Bernie: Investigate Kavanaugh For Lying To Congress

This morning Bernie Sanders sent a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassely in which he called for a separate FBI investigation into Brett Kavanaugh’s alleged lies to the US Senate.

“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, Debora Ramirez and Julie Swetnick, it should also examine the veracity of his testimony before the Judiciary Committee,” Sanders wrote in the letter.

Sanders also said the FBI investigation should not be constrained to one week, as has been agreed to by multiple Republican senators. “If you are concerned with a delay in this confirmation process, remember that Senate Republicans refused to allow the Senate to consider Merrick Garland’s nomination to the Supreme Court for nearly a year,” he wrote.
