The FBI revealed that it had received 4,500 tips and had provided “all relevant” ones to the White House counsel’s office.
after the FBI revealed that it had received thousands of tips and had provided “all relevant” ones to the White House counsel’s office.FBI Director Christopher Wray, responding to longstanding questions from Democrats, disclosed in a letter late last month that it had received more than 4,500 tips as it investigated the nominee’s past following his 2018 nomination by President
Donald Trump. The process was the first time that the FBI had set up a tip line for a nominee undergoing Senate confirmation, Wray said.A group of Democratic senators said in a letter to Wray dated Wednesday that his response “raises significant additional questions.” They called on him to explain, among other things, how many tips the FBI decided were relevant and what criteria agents used to make that determination and what policies and procedures were used to vet the tips. The senators also asked for more information about the tip line, including how it was staffed and how the tips were recorded or preserved.
“Your letter confirms that the FBI’s tip line was a departure from past practice and that the FBI was politically constrained by the Trump White House,” the senators wrote.Kavanaughwas confirmed to the Supreme Court in October 2018after a rancorous process in which claims emerged that he had sexually assaulted women three decades ago.

As part of that process, Wray said, the FBI interviewed 10 people over six days.

“Instead, it handed the information over to the White House, allowing those who supported Kavanaugh to falsely claim that the FBI found no wrongdoing,” said the lawyers, Debra Katz and Lisa Banks. Read more: HuffPost »
