Senate concludes Kavanaugh hearing; confirmation likely

Senate concludes Kavanaugh hearing; confirmation likely”

The allegation is one of several from Democrats who say Kavanaugh has not been completely forthcoming during his confirmation hearings, both for the federal bench years ago and during this week's Supreme Court hearings.

Hunter Lachance of Kennebunkport gets ready to testify Friday at Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing in Washington. President Trump has said he would select a Supreme Court nominee - a lifetime appointment - who would vote to overturn Roe vs. Wade.

Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., questions Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh before the Senate Judiciary Committee on the third day of his Supreme Court confirmation Thursday.

Kavanaugh completed two days of lengthy questioning by senators on the night of September 6, keeping his composure under intense questioning by Democrats. Collins is in the spotlight as a rare pro-abortion rights Republican who could vote "no" in a Senate where Republicans hold a slim 51-49 majority.

Brett Kavanaugh may or may not be racist, but Donald Trump's pick to be a Supreme Court justice has certainly shown he has racist tendencies, at the very least.

Pointing at Kavanaugh's table, she patronized, "So they're not in that book that you carry". "So consistent with judicial independence principles, I shouldn't comment on a potential case like that", the judge said.

The night before Kavanaugh's hearings, Bush's lawyer released another 42,000 pages of documentation, but they were all labeled committee confidential, meaning they couldn't be released to the public or discussed during hearings. The opinions expressed in this commentary are his own.

Much of the debate among senators focused more on the disclosure of documents than on Kavanaugh's record.

Hawaii Democrat Mazie Hirono released emails showing the judge questioning whether native Hawaiians should have access to the same programmes available to other indigenous groups. The ERLC sponsored the document.

When the question arose, Kavanaugh requested to see the email, which Booker responded to by asking him to instead answer the question.

Kavanaugh's record as an appellate judge has received favorable reviews from almost all pro-life and religious freedom advocates.

While Sen. Cory Booker's (D-New Jersey) "Spartacus moment" leak left much to be desired and actually said much more about a Kavanaugh colleague in the Bush White House than it did about Kavanaugh himself, another old email surfaced over the course of the day that people are regarding as a smoking gun.

Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont) brought this up again yesterday, and now there's a copy of the email circulating. Orrin Hatch of Utah, Kavanaugh said, "I don't recall any inappropriate conversations about the investigation".

In his opening statement September 4, the nominee said, "My judicial philosophy is straightforward. I'm an independent judge".

The American Bar Association has given the nominee a rating of "unanimously well-qualified".

The board claimed that the reason the Republican Party has not come forward with more detailed information on Kavanaugh is because they are afraid to uncover his truth to the world.

Also on Friday, Kennebunk High School sophomore Hunter Lachance, 15, testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about Kavanaugh's stance on air quality.

Hatch contrasted Kavanaugh's "levelheadedness and decency" to the "sick people" using the confirmation to attack people at the hearing to support Kavanaugh.
