Outgoing and unpopular Arizona Senator Jeff Flake spoke with Rod Rosenstein before announcing that he was delaying Judge Kavanaugh’s vote before the Senate for a week.
Flake’s move to align with Rosenstein sends a clear message that Deep State is now involved in the Supreme Court nomination process.
Arizona’s failing Senator Jeff Flake, who decided not to run for re-election, due to his unpopularity in the Grand Canyon State, hates President Trump.
His efforts to delay the Senate vote of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court will be his last act and one that not only negatively impacts the President, it also negatively impacts the country.
According to CBS, one of the last persons that Senator Flake spoke with before his announcement that he wanted another week before voting on good Judge Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court was none other than corrupt Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein –
Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake surprised his colleagues on both sides of the aisle when he called for a delay in the Senate floor vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation, after releasing a statement earlier that morning saying that he would vote to confirm Kavanaugh.
Flake, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, voted to advance Kavanaugh’s nomination for consideration by the full Senate on Friday, but said that he would not approve a motion to bring the nomination forward without an FBI investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh.
Flake was joined by Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski and Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin, both moderates, in calling for a week-long investigation. President Trump instructed the FBI to open an investigation into allegations against Kavanaugh on Friday.
Flake’s decision came after he spoke to senators of both parties and withstood pressure from some Republicans not to take such a step. As he considered his course of action, Flake also had a conversation with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who is in charge of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. And, at the top of his mind was the previous day’s testimony from Kavanaugh and Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault when they were both teenagers.
It’s no secret that Flake hates the President and the people in this great country who voted for him. After Flake said horrible things about President Trump, the President has gone on the offensive with Flake a few times on Twitter. Once when Flake suggested that he would run against President Trump in the next Presidential election, President Trump hammered Flake’s “low polling numbers” –
How could Jeff Flake, who is setting record low polling numbers in Arizona and was therefore humiliatingly forced out of his own Senate seat without even a fight (and who doesn’t have a clue), think about running for office, even a lower one, again? Let’s face it, he’s a Flake!

Flake hates Trump and his action yesterday was no surprise.
It’s really also no surprise that Flake spoke with corrupt and discredited DAG Rosenstein. Rosenstein has been running the corrupt Department of Justice basically since President Trump’s inauguration. He wrote the letter to support firing Comey and then created the Special Counsel Robert Mueller the day after the President turned Mueller down for the FBI opening.
The reason for the Special Counsel is still unknown because the law requires that the Special Counsel investigate a crime and no crime has been identified after over a year. The Mueller Special Counsel in unconstitutional on many levels. Rosenstein then signed a fake FISA warrant to spy on the President and recent allegations are that Rosenstein discussed wearing a wire when meeting with President at this same time.
Rosenstein’s DOJ is a joke with no indictments into the Obama Administration’s many crimes and none from investigations into Hillary Clinton’s emails, the pay-for-play Clinton Foundation, China spying on the US, Uranium One or any number of corrupt activities that took place over the past decade.
Rosenstein’s DOJ routinely ignores Congress’s requests for unredacted documents related to the Clinton Email scandal or the Russian hoax that the DOJ and FBI created to destroy President Trump. When documents are finally received and unredacted, the redactions prove to be related to covering up DOJ and FBI crimes or embarrassing actions of corruption and not national security.
The fact that Flake contacted Rosenstein (Redactenstein) should worry the entire country. Who in Rosenstein’s corrupt DOJ or FBI should be investigating anything related to the President?
Who at the FBI can be trusted at this time to run an independent investigation into anything related to @realDonaldTrump or his Supreme Court pick? Should we bring back Strzok, Page, Comey, McCabe, etc. What a mess @POTUS44 left this country in. #GodHelpUs https://t.co/0DZxNnj1Fx
