If Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault when they were both teenagers, does not speak with committee members next Monday, the vote to send his nomination to the Senate should go on, Sen. David Perdue said Thursday.
“Chairman (Chuck) Grassley has done a great job in this process,” the Georgia Republican told Fox News’ “Fox and Friends.” “We have allowed, provided, over 500,000 pages of discovery. There have been six FBI investigations of this man, and it's time.”
If there is information about Ford’s allegations, Perdue added, “we want that information before the committee and before the Senate. If the information is not provided, after the time we have spent on this, it's time to move forward and get the votes in next week.”
He also pointed out, when asked if he thinks it would be advantageous to Kavanaugh if the FBI had a few more days to look at the background, as the agency has already examined the judge.
"What we want and I think Judge Kavanaugh would want this, too, is a clean airing of this new information," said Perdue. “He says he is innocent, and we have to get this information out. If the person who has this information doesn't provide it, then I think it's time we face the reality that we need to move on. We have already spent 50% more time confirming judge Kavanaugh than the last six judges. It's time to get this to a decision.”
