WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican U.S. Senator Jeff Flake, who forced an FBI probe of sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, said on Friday he would vote in favor of the judge’s confirmation unless something big changes, MSNBC reported.

Flake voted earlier on Friday to advance Kavanaugh’s nomination to a final vote in the Senate. That vote could take place as early as Saturday.
