Sen. Harris questions Judge Kavanaugh again on Mueller Investigation (C-SPAN)

US senator, risking punishment, releases Kavanaugh emails on race

The top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, Sen. The committee even notified Booker's office about the waiver before the hearing started. Cory Gardner, a Republican, met with Kavanaugh in July after he was nominated by Trump earlier that month.

After two marathon days questioning Brett Kavanaugh, senators were winding up his Supreme Court confirmation hearing Friday with legal experts making their cases for and against the judge who is likely to push the high court further to the right.

Despite stark differences, both seem to have accomplished what they needed to in the high-profile hearing.

She also grilled Kavanaugh on a series of issues important to progressives.

Harris, often mentioned as a possible 2020 presidential candidate, had pressed Kavanaugh on Wednesday, and the nominee had said he was unsure.

Women's March organized the protests with the Center for Popular Democracy, a left-learning nonprofit, and We Demand Justice, a group formed to oppose Trump's judicial nominations.

Sarsour told Reuters that her group's members accounted for 209 of the 212 arrests made Tuesday through Thursday, including almost all of the 177 arrests within the hearing room. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, to still be considered "committee confidential". Harris is new to Washington and eager to make a national name for herself. After the revelations of his confirmation hearings, the better question is whether he should be impeached from the federal judiciary.

Yale law school professor Akhil Reed Amar, a liberal testifying in support of Kavanaugh, had a message for Democratic senators: "Don't be mad". One of the documents, for instance, related to abortion. Kavanaugh said that he has made clear that a court order "that requires a president to do something or prohibits a president from doing something ... is the final word in our system". He said in a statement that Democrats "were able to shine a bright light - for the American people and Republican Senators to see - on Judge Kavanaugh's troubling views on women's rights, presidential power, and protections for people with pre-existing conditions".

Regarding your editorial "The Kavanaugh Hazing" (Sept. 4): The Democrats charge that Judge Brett Kavanaugh plans to elevate executive power over power of the legislature and judiciary and therefore will be inclined to protect President Trump if Robert Mueller's investigation concludes that Mr. Trump committed a crime. The query appeared to unnerve Kavanaugh.

"The way they're screaming and shouting, it's a disgrace to our country actually", Trump said Friday during a fundraiser in Fargo, North Dakota, for the GOP opponent to Democratic Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah.

Of his social-media commentators, he added: "I tried to reply to these people but they just don't listen". There is a lot of unhappiness in the umpiring community because no one is standing up for officials.

The committee held four tumultuous days of hearings last week on Kavanaugh's nomination. In questioning Thursday, he said more directly that he had no such conversations.

While Democrats and Republicans debated, dozens of anti-Kavanaugh protesters in the audience were arrested by Capitol Police after standing up and shouting while the senators were speaking. But that's not what people watching the hearing saw.

But those hearings, even with the wicked little dwarf, Roy Cohn, and the cunning little magician, Joseph Welch, were Shakespeare compared with the Kavanaugh hearings.

"Count me in, too", said Hawaii Sen. It's not to make this a very bad process.

"We have rules in the Senate, we have norms for decorum", Cornyn said. "Thank you", she said. The Democrats need to reflect seriously on the fact that norms are more than a cudgel to use against Republicans.

Feinstein was 40 when the 1973 decision came down, and she has told stories of college acquaintances who died seeking illegal abortions before the ruling.

It prompted some of Kavanaugh's only personal remarks on the issue.

She even taught me to say my Pop was a "statistician" rather than an economist because "economist" out of my young lips might sound like "Communist". "I don't live in a bubble".

If Collins votes yes, then he's likely confirmed. The person who most embarrassed himself was Sen. And despite holding a range of progressive positions, she's never been a darling of that wing of the party. For example, Kavanaugh called the Supreme Court's abortion decisions precedent on precedent. The president said while addressing supporters in Fargo North Dakota.
