Outgoing Arizona Senator Jeff Flake gave Democrats what they wanted most—more time.
-More time to fundraise off of the anti-Kavanaugh nomination movement.
-More time to dig up/make up further allegations against Kavanaugh.
-More time to threaten/harass/intimidate any members of the Senate who are thinking of supporting Kavanaugh.
-More time to collaborate with CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, etc…

What, if anything, can be done to stop the Deep State’s most recent and considerable push back against Kavanaugh’s confirmation remains to be seen but speculation is turning increasingly negative at this time.
