Brett Kavanaugh looked like a shoe-in for confirmation.
He turned the tables with a stunning performance in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
But 24 hours later, he got some very bad news.
Jeff Flake Stabs Republicans In The Back
Republicans breathed a sigh of relief when on Friday morning RINO Senator Jeff Flake said he would vote to confirm Kavanaugh.
Flake stated that Ford failing to corroborate her ridiculous allegations was the reason he would vote “yes” on Kavanaugh.
But hours later, he executed a stunning betrayal.
Flake caved to media and Democrat pressure and announced he could not vote for Kavanaugh until the FBI conducted a one-week investigation.
“I think it would be proper to delay the floor vote for up to but not more than one week in order to let the FBI do an investigation, limited in time and scope,” Flake said in a Judiciary Committee hearing.
Flake later claimed, however, he still wanted to confirm Kavanaugh.
“I am a conservative. I would like to see Judge Kavanaugh confirmed. And I hope to be able to do that,” Flake said. “But I want a better process … involving the FBI, reopening the background investigation, which is what so many of my colleagues and people across the country have been asking for.”
Democrats jumped for joy.
They now had seven more days to produce women to lie about Kavanaugh in order to create doubt about his nomination.
Liberals Praise Flake
Liberals heaped praise on Flake.
They secretly loved the fact that his betrayal gave them an additional week to kill the Kavanaugh nomination.
Left-wing historian Jon Meacham tweeted:
While so much of our era is about the triumph of tribalism over truth, today became a good one when a senator decided we needed more facts, not more passion, before making an epochal decision. A victory for our better angels.
And CNN’s far-left host Brooke Baldwin said, “There was some semblance today of bipartisanship, and Senator Flake listening to what his Democratic colleagues were saying. Because this matters… Put the partisan politics and the insults and the spin to one side.”
Conservatives React With Fury
Trump supporters believe Jeff Flake is a RINO traitor.
He retired from Congress because his support for gun control, amnesty, and his hatred for Trump, tanked his poll numbers.
Many Republicans believed he was not loyal to American sovereignty.
He devoted himself to a globalist agenda and international institutions.
Republicans believe he wants to cash in after he retires and make big money as CNN or MSNBC’s next on-air Trump-hating “Republican.”
That’s why he helped the Democrats try and kill the Kavanaugh nomination through stalling.
Democrats began complaining that the FBI investigation would not dig into Kavanaugh’s college drinking or the farce allegations that Kavanaugh engaged in gang rapes.
Liberals will complain that the FBI investigation was not thorough enough and that Republicans cannot put Kavanaugh on the court with a cloud hanging over him.
They hope this will force Flake and pro-abortion RINOs Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins to delay the nomination past the midterms.
