Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano on Thursday said that he thought the FBI made a big mistake when it didn’t bother interviewing either Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh or accuser Christine Blasey Ford as part of its background investigation.
Speaking with “Fox & Friends,” Napolitano said he was “disappointed” that the FBI didn’t talk with either of the two people who are the central figures in their investigation, and he said it would leave many people with doubts about the thoroughness of the probe.
“People that don’t want Judge Kavanaugh confirmed — whether they don’t want him confirmed because of the perception that he’s ideologically against them or because they really believe the allegations against him — now have more ammunition and more doubt to say, ‘Why was the FBI held back? Was the FBI used as a political instrument yet again?'”
Napolitano went on to say that some of the restrictions placed on the scope of the investigation by the White House would only fuel suspicion that the entire process has been a sham.
“Why weren’t they just allowed to interview whoever they wanted, including the two principles, Judge Kavanaugh and Dr. Ford?” he asked. “Those allegations are going to stick.”

‘Gaslighting on a massive scale’: Doctor warns Trump is lying us into a COVID disaster
On CNN Friday, Dr. Celine Grounder tore into President Donald Trump's ongoing falsehoods about the coronavirus pandemic.
"No matter how many times public health officials, especially like Anthony Fauci, speak the truth, what does it do, Doctor, when the president continues to lie to the public in face of a public health crisis?" asked anchor Kate Bolduan.
"This is gaslighting on an enormous scale, and means until people eventually get sick or their family members get sick, the communities hit hard, they won't believe it, and then it will be too late," said Grounder. "The problem is there's a lag period from the time that somebody's infected and starts to develop symptoms a couple days later. We don't see people get severely sick and need to be hospitalized and in ICUs until a week into disease, and talking about probably one to two weeks of lag time from the time somebody's exposed at least before you start to see hospitalizations and then another couple weeks before you start to see deaths."
Katie Porter demands resignation of Trump small business chief for enabling ‘abuse’ of Covid-19 relief funds
California Congresswoman Katie Porter is demanding the resignation of the Trump administration's small business chief for enabling "abuse" and "waste" of coronavirus relief funds and refusing to comply with basic government oversight efforts.
Porter's call came after the Government Accountability Office (GAO) said in a report last week that it "encountered the most difficulty trying to obtain information from the Small Business Administration (SBA)" during the process of examining the Trump administration's handling of the $650 billion Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).
‘We’ve got to get a new guy’: Florida Trump voters lash out at the president as they flee the GOP
In interviews with CNN's Jeff Zeleny, longtime Florida Republicans who voted for Donald Trump in 2016 admitted they have no intention of helping him stay in office when they vote in November.
With polls showing the president trailing in the all-important Sunshine State, where seniors preferred Trump over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by 21 points last election, the president now finds himself bleeding support from a demographic he desperately needs if he wants to stay in the Oval Office after the first of the year.
According to retired banker John Dudley, 77, he voted for Trump last election and the president promptly "blew it."
