Americans split on whether to confirm Kavanaugh

  • Kamala Harris grills Kavanaugh on Mueller investigation

Asked on CBS' Face the Nation whether he would need to vote to confirm Kavanaugh, he said: "Well, we hope not".

Even if Kavanaugh could claim that he didn't have any hint at the time he received the emails that these documents were of suspect provenance - which I personally find implausible - there is no reasonable way for him to assert honestly that he had no idea what they were after the revelation of the theft.

Graham pressed the issue, and Kavanaugh responded that the Supreme Court applied the liberty clause in its decisions regarding abortion: "The Supreme Court has found it under the liberty clause but you're right".

"I am told that he was editing an op-ed for clarity and was merely stating a fact that three judges on the court were anti-Roe", she said.

Ramos backed by ITF over 'regrettable' Serena rant
Well Julie here's a cartoon I drew a few days before when Australian male tennis player Kyrgios at the US Open was behaving badly. During a break, Williams was still waiting for Ramos to acknowledge that she had not cheated: "You're attacking my character".

"After reviewing his writings, opinions, and testimony, I have concluded that Judge Kavanaugh will create a new Supreme Court majority that will threaten women's reproductive rights, roll back essential environmental regulations, and favor large corporations over workers", Bennet said in a statement Tuesday. Earlier this week, he clarified testimony from his 2004 confirmation hearing involving a controversial judge he helped shepherd through the nomination process.

Under committee rules, any one member can request a nomination be held over for a week the first time it appears on the agenda like Kavanaugh's will be on Thursday.

Miranda, now a private attorney in Maryland, said he worked "closely" with Kavanaugh on the nominations and may have shared information that he learned from the Democratic files.

"We should put these Democratic Senators under oath, because they are the ones deliberately misleading the public", Shah said.

Luis Enrique won his first game in charge of Spain as La Roja came from behind to beat England 2-1 at Wembley in the Nations League.

Jackson Corbin, a 13-year-old afflicted with Noonan Syndrome, begged senators not to "destroy protections for pre-existing conditions" that would leave him and others like him "without care or without the ability to afford our care - all because of who we are".

A congressional report blamed Miranda and another staffer for viewing the documents. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) if he knew he had received notes and talking points stolen from Democrats. He questioned Kavanaugh about the matter in confirmation hearings in 2004, when Kavanaugh's nomination for the federal appeals court was stalled, and in 2006, when Kavanaugh won confirmation.

The special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 elections, headed by former FBI Director Robert Mueller, was a significant focus of much of the confirmation hearings with Kavanaugh.

The email shows Kavanaugh proposed deleting the line for the sake of accuracy. "We have every reason to believe that was taken", Leahy said. One email chain was titled "spying", and Democratic files were referred to as "confidential" several times.

Hurricane Florence takes aim at US Southeast
Tropical Storm Helene formed late Friday night off the coast of Africa, one of three storms - two named - now in the Atlantic. The storm's maximum sustained winds are 50 miles per hour (85 kph) and it is moving west at 8 miles per hour (13 kmh).

After most senators settled in to their usual roles and the chaos of protests and political infighting subsided, the support for Kavanaugh among the Republican ranks is the same.
