Trump ordered the agency to reopen the background check into Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh with the stipulation that it be completed within a week after the Senate Judiciary Committee requested the president make the request for a "supplemental" investigation.
During testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on allegations of sexual assault leveled by accuser Christine Blasey Ford, Judge Brett Kavanaugh delivered an emotional denial and a stunning rebuke of the confirmation process, at times breaking down in tears. Republican Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona sough the investigation and asked that it be limited in scope and last no more than a week. Flake, who is not seeking re-election, was instrumental in ensuring there would be a week-long FBI investigation, beginning this past Friday, into the sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh. But shortly after Trump's denial, the New York Times confirmed that the White House has provided the FBI a list of witnesses it can interview and is restricting the scope of the investigation.
Ms Sanders said Mr Trump, who has vigorously defended Kavanaugh but also raised the slight possibility of withdrawing the nomination should damaging information be found, "will listen to the facts" of the FBI investigation.
Republicans, who are trying to retain control of the U.S. Congress in November elections, seek to balance their desire to have a conservative judge on the Supreme Court with sensitivity in how they handle the sexual misconduct allegations amid the reverberations of the #MeToo movement.
Deborah Ramirez's lawyer, John Clune, said Saturday that agents want to interview Ramirez, who has alleged that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party in the early 1980s. Think about them! I have two children and can not imagine that for the next 50 years they will have to have someone in the Supreme Court who has been accused of violating a young girl.
The president revisited the question of "scope" on Twitter, writing in part: "I want them to interview whoever they deem appropriate, at their discretion". "And we're out of the way and letting them do exactly that".
In Alaska, Juneau voter Sally Saddler, an independent, said she voted for Murkowski in the past, but likely wouldn't back her again if the Republican senator decides to confirm Kavanaugh.

The FBI will be investigating aspects of three women's claims against Kavanaugh, but it reportedly does not plan to question one of the women, Julie Swetnick.
Both senators condemned the partisanship in Kavanaugh's self-defense, though Flake was willing to allow him "a little leeway".
"I need to go", Flake said. "They're going to do whatever they have to do, whatever it is they do".
Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), speaking on CNN, said Kavanaugh's claims that he had never blacked out or suffered any memory loss while drinking "doesn't quite make sense to me" and said she hoped the Federal Bureau of Investigation would interview friends to determine whether that was credible. That's what happened to me and that's what you're telling all women in America, that they don't matter, that they should just keep it to themselves because if they had told the truth you're just going to help that man to power anyway.
The panel voted on Friday, along party lines, to send the nomination to the full Senate, and Mr Flake then offered his proposal for the FBI investigation. "I believe in due process", she said.
Nancy Mace, the first woman to graduate from The Citadel and a Republican state representative from Daniel Island, South Carolina, said she had been sexually assaulted as a teen herself. Kavanaugh has denied the accusation.
"A lot of times, you cope by suppressing and forgetting", said King, who leads the King University College Republicans. I haven't met her. It compiles information about the nominee's past and provides its findings to the White House, which passes them along to the committee.
