Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), the man who delayed the final vote last week by asking for an FBI investigation, now has the results of that investigation. And he’s weighing in on what he thinks with two strong conclusions.
He said that he agreed with Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) that he thought the investigation was thorough and that there was no corroboration of the allegations.
From Daily Wire:
“I think Susan Collins was quoted saying it was very thorough but no new corroborative information came out of it. That’s accurate,” Flake told reporters after reviewing the FBI report on Thursday.
“I wanted this pause, we’ve had this pause. We’ve had the professionals, the FBI, determine — given the scope that we gave them, current credible allegations — to go and do their review which they’ve done,” Flake said.
“Thus far we’ve seen no new credible corroboration, no new corroboration at all,” he said.
Now while that is not a definitive yes, it’s very positive.
He had been a yes, prior to calling for the FBI investigation. And he may feel now that he has seen that, he’s assured himself there isn’t anything to it.
But they’re going to try to influence him before the final vote.
A group of protesters has gathered (again) outside Sen. Jeff Flake’s office in Phoenix. They’re chanting “No confirmation, without investigation” and “Hey hey, ho ho, Kavanaugh has got to go.” @azcentral pic.twitter.com/U9dWCAmXKc

Let’s hope he and the others take Sen. Chuck Grassley’s advice and “wipe the much from the mudslinging” away from their eyes, see clearly and vote “yes.”
