Sen. Hatch Sends Letter To FBI About ‘Deeply Troubling’ Behavior From Ford’s Lawyers

Orrin Hatch, a Republican Senator for Utah, was one of the people who indicated that Democrats will do everything in their power to postpone Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote to the Supreme Court and that they are using Ford’s allegations to do so. Now, he is demanding to be notified if the bureau encounters any stall tactics while the FBI is investigating into the allegations against Kavanaugh.

Hatch also spoke of the “deeply troubling” behavior of one of Ford’s lawyers, Debra Katz.

On Fridays, the Senate Judiciary Committee made a decision, which President Trump backed up, regarding Kavanaugh’s case to allow the FBI to conduct an investigation and look into Ford’s claims, who indicated that Kavanaugh attempted to rape her when they were both in high school. However, the panel also agreed that the investigation is to last only for a week.

Hatch then, sent a letter to the FBI Director Christopher Wray and released a copy of it on his website.

“The President noted that this request should be limited in scope and completed in one week from yesterday,” Hatch wrote.

Hatch also noted that the alleged witnesses and Ford have agreed to cooperate and yet he expressed his concern of possible impedance of the investigation.

“I am writing to request, however, that you notify the White House Counsel’s Office immediately if any witness(es) or their representatives seek to delay or are uncooperative in this process,” he said.

Then, he revealed that the reason behind his concerns is Katz’s apparent conduct.

“One key reason for my concern regarding possible delay comes from testimony during the hearing this past Thursday. According to Dr. Ford, she would have preferred to have been interviewed in California, away from the spectacle of a public hearing. But her lawyers apparently refused to convey to their client numerous offers by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley to conduct a public or private interview in a location of her choosing,” wrote Hatch.

“The lawyers’ refusal led directly to a public hearing, against Dr. Ford’s express wishes. This is deeply troubling,” he continued.

With regard to the investigation, President Trump tweeted on Saturday that even though he limited the length of the investigation to a week, the FBI is allowed to take the investigation wherever it leads them. The initial reports indicated that the FBI are confined to Ford’s claims only.

“NBC News incorrectly reported (as usual) that I was limiting the FBI investigation of Judge Kavanaugh, and witnesses, only to certain people. Actually, I want them to interview whoever they deem appropriate, at their discretion. Please correct your reporting!” Trump tweeted.

Raj Shah, the White House spokesman, confirmed what Trump said in his tweet.

“The scope and duration has been set by the Senate,” Shah said, according to Fox News. “The White House is letting the FBI agents do what they are trained to do.”

On Friday, Hatch said that he doesn’t see a reason for an investigation to be conducted but despite that, he supports the decision as it would make other senators more assured to vote for Kavanaugh after.

“While I personally believe it is appropriate to proceed with Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation at this time, I recognize that some members feel that additional investigation could be useful. I support the decision for an investigation limited in length and scope as described today. This will address the concerns raised by Senator Flake and others while also being fair to the Kavanaugh family,” said Hatch in a statement on Friday.

      Wray is as “dirty” as comey was. He refused to fire Strzok and someone with more integrity took care of something that was Wray’s job to do. DO NOT TRUST DIR. WRAY

    Christine Fords nickname in high school was Ms. “Easy”
    She admitted that by freshman year in college she had done over 60 men
    does not sound like a woman who when no clothes were removed was afraid of rape
    sounds like a predatory strumpet.

    FBI please find out what was in the envelope the lady from the House of Rep slipped to Ford’s Attorney and he then placed it into the inside pocket of his coat at his chest . It was intended to be sneaky but was videoed by someone This occurred after the Hearing had ended and both Mrs. Ford and the male Attorney were standing near their chairs. Please find out if Mrs. Feinstein’s husband had anything to do with choosing Mrs. Ford for this Intentional Delay since they both have ties to Palo Alto. Thanks

    The difference between an FBI investigation in the criminal justice system and the Senate confirmation of a Supreme Court nominee is that with the latter, the FBI gathers information and that’s all. They then present it to the Senate who does the rest. The background check is done by the FBI and reported to the White House and the Senate Committee. The purpose is to see if the nominee poses a national security risk. They do not offer conclusions or recommendations. The Constitution gives the Senate the sole responsibility to evaluate the nominee. The FBI does not do this. On Sep 17 the Republican members of the committee began talking with Judge Kavanaugh as required, but the Democrats refused to participate. A delay tactic.

    In the criminal justice system the FBI gathers information, evaluates it, makes judgments of reliability of witnesses, follows leads, and offers conclusions and/or recommendations.

    If the FBI does an honest job, the lefties may not like the results if they point out the shenanigans of the attorneys and congress critters.

      They still will not vote for him if God came down and said he was telling the truth. These Rats are as sick as they come. If this were their son, husband, brother they would be suing the accuser if it ever got that far and had her whole drinking , sex life, who she went to pre school with under scrutiny.

      Got nothing to do with anything but the hate the left has incited towards Donald Trump. They all have been left to rape, molest women and had a fund to shut them up, 3 of them are noted factually as women abusers and one a sexual pedophile, a communist and a Islamic American hater. but that is all covered up and they go and do these things to good people.

      The Democrats are the cancer on our government have been when they hid behind their white hoods, and now doing it right in our faces. But Trump is going to get their asses.. and they know it. In a few weeks its all going to come to a head.. and the MSN will have a lot of pink slips handed out.. as no one is ever going to believe what they say again. Trump is their worst nightmare.. and the things they have said are sick but he still keeps going.. he knows the end is near for them

    You always have to look at the root of a situation to discover the real issue. Secondly you need to follow the money. The demonicrats are showing clear indications that they are afraid of Mr. Kavanaugh and we already know they’re afraid of President Trump just by the actions they have demonstrated to this point. I truly believe that after Judge Kavanaugh is seated on the Court we are going to see things that will shake this nation to the core. I believe we are going to see mass arrest of people who have indulged in criminal behavior throughout the government. I believe that at some point President Trump will have to implement martial law on a temporary basis. Gitmo is about to become a full facility as well as some prisons here in America. Mr. Trump has said time and again that he intended to “drain the swamp.” I also believe that we are on the threshold of that very action. It’s going to be at the very least an interesting event to watch and be a part of ! And I truly believe that members of BOTH parties are guilty and that they should ALL be treated legally the same way !!!

    There should have been a time limit placed on anything Mueller does as well.

    Mrs. Ford needs to be investigated too. How could she claim this happened and scared and traumatized her and in her yearbook she says she slept with 52 men?????

    @ KF
    There has been talk of Mrs Ford being treated by a hypnotherapist. Questions : If so what has she remembered after her sessions? Where are the session tapes? (will not b revealed under Doc. PAT confideciality) What r the doctors political leanings? who paid 4 the doctor?
    Do u think these questions might affect her memory?

    Anyone would have to be a complete idiot to think all this is anything other than a political hit by the Democrats.

    I don’t trust the democrats as far as I could throw them. They are nothing but EVIL! There isn’t anything they wouldn’t do to get what they want no matter how corrupt or amoral it is.
