Senate Judiciary Committee Holds Vote On Brett Kavanaugh Nomination

Sen. Jeff Flake (C) (R-AZ) speaks during a meeting of the Senate Judiciary Committee September 28, 2018 in Washington, DC. Flake was crucial in getting the committee to agree to an additional week of investigations into accusations of sexual assault against Kavanaugh before the full Senate votes. A day earlier the committee heard from Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, a California professor who has accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her during a party in 1982 when they were high school students in suburban Maryland.
