For once, Flake doesn't flake

The FederalistFollowing Thursday’s eight-hour hearing, Republican Sen. Jeff Flake announced he will vote to confirm Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

“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,” Flake said.

Hold the vote, seat the man, and build the wall.

UPDATE: I wrote this post after Kavanaugh was voted out of committee. Now Flake is flaking on the full vote. Ugh.

He wants another week of FBI investigation on the "current allegation". This will do nothing beyond offer the Democrats time to trot out even more allegations. When this started, I would have said Ford's allegations are impossible to prove or disprove. However, we have now pretty strongly disproven them. Every witness she named said it did not happen. That's 4 to 1.


UPDATE: Trump orders FBI to investigate. I wonder who the Deep State has on tap for this investigation?
