Sasse returns from Supreme Court hearings

Supreme Court nominee steers clear of Trump criticism

The Judiciary Committee will hold up to four days of review, with Kavanaugh to begin facing questions on Day 2, September 5, said committee chairman Sen.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) questioned Kavanaugh Sept. 6 "is there anything in the Constitution about a right to abortion?"

The memo, tucked toward the end of almost 10,000 pages released Friday, provides greater insight into Kavanaugh's views on executive power that are expected to feature prominently in his Senate confirmation hearings. 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. "We'll see where we are".

"The fact we could be adding a justice to the court that has indicated he's not too sure terrified me", Beddard said. Chuck Grassley. Kavanaugh's appearance will be followed by testimony from legal experts and people who know the judge.

Democrats and Booker responded, "Bring it on". Richard Blumenthal of CT, telling him that he was not asserting his own views, but that many legal scholars hold such a position on Roe. "So that's precedent on precedent, as I've explained, and that's important".

The Supreme Court is now evenly divided 4-4 between conservative and liberal justices.

"I think that the average independent voter - the labor family that voted for Trump last time but is now reconsidering - people like that don't think that screaming in a hearing room is a particularly effective strategy or a signal of a party that they much want to belong to", said Sen.

The right to own firearms was a frequent topics throughout the week of hearings. The new documents Friday provide a glimpse into Kavanaugh's years on the Starr team shuttling back and forth to Little Rock for "investigative purposes".

If ever there was a reminder that fans should appreciate the game's largest figures while they can, Tuesday night at the U.S. Law and Whitaker say it feels like there's an irresistible force behind del Potro that's pushing him to the title.

The NAACP called on the Judiciary Committee to investigate the allegations. Kavanaugh said he hadn't. "There are millions and millions and millions of semiautomatic rifles that are possessed". "They're certainly risky - all weapons are unsafe - but are they unusual?" "They've violated Senate rules, leaked confidential information and trafficked in conspiracy theories - all in a desperate attempt to smear Judge Kavanaugh's stellar reputation".

Though Kavanaugh this week referred to the decision legalizing abortion nationally as established precedent, recently released emails show that as a White House lawyer in 2003 he advised against referring to the ruling as "settled law".

California Sen. Kamala Harris probed Kavanaugh about the matter.

At the time, Kavanaugh was associate counsel in the White House and was responsible for helping to vet judicial nominees who would appear before the Judiciary Committee. "I applaud the president for that pick".

In addition to the special counsel, Kavanaugh's views on executive authority were a constant focus throughout the hearings. So far, the committee has made public Kavanaugh's 17,000-page questionnaire and his more than 300 court cases as an appellate judge.

The bottom line: Will Kavanaugh have the votes?

On the Republican side, witnesses testifying in support of Kavanaugh included longtime friends and former law clerks. In addition, Democrats fiercely opposed to his confirmation have remained in their hardened stance.

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