Dems are waiting to pounce on FBI director Chris Wray’s link to Brett Kavanaugh

Conservatives suspect that if the FBI is unable to substantiate Christine Blasey Ford’s dubious sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, the left will begin to hate the bureau just like they did before President Donald Trump’s election.

Some leftists have seemingly already begun questioning the bureau’s credibility. Take Vanity Fair editor Mike Sacks, who on Friday made it a point to note on social media that current FBI Director Chris Wray attended Yale and Yale Law around the same time as Kavanaugh:

When called out by other Twitter users, Sacks claimed he was “not implying the investigation will be tainted by” the connection but merely noting that men like Wray, Kavanaugh and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein share “similar credentials and commitments now with overlapping and in-tension interests under President Trump.”

“Rosenstein, for instance, recommended Wray for the FBI post and attended Kav hearings as supporter,” he wrote in an attempt to excuse his otherwise suspicious rhetoric.

But not many bought his excuses. To some it sounded as if Sacks was merely moving goalposts and preparing future talking points for if and when the FBI exonerates Kavanaugh:

This theory fits the belief among many on the right that Democrats have no interest in discerning the actual truth. They merely want to delay or stop Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the high court. Both their behavior and their rhetoric certainly back this narrative.

It seems Democrats only trust the FBI when the results of its investigations align with their political interests. When the bureau launched an investigation against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, they hated it. When the FBI exonerated her, they liked it again. When it reopened the investigation, they hated it again. When they permanently closed the investigation, they liked it again.

And after they later learned that former FBI special agent Peter Strzok had essentially plotted to stop President Donald Trump’s election, they practically fell in love with it.
