Sen. Bernie Sanders on Saturday sent a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley demanding that the FBI, in addition to investigating assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, also examine the truthfulness of Kavanaugh’s statements made under oath Thursday before the Senate panel.
“In order for the FBI investigation regarding Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to be complete, it is imperative the bureau must not only look into the accusations made by Dr. [Christine Blasey] Ford, Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick, it should also examine the veracity of his testimony before the Judiciary Committee,” Sanders wrote in the letter.
