btw: The American Bar Association - the national, central, and famously conservative professional association of American lawyers most often relied upon for professional assessment of the skills of prospective Federal judges - has taken the unusual step of intervening in an ongoing confirmation process: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/201...tt-kavanaugh-vote-until-fbi-investigates.html they were willing to rate Kavanaugh "well qualified" legally and technically, but not to lend their tacit approval to this travesty of a confirmation for the Supreme Court. They officially and formally recommend the confirmation vote be postponed until the withheld evidence of Kavanaugh's personal behavior and professional career has been produced and examined. Like everybody - literally, everybody - except the Republican Party leadership and its media flacks, they think an FBI investigation is indicated and routine and expected here. And there is no reason to dismiss their recommendation. There is no rush, no emergency, no hurry, in this matter.
