Reaction from all across the country, on the FBI's investigation into the allegations of Judge Brett Kavanaugh's alleged sexual misconduct.  

While some GOP Senators call the FBI's report into Judge Kavanaugh "reassuring" and "thorough," Democrats blast the investigation's findings, calling it a "sham" and a "horrific cover-up." On Thursday, protests broke out in the nation's capital.  Back here at home, Ohio Senator Rob Portman told Your News Now that he believes the FBI report doesn't say anything new. He said he'll be reading the report in its entirety Thursday night, however, he already feels strongly that it shows the allegations are untrue. 

"As the Chairman of the Committee has said publicly, there's no new evidence in the reports supporting the claims of Dr. Ford, but I want to read the whole thing myself, cover to cover, and I'm going to do that and I think it's very important to do that, you take these allegations very seriously," Sen. Portman said. "These are serious allegations, but, you also have a presumption in our country of innocence until proven guilty."

A vote could come as early as Friday.
