Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) is releasing a summary report on the committee majority’s investigation of misconduct allegations presented during the confirmation process of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
“The revelation of last minute allegations tested the committee in many ways. But these investigative efforts rose to the occasion and were critical to helping us obtain the truth. This was a serious and thorough investigation that left no stone unturned in our pursuit of the facts,” Grassley said. “In the end, there was no credible evidence to support the allegations against the nominee.”
The summary report and its exhibits amount to 414 pages. Committee investigators spoke with 45 individuals and took 25 written statements relating to the various allegations made in the course of the Supreme Court confirmation process. In neither the committee’s investigation nor in the supplemental background investigation conducted by the FBI was there any evidence to substantiate or corroborate any of the allegations.
In a letter to Senator Feinsteindated July 30, 2018, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford alleged that Justice Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in the early 1980s, while they were both high-school students, at a gathering in a home near the Columbia Country Club in Maryland. However, Senator Feinstein kept the Committee in the dark about the letter until September 12, 2018, when she briefed Committee Democrats, but not Republicans, on the contents of the letter.
