Sen. Murphy: We’ll investigate, then reject.
Twitchy: FBI work won’t ‘appease Dems on Kavanaugh’
How Dems intend to use FBI Kavanaugh investigation
The Constitution gives the U.S. Senate the power to “advise and consent” on the appointment of federal judges.
Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, in his Thursday appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee, famously noted the Democrats had turned that into “search and destroy.”
But that’s just the half of it.
Now, thanks to this Democrat’s tweet, we know their game plan for the one-week delay while the FBI investigates new claims against Kavanaugh.
And it’s definitely NOT advise and consent.

The Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee were gleeful Friday when they got assurances of a week delay on the the full Senate vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.
It’s because their strategy is to investigate.
That’s according to Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn.
“Yes, of course there should be an FBI investigation. But whatever they find doesn’t change the fact that Kavanaugh, especially after his performance yesterday, is the most dangerous Supreme Court pick of our lifetime.”

The Twitter comment drew a wide range of reactions.
“Need an FBI investigation into the crimes committed by @SenFeinstein and her staff,” wrote GayPatriotTM.
And Rogaine Is Ineffective, said: “It’s gonna be LIT when some crazy rando comes out making false accusations against YOU without any evidence or corroborating witnesses. Cause I’m gonna ‘believe her.’”
Twitchy blogger commented: “Shocker!”
“With some help from Republicans Sens. Jeff Flake and Lisa Murkowski, Democrats might have managed to push a full Senate vote back a week in order for an investigation into allegations against Brett Kavanaugh.
