"The Supreme Court is still... the last institution that most Americans have faith in", Flake said.
What she has said: "It is important to have a fair process for the sake of both Judge Kavanaugh and Dr. Ford, as well as the integrity of both the judicial branch and the Senate confirmation process".

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, an Iowa Republican, declined on Monday afternoon to provide more detail on what the FBI's investigation can cover.
The revised guidance is aimed at promoting an investigation that could tamp down Democratic criticism and satisfy on-the-fence Republicans about its thoroughness and fairness while also ensuring a fixed deadline to prevent the probe from becoming open-ended and spanning weeks. "The Senate will vote on Judge Kavanaugh here, on this floor, this week", McConnell told the chamber.
