FBI confidential Kavanaugh report handed to White House, Senate

The FBI background report investigation on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was handed to the White House and passed on to the Senate overnight, while Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., arranged a key vote on the process for Friday.

If Friday's vote passes, there will be up to 30 hours of debate followed by a final confirmation vote on Kavanaugh, perhaps as early as Saturday.

A source briefed on the FBI’s completed background investigation told NBC News that the FBI contacted 10 people and interviewed nine of them. It was not immediately clear why the 10th was not interviewed. The source said the White House concluded the interviews do not corroborate sexual misconduct allegations against Brett Kavanaugh.

Deputy White House Press Secretary Raj Shah told reporters Thursday morning that Trump had been briefed on the report and that "the White House has been in very close contact with senators who have been on the fence and their offices."

Following the conclusion of the FBI probe, President Donald Trump on Thursday morning tweeted that Kavanaugh was the recipient of "harsh and unfair treatment" and "uncorroborated allegations."
