Attorneys for Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her during their high school years in the 1980s, wants “a full investigation by law enforcement officials” of the alleged incident.
Ford’s attorneys said in a letter that a federal investigation must be conducted, prior to any hearings, in order “ensure that the crucial facts and witnesses in this matter are assessed.”
Prior to the letter, lawmakers were awaiting Ford’s response to their request for a public hearing set for Monday.
The letter also confirmed earlier reports that Ford, a mother of two teenagers, was targeted with death threats after she came forward with her allegations against Kavanaugh.
The Justice Department previously said that the allegation “does not involve any potential federal crime” to warrant an FBI investigation.
