    The only thing the FBI should investigate is who leaked Ford to the press. I think it was Ford herself or someone she asked to leak it.

    FLAKE FLAKES IN SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE — Asks to Delay Senate Floor Vote on Kavanaugh for One Week (VIDEO)

    September 28, 2018



    BOOM — FLAKE FLAKES!!!


    Outgoing Senator Jeff Flake asks for the US Senate to delay the House floor vote for a week.


    Flake also asked for an FBI investigation into the baseless charges against Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

    The Senate Judiciary Committee then moved to confirm Judge Kavanaugh 11 votes to 10 nays for the Democrats.


    This was after Flake met with several Democrats this morning outside the hearing room.

    Earlier Flake said he would vote to confirm Flake — so he had a change of heart.

    Uniparty = Swamp
    Of course they want all the DemoQuack and Anti-Trumpers in the FBI to do the "investigation", that's why only Democrats and idiots are asking for it.

    2:35 PM: Coons also said he thinks the FBI should investigate “other allegations” if they come forward in the next week.
    Coons says has traveled around world with Flake, knows he is concerned that our country's division right now teaches wrong thing to world about our democracy.

    1:55 PM: Senate Judiciary Committee votes Kavanaugh nomination out of committee (11-10). Flake says he will be only comfortable moving on the floor with the one-week investigation/due diligence. Grassley and Graham note that they don’t control what happens on the floor.
    MORE: Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) voted 'yea' to move the process forward, but said he will not vote in favor of Kavanaugh being confirmed in a full floor vote unless he sees an FBI investigation of up to one week into the allegations of Christine Blasey Ford https://t.co/ioZf8jiXvIpic.twitter.com/4PB9dNZpBc
    — CBS Evening News (@CBSEveningNews) September 28, 2018

    1:51 PM: Grassley, citing point of personal privilege, calls on Flake to speak before the vote. Flake says he thinks it would be proper to delay the floor vote for up to one week to enable the FBI to due an investigation, limited to time and scope to no more than one week. He says he will vote to advance the vote to the floor with that understanding.

    1:07 PM: Blumenthal talks about how Kavanaugh was “filled with anger” and walks out after his speech. (He walked out with Harris/Hirono at the start only to come back to get some camera time.)
    Sen. Blumenthal: "The United States of America deserves not just a good nominee, but the best person for the job. And the person that we saw come before us yesterday was filled with such anger, that I cannot accept that he would be an impartial and objective justice on [SCOTUS]." pic.twitter.com/KpjoBosxIt

    12:49 PM: Sen. Kennedy calls the confirmation hearings an “intergalactic freak show” and says Congress has hit “rock bottom.” He says there were no winners in the room yesterday. There were just two human beings in pain. He blasts the “cynical games” that have damaged Ford, Kavanaugh, and their families irreparably. He says this is no country for creepy old men, or young men, or middle-aged men. But he also says he doesn’t want to live in a country without due process where the accuser and accused are not entitled to respect, fairness, and due process. He says the people who betrayed Ford’s trust and did not tell her she could testify in California should bow their heads in shame and hide their heads in bags for the rest of their lives. He also quotes Matthew 16:26 to close his remarks: “For what is a person profited if he gains the whole world and he loses his soul?”


    12:48 PM: Drama Queen Booker now dramatically announces that he is going to leave the hearing because he cannot participate in something that history will not judge favorably.
    "I cannot participate in what I know history will look back to be as a dark moment again, the same way we look at the Anita Hill-Clarence Thomas trials," Senator Cooker says in concluding remarks. "We should listen to women." https://t.co/NmIZm7XrXqpic.twitter.com/CgjwPUuISY

    12:25 PM: Sen. Spartacus (D-“T-Bone”) now speaking about how he has always wanted to be on the Judiciary Committee and how he fought to get on Judiciary Committee. Booker, who has written about groping a woman in high school, says the process has been a “sham.” He proudly talks about how he “willfully” and “knowingly” violated the rules re: “releasing documents” (publicity stunt). Booker “resents” that Republicans accused Ford of “partisanship.” He says it shifted the debate from “raw partisanship” to “something deeper.” Booker praises Grassley for being genuinely concerned about Ford’s humanity behind closed doors even when the klieg lights were off. Grassley says Booker has spoken for 17 minutes already and wonders if he will let anyone else speak. Booker speaking about “dark corners” in American society and says the Supreme Court is not an entitlement.

    12:21 PM: Chairman Grassley doing excellent job–succinctly pointing out when Democrats are wrong and moving the hearing along. He may realize some Republicans may not be doing Kavanaugh any favors by bloviating and asks Republicans to keep their statements brief.

    (I personally love Grassley’s OG Tweeting style. It’s how Twitter was originally envisioned to be used.)

    12:15 PM: Coons says he was against Kavanaugh after he first testified because of Kavanaugh’s expansive view of executive power. He asks for a one-week delay and says “not recalling is not the same as refuting” when talking about the various named parties who have sent in statements to the Judiciary Committee about the gathering in question.

    12:10 PM: Indiana’s Mike Braun (GOP Senate challenger) after Dem. Donnelly announces “no” vote on Kavanaugh

    This entire process has been an embarrassment to our democracy as Hoosiers watched firsthand how Senator Donnelly’s liberal colleagues used uncorroborated allegations to create a media circus designed to smear and destroy Judge Kavanaugh’s reputation. Donnelly’s decision to oppose President Trump’s highly qualified nominee is a grave mistake, but proves he is more concerned with standing with his liberal Democrat leaders than standing for Hoosiers. I continue to strongly support Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.

    12:05 PM: House Democrats now saying Kavanaugh “should be prosecuted to full extent of the law.” Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) is the House Judiciary Committee’s Ranking Member.

    11:55 AM: Cruz lamenting today’s tribalism and says Kavanaugh may never be able to coach girl’s basketball again–he says could be a “real consequence” of the hearings. He also says that Kavanaugh doesn’t have a “pattern” of sexual assault like many other disgraced executives/journalists who have been exposed. He says Kavanaugh’s reputation “for a long time” has been that of a “boring boy scout.”

    11:31 AM: Klobuchar says there was “a lot of chest beating” that went on on the other side and says she doesn’t think the “innocent” was protected yesterday. She doesn’t want to hear about Republicans “respecting” Ford if they are not going to support an FBI investigation. Klobuchar says Kavanaugh was “sanctimonious” and nobody is “entitled” to be on the Supreme Court.

    11:24 AM: Grassley immediately points out that Kavanaugh’s calendar has six boys listed and Dr. Ford said there were four boys at the gathering in question. Grassley says Whitehouse’s allegations about FBI investigations are false.

    11:17 AM: Whitehouse claiming July 1 entry on Kavanaugh’s calendar could be “corroborating evidence.” Whitehouse says Mark Judge’s letter is “ridiculous” and “investigator Kavanaugh” would not have tolerated letters like this from the “third person in the room” had their been one with Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky.

    11:15 AM: Whitehouse doesn’t buy Kavanaugh’s explanations about boofing and Devil’s Triangle. People around the world must have been confused by all of this slang brought up in yesterday’s hearing.

    "I don't believe 'the Devil's triangle' is a drinking game," Sen. Whitehouse tells Congress, "and I don't believe calling yourself a 'girls alumnus' is being her friend."

Leahy says the others have said they simply do not recall the incident in question. He says he does not have the “veracity” or the “temperament” to be a Justice.

    9:40 AM: Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) begins the proceedings.

    9:35 AM: Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) will vote for Kavanaugh:

    After hearing more than 30 hours of testimony from Judge Kavanaugh earlier this month, I was prepared to support his nomination based on his view of the law and his record as a judge. In fact, I commented at the time that had he been nominated in another era, he would have likely received 90+ votes.

    When Dr. Ford’s allegations against Judge Kavanaugh surfaced two weeks ago, I insisted that she be allowed to testify before the committee moved to a vote. Yesterday, we heard compelling testimony from Dr. Ford, as well as a persuasive response from Judge Kavanaugh. I wish that I could express the confidence that some of my colleagues have conveyed about what either did or did not happen in the early 1980s, but I left the hearing yesterday with as much doubt as certainty.

    What I do know is that our system of justice affords a presumption of innocence to the accused, absent corroborating evidence. That is what binds us to the rule of law. While some may argue that a different standard should apply regarding the Senate’s advice and consent responsibilities, I believe that the constitution’s provisions of fairness and due process apply here as well.

    I will vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh.

    They will delay this another week.

    Does not matter if the Judge comes out smelling like a rose after ANOTHER FBI investigation.

    They will NOT change their NO vote.

    They cast their NO vote the day he was announced as the candidate and never intended to be fair in this process!

    They just want to delay this...and delay getting another Judge nominated in his place!

    The next one they will pull the same crap!

    You can't count on Flake. In a week, he'll side with the DemoQuacks on something else that comes up. Republicans need to put the pressure on Flake to the extent they can.

    This is why we desperately need more Republicans in the Congress, both Houses.

    To do this to Brett Kavanaugh and his family .... is a continuation of a national disgrace, dancing with demons, liars, frauds, fabricators, schemers, bribers, all the worst of our country, and it is unforgivable. Going back to high school and allowing "repressed memory" crap to interfere with the judiciary of our country?

    Unbelievable. So frustrating.

    Rush Limbaugh wonders if Senator Flake might throw in his deal for investigation of Brett Kavanaugh to ask the FBI to reopen and investigate Hillary's emails.

    Candace Owens Drops a Truth Bomb on Jeff Flake and Warning to America


    September 28, 2018


    FLAKE FLAKES….


    Outgoing Senator Jeff Flake asked for the US Senate to delay the House floor vote for a week.


    Flake also asked for an FBI investigation into the baseless charges against Judge Brett


    The Senate Judiciary Committee then moved to confirm Judge Kavanaugh 11 votes to 10 nays for the Democrats.




    Conservative leader Candace Owens dropped this truth bomb on Flake after today’s vote.

    Candace Owens: Jeff Flake has just indicated that mob rule and radical feminism are the manner in which our republic shall be brought to its knees.


    He is proving that any and every man’s life can be crushed by the whim of an emotional woman.

    He is a true American coward.

    Yes this. If you have noted the playbook's INTENSE emphasis on the FBI... the inclusion of Michael Bromwich, FBI insider, makes a lot of sense.

    Bromwich involvement makes more sense now, he knows @FBI procedures in and out, her team will litigate every syllable they will drag this out for months and he can work directly with McCabe to coordinate with all the right people... all under the guise of “attorney client”

    Yes, but the committee vote was taken and it was 11-10 for Kavanaugh. Nothing was done in Committee on record by Flake to get this delay and to the FBI. So isn't this really up to McConell and McConnell only to hold the vote Tues-Weds and be

    Flake said "“limited in time and scope" and "what's before us." Majority Leader McConnell gets to decide what that means. Meantime, Democrats launch "Scorched Earth: Phase 1" i.e. blackmailing to out Senators as sex predators, philaderers and/or homosexuals to secure "Nay" votes.

    After being ambushed by Democrats, Flake ignores his earlier position and caves! Seems Republicans have been doing a lot of that over the last 18 or so months.
