The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee says the FBI interviewed 10 people while investigating sexual misconduct claims against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and found no corroboration of the allegations.

Sen. Chuck Grassley’s statement, issued around midnight, reiterated what he and other Republicans had said earlier in the day about the findings of the confidential report. But it provided the first official list of those interviewed by the FBI.

Democrats on the committee had objected to Grassley’s earlier statement that the investigation “found no hint of misconduct.” They said that based on their briefing and study of the document, “That is not true.”

The Senate is poised to take a crucial vote Friday on whether to advance Kavanaugh’s nomination. Three Republican senators and one Democrat remain undecided.
