Senate GOP Expects FBI Report By Wednesday Afternoon


Senate Republican leaders expect the FBI to provide its supplementary background report on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Wednesday and to hold a vote on the nominee Friday or Saturday.

Senate Republican Conference Chairman John Thune (S.D.) said after a GOP conference lunch meeting that senators are expected to get the report Wednesday afternoon, which would set up a key procedural vote on Kavanaugh for Friday or Saturday and a final confirmation vote 30 hours later.
