The FBI reportedly has no intention of interviewing Christine Blasey Ford regarding her sexual assault allegation.

FBI officials will not speak with Christine Blasey Ford as they investigate her sexual assault allegations, along with others, against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, according to sources who spoke with NBC News.

> The White House believes Ford's public testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee was sufficient and the FBI would be wasting its time speaking to her again about allegations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, said a source familiar with the Trump administration's thinking.

Ford’s attorneys sent a letter to the FBI Tuesday, indicating their dismay with reports that Ford will not be interviewed, NBC News said.

> The lawyers, Michael Bromwich and Debra Katz, wrote that they've heard nothing from the FBI after sending a "series of emails and letters in which we identified witnesses and evidence that would likely assist" the investigation.

>

> "It is inconceivable that the FBI could conduct a thorough investigation of Dr. Ford’s allegations without interviewing her, Judge Kavanaugh, or the witnesses we have identified in our letters to you," the lawyers added in the letter.

>

> Legal and law enforcement experts say there is much to be learned from interviewing a witness in a private setting by professional investigators who have had the opportunity to ask other witnesses about the allegations.
