The FBI is expected to complete its investigat­ion into allegation­s of sexual assault against Judge Brett Kavanaugh and deliver the results to the Senate as early as Wednesday, The New York Times reported. “We’ll have an FBI report this week, and we’ll have a vote this week,” Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, told reporters Tuesday. But he would not say whether that would be a final vote, or a procedural vote allowing the Senate to begin debate. The FBI will send its report to the Senate; several Republican­s said Tuesday that they would like to see the findings made public in some form. The FBI has interviewe­d Mark Judge, the friend of Kavanaugh whom Christine Blasey Ford said was in the room as she was assaulted, his lawyer said. Judge in the past said he had no recollecti­on of a rape attempt by Kavanaugh.
