As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:

Republican Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., said he called for an FBI investigation into allegations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh Friday because he wanted to “lend more legitimacy to this process,” adding he wouldn’t feel comfortable voting on the floor as things stand right now.

But what that investigation would look like remains unclear to him and the Democrats who backed his play in the Senate Judiciary Committee. Flake could still vote “yes” on Kavanaugh’s nomination depending on what emerges from the investigation.

The article goes on to state the following:

Flake said he initiated the backroom conversation he had with Sen. Chris Coon, D-Del., who sits on the committee, and other Democrats. As he walked through the Senate basement, accompanied by a new police detail, Flake said he and Coons had a “larger discussion about how we could lend more legitimacy to this process.”

Flake said he wanted to be sure that Democrats on the committee would “endorse” his idea because “the country needs to see some kind of bipartisan agreement even if the final vote isn’t any different, that the process is different.”

    • Julia,

      I agree. Flake caved in to the Democrats. They were all staring at him when they walked out. They know he is a weak link in the GOP and they bounced. So sad!

  1. Exactly…Sen Kamel Cow, & Blu-mentrol & other demoncrap senators who became unhinged and stormed out of the meeting with a beeline to MSM said it: they will do anything in their power to stop this vote by talking to whoever will listen…so over this bs…dragging a man through the mud all in the name of obstruct and resist & trump bash…

  2. Flake wants bipartisanship for the vote but he will never get it. Democrats aren’t interested in anything but eliminating any conservative justice for Supreme Court. He’s either stupid or naive.
