Brett Kavanaugh’s Third Day of Supreme Court Confirmation Hearings

Brett Kavanaugh’s Third Day of Supreme Court Confirmation Hearings

A tense exchange between Sen. The Supreme Court would have to rule on that question to settle the matter for good. The New York Times had earlier obtained some of the documents relating to emails Kavanaugh wrote touching upon abortion and race issues when he served in the Bush White House. "So sad to see!"

Capitol police arrested 70 people for outbursts and disruptions during Kavanaugh's hearing Tuesday - and the protests continued during his testimony Wednesday.

Moments after Grassley opened the session, Democrats decried the withholding of the documents and asked to have the proceedings adjourned. Security personnel removed dozens of demonstrators from the room.

Kavanaugh, a judge on the US Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, supported a petition from the broadband industry for the full court to rehear the case that upheld the FCC's right to impose utility-style regulations on internet services. "But we're also able to conduct our hearing the way it should be conducted". Mike Lee, R-Utah, to release of some of the Bush-era documents.

In August, Grassley told reporters that the confirmation hearing would last a week at the least, adding that the confirmation process will take as long as his colleagues need. Democratic senators must put an end to this secretive sham.

Grassley noted that despite his staff being available around the clock to help Democrats access records, not a single Democratic senator showed up.

The conflict arose after Mr. Booker probed Judge Kavanaugh Wednesday night over his thoughts on race in America - and demanded he explain 2002 emails where he said the Supreme Court nominee discussed racial profiling.

One of several red-state Democrats watched as potentially voting for Kavanaugh, Sen.

It was also so-called progressive pols such as U.S. Sen.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh said during his confirmation hearing on Wednesday that Roe v. Wade is "important precedent" that as been "reaffirmed many times".

Senate Democrats have vowed a fierce fight to block him.

They are concerned that Kavanaugh will push the court to the right on abortion, guns and other issues, and that he will side with President Trump in cases stemming from special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible ties to the Trump campaign.

The two red-state Democrats, who face tough re-election battles this fall, cautioned that they would wait until this week's hearings to conclude to ultimately make a decision.

Irked by a protester who interrupted him, Sen.

Kavanaugh: I think Congress has substantial power of course in this area that you're discussing and I would want to hear more about how Rice applies. But the Democratic frustrations that boiled over on September 4 had been simmering for more than two years.

Democrats are expected to question Kavanaugh on his views on previous Supreme Court decisions, including Roe v. Wade and Citizens United, but he said "nominee precedent" weighs heavily on him as he answers questions.

But Feinstein, raising doubts that the nominee's position would hold if he came to rule on abortion from the Supreme Court bench said: "When the subject comes up, the person says we will follow stare decisis, and then they get confirmed and they don't", she said. She later abandoned the effort and moved on to other topics.

The most likely outcome of this week's hearings is a vote along party lines to send Kavanaugh's nomination to the full Senate. The court begins its next term in October.

Tillis said, "We have had almost every member in the minority on this committee either publicly state or participate in a press conference that they were going to vote against Judge Kavanaugh, with majority announcing it within the first 24 hours".
