Signaling the continued White House support for Kavanaugh, spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted praise for Sen.
Kavanaugh's nomination will face a test in the Senate, which has a tight 51-49 Republican majority.
The organization added that allowing a "thorough FBI investigation" from the Senate, a potential development Democratic lawmakers have fervently called for, into the allegations would "demonstrate its commitment to a Supreme Court that is above reproach".
