    PHOENIX - A man accused of threatening to kidnap and kill a United States senator and his family has been indicted on federal charges in Arizona. The indictment filed Oct. 9 against James Dean Blevins doesn't fully identify the victim and instead refers to him as "United States Senator J.F."

    “I do hope that somebody does run in the primary against the president,” the Arizona senator told C-SPAN on Friday. “I think Republicans need to be reminded of what conservatism really is, and what it means to be decent.” . . . “I fear for the future of the party if we don’t remember who we really are,” he said.

    The Communist Party USA is involved in campaigning on behalf of U.S. Senate candidate Kyrsten Sinema, a Democrat from Arizona. According to Joelle Fishman, head of the Communist Party’s powerful Political Action Commission, the party has injected itself into races “in two states where a Republican seat can be flipped: AZ (Flake open), TX (Cruz).” During her term in the Arizona state legislature, for example, Sinema was a founder of the leftist Progressive Caucus. Sinema has helped lead numerous leftist national boards, including the Center for Progressive Leadership, Progressive States Network, and the Democratic Socialists of America-affiliated Progressive Democrats of...

    Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., said in a recent interview that he hopes somebody runs against President Trump in the 2020 election, and that Trump supporters' continued chants of "lock her up" — typically in reference to Hillary Clinton — are "disturbing." In his retirement interview with C-SPAN, Flake said the chants, which were sparked by Trump's campaign and have continued throughout his presidency, are more concerning than the controversial things Trump says.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is warning Republicans considering challenging President Donald Trump in 2020 that it would be “a waste of time.” The Kentucky Republican told The Associated Press in an interview Wednesday that that it would be “very, very difficult to unseat the president in the primary.” Republicans, such as retiring Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona, are considering challenging Trump in 2020. McConnell said that “would be a waste of time frankly. But the people who would be likely to challenge the president would not be coming to me for advice.”(continued)

    I accept that Murkowski will vote no on confirming Kavanaugh. As for Collins and Flake, I don't trust how they will vote on confirmation, no matter how they vote on cloture; believing them both to be snakes and willing to put Trump hatred above what is right as regards Kavanaugh himself.

    Sen. Jeff Flake (R., Ariz.) said that he plans to vote to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court "unless something big changes," according to the Associated Press. Earlier Friday, he voted yes on advancing the nominee in a procedural vote. The comments to reporters came as Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska indicated she would be a "no" vote this weekend on the nominee, after voting "no" on the procedural vote. “I believe he is a good man,” she said of the nominee, but “in my view, he’s not the best man for the court at this time."

    Members of the national organization UltraViolet Action and local groups are holding a midday rally on Thursday rally outside Flake’s Phoenix office to support the women who have accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault. Kavanaugh has denied the allegations. Thirty-three Arizona women who described themselves as survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence on Wednesday sent an open letter asking Flake to publicly commit to rejecting Kavanaugh’s nomination to the high court. They say if he doesn’t, he will send a “devastating message to millions of survivors that what happened to us doesn’t matter.”

    The Nebraska Republican gave an emotional speech on the Senate floor before returning to business as usual Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) gave a little performance on the Senate floor last night. As Sasse and his colleagues waited to receive the FBI’s report on its investigation into the sexual assault claims made against Brett Kavanaugh, the Republican from Nebraska took to the podium to talk about how friends of his have been raped, how the #MeToo movement is “a good thing” and how President Trump’s mockery of Christine Blasey Ford earlier this week was unacceptable. “We all know that the president...

    WASHINGTON — Two key undecided senators signaled Thursday that they are satisfied with the F.B.I.’s investigation into allegations of sexual assault against Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, and Senate Republican leaders were increasingly confident that he would be confirmed to the Supreme Court. Senators Jeff Flake of Arizona and Susan Collins of Maine did not say that they will vote for Judge Kavanaugh, President Trump’s second Supreme Court nominee. But after a closed-door briefing in which Republicans were told that no witnesses corroborated the accounts of Judge Kavanaugh’s main accusers, both made positive remarks. A yes vote from both would secure...

    Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) early Wednesday criticized President Trump for his mocking comments about Christine Blasey Ford, the first woman to accuse Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, calling Trump's remarks at a rally "kind of appalling." "There’s no time and no place for remarks like that," Flake said on NBC's "Today" when asked about Trump's comments late Tuesday in Mississipi.

    Jeff Flake, the squishy Senator from Arizona, is having himself a dilemma. He can't decide whether or not to support the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. I caught up with Flake briefly as he left the event, and asked if this meant he would not vote to confirm Kavanaugh, even if the FBI cleared him by week’s end. He appeared rattled, and his handlers rushed him into the stairwell. “I didn’t say that …” he stammered. “I wasn’t referring to him.” Flake seemed to be wavering in recent days over his willingness to confirm Kavanaugh. On Friday afternoon, mere hours after...

    As the Senate awaits the results of the FBI investigation into the Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Jeff Flake, one of the lawmakers who spurred the inquiry, criticized the judge Tuesday for his recent appearance in the upper chamber. Speaking with Jeffrey Rosen, the president of the National Constitution Center, and Democratic Senator Chris Coons at The Atlantic Festival on Tuesday morning, Flake called the judge’s interactions with lawmakers “sharp and partisan.” “We can’t have that on the Court,” said the Arizona senator, who didn’t elaborate on which interactions he was referring to.
