Democrats keep calling for an FBI investigation of Judge Kavanaugh. It’s a pointless stall tactic. Besides, Kavanaugh has already been subjected to multiple background checks by the FBI.
Plus, as then Senator Joe Biden pointed out in 1991, it’s a meaningless pursuit.

Flashback: Biden in 1991 Contradicts Senate Dems Today Calling for FBI Investigation Into Sexual Misconduct Allegations
Biden addressed Hill’s accusations during the confirmation hearing, telling Thomas, who was nominated by Republican President George H.W. Bush, that the “presumption” is with him and that the Senate would be hearing more witnesses who would come in to corroborate his position and Hill’s.
“Judge, this is less directed at you than it is to my pontificating colleagues, Democrat and Republican alike,” Biden said in a clip unearthed by the NTK Network. “So, judge, I have not made my judgment, based upon this proceeding, because we have not heard all the evidence.”
Biden then addressed calls for an FBI investigation into the matter.
“The last thing I will point out, the next person who refers to an FBI report as being worth anything, obviously doesn’t understand anything. FBI explicitly does not in this or any other case reach a conclusion. Period. Period,” Biden said.
“The reason why we cannot rely on the FBI report [is] you would not like it if we did, because it is inconclusive. They say, ‘He said, she said, and they said.’ Period,” Biden continued. “So when people wave an FBI report before you, understand they do not, they do not, they do not reach conclusions … They do not make recommendations.”

How awkward for Democrats.
