Senator Flake faces emotional confrontation from survivors over his Kavanaugh vote

On Friday morning, Senator Jeff Flake finally announced that he'd vote to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Flake, who was previously undecided, was seen as one of the key deciding votes. The decision was particularly heartbreaking for a group of sexual assault survivors gathered near his office, who proceeded to confront him in the Senate elevator and reveal their own stories of abuse.

The highly emotional confrontation lasted approximately five minutes, during which Flake said almost nothing. At times, Flake's aide directed the survivors to the press office. Throughout the confrontation, the two survivors asked Flake to look at him. The Senator largely kept his head to the ground.

"I was sexually assaulted. Nobody believed me," one survivor revealed. "You're telling all women in America that they don't matter. They should just keep it to themselves."

A vote to confirm Kavanaugh is scheduled for early next week.
