Today’s Action: Don’t let Trump rig the FBI investigation into Kavanaugh

Your resistance is working.

Thanks to the thousands of victims of sexual assault and their allies rallying behind Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Trump has been forced to call for an FBI investigation into Judge Kavanaugh’s alleged history of sexual abuse.

But the effort is far from over because Trump and GOP leaders in the Senate are still determined to break the investigation from inside, giving the FBI an arbitrary deadline of this Friday to complete their work. And worse, they’ve placed other crippling restrictions on the FBI:

  • Not permitted to interview Kavanaugh’s third accuser, Julie Swetnick, and other key witnesses as well.
  • In fact, Republicans have vetted and provided the only names that can be interviewed, and no one else, even if new evidence is uncovered during the investigation.
  • Kavanaugh’s college binge drinking may not be investigated.

This is UNACCEPTABLE, a kangaroo court designed to crush Dr. Ford. But we’ve pushed this far, and we’re not stopping now.

Call or email your Senators again. Tell them that any restrictions – time or scope – on the FBI investigation of Kavanaugh is a farce of our justice system, and demand they do everything in their power to release the arbitrary limitations.

Before allegations of sexual misconduct emerged, Kavanaugh was already the most scandal plagued Supreme Court nominee in modern history, having lied and misled the Senate under oath even as Republicans refused to disclose thousands of documents relevant to his nomination. He was also handpicked for his position against prosecuting sitting presidents and his opposition to Roe v. Wade.

And yet, Kavanaugh, Trump, and Senate Republicans’ handling of these allegations is worse yet. In limiting this investigation, refusing to let the facts come out, refusing to even hear from all Kavanaugh’s accusers and witnesses, Republicans have sent a signal that they want Kavanaugh confirmed not because they don’t believe he has committed these heinous acts but because they don’t care.

That is beyond unacceptable. For Dr. Ford, we have to be better than that. For the countless victims inspired by her courage to come forward with their own stories, we must be better than that. For the integrity of the Supreme Court, the Senate, and the future of our country, we must be better.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Senators and demand they make every effort to publicize these restrictions on the FBI and release the Kavanaugh sexual assault investigation from its severe, politicized limits.
