Panel sends Supreme Court pick Kavanaugh's nomination to full Senate

The Republican-led Senate Judiciary Committee on Friday voted to send the nomination of President Donald Trump's US Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh to the full Senate for consideration, with one hold-out Republican calling for an FBI probe into sexual assault allegations against the nominee before a final vote is held.
The panel moved the federal judge's nomination to the full Senate on a party-line vote of 11-10, with all Republicans in support, and all Democrats opposed.
The concerns expressed by Republican Senator Jeff Flake could imperil the nomination if an FBI investigation is not launched.
