Trump believes Kavanaugh will be confirmed, depends on FBI

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Donald Trump said on Tuesday he believed his Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, will be confirmed by the U.S. Senate this week, but it depends on what comes back in the FBI probe of sexual misconduct allegations.

“I want to see what happens with the FBI,” Trump told reporters at the White House before he left on a visit to Philadelphia.
