Grassley Blasts Out Kavanaugh Docs As Dems Release Emails

A group of protesters bearing a message as stark as their red and white costumes are opposing Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation hearings. Mike Lee, Utah Republican, though, said that the referenced email had been deemed "confidential" by the committee, which means it can not be released or used to question a nominee. Cory Booker, D-N.J., about the circumstances in which government can and cannot use race-conscious measures to address past discrimination. The documents were labeled "committee confidential" which meant that they could not be made public or discussed in public.

"Just asking questions from a very journalistic point of view triggered them so much", said Kirk, arguing that the "nonsense" happening on college campuses is spreading.

"No one is above the law", including those in the executive branch, he told the Senate Judiciary Committee. "I did not take any constitutional position on the issues you're raising", Kavanaugh said. The firm in question was founded by Marc Kasowitz, who has represented Trump. She said Kavanaugh has concluded that banning assault weapons is unconstitutional because they haven't historically been banned, accusing his reasoning of being "far outside the mainstream of political thoughts".

Trump said he listened to a few minutes of Wednesday's hearing, and concluded that Kavanaugh displayed an "outstanding intellect". Democrats lack the votes to block confirmation, but have been pressing Kavanaugh for his views on abortion rights, gun control and other issues.

A Yale University graduate, in the 1990s he led an investigation into the suicide of Bill Clinton aide Vince Foster, who was linked to the Whitewater controversy that began as a probe into the presidential couple's real estate investments. "It's also clear from the public emails that you had reason to believe materials were obtained inappropriately at the time".

Brett Kavanaugh’s Third Day of Supreme Court Confirmation Hearings
The most likely outcome of this week's hearings is a vote along party lines to send Kavanaugh's nomination to the full Senate. Democrats are expected to question Kavanaugh on his views on previous Supreme Court decisions, including Roe v.


Judge Kavanaugh was considering a draft opinion piece that supporters of one of Mr. The 53-year-old appellate judge answered cautiously when asked about most of those matters, refusing an invitation from Democratic Sen.

There is a long history of heated fights over US Supreme Court nominations.

He told the Senate Judiciary Committee he considered it "settled as a precedent of the Supreme Court".

"I don't want to go back" to those days, she says.

Senators are especially likely to grill Kavanaugh on his dissent from a ruling by the D.C. Circuit last October that an undocumented immigrant teen was entitled to seek an abortion. Kavanaugh would have denied her immediate access to an abortion, even after she received permission from a Texas judge.

He also declined to say whether he would recuse himself from cases involving the civil or criminal liability of President Trump. Kavanaugh said maintaining judicial independence "requires me to avoid commenting on current events".

"Bring the charges", the New Jersey senator demanded.

In an email written when he was a lawyer in the White House under President George W. Bush, Kavanaugh gave advice on how to amend a document that characterized Roe v. Wade as "the settled law of the land".

Republicans hold a one-vote Senate majority. "I am deeply honored to be nominated to fill his seat on the Supreme Court", Kavanaugh said as Trump announced his nomination at the White House July 9. "I openly invite and accept the consequences of my team releasing that email right now".

"If confirmed to the Supreme Court I will keep an open mind in every case".
