It is not surprising that the FBI failed to find any evidence to support the claims made by women who have known Brett Kavanaugh. It is also not surprising the Donald Trump supported the FBI investigation. Donald Trump has long been attacking institutions that have dared to stand in his way. He took an issue that the FBI was investigating to the director of the FBI and said, “let the Michael Flynn thing go.” The director at the time, James Comey refused and then documented the conversation and then not long after he was fired. The message is, that if you don’t follow my rules, you will be fired. If you stand in my way, I will ruin you. Intimidation instead of Integrity.
Donald Trump owns the FBI. He knows that his new director needs a job. He leads by intimidation. He loves dictators who act in the very same way. This is not freedom. This is a dictatorship…with a willing populus who continues to defend him as the hero.
