The 10 Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee are unanimous: allegations against Brett Kavanaugh must be investigated by the FBI, or his nomination to the Supreme Court should be withdrawn.

The serious and credible allegations of one woman should have been enough to require a complete investigation by the FBI. It should not have required multiple women with consistent accounts of serious sexual misconduct by Judge Kavanaugh to trigger a meaningful nonpartisan investigation.
