(Reuters) - The White House has received the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s report on sexual misconduct allegations against U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and will send it to the Senate, a spokesman said early on Thursday.

The Senate was expected to receive the report early on Thursday, two sources familiar with the matter told Reuters. Senators were to be granted access to review it during the day before a procedural vote that was set up by U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
