“I’m a big fan of the FBI, John, but they don’t investigate sex assault cases, there are very, very few federal sex assault cases,” Gowdy said. “So, my first question would be, the FBI to investigate what? There’s no crime scene to process, there’s no forensics to evaluate.”

“What the FBI could do is go interview Dr. Ford, and interview Judge Kavanaugh,” he continued. “But they’ve already interviewed Judge Kavanaugh and even if they did interview Dr. Ford, she still has to testify. So the only role I can see the bureau playing is identifying other witnesses that may have knowledge– some of that’s already been done by Dr. Ford. Judge Kavanaugh’s defense is that he wasn’t there so you wouldn’t expect him to produce witnesses.”
