On the heels of reports that the FBI is pushing to wrap up its investigation into sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, lawyers representing his most prominent accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, said they are still waiting to hear from investigators.
Citing sources, NBC News reported Tuesday that federal agents would not interview Ford, who also goes by Dr. Blasey professionally, because the White House reportedly felt that Ford’s testimony in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee had already enough.
In response, Ford’s lawyers excoriated the FBI in a letter, saying they have heard nothing from the agency regarding their offer for an interview.
“We also sent [the FBI] a series of emails and letters in which we identified witnesses and evidence that would likely assist the FBI in its investigation into Mr. Kavanaugh’s sexual assault of Dr. Ford and asked you to forward them to the supervisory agent,” the letter from Michael Bromwich and Debra Katz read. “Despite these efforts, we have received no response from anyone involved in this investigation, and no response to our offer for Dr. Ford to be interviewed.”
The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that the FBI probe could conclude as early as Tuesday or Wednesday — several days ahead of the deadline — but will not be released to the public.
