If you thought everybody hated Jeff Flake before, check out what they’re saying now that the lame-duck Arizona senator is blocking judicial confirmations until he gets a floor vote on the bipartisan “Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act,” which passed the Senate Judiciary Committee (upon which Flake sits) 14–7 in April but has been stymied since by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Jeff Flake’s Sad Exit,” runs the headline on The Wall Street Journal‘s editorial. The paper’s argument: “Flake’s stunt will have zero effect on President Trump or Mr. Mueller, and he’s compromising a substantive principle to make a futile political gesture. Mr. Flake is hurting the cause of confirming conservative judges who would enforce the Constitution in the name of a bill that is unconstitutional.”
