On the “Ben Shapiro Election Special” on Sunday night on Fox News, Daily Wire editor-in-chief Ben Shapiro (pictured above) called out Senate Democrats for their attempts to smear Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as guilty — because he did not call on the FBI to investigate claims against himself.

The fact that Kavanaugh has repeatedly stated that he would comply with anything the Senate Judiciary Committee deemed necessary apparently wasn’t enough for some — and Shapiro took on those who view the nominee as guilty by using their own logic against them to great effect, as The Daily Wire reported.

Shapiro listed accusations against Senate Democrats that, according to their own reasoning, deserve investigation by the FBI.

He began with Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.): “Sen. Feinstein — why aren’t you calling for a more complete FBI investigation into the alleged Chinese spy in your San Francisco office, who served as your driver as well as a liaison to the Asian-American community in California?” said Shapiro.

“You say the FBI never informed you of any compromise of national security information, and that the staffer ‘never had access’ to classified or sensitive information,” said Shapiro. “But how could they know that without interviewing you and all the members of your staff? Sen. Feinstein, the only reason you would deny a fuller FBI investigation is guilt, by your own standard.”

He then took on Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.): “Or, how about you, Sen. Durbin?” said Shapiro. “In 2014, an investigation by The Chicago Tribune found that your wife lobbied on behalf of clients who then received federal funding you promoted. Your office announced the grants, but you claimed you did ‘nothing in terms of securing the money.’ Well, how about a full investigation to get to the bottom of the matter?”

Next up was Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.).

“Or you, Sen. Gillibrand? In 2015, you received a gift worth nearly a half million dollars from your husband’s British parents,” Shapiro pointed out. “That was more than your and your husband’s gross income that year. Your spokesperson declined to say why your in-laws gave the money or what you did with it. So how about it? Full FBI investigation or you’re guilty, right?”

Shapiro then moved on to Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.): “How about you, Sen. Blumenthal? You asked Judge Kavanaugh whether he knew the legal term ‘falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus’ — false on one thing, false on all. Well, Senator, you’ve stated that you served in Vietnam despite the fact that you sought multiple deferments and then signed up for the Marine Reserve to avoid going to war. Which seems kind of dishonest. How about the FBI checks into your comments? You know, for the sake of honesty.”

Next up: Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.): “And you, Sen. Booker? What about an FBI investigation into an admission you made in 1992, when you were writing for the Stanford student newspaper? You said that you groped one of your friends. ‘After having my hand pushed away once, I reached my mark,’ you wrote. ‘Our groping ended soon and while no relationship ensued, a friendship did. You see, the next week in school she told me that she was drunk that night and didn’t really know what she was doing.’ Sounds just like something Spartacus would do.”

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) was next to be lambasted: “And what about you, Sen. Harris? When you took over the California AG [attorney general] office, you announced a statewide task force to tackle mortgage fraud. And then your mortgage fraud office did pretty much nothing,” pointed out Shapiro. “For years. I think maybe an FBI investigation might be a good way of clearing your name.

Lastly, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) was under the microscope: “And you, Sen. Whitehouse. According to Politico, as lawmakers closed in on a deal over a bill called the 21st Century Cures Act, you bought shares in pharmaceutical companies. You were actually sitting on a Senate committee overseeing health care at the time,” noted Shapiro.

“The day President [Barack] Obama signed the bill, you started selling your pharmaceutical stock. How about we have the FBI check out your phone logs?”

“Why not just have the FBI investigate every allegation against everyone in public life? And if you object, you’re guilty. I mean, that’s how this works, right?”

Shapiro proceeded to highlight the absurdity of the Democrats’ premise against Kavanaugh: “Why not just have the FBI investigate every allegation against everyone in public life? And if you object, you’re guilty. I mean, that’s how this works, right?”
