Sen. Thom Tillis reflects on week-long Kavanaugh hearing

Sen. Patrick Leahy and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Pointed questioning by Harris, a former California attorney general and San Francisco district attorney, produced some of Kavanaugh's few moments of hesitation or uncertainty. "It's been reaffirmed many times", Kavanaugh said Thursday, as quoted by the Press-Herald.

Brett Kavanaugh, if he taught us one thing during his often-rocky hearing last week, is not that dumb. Kavanaugh did not - and has not - said that all birth control counts as abortion-inducing drugs. A tweet from NARAL called Kavanaugh's comment "not only an anti-science lie, it's an anti-choice extremest phrase". Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh smiles as he is visited by young student athletes he coaches over the years, as he testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee on the third day of his confirmation hearing, on Ca.

Despite stark differences, both seem to have accomplished what they needed to in the high-profile hearing. She is up for re-election in 2020.

Who was following whose lead is open to debate. Social media and viral videos didn't exist for much of Feinstein's career - and her pragmatic politics weren't built for it.

"I might be a kid, but I am still an American", Corbin said.

But emails obtained by the Senate Judiciary Committee show that Kavanaugh had discussed the nomination process of Pryor with another colleague. Under questioning, Kavanaugh declined to say whether a president is subject to a subpoena or whether he can pardon himself. "The email does not contradict Judge Kavanaugh's statements that he believes Roe to be settled law and that he agrees it is important precedent".

In fact, many discussed Kavanaugh's interpretation of presidential power, what Ohio State University law professor Peter Shane said he anxious may lead to the "most executive power-indulgent Supreme Court since the end of World War II".

The judge left unanswered questions over how he would handle investigations of the executive branch and whether he would recuse himself if cases involving Trump under special counsel Robert Mueller's probe end up at the court. But when it comes to rooting out such hostility, she appears more than willing to take Kavanaugh at his word and steer clear of what may lie hidden among the weeds. Mike Lee, R-Utah. "Basically, she's still vetting the new information that's coming out", said her spokeswoman, Hannah Ray.

Clearly, as Senate Republicans scramble to vote Kavanaugh in before the Supreme Court begins its next session on October 1, Collins appears to be leaning toward confirmation.

Sarsour said she was the first person to shout out on day one of the hearing.

As for the event, Booker told KVUE it's a sign of what democrats need to do before November. John Cornyn of Texas, the No. 2 Senate Republican, blasted it as "mob rule" and "unlike anything I've seen before in a confirmation hearing". She stood up and raised her hands, where she had written "We Dissent". It's not to make this a very bad process.

One by one, the protesters, many wearing T-shirts that say "I am what's at stake", interrupt the proceedings by shouting slogans like "You're making a mockery of democracy!" or "Senators: Do your jobs and stop this hearing!"

"Cory publicly released those documents as well as other committee confidential documents today".

"I hope that the senator will reconsider his decision because no senator deserves to sit on this committee or serve in the Senate, in my view, if [they] decide to be a law unto themselves and willingly throws out the rules of the Senate and the determination of confidentiality and classification", said Cornyn.

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

"Since your nomination in July", Sasse said, "you've been accused of hating women, hating children, hating clean air, wanting dirty water". "I don't live in a bubble".

If approved, he would be expected to tilt the court's balance to the right. Embracing the middle of the road tends to be a more comfortable place for her.
