Senator Flake just caucused with Democratic Senators in the committee….
He just came out and voted to advance kavanaugh up to the full Senate….
But he has made known that his request for a week delay for the FBI look at the new allegations from the women involved….(Trump ok’s?)
There is jocking going on in the hallways as Grassley and Graham trying to get things done…
And Flake troubled…
Any delay will have to be come from McConnell and Schumer….
But if other Senator’s have Flake’s back?
There is a delay coming…
Flake HAS worked with others to slow things down…
Republicans now have the job of selling this to Trump….
But they actually don’t have the votes it appears to get over the finish line so Trump will have to accept the delay….
Trump has gone out of his way to NOT diss Ford….
Trump is signaling that he does NOT KNOW if he’ll get Kavanaugh on the bench…
He keeps saying this is in the Senate’s hands…
Trump seems to have doubts, eh?
Trump calls Blasey Ford “very credible” and says he’ll let the Senate work its process. This after he attacked the allegations against Kavanaugh. What a mess. It sounds like Pres Trump wants no part of this. ‘I will be totally reliant on what Sen Grassley and (GOPs) want to do.”
Props to the woman who confronted Flake in the elevator….
