Twitter blasts Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) after she said the sham FBI investigation into the sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh was ” very thorough.”
Collins is quoted as saying, “It appears to be a very thorough investigation.” She gave no comment on how she plans to vote, but says she’s going to read it in full later today.

So, she didn’t read it when she deemed it “thorough.” We already know how she plans to vote — yes for serial liar and accused drunk Brett Kavanaugh.
Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) also echoed her comments, adding that he had not seen additional corroboration of the allegations against Kavanaugh. Um, how could you? The investigation found nothing because it was looking for nothing. The FBI did not interview Kavanaugh or Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.
Jeff Flake says he agrees with Susan Collins that the FBI investigation was "thorough" and that "no new corroborative information came out of it – that's accurate." Flake adds: "Thus far, we've seen no new credible corroboration — no new corroboration at all."

Sen. Dianne Feinstein said: “The most notable part of this report is what’s not in it.” “The FBI did not interview Brett Kavanaugh, nor did the FBI interview Dr. Blasey Ford.”
Twitter reacts just as you would expect:

When you have an opportunity to do the right thing and you put on political blinders, you are an embarrassment to your family, your constituents and your country. Think of the millions of women’s lives this decision will impact. @SenatorCollins @JeffFlake @lisamurkowski

Not really caving. She was always going to vote for him. I just can’t wait to see her cry when that huge war chest gets given to her opponent when she’s up for reelection.

Susan Collins looking at a scrap of filthy fabric: “It appears to be a very thorough blanket.”
Susan Collins looking at a thimble full of uncooked rice: “It appears to be a seven-course dinner.”

This was not a thorough investigation and you know it Susan Collins. You were going to vote yes regardless. This investigation was a sham.
