In a tense exchange, Judge Brett Kavanaugh interrupted Democratic California Sen. Dianne Feinstein as she lamented the inability of the FBI to interview witnesses and give Senate investigators “any facts.”
“You’re interviewing me. You’re interviewing. You’re doing it, Senator. I’m sorry to interrupt, but you’re doing it. There are no conclusions reached,” Kavanaugh said.
Kavanaugh had said in his opening statement that he would welcome “any kind of investigation: Senate, FBI or otherwise.”
“I wanted a hearing the next day. My family’s been destroyed by this Senator, destroyed. And whatever the committee decides. I’m all in immediately,” he told Feinstein.
Feinstein called it “terrible and hard” that the Senate is not “in a position to prove it or disprove” allegations like this, and needed to rely an “some outside authority.”
