Brett Kavanaugh explains Parkland encounter, baseball ticket bills

Brett Kavanaugh explains Parkland encounter, baseball ticket bills

When asked about one of the more contentious moments of his hearing, when he appeared to avoid a handshake with Fred Guttenberg, whose daughter Jamie was among the victims killed during a mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida last February, Kavanaugh said he thought Guttenberg was a protester and his security detail subsequently intervened.

Republican Chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa says he already agreed to hold over the vote on Kavanaugh for one week. If I'd known who he was, I would have shaken his hand, talked to him and expressed my sympathy. "Vote against us and we give her the money".

For The Washington Post, Eli Rosenberg detects signs that an "unusual crowdfunding campaign" by "a group of liberal activists in Maine" soliciting pledges to be contributed in 2020 to a Democrat challenging Sen.

Kavanaugh's responses, which amounted to more than 260 pages, answered the senators' questions on topics that ranged from abortion, executive power and his personal finances.

Following days of questioning by lawmakers on Capitol Hill, the Senate Judiciary Committee has made a decision to move the committee vote on the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill the vacant seat on the United States Supreme Court to next week.

Democrats have said they want to learn more about whether Kavanaugh played a significant role in controversial policy debates in the Bush White House, including those relating to the treatment of detainees held after the September 11, 2001, attacks.

Democratic senators and others working to defeat Kavanaugh's confirmation believe Kavanaugh significantly misled the Judiciary Committee more than a decade ago on his involvement in controversial Bush-era programs and judicial confirmations.

Booker is being criticized by his GOP colleagues and outside groups for releasing the documents, which the Judiciary Committee is holding back on a confidential basis that makes them accessible only to senators.

Judicial Watch has filed an ethics complaint against Democrat Senator Cory Booker. Kavanaugh is committed to ending healthcare for people with pre-existing conditions.

"We lack the time, we lack the documents and we need witnesses before we can proceed further with this meeting", Blumenthal said. Dianne Feinstein of California, sought a subpoena for documents from Kavanaugh's time as Bush's staff secretary.

"If confirmed, I would respect the law of precedent given its centrality to stability, predictability, impartiality and public confidence in the rule of law", Kavanaugh said.

Manchin is one of three moderate Democratic senators who are being furiously pressured by those on both sides of the Kavanaugh nomination.

In a lengthy statement, King said "there is too much at stake" to confirm Kavanaugh to a lifetime term on the court with "no do-overs or second chances".
