Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who voted yes to advance Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Senate floor, asked the Senate Judiciary Committee to delay the vote for one week so the FBI can investigate.

Why it matters: Currently, the numbers stand 49 in support for Kavanaugh and 47 opposed. But there are still key swing votes from Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Susan Collins (R-Maine), Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.) and Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) in the balance. Kavanaugh's nomination now goes to the Senate floor for a full vote, but it is uncertain when the vote will take place.

Trump whisked out of press briefing after shooting outside White House

President Trump was escorted out of a coronavirus press briefing by a Secret Service agent on Monday evening after law enforcement reportedly shot an armed suspect outside of the White House.

What's new: The 51-year-old suspect approached a uniformed Secret Service officer on the corner of 17th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue NW, near the White House, and said he had a weapon, the agency alleged in a statement late Monday. He "ran aggressively towards the officer, and in a drawing motion, withdrew the object from his clothing."

Protesters and security forces have been clashing across Belarus overnight in a second night of protests that has left at least one person dead, hundreds injured and thousands arrested.

Why it matters: Sunday’s rigged presidential elections have yielded political uncertainty unlike any seen in Aleksander Lukashenko’s 26-year tenure. After claiming an implausible 80% of the vote, Lukashenko is using every tool in the authoritarian arsenal to maintain his grip on power.
