Kavanaugh Nomination Reviewed by Committee

The committee expects to vote on Kavanaugh's nomination September 20, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., restated Friday that he expected to hold a confirmation vote before October 1. Some Democratic senators weren't reassured, pointing to mass school shootings committed with semi-automatic rifles. Sen. The panel's process resulted in hundreds of thousands of pages of Kavanaugh's documents being withheld as confidential or kept from release under presidential privilege by the Trump White House.

The emails Kavanaugh exchanged before his appointment to the court of appeals had not yet been released, but they are now.

"All Americans, left or right, Democratic and Republicans, should be outraged that we see Republicans rushing to confirm Brett Kavanaugh when the totality of his record, when his relative work product has not been revealed", Booker said.

Responding to Durbin, Kavanaugh said his 12 years as a judge demonstrate he is unafraid "to invalidate executive power when it violates the law".

"Even if Kavanaugh could claim that he didn't have any hint at the time he received the emails that these documents were of suspect provenance-which I personally find implausible-there is no reasonable way for him to assert honestly that he had no idea what they were after the revelation of the theft", Graves continued. And he cleared up any remaining doubt on the second day of his confirmation hearing - despite the fact that nearly no one noticed. "I don't think we want judges commenting on the latest political controversy", Kavanaugh said.

Federal judges, including U.S. Supreme Court Justices, can be impeached and removed from the judiciary for committing perjury. One of the consequences of electing Donald Trump as president was to enable him to appoint originalist judges so that we might actually get America back to some semblance of a constitutional republic, with real separation of powers.


Kavanaugh repeatedly has invoked the "Ginsburg rule", appealing to the desire to maintain the court's independence by declining to give any indication of how a nominee might rule on cases that could come before the court.

"No senator deserves to sit on this committee or serve in the Senate, in my view, if they decide to be a law unto themselves and willingly flout the rules of the Senate and the determination of confidentiality and classification". Today's times are different, they are undoubtedly decisive, and the gap of division competes in size with the Grand Canyon.

Two of the Democratic senators who have been most forceful in the Kavanaugh hearing, Booker and Kamala Harris, are considered potential 2020 presidential candidates. The documents he was allegedly willing to throw himself on his own sword over were released hours earlier and his office was made aware.

John Dean, the former White House counsel who was a key figure in the Watergate scandal that led to President Richard Nixon's 1974 resignation, told the committee Kavanaugh's past writings and remarks indicate his confirmation would create "the most pro-presidential powers Supreme Court in the modern era".

"When Justice Kennedy announced his retirement, I urged the president to appoint a consensus nominee who could earn broad bipartisan support in the Senate and the confidence of the American people", Bennet said July 9. The hearing is set to wrap up on Friday with testimony from outside witnesses.
