Demand Justice Statement on New Revelations About Trump Administration’s Meddling in Probe About Brett Kavanaugh

WASHINGTON -

Following news that the F.B.I. has officially admitted it never conducted a serious investigation into allegations against Brett Kavanaugh and that all tips that emerged were simply referred to the Trump White House to handle as it saw fit, Demand Justice Executive Director Brian Fallon said:

“We have long felt Brett Kavanaugh’s elevation to the Supreme Court was illegitimate, and this new admission by the FBI confirms it.

“The public deserves to know the truth about the cover-up that took place in 2018 and what the Trump administration may have concealed. Unlike in the fall of 2018, Democrats now hold the gavels in both the Senate and House. With so much credible evidence that Kavanaugh committed perjury, the relevant committees should be mounting their own investigation by directly interviewing the witnesses the FBI never spoke to, collecting the tips the Trump White House tried to bury, and insisting on the records from the National Archives that were withheld in 2018.”
