Dems say FBI's Kavanaugh report `very limited'

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Senate Democrats are criticizing the White House for what they say is a limited FBI investigation of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, says the most notable part of report into sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh "is what's not in it."

Kavanaugh denies the accusations.

Feinstein says the report made available to senators on Thursday is "very limited" and she says "it looks to be a product of an incomplete investigation."

Feinstein says the White House may have limited the probe.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer says he disagrees with a statement by the committee's GOP chairman that the report found "no hint of misconduct" by Kavanaugh.

Schumer is calling for the report to be made public as well the directive the White House gave the FBI ordering the investigation.
