Mr Kavanaugh would not answer directly when he was asked on Thursday if he would agree to an FBI investigation, but said he would do whatever the Judiciary Committee wanted. "Unfortunately, that's part of the "search and destroy" process that, frankly, I think is an embarrassment to the Senate". "And that should be the scope of it", Graham said.
