The FBI Must Investigate Kavanaugh

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford has publicly accused Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh of attempted rape, and has demanded that the FBI do a full investigation of this incident before hearings on his nomination proceed.

The stakes are high because the accused man has been nominated to the Supreme Court, but the request is a simple one: that a horrible crime be properly and fairly investigated, and that the nation not reward the perpetrator with one of its top jobs until they fully know what he's done.

Dr. Ford knows that coming forward may ruin her life, and she's doing it anyway, because her country needs to know the character the people sitting on its highest court. Please stand with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, and demand a full FBI investigation of Kavanaugh.

ACTION 1: Call our Senators

Senator Murray called for an FBI investigation on Twitter yesterday - let her know we appreciate it and we want to her to keep it up, and let Senator Cantwell know that we'd like to hear from her too.

Sen. Patty Murray--DC 202-224-2621; Seattle 206-553-5545

Sen. Maria Cantwell--DC 202-224-3441; Seattle 206-220-6400

Sample Script:

“Hello, I’m [name] from [city, zip]. I'm calling to ask the Senator to keep fighting the Kavanaugh nomination with everything she has.

[If Murray] I'd like to thank the Senator for calling for an investigation into Kavanaugh's sexual assault allegations. It is crucial that this high office not be awarded to a man who has himself gotten away with a horrible crime - please continue to do everything in your power to halt all proceedings until an investigation is completed."

[If Cantwell] In particular, in light of the sexual assault allegations against the nominee, I want the Senator to insist that there is a full FBI investigation of the allegations, as was requested by Dr. Ford. No hearing should be scheduled until the investigation is complete. Please thank the Senator for everything she's done so far, and ask her to keep fighting for us."
