The lawyer for the woman who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of exposing himself in her Yale dorm room in 1983 says the FBI “is not conducting, or not being permitted to conduct a serious investigation.”

In a series of tweets, John Clune, who represents Deborah Ramirez, says lawyers gave the FBI the names of at least 20 people who could give corroborating evidence to back up allegations made by Ramirez, who was was interviewed by the FBI on Sunday.

The FBI is expected to wrap up its investigation Wednesday.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says the full Senate will vote on the nomination this week.

Kavanaugh has vigorously denied all allegations of sexual assault or misconduct.
