"Handmaids" are protesting at Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing

Kavanaugh is President Trump's second nominee to the US Supreme Court

Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, the second highest-ranking Republican in the Senate, said the hearing had degenerated into "mob rule" within the first hour.

Much of Perabo's Twitter feed is made up of retweets from political activists, so it's clearly an issue she feels strongly enough about it.

"We go to these hearings under protest", said Sen.

Senator Dianne Feinstein, Democrat of California, addressed Kavanaugh about abortion.

Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin of IL asked Kavanaugh if he would seek a delay in his hearing so the paper trail could be vetted. "Democratic senators interrupted the hearing 63 times before lunch, and in the audience, 70 people were arrested yesterday who were following their lead".

The "Newsmaker of the Day" is heard every weekday morning at 6:45, 7:45 and 8:45 on AM 1450 and FM 102.7 KVML.

Thank you for signing up for the Sunrise Newsletter. "And therefore, we are there to do our job", Sen.

Democrats and Republicans squabbled over documents withheld from the 53-year-old Washington D.C. native's years working for Republican causes.

Kavanaugh continued today to refuse to answer direct questions about his stance on Roe v. Wade, instead repeating the same line about having supported the ruling as a lower court judge because it was "established law", which means absolutely nothing to a Supreme Court Justice, since they're in the position to set-or reset-what is established law.

"I don't decide cases based on personal or policy preferences", he told the Senate panel.

"A judge must be independent and must interpret the law, not make the law".

Whether that's enough to assuage concerned Democrats and some Republicans is to be determined.

"There will be sparks at this hearing". "What is wrong with our country?" said Sen.

The 53-year-old judge, who serves on the US Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, sat impassively for almost seven hours of senators' statements before speaking for less than 20 minutes.

Mack, Bears agree to record deal
The Oakland Raiders have acquired first-round selections in the 2019 and 2020 NFL Draft via a trade with the Chicago Bears . Donald signed a six-year extension worth $135 million on Friday in a deal that included $87 million in guaranteed money.

The hearing is scheduled to last four days. Kavanaugh has produced more records to the committee than any other Supreme Court nominee in history, according to the chairman.

On the issue of gun rights, Senator Feinstein pressed Mr Kavanaugh on his previous opposition to a ban on semi-automatic rifles. The Supreme Court will likely have to make key decisions on the extent of presidential power, with rulings surrounding pardon power, compliance with subpoenas, and presidential immunity. We're very different on this judgeship or judges generally.

He differed with a White House characterization of his record on government regulations. He has been on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit for 12 years and has authored 307 opinions, concurrences and dissents.

Durbin pointed out that the minor had already gotten the approval from a judge, as a required by Texas law, to seek the abortion, and asked Kavanaugh why he wanted to add a requirement that she must also have an immigration sponsor before obtaining it. Some Republicans argued that democracy is broken because Democrats want to reflexively oppose Trump.

Majority Republicans can confirm Kavanaugh without any Democratic votes, though they'll have little margin for error.

The full court denied the petition to rehear the case.

Characterizing Kavanaugh as "an extremist who will help institutionalize Trump's hate for a generation", the groups also acknowledge Kavanaugh's record as an appellate judge, noting concerns that he will prevent women from obtaining abortions, help the Trump administration gut the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), "decimate Obamacare, supercharge voter suppression", and serve as "Trump's get-out-of-jail-free card when it comes to the Mueller investigation".

Arsenal boss slaps players with freaky ban
But Cardiff manager and route one extraordinaire Neil Warnock doesn't care for that sort of sentiment. To be more competitive we want to be organised with and without the ball.

Klobuchar, a lawyer and former Hennepin County attorney, is the fifth ranking Democratic on the committee, which has 10 Democratic members. "We're laboring under this disadvantage".
