Senate Judiciary Committee Advances Kavanaugh to Floor Vote After Stunning Call from Jeff Flake for FBI Investigation: WATCH

While the vote on Kavanaugh is postponed, the full Senate is now officially considering Kavanaugh's nomination.

"It's about sinking Donald Trump and it's about politicizing the Supreme Court". He later said he backed the short delay, even though he'd like to vote sooner. "As the Senate has requested, this update must be limited in scope and completed in less than one week", the President said in a statement, Efe reported. But there was no specific direction as to what that might include.

With a CNN camera behind them broadcasting live, Archila and Maria Gallagher blocked the doors of an lift for about five minutes in an effort to confront Flake about his just-announced support for Kavanaugh, who is facing several allegations of sexual misconduct.

He missed the emotional Senate Judiciary Committee testimony by Christine Blasey Ford, who said Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in the early 1980s when they were both in high school, and the combative denials from Kavanaugh himself. He told The Atlantic that despite his call for an investigation, he still meant to support Kavanaugh, "unless they turn up something - and they might". In a new letter to the Senate panel, he said he would co-operate with any law enforcement agency assigned to investigate "confidentially".

Her attorney, John Clune, said Ramirez is cooperating with the Federal Bureau of Investigation as agents investigate the batch of allegations in Kavanaugh's reopened background check. "When and if we do, we will promptly disclose to them all information and witnesses in our possession", Michael Avenatti, a lawyer for Swetnick, said Saturday on Twitter.

MAK: So Senator Flake announced Friday morning that he would be supporting Kavanaugh. 'But I think she embellished what happened, or she would have gone to some authority or said something about it years ago'.

"Do you have any particular motives to ascribe to Leland?", asked Rachel Mitchell, a career sexual crime prosecutor hired by committee Republicans.

Trophies over goals for Chelsea star Hazard
Chelsea assistant manager Gianfranco Zola said Hazard was one of the best players in the world in the aftermath of the match. Signed in the summer from Stoke City for a paltry £13m, the Swiss midfielder has made a bright start to life on Merseyside.

That vote was later delayed as Flake and Senator Christopher Coons, a Democrat, worked on a deal to allow one week for the FBI to investigate the claims against Kavanaugh, which he has vehemently denied. The committee vote was 11-10 along party lines.

The delay in a full Senate vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation to accommodate the new examination was forced Friday by Republican Sens.

Attention quickly turned to a handful of undeclared senators.

"As far as I'm concerned this Congress has hit bottom and started to dig", the senator said. Sens. Joe Manchin (W.Va.) and Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.) are undecided on the Democratic side after Sen.

Speaking to supporters at a rally Saturday night in Wheeling, West Virginia, Trump accused Democrats of using "ruthless and outrageous tactics" against Kavanaugh and urged voters to support Republicans in November's midterm elections. In 2018, after a year of sparring with Trump, they're looking for payback, and they're not exactly particular about how they get it.

Flake's vote on final approval is not assured either.

But the results could also raise more questions about Kavanaugh, and trigger enough opposition to sink his nomination. Here's what she said next. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah. "But they have a right to request it". The White House will in turn provide that report to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
