A Republican-led committee approved President Donald Trump's nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court Friday but in a dramatic development Republican Senator Jeff Flake called for an FBI probe into sexual misconduct allegations against the judge before a final Senate vote. The intervention of Flake, a moderate, means a final Senate vote on the nomination could be delayed for up to a week so the possible FBI probe can be completed, if Republican Senate leaders agree to his demand. "That's what you're telling all women in America that they don't matter, they should just keep it to themselves," one of the protesters shouted at Flake in an exchange aired by CNN.After talking privately with his colleagues, Flake said he would vote to advance the nomination to the full Senate only if the FBI were to probe the allegations against the judge.
