  • If Kavanaugh confirmed, 'House will have to' investigate if Senate doesn't: Democratic rep

The FBI's investigation into sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh should be "fulsome", because it's "no good" if the probe takes place just to give senators "cover", Republican Sen.

The FBI is now conducting a supplemental investigation into the sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh.

The Arizona Republican made the comments during a broader speech Friday at Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire, his latest act that could be read as an early foray into the world of 2020 presidential politics.

A demonstration had been planned to urge Flake to vote against confirming Kavanaugh.

Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., center, spoke with reporters, September 28, after meeting with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Ky.in his office in the Capitol in Washington.

On the issue of the scope of the FBI's investigation, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said White House counsel Don McGahn, who is managing Kavanaugh's nomination, "has allowed the Senate to dictate what these terms look like, and what the scope of the investigation is".

CBS News has confirmed that the White House has authorized the Federal Bureau of Investigation to expand the initial scope of the review to include interviews of anyone it deems necessary in order to vet those misconduct claims, and the president on Monday said he wants the Federal Bureau of Investigation to interview "anybody" they want to, "within reason".

"I've been failing my tribe for some time now", he continued.


"By the conventions of how party loyalists are supposed to behave, I hope to continue to fail my tribe", Flake said.

Democratic state Rep Tim Smith of Manchester, who also attended the protest, said he was unsure if any other Supreme Court nominee from Trump would face the same level of resistance as Kavanaugh.

"We're friends because we have worked together, and we have worked together because the constitutional framework that created our government ingeniously makes governing hard and compromise inevitable", Flake said. In March, he told New Hampshire Republicans that someone needs to stop Trump in the 2020 presidential contest. "It is tearing our country apart".

We are seeking to exercise our right as the owners of the Colonial to have the panel canceled for safety reasons, ' Pelton said in an initial statement.

One of them is Republican Jeff Flake of Arizona, who was greeted by hundreds of liberal protesters, victims of sexual assault among them, during an appearance Monday in Boston.

"No, not a chance", Flake said.

"For the past year, I've been speaking about the condition of our democracy because my conscience has required me to do it", Flake said. "A lot of the uproar about Kavanaugh isn't just because of how he might rule on stuff", said Smith.
