As the investigation is not a criminal one, the FBI will not say whether it believes the allegations are true.

Ludington played basketball at Yale (and later, professionally in Europe) and said that athletes comprised much of Kavanaugh's social circle. But he says anew that the Senate will vote on Kavanaugh this week.
