'Sham President, Sham Justice!': Protesters Disrupt Day 2 of Kavanaugh Hearings

06 September 2018

U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh can expect to spend most of Wednesday in the hot seat, sparring with Democratic senators over abortion, guns, executive power and other high-profile issues. Kavanaugh considered the judge a friend and mentor and Kozinski testified at Kavanaugh's 2006 confirmation hearing to be an appellate judge. Dianne Feinstein of California, whether a president can be required to respond to a subpoena, Kavanaugh said, "I can't give you an answer on that hypothetical question".

Sean, I think that's exactly right; I think yesterday and today were both really good days for the country; they were good days for Brett Kavanaugh. And most prominently, most importantly, reaffirmed in Planned Parenthood V. Casey in 1992. This, he explained, is subject to a point, "to reasonable regulation by the state".

Republicans said Tuesday that their staff had enough time to review the documents, but Sen.

Pressed by Democratic Senator Dick Durbin, Kavanaugh defended a ruling he took part in issuing an order preventing a 17-year-old illegal immigrant detained by U.S. authorities in Texas from immediately having an abortion.

Not all Democrats have said they will oppose Mr Kavanaugh, and several may even support his nomination. It would take some legislative action for that to happen, is that correct?

But Booker says he can't share the email with the nominee because it is among those that have been labelled "committee confidential" - available to senators, but not the public. Kavanaugh replied, appearing perplexed.

Graham further asked, "When it comes to overruling a longstanding precedent of the court, is there a formula you use?"

Secondly, global currencies have weakened against the USA dollar", Pradhan had said in Surat. Because the price is built up by excessive taxes on petrol and diesel.

"Of course the violence in the schools is something we all detest and want to do something about", Mr Kavanaugh said, but added that handguns and other semi-automatic weapons were also used for hunting and self-defence. "There are factors you look at whenever you're considering any precedent".

But Democrats are powerless to delay a vote on Kavanaugh since McConnell led Republicans, during the Gorsuch nomination, in eliminating the 60-vote filibuster threshold that had been in place for Supreme Court nominations.

Senators are especially likely to grill Kavanaugh on his dissent from a ruling by the D.C. Circuit last October that an undocumented immigrant teen was entitled to seek an abortion.

"It's important to emphasize that it was a minor", Kavanaugh began. The ruling was later overturned and she underwent the abortion. Kavanaugh said the teen could have been able to "consult with" the sponsor as she faced her decision.

Kavanaugh also spoke to Hatch about his views on judicial deference to agencies, known as the Chevron doctrine, after the landmark 1984 Supreme Court case Chevron USA Inc. v. He portrayed himself as a "civil" judge and an admirer of the 1954 Brown v Board of Education decision that ended segregation laws, calling it "the greatest moment in Supreme Court history".

He refuted Durbin's assertion that he had "bypassed the judicial bypass, which she received from the state of Texas when it came to parental consent".

Durbin urged Kavanaugh relating to the case, "The clock is ticking...20-week clock is ticking". She does not speak English.

Democratic Activist Ousts Incumbent Massachusetts Congressman in Primary
The 7th Congressional District is the only one in the state where minorities comprise a majority of the population. But she also argued her case in part based on identity, saying last week that "representation does matter".

"I'm not making the policy decision".

Kavanaugh also said courts have to stick to law passed by Congress.

Kavanaugh said it would compromise the independence of the court to signal how he would respond to cases involving Trump, who nominated him in July to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy.

A set of emails, which have been made public and were reviewed by The Post, showed that Kavanaugh and his associates were concerned that whatever they wrote might one day be made public.

"A precedent's not like a cafeteria, where I can take this, but not that".

Kavanaugh said he would have a "completely open mind" if the legal issues came before him as a judge.
