Blumenthal Accuses Trump of Kavanaugh Coverup

Democrat Sen. Richard Blumenthal lambasted President Trump for not calling for an investigation into the sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and accused the president of participating in a “coverup.”

During her questioning before the Judiciary Committee, Christine Blasey Ford said she was assaulted by Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge during a house party in the 1980s. When Blumenthal asked if she would like the committee to question Judge too, Ford said it would be her “preference.”

“Well, it’s not up to you. It’s up to the president of the United States, and his failure to ask for an FBI investigation, in my view, is tantamount to a coverup,” Blumenthal charged.
