Shaheen, Hassan will vote against Kavanaugh

As the Senate continues its processing of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, it does so in the shadow of the last day of the Senate Judiciary Committee's hearing, with strikingly different depictions of the appeals court judge on display. He added that "under Judge Kavanaugh's recommendation, if a president shot someone in cold blood on Fifth Avenue, that president could not be prosecuted while in office".

"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. He noted that he grew up in the Washington area when there was a lot of gang and gun violence.

Asked by Democratic Senator Cory Booker on Wednesday whether he was picked because of an expectation of loyalty to Trump, Kavanaugh responded, "My only loyalty is to the Constitution". And Kavanaugh said essentially to the author that that was an overstatement.

He said the Republicans had changed the rules so that a simple majority of 51 senators is sufficient to confirm Kavanaugh's appointment, instead of the 66 votes previously required.

Both Moreland and Garnett stressed Kavanaugh's record as pointing to a desire to limit Congress' ability to support administrative agencies like the Environmental Protection Agency, the Food and Drug Administration, the Federal Trade Commission and the Federal Communications Commission to function independently of the executive branch.

North and SC and Virginia have already declared states of emergency , and officials have begun evacuations in North Carolina . Aides say they are applying lessons from last year's spate of storms to an expected repeat season of destruction.

"For these reasons, I will oppose his nomination", Bennett said.

Opponents of Kavanaugh's nomination pounced on his use of certain terms in the context of abortion and affirmative action to assert that he was sending a signal to conservatives that he is on their side, despite his measured rhetoric.

From releasing documents to hearing room theatrics, Vice President Mike Pence believes some Democrats "embarrassed themselves" with their many attempts to derail the confirmation hearing for Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

A controversial Democratic PAC, the Democratic Coalition, claimed over the weekend it had filed a perjury "complaint" against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. And part of that is giving a thumbs-up or thumbs-down on those precedents that could be involved in that. "That was - that's her word", he said in declining to say whether Kennedy's 2015 opinion extending same-sex marriage nationwide was correct.

"The Supreme Court didn't just reaffirm it in passing", the nominee said. Kagan, incidentally, was the dean at Harvard Law School who hired Kavanaugh to teach there.

Open men's final, Adams said the fines are up to the discretion of the grand slam administrator, not the USTA. She added: "He's never taken a game from a man because they said 'thief .' For me, it blows my mind".

The topics include his previous testimony from 2004 and 2006 about his involvement in judicial nominations, what he knew about controversial Bush-era programs and whether he received some documents apparently stolen in 2002 and 2003 from committee Democrats.

Most Senate Democrats already declared their opposition to Kavanaugh prior to the hearings, and the confirmation vote is expected to be strictly partisan.

Judge Kavanaugh has served 12 years as a judge and has decided more than three hundred cases.

Kavanaugh called Garland "a great judge - a great chief judge, and he's very careful, and very hardworking, and we work well together".

That coming collision was vividly previewed during last week's hearings, particularly when Kavanaugh faced close questioning from Sens.
