Former Trump Advisor: If FBI Can Investigate Hillary’s Emails In A Few Days, A Week Should Be No Problem For Kavanaugh

Font Size:

Former Trump campaign aide Michael Caputo on Sunday said that one week should be plenty of time for the FBI to complete its investigation into accusations against Judge Kavanaugh given that the agency “looked at 650,000 of Hillary Clinton’s emails in just 24 to 36 hours.”


“I think there is an expectation to scrutinize a Supreme Court justice nominee, of course,” said Caputo, responding to CNN host Fredricka Whitfield’s question about whether the public expects the scrutiny Kavanaugh is receiving. “They don’t expect somebody to be actually stripped down and marched around like Brett Kavanaugh was. I don’t think they expect senators to call him evil. I don’t think they expect activists to be screaming at them as they walk down the hall.”

“I don’t think anything about this is normal at all,” he added. “I’ve gotta tell you when he is confirmed — and I think he will be — we don’t know what is going to come out of the FBI investigation. I think it’ll be over in a week. We have been hearing for a week about how Clarence Thomas’s only took three days and we all know the FBI looked at 650,000 of Hillary Clinton’s e-mails in just 24 to 36 hours. So, it’ll just take a week.” (RELATED: NYT Report Quotes Former Top FBI Official Who Says Kavanaugh Investigation ‘Can Easily Be Done In A Week’)

Caputo then expressed concern about potential talk about riots coming from “social media accounts associated with Black Lives Matter.”
