The Senate is nearing decision on Kavanaugh

FBI has come out with new report on the accused High court candidate Brett Kavanaugh on Thursday. The members of the US senate are expected to read this report in a secured room in Congress which is mostly used for confidential matters.
It’s still unclear if the report will be made public.
The Senate Republican leader, Mitch McConnell, has announced a Friday vote on how to proceed with the case. The elected representatives must then decide whether their Kavanaugh debate should be limited.

This means that the final vote on the Supreme Court candidate may take place on Saturday, according to the AFP news agency.

Psychology professor Christine Blasey Ford, who, in a hearing in the Senate, told Kavanaugh to postpone her abuse at the age of 17, should not have been contacted by the FBI.

Instead, the investigators spoke to three other people who were present at the party where the assault allegedly took place, Washington Post writes .

– Not interested in the truth

The lawyers of the defender who accuse Kavanaugh of assault are also dissatisfied with the work of the FBI.

“Those who have laid the guidelines for the FBI’s investigation have not been interested in seeking the truth,” he said in a statement from Ford’s lawyer.

However, the White House determines the extent of the FBI’s background checks is not unusual. It is also not uncommon for the content of such reports to be disclosed to the public.

According to the newspaper Wall Street Journal, the White House has already read the testimonials in the report – without finding anything they believe supports the charges against Kavanaugh.

President Donald Trump has made it clear that he does not believe in the charges, and on Tuesday he drove Ford at a election campaign in Mississippi.

The Republicans who are uncertain whether they can vote for Kavanaugh have made it clear that they disregard Trump’s statements.
