The FBI has completed its interview with Brett Kavanaugh’s high school friend Mark Judge as part of its investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, his attorney told the Daily News Tuesday.

Judge was allegedly in the room when Christine Blasey Ford, a California college professor, was attacked by Kavanaugh, Ford claims.

“Mr. Judge completed his FBI interview,” Barbara Van Gelder, Judge’s attorney, told The News in an email. “We are not commenting on the questions the FBI asked Mr. Judge.”

Ford told lawmakers on the Senate Judiciary Committee last week that a drunken Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed, clasped a hand over her mouth and groped her during a high school party in the 1980s.

Kavanaugh and Judge have denied the allegations.

Van Gelder wouldn’t say Tuesday when the interview concluded or what Judge was asked. Judge is one of multiple people the FBI has already interviewed as part of its reopened background investigation into Kavanaugh.

Two other people who Ford said attended the same party have also been interviewed by FBI agents.

However, Ford has not been contacted, her legal team told CNN on Tuesday.

Others who knew Kavanaugh during his college years have been in touch with investigators.

Chad Ludington, a Yale University classmate of Kavanaugh who came forward with claims that Kavanaugh had not been fully truthful about his drinking habits when he testified before lawmakers, was also be meeting with agents on Tuesday, according to reports.

Ludington’s public statements have led to a focus on a 1985 bar brawl that was partially sparked when Kavanaugh tossed a beer at a man he and his friends mistook for the lead singer of the band UB40.

Trump agreed on Friday to allow the FBI to spend a week following up on sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh. Questions have been raised about whether the White House is limiting the scope of the probe.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Tuesday that the results of the renewed FBI probe will remain under wraps — with only lawmakers allowed to view the results.

“After the FBI shares what they’ve found, Senators will have the opportunity to vote,” he tweeted Tuesday. “We’ll have the opportunity to vote ‘no’ on the politics of personal destruction. We’ll have the opportunity to vote ‘yes’ on this fine nominee.”
