Victim's father ‘Stop weaponizing Parkland’ in Kavanaugh hearing

GOP challengers hit Dems over tax votes McCain's former chief of staff considering Senate bid as Democrat Liberals should stop "whining" about Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing, says Buck Sexton MORE (D-N.Y.) at the time said Democrats were protesting Republicans' handling of Kavanaugh's nomination, which Democrats argue is being rushed through.

Sitting in the hearing, Kavanaugh blanched at that description of Roe v Wade, the landmark 1973 supreme court decision that effectively legalized abortion in the US.

Kavanaugh, an appeals court judge nominated for the Supreme Court by President Donald Trump, answered senators' questions on high-profile issues ranging from abortion to gun control to presidential power.

"As I've been saying from the beginning, this process has been a sham", Booker said in a statement on Thursday, the third day of Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings in the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, told Booker that "running for president", referring to the Democrat's 2020 aspirations, is no excuse for "flouting" the rules, warning it could lead to losing his Senate seat. "I knowingly violated the rules that were put forth", Booker said. Booker, a Democrat from New Jersey, did so at the risk of expulsion from the Senate. Mike Lee, a Republican from Utah, to release of some of the Bush-era documents.

On top of that, there is a large period time-from Kavanaugh's time as an associate White House counsel in the Bush administration, which he himself has called a "formative" job in shaping his career-from which very few records have been made available to the senators.

He publicly released 12 pages of emails sent by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh dealing with racial inequality. The Ninth Amendment, for example, says, "the enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people".

Yesterday, Senator Kamala Harris spent several minutes interrogating Kavanaugh on a similar point.

Also in responding to questions about the Roe v. Wade decision Kavanaugh said that he understands "how passionate and how deeply people feel about this issue" of abortion.

On March 23, 2003, Kavanaugh wrote an email about a proposed op-ed supporting Owen's nomination.

Kavanaugh clerked for Kozinski, and Kozinski introduced him during his 2006 confirmation hearing to be a judge.

Republican Orrin Hatch gave Kavanaugh the opportunity to follow-up on an exchange with Sen.

But Klobuchar suggested his interpretation, which differed from the rest of his peers on the DC Circuit, who were appointed by both Democrats and Republicans, seemed to be a pattern with Kavanaugh, in which he used Supreme Court precedents selectively to arrive at a particular outcome.

Protesters repeatedly interrupted the hearing by shouting messages opposing Kavanaugh.

"Have you had any conversation about Robert Mueller or his investigation with anyone at that firm?"

Pressured by Democrats with Trump on their minds during Wednesday's grueling session, the judge insisted that he fully embraced the importance of judicial independence.

"There was (is) a consent agreement to keep the hearing going, so no", said David Popp, a spokesman for McConnell, asked if they were trying to avoid the so-called two-hour rule.

"Can I ask you how long you are going to say the same thing three or four times?" he asked Booker.

The hearing's focus on Wednesday on presidential power came amid a widening probe by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into Russian meddling in the 2016 United States election and turmoil within the White House, clouding the presidency of Trump, who is working to get more conservative judges appointed to the federal courts. But because it had been deemed "committee confidential" after a review, Booker was not allowed to refer to it or ask Kavanaugh questions about it. Committee chairman Sen.
