful treatment of Kavanaugh. Mark my words.

HERE HERE! I totally agree.
The only reason there’s an FBI investigation in the first place is because the Senate has a big FLAKE for a Republican forcing us down this rabbit hole.
