JONATHAN TURLEY: Boofed is the new Borked: Democrats lay a perjury trap for Brett Kavanaugh. “Salacious terms in a high school yearbook could end up sinking Brett Kavanaugh. If that becomes the standard for future confirmations, we’re all boofed.”
Fox News contributor Jason Chaffetz said Monday on Outnumbered Overtime that the FBI investigation into Brett Kavanaugh will tear the country apart.
Chaffetz said that the Democratic push to block Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court at all costs shows “what they’re up to.”
Many high-profile Republicans have publicly stated they believe the FBI probe is a tactic to delay and ultimately stop Kavanaugh from sitting on the high court.
“I think the Democrats are overplaying their hand. The resistance movement, this ‘scorched-Earth’ that they promised and they want, they’re getting,” he said.
“I did see him giving red solo cups to quite a few girls,” said Swetnick. “I saw him around the punchbowls. I don’t know what he did.”
Swetnick also claimed in her initial statement that the boys at these parties would line up outside bedrooms, waiting their turn to rape the incapacitated women inside. But she told Snow that the boys were merely huddled near the doorways of the rooms.
“I would see boys standing outside rooms, congregated together, sort of like a gauntlet,” she said. “I would see them laughing.”
It seemed quite possible Swetnick was reading far too much into this.
According to Swetnick, she was sexually assaulted at one of these parties. She could not say with any certainty that Kavanaugh was involved. She recalled being “shoved into a room” and hearing laughter, and that Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge were present. These are details that resemble Ford’s story so closely it raises suspicion (of Swetnick, not of Kavanaugh).
Read the whole thing.
.@SenFeinstein indicates that the FBI report on Kavanaugh should NOT be made public: “It would seem to me that if people are going to be identified this ought to be held very close and not."
"I think the investigation ought to be closely held," she reiterated.

Plus: “69 percent agree with Kavanaugh’s pronouncement and Sen. Lindsey Graham’s (R-S.C.) statement that the proceedings have been a national disgrace.”
