FBI Does Not Want to Investigate the Kavanaugh Accusations

Sexual misconduct allegation against U.S. Supreme Court nominee echoes case raised against Roy Moore

Grassley told reporters staff had reached out repeatedly to Ford, but had not yet received any reply. "We still haven't heard from Dr. Ford, so do they want to have the hearing or not?" "Nothing the Federal Bureau of Investigation or any other investigator does would have any bearing on what Dr. Ford tells the committee, so there is no reason for any further delay".

Ms Ford detailed her allegation in a letter sent in July to Senator Dianne Feinstein, the committee's top Democrat.

Speaking to the Values Voter Summit, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell predicts Judge Brett Kavanaugh will be confirmed to the Supreme Court "in the very near future"; reaction from attorney and journalist Tim O'Brien.

The former Democratic presidential nominee said on MSNBC on Tuesday the relevant precedent is the FBI's investigation of Anita Hill's sexual-harassment allegation against Clarence Thomas in 1991.

Ford missed a 10 a.m. deadline this morning to submit her prepared testimony and biography to the Senate Judiciary Committee for a Monday hearing.

"I have never done anything like what the accuser describes - to her or to anyone", Kavanaugh said Monday. "I believe her. And now we have to do more than say, 'Well, look at the timing!' and 'Well, it's all politically motivated!'" Hirono said to Politico.

Mr. Trump's tweets come as Ford, her lawyers and the Senate Judiciary negotiate her possible testimony next week.

As the scandal drags on, Donald Trump has once again voiced his support for the Supreme Court Justice nominee, noting Tuesday that he was "not a man who deserves this", and stressing that the allegations "should've been brought up long ago".

"We're going to plow right through it", he said. When she tried to scream, she said, he put his hand over her mouth. Blasey Ford is said to be testifying before the Senate on Monday.

Sen. Susan Collins (R., Maine) wants each to testify under oath before the committee, and to answer questions from opposing counsel.

Ford's lawyers responded on Tuesday, saying that she would not testify publicly until a "full investigation by law enforcement officials" had been completed.

While Judge Kavanaugh says he's ready to share his story on Monday, Dr. Ford has not agreed to either a private or public hearing with the committee. They have kept in loose contact, she said.

Over the weekend, Ford went public with her allegation in an interview with the Washington Post, claiming that Kavanaugh attempted to sexually assault her at a party in the 80s and that she did not speak of this until 2012, during couples therapy.

Grassley has rejected Leahy's request for such an investigation. She also has questioned the speed of the hearing and the fact that there will be only two witnesses, Kavanaugh and Ford.
