The Senate Judiciary Committee announced Friday that it will ask the Federal Bureau of Investigation to probe the sexual-assault allegations leveled against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. “The Senate Judiciary Committee will request that the administration instruct the FBI to conduct a supplemental FBI background investigation with respect to the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to be an Associate Justice on the Supreme Court,” the committee said in a statement. “The supplemental FBI background investigation would be limited to current credible allegations against the nominee and must be completed no later than one week from today.” Earlier in the day, Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) called for an FBI investigation before the vote on Kavanaugh’s confirmation. Kavanaugh pal Mark Judge, who has been accused of witnessing Christine Blasey Ford’s alleged sexual assault, said he would cooperate with any law-enforcement agency that will “confidentially investigate” the claims, the Associated Press reported. Judge has denied the allegations.
