The limited investigation was a sham limited in scope by the White House. If the Democrats win the House or Senate, I expect them to conduct a full investigation so we can find out what the truth is. I’m not ready to impeach him though I am very concerned about his partisan rant at the hearing. Let’s see how it plays out.
White House counsel Donald F. McGahn II reportedly told President Trump they could not legally order an unlimited FBI investigation into Brett Kavanaugh. And without a criminal investigation, agents could not use search warrants or subpoenas. https://t.co/CDnMpjwBhf

Amazing. WH limited background check into Kavanaugh because it knew a real investigation could doom nomination, NYT reports.
(Never mind spin designed to distance Trump from this)

It is simply impossible, after seeing the results of the FBI’s supplemental work – I hesitate to call it an investigation – that anybody could think it was in any way, shape or form, the “comprehensive” work the President promised. This so-called investigation is a sham. pic.twitter.com/AE5a5bHXnc

It may be impossible to impeach Kavanaugh, but not to investigate him and this whole shitty process: https://t.co/ZNbSqvndJz

The FBI's report into allegations against Kavanaugh won't be the last. While Republicans didn't pursue the truth about the accusations against the nominee, Democrats will. https://t.co/bLfM1A49An pic.twitter.com/OdfIaVQgi9

Odds are increasing for Kavanaugh’s confirmation to a lifetime appointment to the nation’s highest court.
What comes next? https://t.co/eHkBXJK03t

The American Bar Association, in a letter just sent to the Senate, says that it is re-opening its evaluation of Kavanaugh following "new information of a material nature regarding temperament during the September 27 hearing," according to Bloomberg. https://t.co/gJmB9t86Si pic.twitter.com/VzEuEmZ0Wo
