"I found out right around 9:30 [this morning] that he put out a statement that he was supporting Brett Kavanaugh, and then I saw him coming out of his office", Archila said. He noted he'd talked with other Democrats who had been "justifiably uncomfortable" moving forward, and that this proposal might help heal the country which is being "ripped apart".

After four solid minutes of this, the protesters seem to be nearly ready to let him go and then reporters begin asking, "Senator, do you care to respond to her complaints?"

Flake's decision is a victory for Senate Republican leaders working to push ahead with Kavanaugh's nomination despite Christine Blasey Ford's allegations against him on Thursday. Joe Manchin, one of the most vulnerable Democratic senators up for re-election in November. In fact, Flake voted against subpoenaing Judge on Friday.

In a scene that played out live on CNN, a sexual assault victim confronted Flake about his vote in the Senate elevator on Friday, demanding he look her in the eyes. I'll learn more about it as the day goes on. "I told the story of my sexual assault", one woman declared.

President Trump subsequently ordered the bureau to conduct the "supplemental" probe at the request of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

"Look at me when I'm talking to you, you're telling me that my assault does not matter and that you are going to let people who do these things into power". Trump also said Kavanaugh's testimony had been "incredible". "His testimony was powerful, honest, and riveting". She said she was on her way to talk with her family, because she anxious they were seeing what happened to her in the news.

But he said he hadn't thought at all about a replacement, "Not even a little bit".

"Yesterday, we heard compelling testimony from Dr. Ford, as well as a persuasive response from Judge Kavanaugh", Flake said in a statement. "That is what binds us to the rule of law", said Flake.

"I believe that the constitution's provisions of fairness and due process apply here as well".

Flake repeatedly thanked the women and said he needed to get to the hearing. Archilla added that she felt Flake "looked ashamed" and "had a hard time looking us in the face. We held open the elevator and I just started telling him why it was important and what had happened to me and why he should not let Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court", Maria Gallagher, 23, told The Daily Beast in an interview.

The fiery and emotional minutes-long exchange was caught by TV cameras and showed Flake barely responding with his head down at times. Friday's committee vote marks 81 days since Kavanaugh's nomination was announced on July 9.
