However, given all the madness associated with the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh for SCOTUS, we probably had our doubts that the current FBI investigation could extract some facts from the he said/she said. We also wondered if the one-week deadline could significantly limit what could possibly be found out.
In a highly conversational opinion piece in The New York Times he reassures us that both the FBI agents and the processes they use are up to the job. Even given the one-week deadline. Here is that opinion-editorial.
Essentially, what Comey says is that, yes, this assignment to the FBI is constituted to be deeply flawed.
However, the agents are trained to ask and keep asking the right questions. As information seeps or gushes out, then the agents can pass those bits and pieces onto their networks around the world to do further probing. Inevitably, the truth gets shaken loose.
The interrogation means that those being questioned cannot hide behind a lawyer's statement. There that person is, sitting across from two FBI agents.
No, the final report does not make conclusions. But it does provide enough factual material from which drawing conclusions should not be very difficult.
Therefore, in a week or so, a resolution to The Kavanaugh Matter indeed may be possible. As Comey notes, one side won't be pleased.
