Mark Judge, Brett Kavanaugh's friend from Georgetown Preparatory School, has spoken with the FBI about the Supreme Court nominee, but the bureau has not finished talking with him yet, according to his lawyer Monday.
Judge is of special interest to the FBI's probe into sexual misconduct claims made against Kavanaugh because one of his accusers, Christine Blasey Ford, said Judge was in the room when she was allegedly assaulted.

"Mr. Judge has been interviewed by the FBI but his interview has not been completed," Barbara Van Gelder, his attorney, wrote in a statement to the Washington Examiner. "We request your patience as the FBI completes its investigation."
Ford has accused Kavanaugh of drunkenly groping her and trying to remove her clothes in a bedroom during a 1980s high school party in Maryland. She told the Senate Judiciary Committee last week she was able to free herself from him when Judge jumped on top of them.
Judge previously told committee investigators he had no knowledge of the gathering mentioned by Ford and “never saw Brett act in the manner" described by her.
The FBI has until the end of the week to wrap up its supplemental background inquiry into Kavanaugh. The Senate is expected to vote regarding his confirmation after the bureau has concluded its work.
