The FBI is seeking to schedule an interview as early as Friday night with one of two women who, after Christine Blasey Ford went public, came forward with accusations of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, reports The Los Angeles Times.
According to the LA Times:
The FBI moved immediately given the short time frame. By Friday night, agents had sought to schedule an interview with one of two other women who, after Blasey Ford went public, made accusations of their own about alleged assaults dating to Kavanaugh’s days in high school and at Yale University, according to two sources with knowledge of the investigation who asked to remain unidentified given the sensitivity of the matter.
FBI investigators contacted the attorneys for the woman and asked to interview her “as early as tonight,” according to one of the sources.
The accuser’s attorneys asked the FBI for a later time, but according to the LA Times, “the interview could occur this weekend, the sources said.”
