5:00 pm
committee meeting. >> reporter: that is right. to recommend judge cavanaugh for the senate. that boat went along party lines. all 11 republicans voted in favor, all 10 the crowds voted opposed. >> this country is being ripped apart. we need to make sure that we do due diligence. this was a critical vote in favor of judge cavanaugh with the understanding that he will not support the president's nominee in a full senate vote until the fbi further investigates the allegations of sexual misconduct. >> there is some difference of opinion among us of what the fbi will exist up. >> reporter: the senator shifts
5:01 pm
coming one day after a marathon. this morning, he had a contentious confrontation in the capital elevator. minutes before the vote, >> the american people deserve to have the facts followed up on. >> there was a broad agreement that this community has been too divided and to partisan. >> a full senate vote should last no longer than one week. >> someone has to explain this to trump. i guess that will be my job. >> i wanted to work out well for the country. if that happens, i am happy. >> because the senate has a lot of rules and procedures, it is going to take at least four working days for they can get to the full confirmation vote. meaning, it may not be until late last week -- next week. legal analyst david levine
5:02 pm
joins us to talk about this. walk us through the process. what is going to be happening over the next couple of days? >> there is a formal track, the senate will start going through the steps to enable them to have a vote. it will be on a slower schedule then senator mcconnell had been hoping for. he told the senate that he expected them to be working all weekend to get this done as quickly as possible. that is obviously going to be slow down. meanwhile, the fbi will be doing its best to follow any leads that are available at least for the credible accusations. we are not sure which ones will be counted for that. the fbi will probe a number of agencies. it will not take that much time. it is not that can -- complicated. >> i know this is kind of unknown because we have not reached next week, the president wants this investigation to be limited in scope. if the fbi delves into the past
5:03 pm
and ask questions, do you think it's possible that the vote could get delayed even further? >> it could. it is not what the president wants. it is what the senators that are on the fence want. they need to republicans to not be on board and judge cavanaugh's nomination will fail. if there are credible leads and they need more time, undoubtedly they will get it. it is not the president's call right now. the senators are in the driver seat right now. >> we heard judge cavanaugh repeat yesterday that the fbi investigation just reports on what happens. what was the judge trying to say in that case? what will happen after the fbi reports on what they find? >> until this morning, the republican position with judge cavanaugh on board was that there was no point in having
5:04 pm
further fbi investigation. they would not be reaching any conclusions. that is only halfway true. they do the background investigation. they do the gum shoe work. they then bring it to the decision- makers. that was not answering the key question. senator derman said judge cavanaugh, what do you want? judge cavanaugh had no answer to that. what he really wanted was no fbi investigation. this is a huge turnaround from a couple of hours ago. why do you think senator flake changed his mind? >> we know from a couple of days ago he had a very impassioned speech. he was so much in doubt. i think what happened is that his friends reached out during their speeches and said just
5:05 pm
give us a week we need some more time. i think he heard that. also, we do have the survivors that caught the senator in the elevator. that may have had something to do with it. i think it was the behind-the- scenes discussions away from the cameras. his real friends on the other side said how can we keep this moving and have due process and fill out the picture? they came up with a compromise and i think it was terrific. >> let me ask you one more question. we know that the immigrants said that the republicans did not invite brett kavanaugh 's friend from college. >> i believe that he has indicated that he would be willing to do that.
5:06 pm
he may have sent in a letter. no one has spoken to him. now, when the fbi pulls up in a big car and badges, can we talk to you? people will decide if they can talk. the fbi will try to talk to him. they will talk to other people, they will see what will happen. we will see what will happen. this is a big step in terms of bipartisanship. we do not want to get into real warfare. our legal analyst, professor david levine. >> if you missed judge kavanaugh's testimony or dr. ford 's testimony we have posted it on . a piece of equipment will be placed in the middle of a well- traveled roadway. the work could get underway. we have been following the latest developments.
