A new documentary about Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s alleged sexual assault has premiered at Sundance Film Festival, prompting calls for the FBI to reopen its investigation into the matter.
The documentary, titled ‘Justice’, was secretly made by director Doug Liman and is based on the FBI’s investigation into the accusations against Kavanaugh. It includes interviews with witnesses and victims of the alleged assault, as well as analysis from legal experts.
According to The Daily Beast, the documentary reveals new damning allegations against Kavanaugh, including claims that he was present at multiple parties where women were sexually assaulted. The Washington Post reports that the documentary also highlights the shortcomings of the FBI’s investigation, which was widely criticized for its lack of thoroughness.
IndieWire’s review of the documentary states that it should be seen as a call to action, and that it should compel the FBI to reopen its investigation into Kavanaugh. The Hollywood Reporter also reported that the documentary’s premiere at Sundance was kept secret until the last minute, likely due to its controversial nature.
The allegations against Kavanaugh have been a subject of intense debate since his nomination to the Supreme Court in 2018. Jezebel’s coverage of the documentary’s premiere at Sundance has reignited the conversation surrounding the accusations, with many calling for the FBI to reopen its investigation.
It remains to be seen what the impact of the documentary will be, but it has certainly put the spotlight back on the allegations against Brett Kavanaugh.
