Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) wrote to the FBI last fall to alert them to the allegation against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh written about in the New York Times this weekend — but the agency never followed up with the Yale grad who witnessed the alleged incident.
According to a Washington Post report Monday, Coons wrote FBI Director Chris Wray on October 2, 2018, urging him to interview Max Stier, Kavanaugh’s classmate, who had an allegation against him.
At the time, the FBI was conducting a background check on Kavanaugh, days before his confirmation on October 6. Coons was trying to get the credible allegation into Wray’s hands as quickly as possible.
Stier said that he was at a party and saw Kavanaugh with his pants down as friends pushed his penis into a young woman’s hand. According to an excerpt from the book “The Education of Brett M. Kavanaugh” published in the Times, the woman involved does not recall the incident.
Stier was reportedly one of many Yale alumni who reached out to the FBI during Kavanaugh’s contentious confirmation process and was never interviewed.
