Republican Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona and Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont both criticized conservative media outlets like Fox News for smearing Jamal Khashoggi.
Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona is now in charge of Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court, and he knows it.
Flake knows that Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell need his vote in favor of Kavanaugh. He knows that if he votes “no” then Senators Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski are likely to vote “no” also and Kavanaugh’s nomination will never be approved.
This week’s FBI investigation into Brett Kavanaugh is happening only because of Arizona Republican Senator Jeff Flake and the two heroic women who pushed him into calling for it.
Flake warned everyone up front that he’s still planning to support Kavanaugh in the full Senate vote unless the FBI probe turns up something disqualifying.
Maria Gallagher may be the symbol of this year’s midterm elections.
It was Gallagher who confronted Arizona Senator Jeff Flake in an elevator last week and said to him:
“Don’t look away from me. Look at me and tell me that it doesn’t matter what happened to me, that you will let people like that go into the highest court of the land and tell everyone what they can do to their bodies.”
The conservative assault on women’s basic human rights just doesn’t stop.
And just as the GOP hired Arizona-based sex-crimes prosecutor Rachel Mitchell to serve as a kind of figleaf to cover the obscene nakedness of their shameful misogyny, we also see Republican-aligned women coming out in full force to play an identity-politics game geared toward masking the extreme anti-feminist ideology steeping the conservative political agenda.
Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska has been undecided on the fate of Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. On Tuesday she called for an FBI investigation into the sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh. According to her, such an investigation would “clear up all the questions” surrounding Trump’s Supreme Court nominee.
In a speech on the Senate floor, Republican Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona accused Donald of providing ‘aid and comfort’ to the enemy.

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) said that a few Republican Senators are ready to not approve any more Trump's judicial nominees until they get a vote on tariffs.
Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) told Republicans that they need to speak up more against Trump's lies, but the Arizona Senator again showed that his words are empty by offering no action.
Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona has made a name for himself by severely criticizing President Donald Trump, which is highly unusual considering they are from the same political party. The retiring senator made perhaps his harshest comments yet about Trump in his commencement address to Harvard Law School.
On Monday, we reported that a poll found that “the Arizona House special election between Democrat Dr. Hiral Tipirneni and her Republican opponent Debbie Lesko is in a statistical tie, with the Democrat holding a 1 point lead in a district that Trump carried by 21 points.”
Sen. Jeff Flake took to the Senate floor to deliver a speech blistering Trump's conspiracies and lies while warning Republicans of the destruction that they are enabling under this president.
Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) defended Democrats from Trump's claim that Democrats are not acting in good faith on DACA and the Dreamers.
The embrace of Trumpism may play well to the base in the short term, but it's a recipe for long-term disaster.
Roy Moore's days in politics are numbered, even if he does eke out a victory in Alabama.
“I couldn’t sleep at night having to embrace the president or condoning his behavior or being okay with some of his positions,” he said. “I just couldn’t do it — it was never in the cards.”
"What really matters are not words, it's the actions," Warren said, blasting GOP senators who speak out against Trump but fail to back up those words with meaningful action.
