Cory Booker Releases Racial Profiling Information on Brett Kavanaugh

Cory Booker Releases Racial Profiling Information on Brett Kavanaugh

In a 2003 email released on Thursday, Kavanaugh suggested striking a line from a draft opinion piece that had stated: "It is widely accepted by legal scholars across the board that Roe v. Wade and its progeny are the settled law of the land", saying that the Supreme Court could overturn it.

The committee's top Democrat, Dianne Feinstein of California, who previously discussed her own memories of an era before the 1973 law made abortion access legal, pressed Kavanaugh to explain himself. The firm in question was founded by Marc Kasowitz, who has represented Trump. It was instead, he said, his prediction for "what legal scholars might say".

"Count me in, too", said Mazie Hirono of Hawaii, who said she was releasing a document to the press and would "defy anyone reading this document that to be able to conclude that this should be deemed confidential in any way, shape or form".

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) on Thursday followed up on her mysterious question for Brett Kavanaugh with a claim that she had "reliable" information that the Supreme Court nominee was involved in a conversation about special counsel Robert Mueller with someone at the law firm of President Trump's personal lawyer.

In a second day of testimony, Kavanaugh declined to comment on Trump's criticism of the judiciary or offer praise of the president's character.

Republican Sen. John Cornyn of Texas called Booker's action "irresponsible and conduct unbecoming a senator".

Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) urged undecided Republicans who support abortion rights to "read this document and then tell me Judge Kavanaugh has been candid with you" about his views on Roe.

Tau theorized that Booker was referring to the Speech or Debate Clause of the Constitution that says members of Congress can not be arrested on their way to and from session or be "questioned in any other Place".

Booker, in particular, was criticized by Republican lawmakers for his histrionics and for releasing documents that appeared to be labeled "committee confidential" to the public.

Paraguay Embassy Move Diplomatic Blow to Israel
Most countries do not recognise Israeli sovereignty over the entire city and say its final status should be set in peace talks. However, the Palestinian Authority said it would "immediately" open an embassy in the South American country.

"The subject of the question is you and whether you were part of a conversation regarding special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation", Harris said.

The document battle stemmed from Kavanaugh's unusually long paper trail following his years in the Bush White House.

Hirono later released the documents, about programs for Native Hawaiians, on Twitter.

"My process was fair", Grassley declared.

Asked about it again Thursday by Hatch, Kavanaugh did not fully clear up the situation. "I openly invite and accept the consequences", he said, per CNN.

Protesters have repeatedly tried to interrupt the hearing, which has carried strong political overtones ahead of the November congressional elections. No further details were provided by Harris to Kavanaugh during the hearing, and she said she would have questions for the record for Kavanaugh about the issue.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell dismissed the protesters' "unhinged antics" as powerless to stop Trump's choice. They also complain that classification decisions were made by former President Bush's attorney, William Burck, a former deputy of Kavanaugh's. "There's no hecklers' veto", he said, in the Senate, which has been forced to cut short its business this week amid Democratic objections over the panel's process.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh testifies during the third day of his confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., September 6, 2018.
