The man named as a witness to the alleged sexual assault incident between Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford in the early 1980s has completed his interview with the FBI.
Mark Judge's lawyer Barbara "Biz" Van Gelder, said in a statement on Tuesday: "Mr. Judge completed his FBI interview. We are not commenting on the questions the FBI asked Mr. Judge."
Judge is a friend and former Georgetown Preparatory School classmate of Kavanaugh, who has been accused of sexual assault by Ford. He was told by Van Gelder to leave his Washington DC-area home because of media attention and fled to a friend's house in Bethany Beach, Delaware.

Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her while they were at a house party in Maryland in 1982. Ford has said Judge was also in the bedroom during the incident. Both Kavanaugh and Judge have denied the incident occurred.
After Ford and Kavanaugh testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake said that although he supported moving the nomination out of the committee, the FBI had to investigate the allegations against them.
The White House then announced Friday afternoon that President Trump had ordered the FBI to open a week-long supplemental background investigation into Kavanaugh.
