Whitehouse Calls for Halt to Kavanaugh Confirmation Process Following Sexual Assault Allegations

Washington, DC – Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, released the following statement regarding allegations of sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh:

“I admire the courage Ms. Ford has shown in coming forward with her story.  This requires a pause, at a minimum, in the unseemly, special-interest-funded rush to put Brett Kavanaugh on the Court.  Kavanaugh’s blanket denial cannot be reconciled with her specific recollections, and the FBI needs time to take proper witness statements.  Lying to an FBI agent in a formal interview is a crime, and an impeachable offense.”
