WASHINGTON, DC – SEPTEMBER 28: Members of the Senate Judiciary Committee listen as Sen. Jeff Flake (L) (R-AZ) speaks with Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) after Flake announced he is in favor of additional time in the Kavanaugh investigation September 28, 2018 in Washington, DC. Flake was crucial in getting the committee to agree to an additional week of investigations into accusations of sexual assault against Kavanaugh before the full Senate votes. A day earlier the committee heard from Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, a California professor who has accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her during a party in 1982 when they were high school students in suburban Maryland.
