Listen: FBI, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski discussed on Anderson Cooper 360
"We have learned that Danes will not be an attendance for that Saturday confirmation vote because he's attending is daughter's wedding that day in Montana, walking down the aisle with her and he will not be in attendance. So what does that mean Anderson that means tomorrow's vote so much riding on the Republican leaders know if they lose one Republican vote. All Democrats vote, no, then Danes won't be there on Saturday, and they won't have enough votes to confirm cavenaugh on Saturday. They may have to delay the vote. Intil potentially next week.

She said that the FBI investigation was thoroughly conducted a. She has said that he has done with a review. She said she had not made a decision yet. It would probably wait till tomorrow to announce that Jeff flake.

She was non-committal. She says, he's still. Reviewing this and Joe Manchin that red state democrat also noncommittal. He said, he's going to go back tomorrow morning to review this material further Anderson and just in terms of the FBI report, I'm clearly there are different narratives from Senate Democrats and Republicans today. Yeah, Democrats are saying, this is an incomplete report that were dozens of witnesses who needed to be interviewed and Republicans saying this was a thorough investigation. The seventh background investigation, he has gone through his public service.."
