But FBI agents could interview the other accusers and witnesses and gather additional evidence or details.
The FBI will question Deborah Ramirez, who said Kavanaughexposed himself to her at a party when both were students at Yale University, the White House official told Reuters. Kavanaugh has vehemently denied that claim.
In a statement on Twitter, Matthew Hutchinson of Forbes Media said pending scheduling, the panel with Flake will be moved to a larger and more secure location at the Under 30 Village located in City Hall Plaza. "[Kavanaugh] was clearly belligerent, aggressive, angry", he said.
Blumenthal said he was riveted by Ford's testimony and wanted to hear from the other person alleged to have witnessed the assault.
However, White House adviser Kellyanne Conway added, "It's not meant to be a fishing expedition".
"We make this request because of ABA's respect for the rule of law and due process under law", Carlson wrote. It's a Senate process. "Because, what I was seeing, experiencing, in an elevator and watching it in committee and just thinking, this is tearing the country apart", he continued.
A Democratic member of the Judiciary Committee, Senator Amy Klobuchar, told CNN that she was "very concerned" by the reported White House constraints on the inquiry. "The FBI is not tasked to do that".
Another committee member, Sen. "I think that's going to be the focus of it".
"It will be limited in scope", Conway said. In a letter Sunday, she also asked for updates on any expansion of the original directive.
The investigation is the result of a dramatic day in Washington on Friday that by all appearances began with quick movement towards Kavanaugh's confirmation and ended with a pause in the process while the FBI steps in.
Collins and Flake spoke throughout the weekend.
Many Democrats have called for the Federal Bureau of Investigation to take a broader look at whether Kavanaugh may have misled senators by minimizing his carousing behavior in high school and college or by mischaracterizing entries in his high school yearbook that could indicate a penchant for drunken and misogynistic behavior. Joe Manchin III of West Virginia and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, who are also up for re-election this year - all voted to confirm Supreme Court Justice Neil M. Gorsuch last year.
But the White House made clear there would be limits to the probe.
McConnell's office declined to elaborate Sunday on which allegations would be investigated, reiterating only that it would focus on "current credible allegations".
Yet the precise scope of the investigation remained unclear.
Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, who chairs the committee, worked to restore order after the ruckus, saying the silent roll call breaks their rules.
Swetnik said in a sworn statement this week that she knew Kavanaugh in high school and was raped by such a group at a party where Kavanaugh and Judge were present. They're going to do whatever they have to do, whatever it is they do. "They'll be doing things we have never even thought of. and hopefully at the conclusion, everything will be fine".
"Actually, I want them to interview whoever they deem appropriate, at their discretion", he tweeted.
The Kavanaugh nomination has turned into a political firestorm ahead of November congressional elections - in which Republicans will battle to keep control of Congress - and is threatening to derail Trump's push to get a conservative-minded majority on the top court ahead of the vote.
Following Ford's testimony, Kavanaugh vigorously denied the allegations before the committee and accused Democrats of launching a last-minute attempt to derail his nomination.
The others include Mark Judge, a friend of Kavanaugh who Ford said witnessed the assault and Leland Keyser and P.J. Smyth, who she said were at the gathering. Judge has claimed he has no memory of the incident Dr. Christine Blasey Ford testified about on Thursday: that Kavanaugh allegedly assaulted her at a high school party in 1982 and that Judge was in the room where it happened.
On Sunday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders denied the allegations that the administration has been interfering with the probe.
