As we all expected, the FBI report that was released this morning shows no evidence to corroborate any allegations against Kavanaugh of sexual assault or misconduct:
Fox News confirms the FBI supplemental background investigation report shows no evidence to corroborate the allegations of sexual assault or misconduct by Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh. https://t.co/pKzX18jINu— Fox News Politics (@foxnewspolitics) October 4, 2018
From Fox News:
A source familiar with the supplemental report told Fox News it shows no evidence corroborating the allegations of sexual assault or misconduct against the nominee. Other specifics from the report were not immediately available, but Fox News is told the review included interviews with nine people, along with a sworn statement from another. This went beyond the original Senate request for interviews with four people, though the FBI did not dive into Kavanaugh’s drinking habits in high school, one area of contention, because the Senate did not formally request the information.
The White House has also concluded the same:

I’ll let you know this morning when I have more on the report if it gets leaked out.
Chuck Grassley says this about the FBI report:
