To the Editor:

If Judge Kavanaugh is an honorable person as many of his Republican supporters claim and he is not lying about the incident disclosed by Dr. Ford recently, he should tell Senator Grsssley to quit pushing the confirmation hearings to a rapid conclusion and tell Grassley to have a full FBI investigation of Dr. Ford's allegations and a full and open hearing with all relevant witnesses testifying.

Anything less would besmirch Kavanaugh's promoted character as a fair and honorable person and judge. Otherwise, Kavanaugh would appear to be intentionally avoiding an important step in his confirmation process and leaving many in the American public wondering what the truth really is. Lady Justice deserves better than what the GOP is trying to get away with.
