CLEVELAND, OH – U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) released the following statement after the Senate delayed a vote on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court and the White House ordered a supplemental FBI investigation into allegations that Kavanaugh committed sexual assault. Brown previously announced his opposition to Judge Kavanaugh in August.
“While I’ve already announced my opposition to Kavanaugh because he has sided with corporations over workers and Wall Street over consumers, I strongly support a thorough investigation by the FBI,” Brown said. “Dr. Ford’s testimony was a powerful moment for our country, and I am grateful to her and all the brave women who were inspired by her to speak out and share their own stories. It’s because of their courage that the FBI investigation is going forward.”
