The FBI probe of sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is reportedly well ahead of a Friday deadline — and could wrap up as early as Wednesday morning.

The Wall Street Journal, citing unnamed sources, reported agents had interviewed at least four key people in the Kavanaugh background investigation as of Tuesday — and could wrap it up by Tuesday night, or early Wednesday.

Politico also reported that the investigation will likely end by Wednesday.

The White House set the deadline for the end of the week.

Meanwhile, it remains unclear whether the public will get to see the results of the probe.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., insisted Tuesday only senators "will be allowed to look at it." But his number two in the Senate, Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, suggested the public will see the report as well, Politico reported.

"Since the accusations have been made public, it seems to me that people are not going to be satisfied until some public statement about what the FBI supplemental background investigation showed is made," Cornyn reasoned, the Journal reported.

Senate Judiciary chairman, Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, however, warned making an FBI report public could harm future investigations.

"An FBI report, as far as I know, has never been made public," he said, the Journal reported.
