WASHINGTON — The American Bar Association (ABA) has urged the Senate Judiciary Committee and the full Senate to slow down on the vote on Brett Kavanaugh for a position on the Supreme Court until the FBI has time to do a full background check on claims of sexual assault against him.

Christine Blasey (blah-zee) Ford and other women have emerged and accused Kavanaugh of sexually attacking them.

“We make this request because of the ABA’s respect for the rule of law and due process under law,” the ABA letter to committee leadership said. “Each appointment to our nation’s highest court (as with all others) is simply too important to rush to a vote.”

The Judiciary committee plans a vote on Kavanaugh on Friday. /kga
