President Trump denied trying to curtail the FBI probe into sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in a Saturday night tweet:
NBC News incorrectly reported (as usual) that I was limiting the FBI investigation of Judge Kavanaugh, and witnesses, only to certain people. Actually, I want them to interview whoever they deem appropriate, at their discretion. Please correct your reporting!

NBC had reported only allegations from Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez would be considered, and the FBI wouldn't examine the accusation from Julie Swetnick. However, two sources told The New York Times Kavanaugh's high school friend, Mark Judge, will be interviewed about Swetnick; and The Washington Post reported late Saturday the FBI is contacting a growing list of people to interview, Ramirez included.
