"This is now the 7th time the FBI has investigated Judge Kavanaugh", Trump said in a tweet.
The FBI didn't interview Kavanaugh or Christine Blasey Ford, one of his accusers, because it didn't have clear authority from the White House to do so, according to two people with knowledge of the matter.
The last undecided Democrat, Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia, said while leaving the secure room on Thursday that he would have to come back on Friday because he'd been kicked out so Republicans could have their turn. If the nominee's supporters prevail in that vote, Kavanaugh could be confirmed this weekend to the nation's highest court.

However, he said, all of those meetings resulted in him being confronted with "wrongful and sometimes vicious allegations. The Constitution gives the Senate an important role in the confirmation process, but you have replaced advise and consent with search and destroy, '" sad Kavanaugh during his Congressional testimony last week.
Ford's attorneys said in a statement that they were "profoundly disappointed" in the probe. And with a Senate test vote on Kavanaugh's nomination set for this Friday, October 5, Bloomberg.com's Mike Dorning is reporting that FBI director Christopher A. Wray "is documenting what's happening behind the scenes in order to help ensure the bureau's activities in the Kavanaugh investigation are captured and perhaps made public one day".
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters at a rare White House briefing that on Wednesday night that "the President was stating the facts" at the MS rally.
Timing is everything. This supplemental FBI investigation of new claims against Kavanaugh would've happened two months ago had Senate Democrats followed standard procedures and shared the letter they received from Ford, detailing her allegations against Kavanaugh with their Republican colleagues and the FBI.
Several senators said 10 witnesses were interviewed for the report.

Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., said five of the witnesses involved Ford's claims and four were related to Deborah Ramirez, who has asserted that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her when both were Yale freshmen.
And that has left a lot of people, including Senate Democrats, wondering just how complete this investigation was. In her first speech on the Senate floor, she announced that it was her "duty" to support Kavanaugh.
Kavanaugh said he was more emotional during the hearing than he has ever been before and that he "might have been too emotional at times" during his testimony due to "vile and violent threats" that his wife and daughters have faced in recent weeks.
Flake told reporters that "we've seen no additional corroborating information" about the claims against Kavanaugh.
Neither has said how she will vote.
The encounter weighed on him, said Flake, who later forced Republicans to delay voting on Kavanaugh while the FBI conducts another background investigation.
Flake said the comments were "kind of appalling" in an interview with NBC News. "It's time to vote".
"While I believe there is some energy on the other side as well, I don't think it matches the energy that was created on our side that was already at high level", he said.
Senator Susan Collins, a Maine Republican who also has yet to declare her stand on the nomination, was also critical of Trump. "Nobody told them where to go, who to interview or how to interview them", Mr. "This great life can not be ruined by mean" and "despicable Democrats and totally uncorroborated allegations!"
