However, he sought to make it clear that "this update must be limited in scope and completed in less than one week".
"They have free rein. They'll be doing things that we've never even thought of, and hopefully at the conclusion, everything will be fine", he added. "And hopefully at the conclusion everything will be fine".
In a separate action involving the FBI, Sen.
Along with Ramirez, a friend of Christine Blasey Ford, who also lodged allegations about Kavanaugh and testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, says she will comply with the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
In his testimony Thursday, Kavanaugh claimed that Keyser's earlier statements had "refuted" Blasey's accusations. It will allow the FBI to investigate allegations of sexual assault leveled against Kavanaugh by several women. The Judiciary Committee has said the probe should be limited to "current credible allegations" against Kavanaugh and be finished by next Friday.
That made the two women staking out his office angry, and they confronted him when he tried to leave for Friday's hearing.

In an interview published Saturday in The Atlantic, Flake said his refusal to issue a vote on Kavanaugh without a week-long "pause" for an FBI investigation into the allegations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh was a last-ditch effort to overcome partisan battles that have plagued the confirmation process.
The other person named by Blasey Ford as having taken part in her attack, Kavanaugh's school friend Judge, said in a letter dated Friday that he would "co-operate with any law enforcement agency that is assigned to confidentially investigate these allegations". It was true, she said, that there were gaps in her memory of that night in the early 1980s - she could not recall which boy pushed her into the room, or how she got home.
Keyser's last statement about the matter said she "does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without, Dr. Ford".
Typically, background investigations do not go back decades, but that's what is needed in Kavanaugh's case because the allegations are about incidents said to have happened during his teenage years.
In another development Friday, a high school friend of Kavanaugh, Mark Judge, said he was willing to cooperate with any FBI investigation.
And it staves off the potentially catastrophic political optics of the move to "plow right through", in the words of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, the process of giving Kavanaugh a lifetime appointment on the nation's highest court in a manner that appeared in no way to be aimed at achieving a just result rather than a political win.
