James Comey Approves of FBI Investigation into Kavanaugh, Calls Deadline ‘Idiotic’ in New York Times Op-Ed
Former FBI Director James Comey expressed his approval of the reopening of the bureau's background check into Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, writing in a New York Times op-ed that the assigned deadline is "idiotic." "It is idiotic to put a shot clock on the F.B.I. But it is better to give professionals seven days to find facts than have no professional investigation at all," he wrote in the op-ed published Sunday.
