Fierce document dispute grips Trump Supreme Court pick's hearing

Sen. Harris pushes Kavanaugh on abortion

Harris had asked Kavanaugh whether he ever had discussed Mueller or his Russian Federation probe with anyone at Kasowitz Benson Torres, the almost 300-member law firm founded by Marc Kasowitz, a former personal attorney to President Trump.

During a Fox News Sunday interview, Coons refused to say whether Booker would be required to meet with the Senate Ethics Committee, suggesting the document dump might have come at a price.

But Kavanaugh tampered the email during an exchange with Democratic Sen.

For the most part, the day's questions focused on documents opaquely referenced by Democrats on Wednesday that Booker and other senators released Thursday. In what nearly seemed like a celebration Thursday, Kavanaugh's two daughters returned to the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing room for the final hours of testimony, accompanied by teammates on Catholic school basketball teams their father has coached.

Among those testifying were two representatives of the American Bar Association, the leading USA professional group for lawyers, who said a panel that rates judicial nominees gave Kavanaugh a "well qualified" rating, the highest possible.

On divisive issues that could reach the court such as abortion and gun rights, Kavanaugh declined to offer personal views, restricting himself to reciting Supreme Court precedent.

Facebook, Twitter defend efforts to stop election meddling
Chief election commissioner O P Rawat told TOI that "EC's interactions with the three social media companies are complete". Many senators expressed anger at Google, which was represented in the hearing room by an empty chair next to Sandberg.

Kavanaugh did answer a lot of questions in a number of key areas, including abortion, gun rights, and special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation.

Though Kavanaugh's nomination will appear on the Judiciary Committee's business meeting on Thursday, Democrats are expected to delay a vote until next week, likely on September 20.

If you want proof that our system is broken, you need only look at today's hearing on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, where children who aren't old enough to vote testified against the nominee.

Booker, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, again attacked GOP senators for refusing to release documents that Kavanaugh had written when he was White House counsel to President George W. Bush.

"I was born at night but not last night", Leahy said, "and if I found I had something that somebody said "we've stolen this" or "don't tell anybody we have this" - I think it would raise a red flag".

Eastmond was followed by two children with chronic health problems, both of whom have apparently been led to believe that if Kavanaugh is confirmed, they will be banned from seeking treatment for their conditions and forced to breathe dirty air.

Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., asked the judge Tuesday.

One of the 12-page email chains that Booker ultimately provided showed that, in 2002, Kavanaugh wrote that he "generally" favored racially neutral security measures in the long term. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., Kavanaugh introduced several girls on a softball team he has coached through the years, rattling off their names and grade levels one by one. The hearings, which began September 4, included several disruptions by protestors, seemingly political lines of questioning by senators, and even a cameo appearance by the youth basketball team he coaches.

And even though Texas Republican Sen.

Kavanaugh maintained that he views Roe v. Wade, which legalized a woman's right to obtain an abortion, as an "important precedent" during his recent Senate hearing, including when he was asked directly about the 2003 email.

That changed at this week's hearings, when the committee released a number of previously undisclosed emails that Leahy said raised new questions about Kavanaugh's knowledge that the documents were improperly taken.
