This is unbelievable!
Former Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake, who voted for the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, recently admitted that he regretted his decision and it would have been personally satisfying to vote against him.
According to the Washington Examiner, during an interview with the Washington Post, Flake stated, “I wish that [the investigation] could have started earlier and gone longer. And been more thorough. But it was not insignificant. You can’t make those public or nobody would ever submit themselves to appointments or elected office, but I wish the country could have read it.”
Flake then said, “There would have been nothing more satisfying to me than to deny the president.”
“Given his boorish and bullying behavior and remarks about Dr. Ford and whatnot, that would have been immensely satisfying,” Flake added. “But it would have, I thought, set a precedent that would be dangerous in the long term if we had an allegation that was uncorroborated — that, in and of itself, could sink a nomination. That’s territory that the Senate shouldn’t be in.”
