The Alaska Republican reportedly spoke with Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) before he called to delay the confirmation vote for a week so the FBI could investigate and coordinated her announcement with him.
MURKOWSKI tells me she spoke with Flake before he made his decision in Judiciary committee and they are in agreement. She says she supports having an FBI investigation that is “limited in scope”
