According to a new report, the FBI has not been given the authority to question Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh or Christine Blasey Ford, who accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault.
According to two sources who spoke with Bloomberg, Donald Trump and his administration believe that the hearings of Kavanaugh and Ford in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee last week was enough.
“We’re going to allow the Senate to make the determination of the scope,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters Wednesday about the limits set up for the FBI investigation.
Sanders said that Trump has “also asked that the Senate be the ones that determine the scope of what they need to make a decision on whether they vote Kavanaugh up or down.”
Initially, the FBI had been restricted on who they could question as part of the investigation. That was changed on Monday when the White House reportedly allowed the FBI to interview anyone deemed appropriate in its investigation.
Now, that doesn’t appear to be the truth as they have been restricted from interviewing the two people involved.
