Full Republican support for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is increasingly likely. Arizona's Jeff Flake and Maine's Susan Collins said Kavanaugh's follow-up FBI investigation appears to have been very thorough. Flake said the probe did not corroborate allegations of sexual assault against Kavanaugh. Democrats argued that the probe was far too limited in scope. Collins has been on the fence about Kavanaugh. Flake came out in support of the federal judge last week but insisted on a pause for the follow-up FBI background investigation. Republicans hold a slim, 51-49 majority in the Senate and cannot afford defections in Kavanaugh's confirmation vote.
