Schumer Statement On Testimony By Dr. Ford And Judge Kavanaugh

September 27, 2018

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer today released the following statement regarding Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh’s testimonies:

"Dr. Ford’s testimony was courageous, difficult to hear, and grounded in the facts. Judge Kavanaugh was angry, defiant, and partisan. While I strongly believe Dr. Ford, the way to clear this up would be to have the FBI reopen the investigation for several days, actually interview potential witnesses, and get to the truth before the Senate is required to vote on whether to elevate Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court for the remainder of his life.

“If our Republican colleagues are so certain of Judge Kavanaugh’s story, they should immediately demand that the White House order the FBI to reopen the background investigation, and hold off on a vote for several days so all the facts can come out.”
