The FBI set up a citizen tip line to facilitate the ability of the American people to provide information about Brett Kavanaugh’s suitability to be a Supreme Court Justice. Unfortunately, rather than investigate those tips, the FBI handed them off to Trump’s White House Counsel’s office.

The people who called the tip line had every right to expect the information they provided would be handled responsibility and investigated diligently by the FBI. Instead, it was handed over to a Trump and White House Counsel Don McGahn, both of whom were determined to install Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court by any means necessary. Indeed, the same Don McGhan who spent years fighting tooth and nail to keep from having to testify before Congress doubt trump’s criminal conduct.

This video discusses what Congress and the Department of Justice Inspector General’s Office and the Biden administration should do now that to address this significant process failure.
