Democrats have highlighted the problems with the limited FBI background check that took agents just days to complete. However, CNN’s Kate Bolduan read off some facts about the document.

The report is apparently over 1,000 pages long. The only information Judiciary Committee members received was a briefing by the FBI.

A copy of the document is locked behind closed doors and the report cannot leave that room. Senators will not be allowed to take a copy outside of the U.S. Capitol to review in their offices or at home this evening. That gives them less than 24 hours to read 1,000 pages at the same time their colleagues are also trying to read it. They would be required to read one-page per minute to read it all in less than 17 hours.

“The most notable part of the report is what’s not in it,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif.

Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said that their fears were that the investigation would not be extensive enough and “those fears were realized.”
