President Donald Trump appears to have severely restricted the FBI investigation into Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s account of a violent sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, NBC News reports.

According to NBC’s reporting, sourced to a White House official, Trump has banned the FBI from investigating the gang rape allegations brought forward by Julie Swetnick.

Investigators will meet with Mark Judge, the accused accomplice of Kavanaugh. The recovering alcoholic has written extensively about his prep school exploits.

“But as of now, the FBI cannot ask the supermarket that employed Judge for records verifying when he was employed there,” a source said.

This is a big deal because while Blasey Ford cannot recall the exact date of the attack, she did testify that she remembers seeing Judge afterwards at the Potomac Village Safeway, where he worked.

In Judge’s memoir, he wrote about a short stint working as “a bag boy.”

The details could help fill-in missing information Blasey Ford’s testimony and show whether the assault happened in July 1, 1982, a night Kavanaugh documented attending a get-together than matches Blasey Ford’s description on his calendar.

Rick Wilson and Molly Jong-Fast discussed the president's potential pardons, and the risks involved with granting himself a pardon, on their podcast "The New Abnormal," posted on The Daily Beast.

“The essential thing of a pardon is it involves the admission of a crime," Wilson said, "and so he has to admit that he violated the law."
