As the Senate got closer to voting on Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court, John Clune, an attorney for Deborah Ramirez, the Boulder woman who's accused Kavanaugh of thrusting his penis in her face at a party 35 years ago, said that the FBI's investigation into Ramirez's allegations against him hadn't been thorough.

Readers have had heated responses to that story, as well as all things Kavanaugh.

Gregory argues:
The statute of limitations on caring expired long ago.... #MoveOn.
Marcelo notes:
Again, white men love siding with people like Kavanaugh... you can see it in the comments of posts like this one.
Whitley explains:
They asked for a week delay for the FBI. They got a week delay. Now the whole thing is a sham because nothing turned up for them. It's a never-ending cycle.
Mark says:
That's because there's nothing to give a fuck about. 0 evidence or proof. Her word means absolutely 0. Kavanaugh should sue her dumbass for slander.
But Sher argues:
Their rigged system wouldn't work if they actually cared about the truth...
