George Washington University Law School professor Jonathan Turley said an FBI investigation into Judge Brett Kavanaugh can help clear his name and remove the stain from his Supreme Court nomination, on “Fox & Friends” Monday.

Turley said an FBI report of the alleged events wouldn’t reach a full conclusion and is considered to be “largely descriptive.”

“The FBI produces these reports called 302s that detail what witnesses say to them,” Turley said. (RELATED: Brett Kavanaugh Turned The Tide Once He Decided To Hit Back Against Senate Democrats)

“They may also take some physical examination of houses suspected of being the one described by Dr. Ford. But it’s largely descriptive. It’s largely just sort of documenting the accounts and what is available for other people to reach conclusions.”


Turley claimed the FBI investigation will help remove doubts about Kavanaugh’s fitness to serve on the court and will help him repair his damaged reputation.

He also warned that if Kavanaugh doesn’t clear his name, he will forever be remembered as a parody similar to his “Saturday Night Live” feature.

“I think that this is much better for him to be confirmed after giving a little time for investigation to reduce that cloud. Otherwise, he’ll never regain any part of his reputation,” Turley concluded. “It’ll all be Matt Damon and not him.”
