@jabberjw  Have you ever bothered to look through Joe Biden’s record on crime and race? His close friendship with vile segregationist Strom Thurmond? His treatment of Anita Hill? What you’re really saying is “don’t make true statements about my preferred candidate.”

FBI investigation is standard procedure. That’s what Anita Hill got. Dr Christine Blasey Ford wants standard procedure. Republican senators are lying when they say they can’t give Dr Ford standard procedure. Every Republican senator is lying about that.

Republicans have learned nothing from Anita Hill. President Bush asked the FBI to do its job and investigate Hill’s allegations, which it did. Now, under the Trump administration, Republicans want to do even less by blocking any investigation into Dr. Blasey Ford’s allegations.

Fact check: The FBI can investigate Dr. Blasey Ford’s allegations as part of its background investigation – that is their job. To say otherwise is FALSE. It investigated Anita Hill’s allegations of sexual harassment against Clarence Thomas. It should investigate this too.

Many worry about how Dr Ford’s allegations are being treated, see parallels with Anita Hill and wonder has anything changed. I think the country at large has changed a lot, but not the mindset of certain powerful men in Congress. Will that imbalance be reconciled in November?

The Anita Hill hearings were a travesty but even then there was an FBI investigation and 22 witnesses over 3 days For Ford, Republicans want no investigation, no witnesses except Ford and Kavanaugh, 1 day Somehow it’s 27 years later and we are taking allegations less seriously

Isn't this exactly what Orrin Hatch said about Anita Hill? “The claims are wholly unverifiable, and come at the tail-end of a process that was already marred by ugly innuendo, dishonesty, and the nastiest form of our politics." - Orrin Hatch today on accusation against Kavanaugh

In 1991, the FBI reopened a background investigation. Anita Hill and Clarence Thomas were interviewed. Every day more people came forward claiming firsthand knowledge of the events. It’s time for the FBI to do the same today. Why are Republicans resisting an investigation?

This movement to root out harassment and assault started with Anita Hill. We owe her a debt of gratitude. Our culture is finally catching up. Thank you, Anita, for your courage.
