Dem Senator Says Confirmation Vote on Kavanaugh Should Be Delayed Pending Outcome of FBI Probe Into Sexual Assault Allegations

The U.S. Senate should wait on voting for the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court until the FBI conducts an investigation into sexual misconduct allegations.

That’s according to Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Feinstein’s statement follows a Washington Post report that detailed a first-hand account of sexual abuse by California professor Christine Blasey Ford. 

In a written statement, Feinstein said the professor’s allegations, which include being pinned down, groped and forced into silence at a high school party, were “extremely serious and bear heavily on Judge Kavanaugh’s character.”

Whether Feinstein gets his way is another story. At least three Democrats said Sunday that the confirmation hearings should continue, despite the allegations.

Allegations of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh have been forwarded to the FBI by the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee.

The accusations, which the FBI had not known previously, involved “a vague sexual misconduct allegation against Kavanaugh dating back to his high school days,” two sources familiar with the allegations told NBC News

“I have received information from an individual concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court,” Sen. Diane Feinstein, D-Calif., said. “That individual strongly requested confidentiality, declined to come forward or press the matter further, and I have honored that decision. I have, however, referred the matter to federal investigative authorities.”

Sources said the allegation was “sexual in nature” and came in a letter, but details were murky.

The FBI has not opened an investigation.

Supreme Court Nominee Stumbled Over Question about Mueller Probe

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was caught off guard and stumbled with his response when asked if he had discussed Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation with an attorney at President Trump’s attorney’s law firm.

The question by Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., came nearly 12 hours after the confirmation hearing began Wednesday.

“Be sure about your answer, sir,” Harris told Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh didn’t answer the question directly, asking, “Is there a person you’re talking about? I’m not sure I know everyone who works at that law firm.”

“I’m not remembering,” any conversation, he said.

Harris, a former prosecutor, shot back, “How can you not remember whether or not you had a conversation about Robert Mueller or his investigation with anyone at that law firm? This investigation has only been going on for so long.”

Kavanaugh asked if Harris was questioning him on a specific attorney.

“I think you’re thinking of someone and you don’t want to tell us,” Harris replied.

Kavanaugh never answered the questions, insisting he would need a “roster of people” who worked at the firm.
