"I, for one, am waiting for the additional information that will come from the supplemental FBI investigation to inform me", Flake said. After he and accuser Christine Blasey Ford sat for hours of emotional testimony Thursday, the Senate Judiciary Committee on Friday voted to advance the nomination - but Flake, who sits on the committee, had changed his mind after announcing support for Kavanaugh that morning and called for a weeklong FBI investigation into the claims.
"Any nominee that lies to the committee, that is disqualifying", Flake told reporters after delivering a speech in New Hampshire, the state that hosts the nation's first presidential primary election. "And some of our colleagues said that 'we'll be back here one week from now".
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY said on the Senate floor that Kavanaugh's statements at the hearing show he harbors "deep partisan resentments" and that some of his answers to the committee weren't credible.

I have been a registered Democrat all my life but I never thought I'd be ashamed to say so. "That's your job to vet the nominee".
Sen. Mazie Hirono, a Democrat from Hawaii, said, "We're going to put a conspiracy theory believer on the court?" "In that moment, our impulse to tribalism was tearing the country apart".
"It has not been in my plans to run for president, but I have not ruled it out", Flake said at the time.
"I've been failing my tribe for some time now", he continued. "I think that the Republicans want to be reminded what it means to be a traditional, decent Republican". I hope to continue to fail my tribe.
