Flake: Kavanaugh Probe No Good If It 'Just Gives Us More Cover'

It's his second appearance this year in the state that hosts the nation's first presidential primary election.

Separately, the Senate Judiciary Committee made public late on Sunday a previously unreleased interview with Kavanaugh from September 26, before a public hearing with Ford, in which he denied all the allegations against him and committee Democrats declined to ask questions, saying they felt the FBI should investigate the allegations.

Tom Rath, a veteran GOP operative in New Hampshire, said it is far too early to speculate about whether Mr. Flake could be a viable presidential contender, but said he is happy he is airing his views.

"They [the White House] can not say, "Oh hey, only interview the people in their neighborhood on one side of the street.' Or 'Only interview people from a certain period of their life, '" Sen".

Senator Susan Collins, among a handful of moderates who joined Republican Senator Jeff Flake, said in an email: "I am confident that the Federal Bureau of Investigation will follow up on any leads that result from the interviews".

Facing New Hampshire voters at Saint Anselm College, Flake repeatedly condemned the rise of "tribalism" shaping the Supreme Court debate and USA politics.

Just as Republicans on the Judiciary Committee were about to favorably recommend the confirmation of Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court on Friday, Flake had a change of heart.

"We certainly want the FBI to do a real investigation and we are working to make sure that that happens", Flake said at the Forbes "30 under 30" summit.

Mr. Flake came under fire from both parties during the Kavanaugh hearings, including from women who berated him in a Capitol Hill elevator after he announced he planned to vote in favor of moving the nomination to the full Senate. ".Democratic staffers asked the Republican majority staff to get on the phone with Counsel McGahn to discuss what should be the parameters, and they were told 'forget it'".

NY congressional candidate Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez warned Flake and other elected leaders that voters would end their careers should they support Trump's Supreme Court nominee.

Senate Republicans compiled the list of four witnesses and Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell shared it with the White House, the official and another source familiar with the matter told Reuters. "It is about uplifting the voices that have been victimized".

"I guess I want to say, 'Thank you, '" Walsh said. "That's your job to vet the nominee".

Stephen Duprey, a member of the Republican National Committee from New Hampshire, said Mr. Trump would be hard to beat.

"It's when we try and avoid compromise and take partisan advantage and do things because we have the numbers, especially when we are as terribly and closely divided as we are now that we begin to do serious damage to the country", he said.

"He is taking flak from the left for not taking enough of a stand, and I am like, 'What more do you want?'" he said of the Kavanaugh battle. "I think it's a very conservative party right now".

Sen. Mazie Hirono, a Democrat from Hawaii, said, "We're going to put a conspiracy theory believer on the court?" "I thought it was a bad moment in many different ways", he said. I hope to continue to fail my tribe.
