The White House's decision to limit the scope of the FBI's investigation is drawing increased outrage.

Individuals with information relevant to the FBI’s probe of sexual misconduct allegations against Brett Kavanaugh reportedly are being ignored by federal investigators.

According to TPM, the White House’s decision to limit the FBI investigation is drawing increased outrage.

> According to a Sunday New Yorker article, multiple people have tried to go to the FBI with pertinent information about Kavanaugh, only to be stymied by seemingly unorganized and uninterested agents.

>

> One of these potential witnesses is Elizabeth Rasor, an ex-girlfriend of Mark Judge. Rasor says that Judge told her about an episode where he and his friends “took turns” having sex with a drunk woman, an act that seems to mirror Kavanaugh’s third accuser, Julie Swetnick’s, allegation. Judge has also been accused by professor Christine Blasey Ford of being an accomplice to Kavanaugh during a separate alleged sexual assault.

> Another is an unnamed Yale classmate who wanted to corroborate Deborah Ramirez’s accusation that Kavanaugh had exposed himself to her at a college party. “I thought it was going to be an investigation, but instead it seems it’s just an alibi for Republicans to vote for Kavanaugh,” the unnamed Yale classmate told the New Yorker.

Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) reportedly sent a letter to White House counsel Don McGahn and FBI Director Christopher Wray requesting a copy of the directives initially given to the FBI by the White House, as well as any subsequent changes.

> Some Georgetown Prep alumni are also taking their demands public, per the Washington Post, calling upon high school classmates of Kavanaugh’s to come forward with any information about the alleged sexual assaults or pertinent “background” information, no matter the “personal cost.”

CNN reported Monday that Senator Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who insisted the FBI look into the allegations after Christine Blasey Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week, said he wants the FBI to conduct a "real investigation" and not one that "just gives us more cover."
