The FBI is looking into allegations of sexual assault, which Kavanaugh has loudly rejected.
McConnell said Democrats will not be satisfied, regardless of what the FBI reveals. He argued that Dems are very adept at "moving the goalposts."
With November's midterm elections looming, McConnell is anxious to get Kavanaugh confirmed as soon as possible.
