Brett Kavanaugh: Senate judiciary panel will vote this month

  • Sen. Harris pushes Kavanaugh on abortion

Democrats pointed, for example, to a 2003 email that had been marked "committee confidential" in which Kavanaugh wrote: "I am not sure that all legal scholars refer to Roe as the settled law of the land at the Supreme Court level since Court can always overrule its precedent, and three current Justices on the Court would do so". She stood up and raised her hands, where she had written "We Dissent".

At the time, Kavanaugh was associate counsel in the White House and was responsible for helping to vet judicial nominees who would appear before the Judiciary Committee.

A Judiciary Committee spokesperson confirmed to Fox News late Thursday that at least some of the emails Booker had released were still "committee confidential" when he published them hours earlier, suggesting Booker had in fact violated Senate rules, although Republicans had said earlier in the day that they had cleared numerous documents for public release on Wednesday night.

The documents released on Thursday dated from Kavanaugh's service in the White House under Republican President George W. Bush more than a decade ago.

Despite such criticism, Sarsour said, "the women who have been arrested over the last few days" helped generate "political will for Senate Democrats to show some moral courage".

"Like many of my brothers and sisters of color, I am not comforted by deputies with handguns, let alone assault rifles", she opined, which leads one to wonder whether Miss Eastmond and her media coaches have really thought through what would happen in, say, Chicago, if we disarmed the police.

The accusations will nearly certainly remain a fixture in the debate over Kavanaugh's nomination as it continues on the confirmation process this month, but there is little sign they will change any votes in the Senate.

There were "a lot of antics in the audience and some passion from various members of the Judiciary Committee but he kept his cool", McConnell added. The Archives produced the Starr files. Every single Democrat, along with both Collins and Murkowski, would have to vote against Kavanaugh for his nomination to fail.

Harris and Kavanaugh crossed swords one day earlier when she cornered him on a question about whether he had spoken about the Russian Federation probe or Mueller with anyone at the law firm of Trump's personal lawyer, Marc Kasowitz. Republicans later said the memos were already cleared for public dissemination.


Nan Aron, president of the Alliance for Justice, called it "jaw-dropping".

The White House on Friday welcomed the news of a set date for confirmation hearings.

"All Americans, left or right, Democratic and Republicans, should be outraged that we see Republicans rushing to confirm Brett Kavanaugh when the totality of his record, when his relative work product has not been revealed", Booker said.

The special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 elections, headed by former FBI Director Robert Mueller, was a significant focus of much of the confirmation hearings with Kavanaugh.

On a policy level, which could provide key insights into how he might rule should he be confirmed to the highest court in the USA, answers were mixed.

The issue has been on the minds of Democratic senators who have expressed concerns about Kavanaugh's views on executive branch powers. Because his career has largely been spent in public service, Kavanaugh has an unusually voluminous paper trail.

A congressional report blamed Miranda and another staffer for viewing the documents.

Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, center, and Sen. "They have no excuse to obstruct his prompt confirmation".
