Giving Democrats what they want is never enough, so to see them once again changing their demands in the confirmation circus they’ve created around Judge Brett Kavanaugh should surprise no one.

After weeks of demanding an FBI investigation, Democrats began questioning the legitimacy of an FBI investigation within hours of its announcement. It’s not about Kavanaugh, it’s about the fact that President Trump nominated him, nominated anyone, and it’s about power.

Listen to The Daily Daily Caller Podcast:

Hawaii Sen. Mazie Hirono, one of the most vocal liberals who had called for the FBI to launch an investigation, said she feared the inquiry it launched Friday would be a “farce” because it’s supposed to be done in a week. Meanwhile, Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton pointed out on CBS News how Dr. Ford’s story could have been handled discretely, had Democrats wanted to honor Christine Blasey Ford’s request of anonymity, by using the existing Judiciary Committee protocols. Had they gone this route, however, it’s likely no one would have ever heard Ford’s name, which is why Democrats chose to leak it and demand a public hearing in the first place.

Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake cut a deal with Democrats for the investigation in the hope of “healing” some of the partisan divisions surrounding the fight. All he really did was pay off gestapo tactics, thereby ensuring their continued use and escalation.

The whole thing is a disgrace, and Democrats should be ashamed of themselves. But the media is on their team, and they’re emboldened. They got a one-week delay, now their new goal is a longer delay. And they won’t let anything stand in the way of their goal.
