Congressman Adam Schiff Weighs in on Kavanaugh Nomination Process
Today the Senate Judiciary Committee voted along party lines to advance Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination to the full Senate floor. In a dramatic move, Republican Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake voted yes, but said the FBI should have a week to investigate allegations brought by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford against Judge Kavanaugh. This comes just one day after a riveting hearing in which Ford and Kavanaugh both testified about an alleged sexual assault when they were in high school. We get reaction from Southern California congressman Adam Schiff (D-Burbank).
