WASHINGTON – The top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee has given federal investigators information from a confidential source about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh at the 11th hour of his confirmation proceeding.
The information provided to the FBI by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-California, was material the bureau was not aware of previously, but it has not triggered a criminal inquiry, a government official said Thursday.
The official, who is not authorized to comment publicly about the matter, said that the FBI provided the information to the White House as an additional part of the background check. No additional action by the FBI was required, the official said.
