Ford demands interview in FBI probe

As the time frame for completion of the FBI inquiry draws nearer, Christine Blasey Ford’s attorneys sought a call Tuesday with bureau officials to discuss the investigation

The FBI is expected to wrap up its time-limited probe of the allegations against Brett Kavanaugh as soon as Wednesday.

Christine Blasey Ford’s attorneys on Tuesday implored the FBI to interview her and act on investigative leads they have provided for its inquiry into sexual misconduct allegations against Brett Kavanaugh.

“It is inconceivable that the FBI could conduct a thorough investigation of Dr. Ford’s allegations without interviewing her, Judge Kavanaugh, or the witnesses we have identified in our letters to you,” attorneys Debra Katz and Michael Bromwich wrote to top FBI officials in a letter obtained by POLITICO.

The bureau is expected to wrap up its time-limited probe of the allegations against President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee as soon as Wednesday, teeing up a final Senate vote on Kavanaugh later this week as planned by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. The Kentucky Republican also said Tuesday that the FBI’s final report will be available to senators only, not the public.

As the time frame for completion of the inquiry draws nearer, Ford’s attorneys sought a call later Tuesday with bureau officials to discuss the investigation. Katz and Bromwich noted in their letter that they had furnished “a series of emails and letters in which we identified witnesses and evidence that would likely assist the FBI in its investigation,” but have yet to hear back.
