Whitehouse requested FBI Director Chris Wray:
It strikes me very strongly as we sit right here as we speak and as we heard the highly effective testimony earlier this morning that the final time a lady got here ahead on this committee to testify to her allegations of sexual assault in her childhood. The witness was Christine Blasey Ford.
It appeared to me then, and it seems to me now that her testimony was swept beneath the rug in a affirmation stampede. It is extremely attainable that the FBI investigation of her allegations was simply as flawed, simply as constrained, simply as inappropriate because the investigation on this case. We don’t know. As a result of we don’t have solutions. I’m nonetheless attempting to get solutions from you and out of your group, together with Coons and others.
After greater than two years, our first letter requesting data was in August 1st of 2019. Our follow-up, we bought a response to yesterday. Two months afterward. Not coincidentally, I believe on the eve of your look as we speak. Some I mentioned we higher get one thing up there as a result of we haven’t answered this query. In that letter dated yesterday, the assistant director mentioned the FBI is working with the division to determine and make accessible sure related paperwork. So the reply wasn’t even a solution. It was a solution that at some date sooner or later, we’d truly get a solution. At present, now, are you able to give me the date when these sure related paperwork will probably be offered to us?
The FBI Has Been Stalling On The Brett Kavanaugh Investigation For Two Years
Sen. Whitehouse first requested the paperwork associated to the Kavanaugh investigation TWO YEARS AGO. The one response that the Senators obtained was an admission that the FBI didn’t conduct an actual investigation, and really turned over tips about Kavanaugh to the Trump White Home.
The investigation seems to have been a sham, and on condition that the FBI additionally lined up for Larry Nassar, the paperwork and a full congressional investigation are very important.
