FLASHBACK: Democrats Say if Kavanaugh Were Innocent, He Would Demand FBI Investigation

Top Democrats insisted in 2018 that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh would want an FBI investigation of the sexual assault claim against him if he were innocent.

It is unclear, however, whether the same Democrats will demand that Joe Biden call for a probe of Tara Reade's allegation that the presumptive presidential nominee assaulted her in 1993.

Many Democrats supporting Biden also previously said women did not make up sexual assault claims and should automatically be believed. They have amended those comments in 2020.
