A key Republican senator pushed back Wednesday on calls by Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser to allow for an FBI investigation before a hearing next week, the latest indication that Republicans may be closing in on the votes to confirm President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee if Christine Blasey Ford declines to testify.

“I think it’s not fair for Judge Kavanaugh for her not to come forward and testify,” Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, a crucial swing vote, told local radio station WVOM.
