US President Orders FBI Probe on his Supreme Court Pick, Continues Defending Judge Kavanaugh

  • The US President Donald Trump, on Friday, ordered an FBI probe into the sexual misconduct allegations against his nominee for the US Supreme Court Brett Kavanaugh. Reports say President Trump was under tremendous pressure from the Republican moderates and a Republican member backed Kavanaugh’s nomination to the top US court only if a FBI inquiry occurs. Kavanaugh’s ascension to the top court through a full Senate vote is delayed for up to a week. At least 3 women have accused Brett Kavanaugh about his sexual misconduct against them. However, he denied all the allegations and went on to accuse Democrats of politicizing the process. After ordering the FBI probe against his Supreme Court pick, the US President continued defending Judge Kavanaugh.
