President Trump ordered the FBI to begin an investigation into sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh.


FBI to Investigate Allegations Against Brett Kavanaugh

The day after Christine Blasey Ford  gave an emotional testimony , Republican Sen.

Jeff Flake voted to advance Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination.

It came with a stipulation: that a full vote in the Senate be delayed until the FBI can investigate the sexual assault allegations against him.

"I tried to yell for help.

When I did, Brett put his hand over my mouth to stop me from yelling," said Christine Blasey Ford in her testimony.

Since then, President Donald Trump has ordered the FBI to conduct a supplemental investigation to "update Judge Kavanaugh's file." A statement from the White House says, "As the Senate has requested, this update must be limited in scope and completed in less than one week." Kavanaugh's childhood friend Mark Judge, who Ford says was in the room at the time of the incident,  has agreed to cooperate  with investigators.

In a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, Judge responded to additional claims from  Julie Swetnick .

She's accused Kavanaugh and Judge of "abusive" behavior toward women and of being present at a party where she was raped.

Judge said in the letter he doesn't know Swetnick and denied her allegations.

The FBI is also looking into accusations  made by at least one other woman  — Deborah Ramirez,  who says Kavanaugh  exposed himself to her while drinking their freshman year of college.

As far as Kavanaugh's role in the investigation, he says he "will continue to cooperate." Additional reporting from  Newsy affiliate CNN .
