Sen. Bill Cassidy thinks it’s the Democrats who should be under FBI investigation for their efforts against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Following the news that the FBI will be investigating the allegations by Christine Blasey Ford that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a party when the two were high school students, Cassidy suggested the “coordination” by Democrats to smear the judge should be under scrutiny.
“This is part of a broader Democratic strategy to coordinate, and in that coordination, to seek to delay,” Cassidy said on “Fox & Friends” Saturday. “How many more charges can be brought out to smear this man, to create legitimate doubts in the minds of some of the American public?”
“There are other things the FBI should do, but it should investigate whether indeed there is this intent to coordinate, and in fact, the actual coordination,” the Louisiana Republican added, while pointing to Sen. Diane Feinstein, who has denied leaking Ford’s letter to her detailing the allegations.
“Let’s actually investigate. Ask Diane Feinstein under oath, did she leak it, then ask her aide,” Cassidy said.
“I hope truth is more important than character assassination, than ideology. It won’t be for some,” Cassidy said.
In an op-ed for Breitbart News, Cassidy recommended that the FBI investigation into the allegations against Kavanaugh “should include potential coordination between the Democrat operatives and lawyers that assisted in bringing them forth.”
“Just like their other tactics throughout this confirmation process, Senate Democrats’ demands for an FBI investigation have never been about getting the facts or finding the truth,” he wrote. “What Senate Democrats really want is more time to smear Judge Kavanaugh, regardless of the toll it takes on his wife, his daughters, and our country.”
Cassidy argued that any new allegations that may surface will be deemed “credible” by Democrats, regardless of how “ludicrous” they are.
“They will attack anyone who disagrees,” he wrote, reiterating the true motives behind the tactics by Democrats.
Delay, delay, delay. That’s all they want, because their goal is to do anything and everything to smear any nominee — anyone — and block Republicans from appointing another justice to the Supreme Court,” Cassidy added. “We cannot and should not let that happen.”
