Christine Blasey Ford's lawyers want the FBI to interview her as part of their probe of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, saying it is "inconceivable" she would not be included in the investigation.

In a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray on Tuesday, the lawyers said they had not been contacted yet.

"It is inconceivable that the FBI could conduct a thorough investigation of Dr. Ford's allegations without interviewing her, Judge Kavanaugh, or the witnesses we have identified in our letters to you," lawyers Debra Katz and Michael Bromwich wrote to top FBI officials, Politico reported.

Ford, a California professor, has said she was sexually assaulted by Kavanaugh at a party when they were teenagers. He denies that allegation.

The bureau is expected to wrap up its investigation of sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh as soon as Wednesday, opening the possibility of a final Senate vote on Kavanaugh later this week, Politico reported.

According to the news outlet, Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has said the FBI's final report on Kavanaugh will be available to senators only, but Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, said senators expect to have reviewed the FBI findings before voting on Kavanaugh, and "People will know what the FBI said before we end up voting."
