Congresswoman Cheri Bustos Statement on new allegations against Judge Kavanaugh

“There are now at least three credible accusations of sexual assault against Judge Kavanaugh and these women must be taken seriously. Before getting a promotion to a lifetime appointment on the highest court in the land, Washington Republicans must allow a complete and customary FBI background investigation into these new claims. Seating a Supreme Court Justice might be the greatest responsibility of the United States Senate, and Washington Republicans have an obligation to demonstrate their commitment to putting the pursuit of truth and accountability in government ahead of a partisan sprint to the finish line. These courageous women, who have put their lives on the line to tell their stories, deserve nothing less.”
