ABA Asks for Delay & FBI Probe of Judge Kavanaugh


ABA president Robert Carlson sent a letter to committee chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and ranking member Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) just hours after Kavanaugh and his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, testified before the panel on Thursday.

They requested the confirmation be delayed until the FBI investigates.

“We make this request because of ABA’s respect for the rule of law and due process under law,” Carlson’s letter obtained by the media reads. “The basic principles that underscore the Senate’s constitutional duty of advice and consent on federal judicial nominees require nothing less than a careful examination of the accusations and facts by the FBI.”

Senate Republicans announced Thursday night that they were planning to move forward with a Friday morning committee vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination.

The bar is a left-wing organization and Democrats have undoubtedly gotten to them. An FBI probe is inappropriate as Joe Biden clearly stated during the Justice Thomas hearings.


  1. Blumenthal begins and sounds conciliatory wanted to work across the aisle and compares to anger in a family. But, then, starts again with a “delay”.

    These Democrats are in FULL PANIC MODE. They NEVER expected that Kavanaugh would garner support with HIS testimony. Also, I think they are really taken aback that Kavanaugh had the “guts” to put THEM on the spot. How Dare He.

    And, “her public service to the nation”, meaning, “I want my Abortion!”.

  2. Booker is going on and on and on and its as irritating as the bunny.

    I would just love a Republican to bring up BOOKER’s sexual harrassment that he himself admitted to. Then see HIS reaction. Would he be indignant. I’ll just bet so.

  3. Many on both sides are saying they don’t believe Feinstein would leak the letter. Hasn’t she already leaked confidential documents and blamed it on an illness.

  4. It’s really getting old hearing all these Democrats going on and on about postponing the vote and submit it to the FBI. How in hell is the FBI going to investigate when Ms Ford cannot remember ANY of the pertinent details, When it happened, Where it happened. This HAS to be the starting point. But that’s not all. They want to include the other two accusations, which is undoubtedly another stalling tactic.

  5. Hirono on why she walked out of Judiciary Cmte in protest: This has got to stop. So I walked out. I’m not going to participate in this charade anymore.

    So she’s admitting they are perpetrating a charade.

  6. Sen. Whitehouse is revealing the reason for their obstruction. He is upset that the present Court is leaning to much “special interests” of the “right”. But when the Court leans His way I guess that’s just fine. The Democrats are just upset they are not getting their way.

  7. It’s been widely admitted that this is all about abortion. When it comes to these feminists, who despise men, why should it even matter to Them.

  8. How long is this crap going to go on for, confirm Kavanagh now. I suggest all deplorables inundate the ABA themselves and ask on what evidence can they justify an FBI investigation everyone she has named have not backed her version of events. Her polygraph mentioned nothing of Judge Kavanaugh. This is complete horsesh*t, horsesh*t.

    • I agree. The Dems won’t stop. I think Blasey was sympathetic but not credible. She lied more than once and all media is reporting she’s credible. It is the twilight zone.
