Democratic Senators Send Fundraising Emails During Kavanaugh Hearing

Fred Guttenberg the father of Jamie Guttenberg who was killed in the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland Fla. left attempts to shake hands with President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh right as he leaves for a

"Judge Kavanaugh is a decent man and should be confirmed".

Of particular concern to many - including protesters who came dressed as characters from the distopian novel "The Handmaid's Tale" - is the fact Kavanaugh's appointment could endanger Roe v Wade - the Supreme Court ruling giving women access to abortion.

In an interview on Tuesday afternoon, Guttenberg, who had been introduced at the hearing earlier as a guest of Sen.

Ahead of the release of an explosive new book about the White House from Washington Post associate editor Bob Woodward, President Trump threw his staff under the bus, complaining that they did not tell him that Woodward had requested an interview. Does it matter, though, how contentious the hearings are if Democrats don't have the ability to block a Kavanaugh nomination?

With Senator John McCain's death, the Republican Senate majority shrank to 50-49, but McCain's replacement is likely be seated before a final vote on Kavanaugh, restoring the majority to 51-49 and providing the votes needed for confirmation.

Protesters took turns yelling as senators spoke, shouting "This is a travesty of justice", "Our democracy is broken" and "Vote no on Kavanaugh".

After the hearing this week, lawmakers will vote on whether to approve Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court.

Kavanaugh said he has been a "pro-law judge" who does not seek a pre-ordained outcome, and who would bring his impartiality to the nation's high court.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump's nominee to be the ninth justice on the U.S. Supreme Court, says his philosophy is straightforward: a judge must interpret the law, not make the law.

Democrats have accused Senate Republican leaders of stealing a Supreme Court seat when they refused to consider Merrick Garland, Democratic former President Barack Obama's nominee to the high court, in 2016.

Kavanaugh worked in key White House positions when George W. Bush was president and was a member of independent counsel Kenneth Starr's legal team that investigated President Bill Clinton in the late 1990s, leading to Clinton's impeachment. The remark was notable because the nine justices on the Supreme Court can act like nine separate law firms.

She asked supporters to sign her petition to stop the Kavanaugh hearing until more documents could be released.

Nishikori could end up fighting for a semi-final berth against Croatian Marin Cilic , who beat him in the 2014 final. Things got tougher in the second as a sluggish Djokovic laboured before again clinching the set with a break.

"Their motives are clear", said Sen.

As a judge, he has amassed a solidly conservative record since 2006 on the influential Washington-based appeals court.

The morning had barely begun when anti-Kavanaugh protesters shouted over the voices of senators, speaking out against the nominee's perceived views on abortion and other hot-button issues. And on Tuesday, it was nice to see the Senate Democrats agree on this point as well. And they're the ones demanding more documents from his years as a White House functionary - purely in hopes that somewhere they can find something that will look bad enough to prompt some nervous Republican senator to bolt.

Capitol Police said they had made 70 arrests on the Senate side of Capitol Hill by the end of the first day of hearings on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

"Big Republican interests keep winning 5-4 partisan decisions: 73-0, Mr. Kavanaugh, every damned time", Whitehouse said.
