Kavanaugh protests escalate, over 120 arrested on Capitol Hill

27 September 2018

Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh is scheduled to testify Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committee. If I could contribute more first-hand information, I would, but I will not be granting any more interviews or answering any more questions at this time. Sanders, however, said the "absolutely appalling and disgusting" behavior of Democratic lawmakers who have opposed Kavanaugh has turned the confirmation process into a "huge public circus".

Kavanaugh, President Trump's nominee to replace the retired Anthony Kennedy, has denied allegations that he was ever guilty of sexual misconduct with anyone. Roche said. "We talked at night as freshman roommates do and I would see him as he returned from nights out with his friends".

Chua has had an outsized influence in helping select clerks for Kavanaugh in her role at Yale Law School.

A lawyer for his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, said that Ford was ready to testify about her experience, but wanted to negotiate the terms of her testimony.

"It is Judge Kavanaugh who is seeking a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court, and who I think now bears the burden of disproving these allegations, rather than Dr. Ford and Ms. Ramirez who should be dismissed with slanderous accusations", he said.

"Everything that is being said about the advice I give to students applying to Brett Kavanaugh - or any judge - is outrageous, 100% false, and the exact opposite of everything I have stood for and said for the last fifteen years", Chua said.

The New York Times led with the Twitter allegation in a story about how prominent Republican swing votes could be on the fence about Kavanaugh's nomination.

Character witnesses from Kavanaugh's youth withdrawing support and calling for a full investigation should raise some serious red flags.

About 300 students participated in the protests on campus, and 115 others traveled to Washington to demonstrate, said John Gonzalez, a second-year law student who said the protests included the majority of the student body of about 600.

Girls for Gender Equity, a non-profit based in Brooklyn, New York, that aims to create more opportunities for women and girls, arranged protests at the Supreme Court and a walkout at City Hall in New York City.

Oil rises on United States crude stock draw, supply concerns
Trump is moving ahead with sanctions against Iran that are already curbing their exports ahead of formal reimposition in November. Iran, for example, has indicated it is happy with oil at $80 per barrel, so would presumably oppose a production increase.

Faculty at the school have canceled the majority of classes Monday morning at the request of students.

When news of Kavanaugh's nomination first came out, several law school faculty endorsed him in a Yale news release.

Yale Law School Dean Heather Gherken has now responded forcefully to those reports in an email sent to the community at the school, which Bustle has now obtained a copy of.

Mr Trump is suggesting the timing of the New Yorker article is further evidence of what he has been saying privately for days: that the Democrats and media are conspiring to undermine his pick.

Inside Higher Ed reports that the law school is investigating whether Chua and Rubenfeld, who are married to each other, engaged in misconduct.
