Flake on Kavanaugh: ‘Had I Been What I Fell Was Unjustly Accused, That’s Probably How I Would Have Responded as Well’

‘That’s why it was important to have the FBI do more investigating and have more information, not less’

EXCERPT:

FLAKE: "Well, those who heard Dr. Ford, everybody I think on my side of the aisle and the other side of the aisle said she offered compelling credible testimony. And then Brett Kavanaugh came on and made an impassioned, very raw defense and rebuttal to what was going on. And so — that was seen as very effective as well. I have said before, you know, some people were turned off by the rawness of it, the anger, but I said at the time, had I been what I fell was unjustly accused, that’s probably how I would have responded as well. So I don’t know how — I have said the day before on the floor of the Senate, we may not have any more certainty after the hearing. And that’s how I felt. There was a lot of doubt still. That’s why it was important to have the FBI do more investigating and have more information, not less."
