(Newser) – First came the fiercely partisan hearings. Now, the FBI probe: "What we are hearing are reports that they are trying to limit this," says Sen. Amy Klobuchar on CNN's State of the Union about reports that President Trump is trying to limit the FBI investigation into Brett Kavanaugh, per the Hill. "I'm very concerned about this because the White House should not be allowed to micromanage an FBI investigation." The Democrat says she was "really stunned" when Kavanaugh, asked whether he ever drank so much it blurred his memory, angrily threw the question back at her, per Politico. "This is basically a job interview for the highest court in the land," says Kobuchar. "... I was actually trying to get to the truth." A propos:

  • No fishing: "No, the White House is not micromanaging this process," says Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Fox News Sunday, per Fox News. "This is—the Senate is dictating the terms." But "this can't become a fishing expedition like the Democrats would like to see it be."
