US Senators upset over FBI’s investigation of US Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh
US Senators on Wednesday wrote to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Chief Chris Wray requesting additional information on sexual misconduct allegations against the US supreme court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
According to the Democratic senators, the investigation agency failed to fully investigate the allegations against the Supreme Court Justice. The request was sent following a letter from the Bureau to Whitehouse.
“The admissions in your letter corroborate and explain numerous credible accounts by individuals and firms that they had contacted the FBI with information ‘highly relevant to . . . allegations’ of sexual misconduct by Justice Kavanaugh, only to be ignored.”
According to the letter sent to the White House by the agency, the FBI gathered over 4,500 tips in relation to the investigation. US Senators allege that the tips were gathered without any apparent further action by FBI investigators and that the tips were provided to the Trump White House Counsel’s office instead of the White House.
“If the FBI was not authorized to or did not follow up on any of the tips that it received from the tip line, it is difficult to understand the point of having a tip line at all.” The Senators added in their letter.
