The White House and Senate Republicans are hopeful that Judge Brett Kavanaugh is one big step closer to being confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court.

After the FBI completed its investigation into sexual assault allegations against the nominee, members of the Senate were able to review it in a secure room in the Capitol today. Groups of Republicans, then Democrats were allowed to view the report for one hour each.

As for now, the report will not be released to the public.

Republican Chuck Grassley said, "there nothing it in that we didn't already know." Democrats say the FBI probe didn't go far enough.
