Judiciary Committee Releases Transcripts of Kavanaugh Interviews
WASHINGTON – The Senate Judiciary Committee
today released the transcripts of two interviews committee investigators
conducted with Judge Brett Kavanaugh following allegations published in recent
news reports. The first interview was
conducted on Monday, September 17, 2018, one day after the Washington Post revealed Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s identity. Committee Democrats were invited but refused
to take part in the interview. The second interview was conducted Tuesday,
September 25, following allegations by Deborah Ramirez were published in the New Yorker. Committee Democrats were
reportedly investigating Ramirez’s claims, but did not share such information
with Committee Republicans. Committee
Democrats attended this interview but declined to participate. The Committee conducted a third interview on Wednesday, September 26, in which Judge Kavanaugh was questioned about allegations raised by Julie Swetnick.
Each interview was conducted under penalty of felony. In each interview, Judge
Kavanaugh denied the allegations against him. Judge Kavanaugh has agreed for
the transcripts to be released.
