The FBI’s investigation into Brett Kavanaugh appears to be nearing its end according several published reports. Moreover, it seems the FBI will not speak with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Kavanaugh’s first accuser, or dozens of others with potential information.


According to NBC’s sources, he FBI has not returned the calls or emails from Ford’s lawyers, Michael Bromwich and Debra Katz, nor is the FBI listing the 51-year-old research scientist as a potential witness. Ford’s lawyers are not happy with the FBI’s disinterest in their client, sending the agency a “strongly-worded letter” on Tuesday afternoon.


“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,” Bromwich and Katz jointly said together in their letter.

Nevertheless, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell intends to carry out the vote to approve Kavanaugh later this week.
