WASHINGTON, D.C. - Senator Joe Donnelly said he will not support Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court.

In a statement, Donnelly said he based his decision on the credible sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh.

“Unfortunately, despite having the time and opportunity to do so, Senator McConnell has refused to allow that FBI investigation. Even the American Bar Association, which has previously rated Judge Kavanaugh as ‘well qualified’ has called for an FBI investigation, where we could learn more information and other potential witnesses could be interviewed," said Donnelly in a statement.

Donnelly said he will work with President Donald Trump on a new nominee.
