Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) said without the intervention of outgoing Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) that Brett Kavanaugh would be seated on the Supreme Court as an Associate Justice. Last week, Flake voted Kavanaugh out of committee under the stipulation an FBI investigation of limited scope take place.
Coons and Flake went on a media tour to tout their bipartisan agreement, including an appearance on this week's edition of 60 Minutes.
"I am grateful for the step that Senator Flake took last Friday," Coons said. "I'll remind you in the absence of his having done so, Judge Kavanaugh would have been confirmed and seated early this week and instead the FBI has spent several days interviewing witnesses and now according to reporting is compiling a report that will be delivered to the White House probably tonight and to the Senate probably tomorrow morning."
