The White House issued a statement this morning saying they feel confident that Judge Kavanaugh will be confirmed to the Supreme Court.

 

Good morning,

 

Passing along this statement from White House Spokesman Raj Shah on the FBI’s supplemental background investigation into Judge Brett Kavanaugh:

“The White House has received the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s supplemental background investigation into Judge Kavanaugh, and it is being transmitted to the Senate. With Leader McConnell’s cloture filing, Senators have been given ample time to review this seventh background investigation. This is the last addition to the most comprehensive review of a Supreme Court nominee in history, which includes extensive hearings, multiple committee interviews, over 1,200 questions for the record and over a half million pages of documents. With this additional information, the White House is fully confident the Senate will vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.”
