“The nominee will be reported to the floor,” said Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) Friday on live television, after the committee voted 11-10 to advance the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the floor for a full vote.

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) together with several Democrats argued for a short and “limited in scope” FBI investigation into the allegations lodged against Kavanaugh by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford — and, as of this moment, discussion is continuing on this issue.

Flake came up with a compromise by which he voted to forward the nomination of Kavanaugh — while also saying he did so with the understanding that Grassley would encourage Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to delay the final vote for a week to allow the FBI investigation.

Said President Donald Trump on Friday at approximately 2:20 p.m., “I think it will work out very well for the country … If that happens, I’m happy.”

The Senate Judiciary Committee “has to do what they think is right,” the president also said. “I will be totally reliant on what Sen. [Chuck] Grassley [the committee chairman] and the group decides to do.”

In the meantime, here’s what out there already:
