the senate judiciary committee votes along party lines to send brett kavanaugh's supreme court nomination to the full senate. arizona senator jeff flake adds a major stipulation. >> i think it would be proper to delayed the for vote for up to, but not more than one week in order to let the fbi continue, to do an investigation limited in time and scope to the current allegations that are there. >> moments ago president trump spoke to reporters about yesterday's testimony regarding allegations of sexual misconduct against his supreme court nominee good afternoon. a vote to confirm supreme court nominee brett kavanaugh now advances to the full senate following a judiciary committee vote in the past hour.
jesse gary joins us to explain, it is now one statement made by a republican senator that leads that leaves the days ahead very uncertain. >> what a morning. peer politics on display at the capital. the deadline for the confirmation vote at 10:30 this morning. that time came and went. senators of both parties have broken into small groups to plan strategy ahead of that vote. democrats wanted an fbi investigation. republicans say the process dragged on long enough with no evidence of a crime and no witnesses. senator flake came back into the room with what appears to be a brokered a deal that both sides can live with ricky proposes -- >> i think we ought to do what we can to make sure that we do all due diligence with a nomination this important. i want to say that this committee has acted properly. the chairman has bent over backwards to do investigations from this committee. >> i have had a number of conversations with colleagues,
republicans and democrats, about how we could possibly get to further f.b.i. investigation to address some of the credible allegations doctor ford brought forward without extending the timeline. my republican colleagues, as i'm sure you heard, have accused democrats of simply trying to hold this open past the election. that is not my goal. my goal is to simply encourage friends and colleagues, pressing for the fbi to consider seriously the allegations that are before them. >> the process now and hands of president trump who would need to order the fbi to investigate the president says he will wait for the senate majority leader, mitch mcconnell, to make the official request . the nomination has been sent to the full floor, but there will not be a vote and tell the fbi one week investigation is completed. they are also questioning if the republicans can hold onto their majority to confirm kavanaugh.
two on the fence and both facing heavy pressure to vote no. denomination is expected to break along the party line as it did today. this continues for at least another week as the fbi investigates. we are live in the newsroom with ktvu fox2 news. president trump spoke about the kavanaugh hearing vote just a few moments after the hearing adjourned. >> i guess the boat was a positive note. there seems to be a delay. i will learn more about it as the day goes on. i just heard about it. >> the president made those remarks during the white house visit with the president of chile. he and the chilly president held talks on venezuela and the economy earlier president trump signed an $854 billion spending bill that keeps the federal government open through december 7 and averts a government shutdown. a lot to digest in dc. we welcome david levine, professor at uc hastings college of the law. why did senator flake vote in
favor of the nominee but also make the stipulation for the fbi investigation? >> a couple of days ago senator flake went to the floor of the senate before the hearings with doctor ford and judge kavanaugh showing he was clearly in anguish about this and about the doubts that were there. just really hurting. he is one of the moderates, republican, who everybody thought his butt was important kavanaugh was going to go through. he was clearly a doubt this morning. >> the why not vote no? >> he respects his republican colleagues. he is simply one who is in doubt. if we listened this morning several of the democratic senators said just give us a week. let the fbi investigate and let's see what there. we have not had a complete hearing of all of this. senator flake heard that. we were talking this morning about senator mccain and it seems that senator flake channeled a little bit of that
spirit to compromise. it looks like senator murkowski's going to go along, to say let's at least procedurally keep the train going and move it along and get it out of committee but leave time before the final vote on the senate floor to give the fbi time to investigate. if there's something there mcconnell can pull the nomination. if there is nothing there i bet judge kavanaugh will sell through 56, 58 votes in favor. this is a really, really smart senatorial compromise to keep things moving, but also make those who are worried that we have not heard enough about these very serious accusations to see whether we can learn more in a few days or not. >> is the fate of the fbi investigation light in president trump's hands? >> the initiation of the rest with the president the president has to direct the fbi to open up their background investigation. however, what is going to
happen now, you can see president trump being equivocal , he's not saying he won't do it. senator mcconnell and senator grassley are going to get on the phone to the president today. maybe they have already done it. and they are going to say if we don't open this up this nomination fails. what would like to do? your choice. mobley, the president will then say let's go forward and have the investigation. if judge kavanaugh has been telling the truth there will be nothing else there and the fbi won't find anything that is damaging to him and then he will get a strong positive vote and be able to go on the supreme court with the full backing of the senate if there's a problem, gosh, don't we want to know that before we put somebody on the united states supreme court for 30 or 35 years? >> senator jeff flake, a lot of democrats are happy. >> i think many of them in
their statements this morning, i think several of them were speaking directly to him. obviously, they had some meetings in the back room. that's the way these things take lace. what's on the camera is not necessarily what is going on behind the scenes. i really think the american people should applaud senator flake and senator murkowski for saying let's hit the pause button and see what's there. they deserve a lot of credit for acting like grown-up senators. >> that's quite the politics lesson this week. >> it sure is. >> thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you for having me. people from all around the country traveled to dc to protest brett kavanaugh's supreme court nomination. many opposed over sexual assault claims and hear his political beliefs may rate a dose may play a role in his supreme court nominations. people in the bay also planned a protest this afternoon. they're calling for a stop to the appointment of kavanaugh to the supreme court. one set this one protest will be tonight at the corner of market and powell street in san francisco. it is being held by a group called refused fascism.
