The White House said it is “fully confident” the Senate will confirm Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh after the FBI completed its investigation following at least three sexual assault allegations against the judge.
The Judiciary Committee said it received the bureau’s report early Thursday, setting the stage for what could be a contentious day on Capitol Hill.
Senators are being given access to the report at a secure facility at the Capitol.
An official briefed on the FBI investigation told the New York Times that nine of the 10 people whom the FBI had contacted agreed to interviews. The identities of those people were not immediately clear.
Democrats said the FBI did not conduct a thorough investigation into three allegations that Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted women in high school and college.
