U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) sent a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) calling for the FBI to investigate not only the allegations made against Judge Brett Kavanaugh but also his testimony about his high school and college drinking habits.

Grassley’s response was spectacular. 

Sanders tweeted his letter on Saturday

Grassley responded the same day. Here’s an excerpt:

Your public statements clearly reveal how unimportant it is to you to review any facts related to this nomination. So you can imagine my surprise at receiving your letter regarding the supplemental FBI background investigation. This supplemental FBI background investigation was requested by undecided members of both parties. Am I to take from your letter that you are now undecided and willing to seriously engage with the Senate’s advice-and-consent constitutional duties related to the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh to serve as an Associate Justice on the Supreme Court of the United States? If so, we should have a conversation about what information you need to assist you in making a decision, and I look forward to that conversation.
