Supreme Court nominee steers clear of Trump criticism

Sen. Kamala Harris of California asked Kavanaugh late Wednesday if he had spoken about the Russian Federation investigation with anyone at the law firm founded by Marc Kasowitz, who has represented Trump. The hearings have been disrupted scores of times by disgruntled Leftists, marred by idiotic rumors regarding supposed white supremacist hand signals and refused handshakes, and finally run into the ground by Democrats intent on launching 2020 presidential campaigns on the back of ridiculous grandstanding. Senator Mazie Hirono (D-HI) also released committee confidential documents Thursday morning, writing on Twitter that "they show that Judge Kavanaugh wrongly believes that Native Hawaiian programs are Constitutionally questionable".

But unless she or another Democrat reveals some damning evidence about improper conversations with someone at the firm, Kasowitz Benson & Torres, it appears the panel is set to send the nomination to the Senate floor on a 11-10 party line vote, setting up his confirmation and taking the ninth seat on the highest court in the land. This is, to be a sure, a reasonable answer. "How can you not remember whether or not you had a conversation about Robert Mueller or his investigation with anyone at that law firm?" He asked for a specific name saying he was "happy to be refreshed". The confidential documents that have been released so far at Democrats' request are either innocuous or directly relevant to how Kavanaugh would think through cases as a Supreme Court justice.

"You've been speaking for nearly eight hours to this committee about all sorts of things you remember", Harris said.

Lee broke in to say law firms "abound" in Washington and are full of people.

However, in a March 2003 email Senate Republicans have deemed "committee confidential" and therefore concealed from the public eye, Kavanaugh suggested the landmark decision is not in fact settled law.

"I know that we still have at least a day and half of hearings, so I figure there's going to be more to listen to", Murkowski said. "I've never given anyone any hints, forecasts, previews, winks, nothing about my view as a judge or how I would rule as a judge or anything related to that", he said.

Pressured by Democrats with Trump on their minds during Wednesday's grueling session, the judge insisted that he fully embraced the importance of judicial independence.

Stay tuned for when Harris gets her second round of questions sometime Thursday night.


Mr. Booker quoted from the emails during his questioning of the judge.

Kavanaugh has referred to Roe as "settled law" and said that other cases followed the precedent but declined to comment on how he could rule in any future cases.

On abortion, Kavanaugh noted that Roe has been affirmed "many times". "The stolen material detailed Democrats" efforts to oppose President George W. Bush's judicial nominees.

"The way we stand up is by deciding cases and controversies independently without fear or favor", Kavanaugh said. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., asked him how he wants to be remembered.

"Good husband", the nominee said amid laughter in the room.

At another point, Sen. And so I want to hear him talk about that, and how we know when things are wrong why when Brown V. Board in 1954, which is indeed one of the most important moments in not just Supreme Court history, but American history, why you would know that 58 years after Plessy, it was wrong and should be overturned, and other ones sound like they're sacrosanct.

After answering "with other judges I know", Kavanaugh was asked if he had discussed the probe with anyone who works at Kasowitz Benson Torres, the NY law firm founded by President Donald Trump's personal attorney Marc Kasowitz.
