Indeed, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is not tasked with drawing conclusions, but, Comey wrote, "their granular factual presentation will spotlight the areas of conflict and allow decision makers to reach their own conclusions".
Yet the precise scope of the investigation remained unclear. The appellate court judge has denied the allegations. "They're going to do whatever they have to do, whatever it is they do". They'll be doing things that we have never even thought of.
"And hopefully at the conclusion everything will be fine".

Kavanaugh told the Senate panel that he had gone through six background checks, "six separate FBI background investigations over 26 years". The Maine Republican supports the new FBI investigation and is among a few Republican and Democratic senators who have not announced a position on Kavanaugh.

The FBI has been asked to complete an investigation against Judge Kavanaugh, who is facing allegations of sexual assault from at least three women.
In last week's hearing, Ford said Judge witnessed Kavanaugh's alleged assault and jumped on top of them as it happened, sending all three tumbling and allowing her to escape.
On Sunday, CNN reported that two Republican sources familiar with the matter have said that the hope is that when investigators sit down with Judge, they will ask him not only about Ford's allegations, but also about those made by Julie Swetnick.
Trump has been accused of limiting an FBI investigation into the allegations against Kavanaugh and excluding Swetnick from the process.

Mr Judge has not appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee, but said in a statement: "I do not recall the party described in Dr Ford's letter". Kavanaugh has denied being the perpetrator. His testimony followed that Ford's.
The committee has said the probe should be limited to "current credible allegations" against Kavanaugh and be finished by Friday.
The investigators will compile information about Mr Kavanaugh's past and provide their findings to the White House and include the information in Mr Kavanaugh's background file, which is available to senators.
