President Donald Trump on Tuesday hinted that it would be “unacceptable” if it were found that Brett Kavanaugh lied to Congress in his testimony about allegations of sexual assault last week.

“I don’t think you should lie to Congress, and there have been a lot of people over the last year that have lied to congress and to me that would not be acceptable,” he said.

The FBI has finished interviewing Mark Judge, the former classmate of Brett Kavanaugh who Christine Blasey Ford identified as being in the room when Kavanaugh allegedly sexually assaulted her.

His lawyer, Barbara Van Gelder told CNN the interview was complete.
