White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah tweeted Wednesday night, upon receipt of the FBI’s report on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, that senators have “ample time” to review the materials.

Sources also told the Wall Street Journal Thursday morning that the White House had found no “corroboration” of the sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh in the report.

Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) confirmed in the early hours of Thursday morning that he had received the report and that senators would take turns reviewing its contents.

As of now, it appears that only senators and some of their staffers will get to read the report.
