House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has filed a Freedom of Information Act request for all documents related to the FBI’s investigation of assault allegations against Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh.

In a Sunday press release, she said that she has requested the release of the full report, interview transcripts and communication between the White House, Senate Republicans and the FBI.

The report has only been read by senators and some of their staffers so far.

Public release of the report and its background materials could fan the flames of controversy surrounding it, as many — including some of Kavanaugh’s accusers and old classmates — claim that they were ignored or stonewalled by the FBI when they tried to come forward with their recollections. The FBI also omitted Kavanaugh himself from the interview list.

Kavanaugh was confirmed to the bench on Saturday under a pall of protest and by a nearly party-line vote.
