The leaders of the majority and minority in the US Senate commented on the release of the FBI background investigation into alleged sexual misconduct by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, in Washington D.C. on Thursday.

Senators reviewed the new FBI report into Kavanaugh’s background. His nomination is under threat after he was accused of sexual assault by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford at a high school party in the 1980s. He strongly denies the allegations.
