Failure to interview witnesses a ‘stain’ on American ideal of justice, Ford’s lawyers write to FBI Director Chris Wray

WASHINGTON — Lawyers for Christine Blasey Ford have given FBI Director Chris Wray the names of people they say the FBI should contact to corroborate her account of having been sexually assaulted as a teenager by Brett Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh denies the claim and is awaiting a Senate vote on his nomination to the Supreme Court.

Ford wasn’t interviewed by the FBI as part of its supplemental background investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct dating to Kavanaugh’s high school and college years. That report has been turned over to the Senate.

Lawyers for the California college professor say in their letter to Wray that the FBI hasn’t interviewed any of the people whose names they’ve provided. That includes Ford’s husband and others who, the lawyers say, Ford told about the alleged assault.
