Hannity Blasts Delay of Kavanaugh Vote: Jeff Flake ‘Flaked’ and The GOP ‘Caved’


On Friday night, Sean Hannity criticized Sen.Jeff Flake (R-AZ) and the Republican Party for delaying the vote to confirm Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

Earlier in the day, Flake became the ultimate decider among the Senate Judiciary Committee that would ultimately allow the Kavanaugh vote go to the Senate floor. However, while voting to move the nomination forward to full Senate vote, Flake called for an FBI investigation to look into the allegations made by Kavanaugh’s first accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.

President Donald Trump has since ordered the FBI to look into the allegation, delaying the final confirmation vote.

Well, that didn’t sit well with one particular opinion host.

“Today, Sen. Jeff Flake cast the deciding vote to push Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination out of the Judiciary Committee, but of course it came with his drama and a condition. A week-long delay so that the FBI could look into the allegations made by Professor Ford against Judge Kavanaugh,” Hannity said. “Of course, Republicans predictably caved and Flake flaked in a big way and just bought the Democrats more time to seek, search, destroy, and bludgeon, getting a delay under the guise of an FBI investigation. It was their number one goal, their number one talking point. Weren’t they paying attention? There’s a reason they said it again and again and again and again yesterday and today!”

The Fox News host then slammed Democrats for not calling for FBI investigations into the deputy DNC chair, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), as well as the allegations of former President Bill Clinton.
