Pence Blasts Behavior at SCOTUS Hearing: Kavanaugh 'Distinguished Himself' Democrats 'Embarrassed Themselves'

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), interrupted Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) within seconds of the hearing beginning on Tuesday, setting the scene for a chaotic few days that included a number of theatrical displays - including a regular stream of protesters being dragged from the public gallery.

Thank you, Mr. President, for tweeting after the panel wound up for the day: "how mean, angry, and despicable the other side is" at these hearings.

Confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh have wrapped up, but Sen. That determination was made on August 30 by a unanimous decision, according to committee chair Paul Moxley, who is expected to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee to deliver a statement on Friday.

"But when it becomes all about the spectacle of Cory Booker, you think to yourself, 'I think I smell a phony here.' And that's what I think I smell here".

The only reason to have hearings is what he says on the record can later be used to impeach him if he offers an opinion that is directly contradictory to what he says.

Nominees generally decline to answer questions they deem could potentially come before the court. Given the full context, once can clearly see that Kavanaugh was telling the truth.

Musk, seemingly referencing former president Bill Clinton , went to Twitter to say that to say, "remember, I did not inhale". Before the podcast came to a close, Musk told Rogan that he had already received inquiries about the controversial toke.

When Thursday's questioning finally began, Sen. "It's possible but I don't believe so".

Kavanaugh had multiple opportunities to alleviate senators' concerns that he was picked precisely because he'd use his belief in executive power to protect Trump by saying he would recuse himself from any cases-criminal or civil-involving Trump. "How did the Pryor interview go?" he was asked in December, 2002. Senator Booker, by the way, was especially pathetic as he said he would risk expulsion from the Senate by leaking classified documents which, in fact, had actually been declassified.

Judge Kavanaugh proposed deleting that line, writing: "I am not sure that all legal scholars refer to Roe as the settled law of the land at the Supreme Court level since Court can always overrule its precedent, and three current Justices on the Court would do so".

Kavanaugh had served as Bush's staff secretary and his work in the White House has figured in the hearing.

"The basic explain in this case is that these DOT guidelines exhaust somewhat a good deal of legalisms and disguises to hide what in level of truth is a naked racial place of dwelling-aside", Kavanaugh wrote, as segment of his diagnosis that conservative participants of the Supreme Court would "realize as unheard of in temporary describe and rule accordingly".

In a footnote to a 2009 law review article, Kavanaugh wrote that "a serious constitutional question exists regarding whether a President can be criminally indicted and tried while in office".

Seven people have been injured in a knife attack in Paris
Of the seven wounded, four are in a critical condition, police said. "There were around 20 people chasing him". Police erected a cordon and closed off the street in the 19th arrondissement of the city after the incident.

CNN then reported that Beth Lynk, a Planned Parenthood spokeswoman, "acknowledged the error" of the smear, but insisted Kavanaugh had misrepresented the case.

An email Kavanaugh authored in 2003 and that was released by Democrats on the committee seemed to undermine Kavanaugh's stated view that Roe is settled law.

The Human Rights Campaign put out a long objection to Judge Kavanugh and cited his speeches.

Paul Callan is a CNN legal analyst, a former NY homicide prosecutor and of counsel to the NY law firm of Edelman & Edelman PC, focusing on wrongful conviction and civil rights cases.

Collins will likely milk this for all it's worth, but there isn't any angle for voting against Kavanaugh that didn't exist before his confirmation hearing. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska probably would have to both vote "no" for Kavanaugh to be blocked.
