One thing for sure, the Democrat's reaction shows you how the investigation turned out.

Zitat
Democrats on Thursday blasted the FBI investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, calling it a "sham" and "a horrific cover-up." The lawmakers spoke after having access to the report in a secure facility, arguing that the investigation was limited in scope and incomplete, and claiming that the White House directed the FBI's probe, leaving key witnesses off the interview list.

"The whole thing is sham. Five days to do the investigation," said Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va

Kaine noted that many witnesses who may have relevant information about the allegations were not interviewed. He cited Deborah Ramirez, who accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct while they were students at Yale; possible corroborating witnesses were not interviewed.

"And so, here is what they do. There is now a report. One copy. Only one copy that's available in the Senate SCIF,” he said, referring to a secure location where lawmakers can read the report for a limited amount of time. "So they don't want 100 senators to read it. I'm not allowed to discuss it. The public can't see it. It's a complete sham."

Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., had even harsher words.

Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., questioned the legitimacy of the probe in a tweet after being briefed on Thursday.

“I read the FBI report. This whole thing is a sham. This stunted, strangled investigation was designed to provide cover, not to provide the truth,” he said.

He later told CNN after reading the report: "This is an example of what a horrific cover-up this investigation is."

Senators are not allowed to speak publicly about the contents of the FBI background check report, which is standard procedure in such cases.
