Sen. Flake says 'not a chance' he'd ask for FBI probe into Kavanaugh if he wanted reelection

A White House official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Reuters the White House had defined the parameters of the probe for the FBI and that the investigation would start with interviews with only four people.

Leaving the hearing on Friday, Senator Dick Durbin, a Democrat from IL, said it was his understanding there would be an FBI investigation of "the outstanding allegations, the three of them", but Republicans have not said whether that was their understanding as well.
One of those, Sen. "They should interview, but they should be guided by what the senators are looking for".
No matter what Mitchell thinks, many agree that Kavanaugh's behavior during the hearings was so volatile and disrespectful that his actions alone proved Dr. Ford's testimony was true.
"We see this horrible, horrible, radical group of Democrats".
President Trump took to Twitter on Saturday night to insist that he hadn't limited the FBI investigation. "I want to make the Senate happy".
The senator described Kavanaugh's response as "belligerent, aggressive, [and] angry", and noted that it made him wonder about Kavanaugh's suitability for the high court.
Kavanaugh faces sexual misconduct allegations, including those from Christine Blasey Ford, who testified last week that a drunken Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her while they were in high school. There's no medical way I can say that he was blacked out. I knew Brett at Yale because I was a classmate and a varsity basketball player and Brett enjoyed socializing with athletes. He also said he had heard that Swetnick isn't very credible.
"I just knew that we couldn't move forward, that I couldn't move forward, without hitting the pause button - because what I was seeing, experiencing in an elevator and watching it in committee and just thinking this is ripping our country apart", said Flake, seated beside friend and fellow committee member Coons.
President Donald Trump said Saturday the Federal Bureau of Investigation has "free rein" in the probe.
A statement from Schumer the same day urged the president "to have the FBI reopen the investigation for several days". Running for re-election is Democrat Joe Manchin, who both parties are wooing in the Kavanaugh confirmation fight. I liked beer. I still like beer.
Trump issued a fresh defense of Kavanaugh, praising him as "one of the most accomplished legal minds of our time" and saying he had suffered "the meanness, the anger" of Democrats.
Senate Democrats, Senate Republicans and Trump all got bad grades for handling the accusations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh.
Trump continued to lament the effect of the scrutiny on Kavanaugh's family. What his attractive children are going through... it's not describable.
He lashed again at Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) in July about her allegation, but she expressed her desire to remain anonymous. She alleged Kavanaugh forced her onto a bed, groped her, and tried to remove her clothes while he was heavily intoxicated, all while his friend Mark Judge watched. Americans "overwhelmingly believe [Ford] is honest", said Quinnipiac assistant director Tim Malloy, but "there is a very sharp divide between men and women on credibility".
In one of his more curious comments during the news conference, Trump suggested that a Democratic senator has problems with alcohol.
Judge refuted Ford's claim in a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, writing "I have no memory of this alleged incident". Ford believes it is important for Senators to hear directly from her about the sexual assault committed against her".
