FBI report on Kavanaugh is in

News

The FBI report looking into the allegations of sexual misconduct by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is in.  

The countdown is on to the potential vote on his nomination.

Senators have been making their way to a secure location to review the report, which dates back more than 30 years, with tensions following its release high on both sides. 

“We will not be hoodwinked by those who have tried hard to smear this good man and drag him through the mud,” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Diane Feinstein said, “The most notable part of this report is what’s not in it.”

Kavanaugh and his first accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, were not interviewed.

Some senators have complained about the backlog to review the report because there’s only one copy in the room.  

Iowa Senator and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley believe that enough time was spent on Kavanaugh’s nomination, and believes it’s time to move forward.

“This is the 87th day; That’s three weeks longer than the average of the last three or four nominees to the Supreme Court. So don’t tell me we haven’t spent enough time,” said Grassley.

Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote may happen this weekend.
