U.S. Senate to Begin Debate on Confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh

The U.S. Senate will start debating Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday in Washington.

Lawmakers say they’re not waiting on a report from the FBI.

On Friday, Senate Republicans asked the FBI to look into accusations by Christine Ford and Deborah Ramirez after both Ford and Kavanaugh gave emotional testimony in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

So far, a total of four women have accused the judge of inappropriate behavior.

Kavanaugh denies all of the allegations.

President Trump has given the FBI one week to complete a new background check on Kavanaugh.

The agency is only looking into the first two assault allegations.

The FBI interviewed Ramirez Sunday but has yet to interview Ford.

The debate is scheduled for Monday afternoon.
