WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican U.S. Senator Susan Collins said on Thursday she believed the FBI probe of sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was thorough.
“It appears to be a very thorough investigation,” Collins told reporters. Collins was one of the moderate Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee who pushed for a supplemental background check to investigate sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh.
