The Senate has received the FBI investigation and the results are showing Brett Kavanaugh is an innocent man of the fallacious allegations placed against him. Majority of Republican Senators have been clear they were voting for Brett Kavanaugh, but there were three Republicans that were on the fence.
The Three Republican Senators on the fence are Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, and Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz. However, it seems the FBI investigation may have been satisfactory enough for them to vote for Brett Kavanaugh on Saturday.
According to Fox News Collins, Murkowski, and Flake released statements on the FBI investigation results.
Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, who has stayed mum on her Kavanaugh stance, said Thursday that the bureau’s supplemental background probe “appears to be a very thorough investigation.”
Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, who also is considered a swing vote, was going to view the document Thursday afternoon. “I’m going to read it myself,” Murkowski said on her way to read the report for the first time. “I’m gonna go in with my eyes to it.”, who has stayed mum on her Kavanaugh stance, said Thursday that the bureau’s supplemental background probe “appears to be a very thorough investigation.”
And Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., who originally requested the FBI re-open its investigation into the claims leveled against Kavanaugh by Christine Blasey Ford, agreed.
“No new corroborative information came out of it,” Flake said on Capitol Hill Thursday. “Thus far, we’ve see no new credible corroboration—no new corroboration at all.”
