Virginia’s Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax calls on the FBI to open a probe into the sexual assault allegations against him.

In a statement on Saturday, Fairfax said his encounters with two women who have accused him of sexual assault were consensual.

He has denied both allegations and dismissed multiple calls to resign.

Fairfax was previously considered as a top replacement for Governor Ralph Northam when past racist photos in his medical school yearbook came to light earlier this month.
