(FOX NEWS) – President Trump on Friday ordered the FBI to conduct a “supplemental” investigation into the allegations of sexual assault against Brett Kavanaugh before a final floor vote is held in the Senate on his Supreme Court nomination.
“I’ve ordered the FBI to conduct a supplemental investigation to update Judge Kavanaugh’s file,” Trump said in a statement. “As the Senate has requested, this update must be limited in scope and completed in less than one week.”
Earlier, the Senate Judiciary Committee said it is requesting that Trump “instruct the FBI” to conduct the investigation, which would be “limited to current credible allegations against the nominee and must be completed no later than one week from today.”
In recent days, Republicans have resisted calls from Democrats for the FBI to investigate the claims of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh dating back to high school and college. Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.
