President Donald Trump accused Senate Democrats of acting in bad faith by requesting an FBI investigation into Judge Brett Kavanaugh, in a Thursday tweet.

Trump animatedly tweeted about Kavanaugh throughout Thursday morning defending his nominee against decades old allegations of sexual assault. The president’s tweets come as the FBI finished its investigation into the allegations.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley issued a statement after receiving a briefing on the FBI investigation saying “this investigation found no hint of misconduct and the same is true of the six prior FBI background investigations conducted during Judge Kavanaugh’s 25 years of public service,” adding “it’s time to vote. I’ll be voting to confirm Judge Kavanaugh.”
