Murkowski Supports FBI Investigation before Vote on Supreme Court Nominee

Helps Secure Fair Process for Ford, Kavanaugh

Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) today made the following statement in support of delaying the final vote on Supreme Court Nominee, Brett Kavanaugh:

"After a full day of testimony, I continued to express concerns to my colleagues about how this process has been handled by both sides of the aisle. In order to fully and fairly complete our due diligence, allowing the FBI up to one week to supplement its background investigation is appropriate. It is important to have a fair process for the sake of both Judge Kavanaugh and Dr. Ford, as well as the integrity of both the judicial branch and the Senate confirmation process."
