One year after the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) and a group of senators are seeking updates from the Justice Department on the status of criminal referrals made by the committee in the course of and after the last year’s confirmation process.
Senators Tillis, Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Mike Lee (R-UT), Ted Cruz (R-TX), John Cornyn (R-TX), Mike Crapo (R-ID), John Kennedy (R-LA) and Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) wrote to Attorney General William Barr and FBI Director Christopher Wray requesting information on how many criminal investigations were opened and referred for prosecution as a result of the initial referrals from the Senate. 
“Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation process will unfortunately be remembered for the Democrats doing away with due process norms in order to smear and destroy a good man’s reputation,” said Senator Tillis. “It’s important we do not let these baseless allegations go without justice, and the American people deserve to know the action the DOJ took as a result.”
In the process of evaluating claims against the then-nominee, committee investigators collected 25 written statements and spoke with 45 individuals. Those investigations culminated in the nominee’s confirmation and the release of a 414-page committee report concluding that there was no credible evidence to support any of the allegations.
Last year, then-Chairman Grassley referred to the Department of Justice four individuals for investigation for potential criminal conduct including the submission of materially false statements to the committee, obstruction of Congress and conspiracy to submit false statements or obstruct Congress.
