Jeff Flake Pushes For Real FBI Investigation Of Brett Kavanaugh Allegations



Republican U.S. Senator Jeff Flake said on Monday he wanted the FBI to conduct a real and fulsome investigation of assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, telling a summit hosted by Forbes the probe should not be just to provide political cover for voting to confirm Kavanaugh.

Last week, the U.S. Senate put the confirmation process for Kavanaugh on pause after Flake called for an FBI investigation into the allegations. His comments, made in Boston, were broadcast by cable news outlets. (Reporting by Lisa Lambert; Editing by David Alexander)
