Trump Dismisses Sexual Assault Claims Against Kavanaugh And Doesn’t Want The FBI Involved: Report
During a White House event with Polish President Andrzej Duda, Donald Trump claimed that he had not yet spoken to his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh since he was accused of sexually assaulting a young girl during his high school years.
Instead of trying to get to the bottom of things, Trump expressed his eagerness to get Kavanaugh approved as soon as possible.
“We’re looking to get this done as soon as possible,” Trump said of Kavanaugh’s nomination, according to a pool report. “It’s a process, speaking for all of the Republicans, we want to give everybody a chance to say what they want to say.”
“I haven’t wanted to speak to Judge Kavanaugh… specifically because I thought it was not a good idea not too,” Trump added. “I’m totally supportive, I’m very supportive.”
But Trump also went on to express his disbelief in the victim’s accusations that Kavanaugh had sexually abused her in high school.
The U.S. president then said that the FBI should not get involved over the accusations.
“I don’t think the FBI should be involved because they don’t want to be involved,” he insisted.
The FBI won’t be able to look into the accusations against Kavanaugh until the White House orders the agency to do so. That has yet to happen.
