GOP asks White House to order FBI investigation of Kavanaugh

Senate Republicans announced Friday that they will ask the White House to order the FBI to investigate allegations made against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh prior to a full confirmation vote.

“There’s going to be a supplemental FBI background investigation,” lasting no longer than a week, Majority Whip Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, said. Cornyn spoke after he and several other key Senate Republicans met with Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.

Word of the potential new FBI involvement came hours after Kavanaugh was approved Friday by the Senate Judiciary Committee on an 11-10 party-line vote. Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., voted yes, but called for the full Senate vote to be delayed for one week to allow time for the FBI to reopen its background investigation into Kavanaugh amid multiple allegations of sexual misconduct.
