WASHINGTON - According to the GOP Senate Judiciary chair, there was 'No hint of misconduct' in confidential FBI report on the Brett Kavanaugh sexual misconduct claims.
Kavanaugh is up for a vacant Supreme Court seat.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has taken a key procedural step to begin voting on Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court.
The Republican leader filed a motion setting up a Friday vote on whether to limit debate on Kavanaugh and move forward.
A simple majority of 51 votes will be needed for Kavanaugh's nomination to advance. A final vote could come Saturday.
Senators delayed a vote on Kavanaugh so the FBI could conduct a background investigation into the allegations of sexual misconduct against him. Kavanaugh denies the allegations. The Senate Judiciary Committee expected to receive the report from the FBI Wednesday evening.
A handful of Republicans and Democrats have not decided whether to support Kavanaugh. Their votes will likely decide whether he is confirmed.
