UPDATE: 2:15 p.m. ET

Sen. Flake Calls for Delay of Kavanaugh Senate Floor Vote

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who has a deciding vote, said he would not support final confirmation until the F.B.I. investigates accusations of sexual assault against Brett Kavanaugh.

"I have been speaking with a number of people on the other side," Flake said to the Senate Judiciary Committee. "We've had conversations ongoing for a while with regard to making sure that we do due diligence here. I think it would be proper to delay the floor vote for up to, but not more than, one week, in order for the FBI to do an investigation limited in time and scope to the current allegations that are there. And limited in time to no more than one week.

"I will vote to advance the bill to the floor with that understanding."

The committee voted to send the Kavanaugh nomination to the floor, 11-10.

But, it's unclear if Republican leaders — or President Trump — will support Flake's call for the investigation.

UPDATE: 1:47 p.m. ET

The Senate Judiciary Committee vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh scheduled for 1:30 p.m. ET has not yet occurred.

According to CNN, discussions are taking place outside of the hearing room about a potential FBI investigation into Ford's claims, and no more than a week delay for the nomination vote.

ORIGINAL STORY

Despite the explosive testimony of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford against President Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Thursday, and the fact there hasn't been an FBI investigation into her claims of sexual assault, Republicans are steps closer to getting him confirmed.

Kevin Jackson, a Black Fox News contributor, was fired for his Twitter comments during the hearings about the women who accused Kavanaugh of assault and misconduct.

"#ChristineBlaseyFord academic problems came from her PROMISCUITY!" he wrote on Twitter during the Senate appearance. "Dang girl stop opening your legs and OPEN A BOOK!"
