Sen. Flake has seemingly forced a one-week delay on a vote by the full Senate; the Senate Judiciary Committee has voted Kavanaugh to the floor. Now we need to see if McConnell will honor this agreement. He doesn’t have to. There’s supposed to be an FBI investigation as part of this deal; let’s see if the WH agrees.


update 1: ABC is reporting that Trump is defering to Senate leadership on whether or not the investigation happens.

update 2: Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s backing Sen. Flake. McConnell no longer has the votes to confirm without bowing to Flake’s demands.
