How Brett Kavanaugh will collide with a changing America

How Brett Kavanaugh will collide with a changing America”

The committee rushed to clear those documents so they would be available for Mr.

"And so I am convinced by that and some of the other documents provided that Brett Kavanaugh lied repeatedly under oath to the United States Senate about these matters", she said.

From what we know now, it appears the case could be made in a Congressional investigation that Mr. Kavanaugh committed perjury in his confirmation processes, this one and the earlier one that put him on the U.S. Court of Appeals. "As Judge Kavanaugh clarified at this morning's hearing, he was not expressing his personal views".

"Ultimately if you have a court that has a vision of America that is narrow, that is not reflective of the changing demographics and the needs of the country, then the Constitution becomes a stale document and the Supreme Court becomes viewed as partisan and political", Vanita Gupta, president and CEO of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, a coalition of civil rights groups opposing Kavanaugh's nomination, said in an interview Monday. He argued he was "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".

A controversial Democratic PAC, the Democratic Coalition, claimed over the weekend it had filed a perjury "complaint" against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

The Maine senator's support of Kavanaugh is seemingly in defiance of her own constituents, 49% of whom do not want her to confirm Kavanaugh.

As it turns out, Kavanaugh was emailed some of the information.

She accused the Senate Republican majority and Kavanaugh of "deliberately concealing his record from the American people". John McCain's successor John Kyl.

Friday was the final day of Senate hearings on the nominee.

He emphasized his belief that Roe v. Wade was "an important precedent of the Supreme Court" that has "been reaffirmed many times". "It's been reaffirmed many times", Kavanaugh said Thursday, as quoted by the Press-Herald.

Abortion advocates and Senate Democrats, however, weren't convinced by Kavanaugh's testimony, in which he also falsely described birth control pills as "abortion-inducing drugs". In 2005, when President George W. Bush nominated Harriet Miers, his former staff secretary and White House counsel (whose only apparent distinction was her blind loyalty as a partisan hack), howls of derision from both sides of the aisle ultimately forced the White House to withdraw the nomination.
