Democrat protesters interrupt Kavanaugh hearing

NARAL volunteers write letters and postcards to senators and news outlets around the country protesting the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court

In a tweet in June, President Trump said he had "the absolute right to PARDON myself". The Supreme Court has never answered that question, and it is among the most important at Kavanaugh's hearing since Trump could face a subpoena in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation. "If we can't even have a nominee who can publicly say there is no right for 7.2 billion people to break into the world and demand an abortion - putting Roe aside - i dont [sic] know the objective of us engaging in this business", he said. "So sad to see!"

In his opening remarks, Grassley accused Democrats - who plotted strategy for the hearing on a conference call Monday - of colluding with protesters to disrupt the hearing.

"We can not possibly move forward".

Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin of IL asked Kavanaugh if he would seek a delay in his hearing so the paper trail could be vetted. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) while interrupting Grassley, referring to the September 3 release to the committee of 42,000 documents relating to the nominee's work with past administrations.

But one of the protesters took exception to Grassley's assertion, since, she said, she was calling out Democratic leaders such as Sen.

Republicans argue that those opinions are the most relevant records for determining a nominee's judicial philosophy and fitness to serve on the nation's highest court.

On Tuesday, the confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh began. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., who moved to adjourn.

We were especially troubled to learn from Mr. Burck's letter that the bulk of the withheld documents concern Judge Kavanaugh's involvement in "the selection and nomination of judicial candidates" by the Bush administration. Durbin and other Democrats have said that they felt misled by Kavanaugh's denial and said they hoped that full disclosure of the documents would reveal more about his role.

In his 2006 confirmation hearing for the federal appeals court, Kavanaugh said that "I was not involved and am not involved in the questions about the rules governing detention of combatants". They characterized the hearing as a "charade and mockery of our norms".

Kavanaugh sat, fingers intertwined, quietly staring ahead at the committee members as audience members screamed while being dragged out of the hearing room.

As protesters repeatedly interrupted the session, Republican Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) at one point Wednesday. "We shouldn't have to put up with this kind of stuff". The 76-year-old has been one of the Supreme Court nominee's champions, working to guide his nomination through the Senate. Democrats have attacked the records production on two fronts.

As America's families send their children back to school, the U.S. Senate has begun its contentious hearings on the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.

He gave a similar answer to Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy who asked whether a president could issue a pardon to himself or to someone else in exchange for promising not to testify against the president.

Democrats have mobilised heavily to prevent his confirmation.

And yesterday we didn't really get too much of a sense of Judge Kavanaugh, because all we had was a prepared statement by him and a lot of skirmishing about other things. The Supreme Court's new term begins October 1.

"I don't decide cases based on personal or policy preferences", he told the Senate panel.

"I revere the Constitution".

That's far more than for any previous Supreme Court nominee, but millions of pages have been withheld. "I will do equal right to the poor and to the rich", Kavanaugh said.

Liberals are concerned that Kavanaugh could provide a decisive fifth vote on the nine-justice court to overturn or weaken Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 case that legalized abortion nationwide.

"The fix is in", Brad Woodhouse, executive director of health care group Protect Our Care, said in a statement.

In a preview of the tough questions Kavanaugh will face Wednesday, Democratic senators said they would press the judge on his views about abortion, gun control, and executive power.
