FBI Concludes Investigation into Kavanaugh; Democrats Stomp Their Feet and Whine

The FBI has concluded its investigation into Supreme Court Nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
Their findings? A whole lot of nothing.
The official report has not been made public; however, GOP Senators who have reviewed the document say investigators were unable to substantiate claims of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh.
As expected, Democrats aren't satisfied with the thoroughness of the FBI's investigation. Senator Dianne Feinstein, in particular, was quite 'fussy' with investigators' failure to expose Kavanaugh as a serial dry-humping rapist (and possibly the Zodiac killer).
"Notable in this report is what's not in it," Feinstein said in an afternoon statement to the press. "As we noted by the White House, the FBI did not interview Brett Kavanaugh, nor did the FBI interview Dr. Blasey Ford. And we've seen even more press reports of people who wanted to speak with the FBI, but were not interviewed."
WIBC hosts Hammer and Nigel responded to Democrats political temper-tantrum Thursday:
"You know what else isn't in this report, Ms. Feinstein? Corroboration."
"There's no evidence in this report, it's not damning. Everything that we already knew has been validated."
"The other little thing she said in her diatribe is that she's had the opportunity to read 'some' of it, but not all of it. How would she know that it's incomplete if she didn't read all of it?"
Meanwhile, the fight over what Kavanaugh did or didn't do has had a somewhat unexpected result: Republican base voters are suddenly telling pollsters that they are considerably more enthusiastic about voting in 33 days' time.
"In a new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll, Republicans had closed a 10-point enthusiasm deficit with Democrats in July, which is down to just 2 points now. In July, 78% of Democrats and 68% of Republicans said the November elections were "very important." Now, 80% of Democrats say the same while 78% of Republicans do too.
That same poll shows that the Democratic edge on the generic ballot question -- if the election were held today would you vote for the Democratic or Republican candidate in your district -- has been cut in half (from 12 points to 6) between mid-September and now."
