US President Donald Trump has said that FBI can question anybody on Brett Kavanaugh and wants FBI to conduct a "very comprehensive investigation" into sexual assault allegations against his Supreme Court nominee, a BBC report said.
The FBI is expected to interview Judge Kavanaugh and some of the women who have accused him of sexual misconduct including Prof Ford, who testified last week to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Quoting an unnamed senior US official, NBC reported that the FBI's witness list does not include Julie Swetnick, the third accuser to come forward with a claim against Judge Kavanaugh.
US reports also say former classmates of the judge who have claimed he drank heavily in college are not on the witness list.Charles Ludington , a Professor at North Carolina State University, said he had seen Judge Kavanaugh slurring his words and staggering after excessive alcohol consumption.
He further added that "I never saw him passed out but I saw him quite drunk." The White House rebutted these claims with statements from two former Yale classmates of Judge Kavanaugh.
Chris Dudley and Dan Murphy said they had never seen Kavanaugh black out while drunk at Yale, or behave inappropriately with any women.
The senate vote on Kavanaugh is expected to come on Friday. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the upper chamber would vote this week on whether to confirm Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
