Sen. Dianne Feinstein (Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, is calling for the White House and the FBI to release the written directive President Trump sent launching the investigation into Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Feinstein sent a letter to White House counsel Don McGahn and FBI Director Christopher Wray on Sunday requesting that a copy of Trump's written directive be released to the committee.

"Given the seriousness of the allegations before the Senate, I am writing to request that you provide the Senate Judiciary Committee with a copy of the written directive by the White House to the FBI," Feinstein wrote.

She also requested that the bureau release the names of any additional witnesses or evidence that is included if FBI agents expand the original investigation.

Trump on Friday ordered the bureau to conduct an additional investigation to update the file on Kavanaugh after Senate Republicans agreed to a one-week investigation.

The directive came one day after Christine Blasey Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee and described in detail how Kavanaugh allegedly assaulted her in the 1980s when they were both high school students.

Ford was the first of three women to publicly detail allegations against Kavanaugh. He has denied all of their claims.

Deborah Ramirez, the second woman to come forward with accusations against Kavanaugh, has reportedly spoken with the FBI as part of the additional investigation as of Sunday.

Ramirez told The New Yorker last week that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a dorm party at Yale University in the 1980s, causing her to touch him when she pushed him again.

The third woman, Julie Swetnick, claims that Kavanaugh attended a party where she was drugged with "Quaaludes or something similar" and attacked by a series of men in a "gang rape."
