Report: Flake wasnt pressured, he masterminded the Kavanaugh delay

If true this Guy must be Censured

The “Flake-led rebellion” had “been building for nearly two weeks”

According to a report published by Politico, Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) chose to appear pressured when, in fact, he masterminded the latest Kavanaugh delay. His subsequent media statements about his motivations and his media appearances in light of this report suggest Flake’s true motivations are far less pure than he would have us believe.

Flake’s focus on optics, on his raw ambition (for 2020?), and on the kind of “swamp creature” political maneuvering surrounding this planned reversal paints for the American people a hideous and disturbing portrait of the Arizona senator.

On Friday, Flake told the Atlantic that he insisted on the seventh FBI investigation into Judge Brett Kavanaugh because he was trying to save two institutions, the Senate and the Supreme Court. During this interview, he also explained that he was deeply moved by Chris Coons’ pleas and decided that it was up to him, Jeff Flake, to “bring a little unity,” to stop our country “coming apart on this.” A move that apparently brought Coons near tears.

To follow up on his preening media tour, Flake showed up on 60 Minutes with Coons in tow. CBS is revealing parts of this interview leading up to its Sunday night airing.

Bert (Flake) and Ernie (Coons) together again

Senators Jeff Flake and Chris Coons appeared Saturday together at New York City’s Global Citizens Festival, a concert held every year in Central Park during the United Nations General Assembly.

On Friday, both senators completed a behind-closed-doors conversation that ended up with Flake changing direction on his previously stated support for President Trump’s SCOTUS pick and the added condition of a week-long FBI investigation into sexual assault allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

“Hi, global citizen. I’m Chris Coons, a Democrat from Delaware,” Coons said.

“And I’m Jeff Flake, a Republican from Arizona,” Flake added.

Coons then lauded their “personal relationship” that made the “compromise that prevailed yesterday possible.”

“So we’re here to support bipartisan leadership on foreign aid,” the Arizona senator added.

“Thanks to all of you global citizens who have contacted us this year, you have texted, you have called, you have touched our hearts. Keep calling,” Flake said. (RELATED: Ingraham: Flake Sounded Like An Out-Of-Touch Narcissist)

After Coons’ next line, Flake said, “So feel free to join me in an elevator anytime,” referring to the protesters who confronted him on Friday.

The republicans need to shun this moron

ObamaPhone program may have wasted $336 million

The Lifeline telecom subsidy — more commonly called “Obamaphone” — program may have wasted $336 million of its 2017 budget, according to a federal audit.

A Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Inspector General released a report indicating an eight-fold increase of improper or fraudulent payments in the program from 2016 to 2017.

The FCC’s IG conducted the investigation in response to a May 2017 Government Accountability Office (GAO) report that found risks of fraud and wasted tax dollars in the Lifeline program. After the GAO report and a stricter 2017 audit, the Lifeline program was seen to have wasted nearly 22 percent, compared to less than three percent from the previous year.

Additionally, the GAO reported that 69 percent of Lifeline beneficiaries’ eligibility for the program had not been verified.

Know who needs an Investigation?...The Democrat Party

Weak Republicans deprived us of a victory, even if Kavanaugh eventually is confirmed

We’ve been humiliated by seeing our representatives forced to retreat, apologize, capitulate and crawl past the finish line.

Jeff Flake is getting the blame for the further delay in the Senate confirmation floor vote for Brett Kavanaugh.

After announcing he would vote in favor of Kavanaugh at the Judiciary Committee, without any conditions, Flake was pulled aside in the Senate hearing anteroom and aggressively lobbied by Democrats. It was an unusual scene, with Chuck Grassley and other Republican Senators waiting for Flake to emerge so that a vote could be taken.

What happened out of sight was that Democrats prevailed on Flake to condition his vote on a supplemental FBI background investigation, to take up to a week.

It was not clear, and still is not clear, what the scope of that investigation would be. Clearly, it includes the claims of Christine Ford that were the subject of yesterday’s hearing and extensive Judiciary Committee investigation. But does it also include the completely uncorroborated claims of Deborah Ramirez and the bizarre claims of Julie Swetnick?
