U.S. Senate Democrat Manchin joins Flake's call for FBI probe of Kavanaugh

Democratic US Senator Joe Manchin, often viewed as a possible swing vote on the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, on Friday supported Republican Senator Jeff Flake's call to delay voting so the FBI can conduct a background investigation.
"I applaud Senator Jeff Flake’s decision to rise above the partisan circus on display during this entire process," Manchin said in a statement. "It took courage to take a stand and call for a one-week FBI investigation to get to the bottom of the allegations against Judge Kavanaugh. This has been a partisan and divisive process."
