The White House and FBI have been interacting gingerly throughout the investigation into Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, in part due to the fear that Democrats could win the House and subpoena internal communications, according to a Tuesday Washington Post report.

An unnamed source told the Washington Post that the two institutions are being “very careful with each other.”

“Everyone realizes that they are under a huge amount of scrutiny, and will be when it’s over, too,” the source added.

Lawyers for two of Kavanaugh’s accusers, professor Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez, have voiced concerns that the investigation is cursory or being stymied by members of the administration who want to see Kavanaugh confirmed.
