U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., supported a procedural motion in the Senate today that set up a final vote on the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to be an associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. After the vote, Enzi released the following statement.
“I have read the FBI’s supplemental background investigation on Judge Kavanaugh. We’re prohibited from revealing specifics, but I found no new facts were revealed and no corroboration of the accusations were presented. Sexual assault allegations deserve to be taken seriously and career agents at the FBI compiled this background information independent of political considerations. Throughout this process I have believed that it is important to fairly examine the evidence presented without prejudice. I continue to believe Judge Kavanaugh is a well-qualified nominee.”
