Flake Votes 'No,' Forcing Republicans to Cancel Confirmation of Judges Over Mueller

Jordan Kirkland - November 29th, 2018

One of President Donald Trump's greatest successes has been the vast amount of conservative nominees that he has nominated during his tenure as president. One would think that Republicans would be happy with these lists of well-qualified nominees. But there is one prominent GOP member that will vote against these judges to push their own agenda.

Late Wednesday, outgoing Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) continued to be a thorn in the side of President Donald Trump, forcing Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee to cancel a meeting in the process of confirming dozens of judges.

Crossing a new line, Flake threatened to vote against all judicial nominees unless he gets a vote on legislation to protect Robert Mueller.
