The White House has found no corroboration of recent sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, according to a Wall Street Journal report late Wednesday night. It remains unclear whether or not the White House has finalized its review of the FBI’s interview reports, but nevertheless the Journal relates that officials expect to send the FBI report to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.
The news comes on the heels of a separate report that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has filed for cloture on Kavanaugh’s nomination, meaning that the final vote for Kavanaugh’s confirmation will take place on Saturday. Senate Democrats continue to insist on the recent uncorroborated, and in some cases flat-out refuted, allegations as a means to hold up the final vote, but McConnell appears confident that he has the votes to confirm the Kavanaugh to the Court.
