Bennet Officially Announces Opposition To Brett Kavanaugh Nomination

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Friday that he had no doubt "whatsoever" that Kavanaugh would be confirmed.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hil on September 6.

Kavanaugh said no suspicions had been raised by the information he received from the Republican operative because most of what was discussed was commonly shared between the White House and Senate staff members.

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.

During the third day of his confirmation hearings, Kavanaugh was asked by Sen.

The Archives has said its review of some 1 million pages of Kavanaugh records the committee requested will not be fully available until the end of October.

Trump picked Kavanaugh, 53, to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, who announced his retirement in June. He said his favorite writing from the Federalist papers is Federalist No. 69, in which Alexander Hamilton details how the United States presidency is not a monarchy, he showed that he can list every name and age of the players on the girls basketball team he coached, and more.

Miranda, now a private attorney, has said he worked "closely" with Kavanaugh, who was associate White House counsel at the time, to prepare judicial nominees for their hearings.

This statement, however, did not do much to reassure those in favor of abortion rights, as activists continually, and loudly, protested Kavanaugh's nomination throughout the four days of hearings.

Hurricane Florence strengthens to a Category 3 storm
Residents of the entire Atlantic Coast, from New England to Florida, are being urged to monitor Florence and make preparations. Florence could bring a life-threatening coastal storm surge, and inland flooding as far north as Virginia, the NHC said.

Abortion was another main focus throughout the hearing, with Democrats portraying Kavanaugh as a judge who might vote to undercut or overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision establishing a constitutional right to abortion.

"Kavanaugh was very, very cautious to walk through Roe v. Wade as he saw it as a precedent of the court". "Judge Kavanaugh looks forward to addressing the Judiciary Committee in public hearings for the American people to view". Miranda said he may have shared stolen material with Kavanaugh, but never told him the material came from Democrats.

"It all seemed consistent with the usual kinds of discussions that happen and sometimes people do say things of 'here's what my boss is thinking, but don't share it around, '" Kavanaugh said.

Also on Friday, Kennebunk High School sophomore Hunter Lachance, 15, testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about Kavanaugh's stance on air quality.

"The fact we could be adding a justice to the court that has indicated he's not too sure terrified me", Beddard said.

Booker's threat to release the emails prompted committee chair John Cornyn of Texas to read a rule stating that Booker could be dismissed from the Senate if he did so.

Planned Parenthood and its political arm, Planned Parenthood Action Fund, also organized members from across the country, Dana Singiser, vice president for public policy and government affairs at Planned Parenthood, told CNN.

"This is about the closest I'll probably ever have in my life to an "I am Spartacus" moment", Booker said, referring to the 1960 film in which a gladiator played by Kirk Douglas leads a slave revolt against the ancient Roman Empire.

Lachance has asthma, and he said he is "concerned that the Supreme Court could make major decisions in the next few years that will cause air pollution in ME to increase if Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed".
