There’s new reporting today on the FBI’s supplemental investigation into Brett Kavanaugh ordered by President Donald Trump yesterday.
According to the Washington Post, the FBI has reached out to Deborah Ramirez, which her attorney confirmed:

Ramirez spoke to The New Yorker in a report several days ago:
In her initial conversations with The New Yorker, she was reluctant to characterize Kavanaugh’s role in the alleged incident with certainty. After six days of carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney, Ramirez said that she felt confident enough of her recollections to say that she remembers Kavanaugh had exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party, thrust his penis in her face, and caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away. Ramirez is now calling for the F.B.I. to investigate Kavanaugh’s role in the incident. “I would think an F.B.I. investigation would be warranted,” she said.
Minutes before the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to move Kavanaugh to the floor for a final vote, Senator Jeff Flake called for a supplemental FBI investigation into Kavanaugh.
