WATCH: Former Assistant FBI Director Dismantles Case Against Kavanaugh…on CNN!

Published

Well, this can’t possibly be the way the CNN producers were hoping the interview would go.

There is one glaring fact amid the circus that has been the way Democrats and the media are treating the last-minute accusations made against Brett Kavanaugh just days before his confirmation was due to be voted on.

Christine Ford, the woman who says Kavanaugh drunkenly groped and attempted to rape her at a high school party in 1983, has requested that the FBI investigate Kavanaugh before agreeing to testify before Congress on the alleged incident.

But the FBI has not already conducted six separate background checks on Kavanaugh in his various appointments as judge and Bush Jr. administration official, but the crime Ford describes isn’t even in the FBI’s jurisdiction.

This is what, if Ford is somehow completely unaware, local police departments are for.

We’re not sure exactly what CNN’s Brooke Baldwin was going for when she interviewed former assistant FBI director Chris Swecker this week on the Kavanaugh accusations, and he set her and every other lib straight on how ridiculous Ford’s request really is.

Conservative Tribune reports:

“The FBI has no independent jurisdiction to open up a stand-alone investigation of rape allegations or assault allegations that may have taken place 36 years ago,” Swecker said. “That’s a local crime. Unless it involves a federal official or on federal land, or has some federal nexus, there’s just no jurisdiction to do it.”

The interview got even more disappointing for the left when Baldwin asked Swecker what evidence the agency would look at to investigate Ford’s claims.

“There just can’t be any forensic evidence. I would be shocked if they brought a garment forward that might have DNA or something like that,” Swecker said.

Swecker went on to say that the evidence would be “strictly interviews” of the alleged victim, the alleged perpetrator, anyone else who might have been at the party, her therapist or anyone else she may have confided in about the incident.

Swecker also went on to clarify in no uncertain terms that Ford’s accusations are pretty weak already, regardless of who would investigate, there’s a good chance the case would get thrown out in court:

“But it’s all fairly thin. None of this would hold up in court,” Swecker said.

Swecker added that Kavanaugh already passed six rigorous background checks from the FBI.

“These are the most thorough background checks that you can possibly do,” Swecker said.

In other words, there’s virtually no way to definitively prove Ford’s allegations are true. Which creates a sad irony that Democrats are so willing to ignore the basic tenets of due process when it comes to trying to prevent the nomination of Kavanaugh to the highest court in the land.

US Women’s Soccer Team Skips Representing U.S.A. at Opening Ceremony

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the Olympics opening ceremonies.

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: https://twitter.com/USWNT/status/1418557013739536390 The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” https://twitter.com/InsideGym/status/1418539840564572160 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.

Kid Suicides, Mental Health Hospitalizations Surge Worse than Coronavirus During Lockdowns

Kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns.

Published

New research has found that kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns themselves. Kids ended up dying of suicides and being hospitalized for mental health illnesses at a high rate, according to a new study. Once again, we see that this “cure” was far worse than virus ever was, especially for young people. Per Just the News: Jeanne Noble, director of COVID response in the UCSF emergency department, is finishing an academic manuscript on the mental health toll on kids from lockdown policies. She shared a presentation on its major points with Just the News. Suicides in the Golden State last year jumped by 24% for Californians under 18 but fell by 11% for adults, showing how children were uniquely affected by “profound social isolation and loss of essential social supports traditionally provided by in-person school,” the presentation says. Children requiring emergency mental health services jumped last year in Children’s Hospital of Oakland, and children’s hospitalizations for eating disorders more than doubled at UCSF Children’s Hospital. In January, the latter’s emergency department (ED) at Mission Bay hit a record for “highest proportion of suicidal children in ER” at 21%. The study authors charged that the CDC is bringing serious harm to children with its coronavirus policies. Just the News added that kids are facing more than the virus. They are also facing an “atrophy” of the interpersonal skills because of masks and lost school time, and they are suffering great bouts of depression. It is even harder on teens, especially those close to graduation, because they face a stymied start to college, or their careers. This also brings severe depression.
