Top Democrats are asking President Donald Trump again to direct the FBI to investigate Christine Blasey Ford's claim that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when both were teenagers.
Trump and Senate Republicans have repeatedly said an investigation is not necessary. Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer and the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, sent a letter to Trump on Sunday saying the FBI has more than enough time before Ford and Kavanaugh testify on Thursday.
Schumer and Feinstein write that Trump's comments this past week about getting to the bottom of the charges is "is merely lip service unless you are willing to direct the FBI to investigate."
