Guest: McKay Coppins, Staff Writer, the Atlantic, Author, “The Wilderness” The bruising fight over Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh came to an end over the weekend with a confirmation vote of 50 to 48 in the Senate. Arizona Senator Jeff Flake voted for Kavanaugh. A week ago Flake’s support appeared in question, making him a target of intense lobbying from both Republicans and Democrats. Flake was the reason the confirmation stalled for a week to allow additional FBI investigation of sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh.
