President Trump said Monday that he would support FBI agents interviewing all the individuals who have raised sexual assault and excessive drinking allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
"It wouldn't bother me at all," Trump said Monday in response to whether or not the FBI should broaden the scope of its investigation. "Now, it depends. I don't know all three of the accusers. Certainly, I imagine they are going to interview two. The third one I don't know much about, but it wouldn't bother me at all. I have heard that the third one has — I have no idea if this is true — has very little credibility. If there is any credibility, interview the third one."

The president made sure to note that he is only in favor of a quick, expedited FBI investigation because he feels it is unfair to Kavanaugh, his wife and his family.
"I want it to be done quickly, because it is unfair to the family and to the judge," Trump said.
Last week Trump ordered the FBI to investigate Christine Blasey Ford's allegation that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a high school party in the early 1980s.
Kavanaugh made it past a critical step in the nomination process Friday afternoon after the Senate Judiciary Committee voted in favor of his nomination to the Supreme Court. The vote came roughly 24 hours after Kavanaugh defended himself against Ford's allegations that he sexually assaulted her when they were both in high school.
The nominee got the thumbs up from the committee Friday afternoon, but the process almost immediately hit another snag after Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., called for no more than a weeklong delay so that the FBI can investigate Ford's allegations.
The FBI began investigating over the weekend and is expected to wrap up the investigation in the coming days.
