FBI called in over sexual assault charges against Brett Kavanaugh

As the confirmation hearings of Brett Kavanaugh steam on, the opposition may have just found the dynamite needed to derail it. Democrats have called in the FBI over long-standing sexual misconduct allegations against the Trump nominee.

Lead by Sen. Diane Feinstein, members of the Senate judiciary committee alerted the Federal Bureau of Investigation to the decades-old allegations. According to reports, the charges date from a woman who accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault while attending Georgetown Preparatory School. Said woman has also reportedly enlisted the counsel of Deborah Katz, a lawyer renown for prosecuting rapists and who has represented high-profile women as part of the #MeToo movement. The law does not specify a statute of limitations for sexual felonies.

Kerri Kupec, a spokeswoman for the White House, did not deny the charges against Kavanaugh. Rather, she blamed democrats for forestalling the confirmation vote. A spokesman for Republican Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley said “At this time, [Grassley] has not seen the letter in question, and is respecting the request for confidentiality. There’s no plan to change the committee’s consideration of Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination.”

Republicans hope to hold a full vote on Kavanaugh’s confirmation by Sept. 20. Confirming 53-year-old Kavanaugh to the high court would likely result in a major shift to the right which would last for years to come.
