It’s late Wednesday as I write this. The FBI was supposed to wrap up by today or yesterday, by some accounts. They hardly seem to be doing that. Apparently, the July 1, 1982 party detailed in Judge Kavanaugh’s notes (being a few years older than that crowd I must confess I’ve heard “brewskis” countless times but never shortened to “skis”) in his diary and covered in some detail by Byron York in the Washington Examiner, is now the target of FBI investigators. How much additional information can they unearth?

Endless amounts if it were up to Democrats.

As well, aside from interviewing Mark Judge, Tim Gaudette, Chris Garret, and Leland Keyser, the FBI is now interviewing more people. We also have contradicting details about where the party Professor Ford was supposedly assaulted was, given how far from the Columbia Country Club Tim Gaudette’s home was (around 11 miles). And the fact it was a townhouse rather than a large home on its own lot.

But memory is hard to reconstruct after all those decades and that’s one reason why Professor Ford’s notes from her therapy sessions are so vital to the FBI investigation. She won’t give them to the Senate Judiciary Committee, however, until she’s been interviewed by the FBI.

And Democrats also want Ford’s husband who supposedly was the first person Christine Ford told about Kavanaugh back in 2012. And they want the FBI to interview Judge Kavanaugh himself. And they surely have a further list ready when and if those interviews take place. And they are ready to denounce the whole process they demanded as inadequate should somehow all the interviews they demand be actually carried out by the FBI.

On another front, Senator Feinstein has accused the GOP of violating the rape shield part of the Violence Against Women Act, passed in 1994 in part due to the Clarence Thomas hearings and Anita Hill’s supposed unjust treatment at the hands of GOP senators.

Senator Cory Booker meanwhile said the following a day or so ago:

And then, ultimately, not whether he is innocent or guilty, this is not a trial, but ultimately, have enough questions be raised that we should not move on to another candidate in that long list put together by the Heritage Foundation and Federalist Society. Move on to another candidate because ultimately the Supreme Court is not an entitlement.

In fact, Booker means exactly that.

In his view, the Supreme Court is only for those entitled to sit on its hallowed bench. Entitled by their identity. Kavanaugh is older, conservative, male, and of course, he’s white. He therefore cannot sit on the Supreme Court, if you actually follow Senator Booker’s logic to its conclusion. Kavanaugh is not entitled to be a Justice of the Supreme Court, and whatever they can dig up to make sure they can convince people of this, they’ll use.

For the many people who clearly believe this, any way to stop Kavanaugh short of actual assassination is justified.

Will envelopes filled with white powder start appearing at GOP Judiciary Committee member’s offices or homes? Or at Judge Kavanaugh’s home?

It’s only Wednesday, but let’s hope not.
