Well, look at what we have here. From NTK Network, a flashback from the Clarence Thomas hearings, who also face allegations of sexual misconduct from Anita Hill. Thomas was eventually confirmed, but by a razor thin margin. There was an FBI report, but then-Senate Committee chair Joe Biden (D-DE) said it was worthless to cite. Why?
“FBI explicitly does not, in this or any other case, reach a conclusion, period. Period,” said Biden at the time.
“The reason why we cannot rely on the FBI report—you would not like it if we did—because it is inconclusive. They say, ‘He said, she said, and they said. Period,” he added.

In this current Supreme Court fight, Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez have lobbed allegations against President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Ford alleges a drunken 17-year-old Kavanaugh tried to sexually assault her at a high school party, while Ramirez alleges he exposed himself at a party at Yale. Both cases lack evidence. And by lack, I mean there is none. It’s unprovable. Witnesses in both cases also refute the accuser’s story. Ford can’t remember how she got to this particular house party, who planned it, or who owned the house. For Ramirez, her story is so shoddy that The New York Timesdidn’t do a deep-dive because they couldn’t confirm anything.
