President Trump called on Senate leadership to “handle” Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation process Friday; saying he hopes “it all works out” for the country just moments after Sen. Jeff Flake requested a “one week” FBI investigation.
The President was speaking alongside the President of Chile at the White House when he was asked to comment on Flake’s 11th hour request from GOP leadership to delay the full vote for one week.

“I’m going to let the Senate handle that. They’ll make their decisions and they’ve been doing a good job. Very professional. I’m sure it will all be very good,” said the President. “I just want it to work out well for the country. If that happens, I’m happy.”
GRAHAM ON HANNITY: Democrats Should be ‘ASHAMED’ of Kavanaugh Hearings
Sen. Lindsey Graham stopped by ‘Hannity’ Thursday night to weigh-in on his powerful remarks before the Senate Judiciary Committee; saying he simply “told the truth” and Democratic lawmakers should be “ashamed’ of the hearing.
“I just told the truth. This is not about finding the truth between Dr. Ford and Brett Kavanaugh, it’s about delaying the hearing to get past the midterms,” said Graham.
“If we legitimize this, God help us all, because both sides can do this. To my friends on the other side: I would never have done this to one of your nominees. You should be ashamed… When Donald Trump wins, there are no rules, there are no boundaries,” he added.

The outspoken Kavanaugh-supporter spoke with reporters minutes after the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to advance the judge’s nomination, with Sen. Flake calling on GOP leadership to delay the vote “one week” to allow the FBI to probe allegations of sexual misconduct in the early 1980s.
