Young Statement on FBI’s Kavanaugh Investigation

WASHINGTON– U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.) today issued the following statement regarding the FBI supplemental background investigation into Judge Brett Kavanaugh: 

“FBI’s investigation turned up no corroborating evidence whatsoever. It’s time to vote.

“Just like the six previous FBI background investigations conducted during Judge Kavanaugh’s impeccable record of public service, this supplemental background investigation uncovered no evidence of misconduct. Collectively, the FBI has now interviewed more than 150 people as part of Judge Kavanaugh’s numerous background checks; he has undergone 36 hours of testimony before the committee; and more paperwork was released in the course of this review than the past four Supreme Court nominees combined. I have complete confidence in the integrity and thoroughness of the FBI’s investigation. It’s time for the Senate to confirm President Trump’s eminently qualified Supreme Court nominee.”
