Assemblyman Jay Webber will wait until the FBI concludes its week-long investigation into sexual assault allegations against U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh before deciding whether the Senate should confirm the latter.
“Let’s see what the investigation brings back, and then the Senate will make its decision, but I think it’s prudent to spend a week, look at the allegations and dig into the facts,” Webber said. “Let’s see what comes back. It’s only a few days now.
Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused the judge of drunkenly pinning her down and groping her at a house party in the 1908s, testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.
Following that testimony, the White House authorized the bureau, at the behest of the committee, to reopen its background check on Kavanaugh to investigate the sexual assault allegations made against the judge by at least two women. A third has accused Kavanaugh of predatory behavior.
