The confirmation of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh will be delayed one week to allow the FBI to investigate accusations of sexual assault leveled against the judge, The New York Times reports. The decision came after the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to advance Kavanaugh’s nomination, but only by agreeing to a last-minute demand by Sen. Jeff Flake, R- Arizona, to conduct a time-limited inquiry. Yesterday, the American Bar Association urged for a halt to the confirmation process pending an FBI investigation.
