Rep. Peters: Sexual Assault Allegations Against Judge Kavanaugh Deserve FBI Investigation
September 25, 2018
Today, U.S. Congressman Scott Peters (CA-52) released a statement following additional allegations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh:
“The American public deserves the truth about the very serious allegations of sexual assault multiple women have brought against Brett Kavanaugh. These claims should be investigated by the body uniquely capable of providing that scrutiny: the FBI. The FBI should reopen its investigation to vet these serious allegations just as it did when Anita Hill came forward against then-nominee Justice Clarence Thomas. Judge Kavanaugh should welcome this non-political inquiry and be eager for the FBI to reveal the facts.
“I joined my colleagues last week to send a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee calling for a full investigation, and for the vote to be postponed until all the facts are known. This is a lifetime appointment and it should not be rushed. ”
