The American Bar Association published a letter urging the Senate Judiciary Committee to delay its vote on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court until the FBI conducts an investigation into the numerous sexual misconduct allegations against him, according to a CNN report published Thursday.

“The basic principles that underscore the Senate’s constitutional duty of advice and consent on federal judicial nominees require nothing less than a careful examination of the accusations and facts by the FBI,” ABA president Robert Carlson said in a letter, CNN reported.
