  • Kavanaugh hearings: the making of political sausage

    Thanks to the US Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the US Supreme Court, America and the world learned why you do not want to see how to make political sausage. It is dirty and nasty, especially when it is hot and spicy. It reminds me of that song that says, "there ain’t no good guys, there ain’t no bad guys, there's only you and me and we just disagree.” Republicans failed to advance the fact-finding process by sticking with their talking points that 1) FBI investigations do not mean squat in these matters;...

    "We're sorry for this tweet. In retrospect, a Twitter poll is insensitive in light of the gravity of this hearing." The New York Times was forced to issue a public apology Thursday after public backlash over a Twitter poll that asked whether people believed if Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony was credible. Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about her allegations that Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh attempted to sexually assault her in the 1980s. Shortly after Ford’s opening statement, the New York Times’ opinion Twitter account tweeted a poll asking people whether they believed if Ford was credible.

    Fox News ^ | September 20, 2018
    After the nation was riveted by the Senate testimony of Anita Hill and Clarence Thomas, the Supreme Court nomination came to a vote. Democrats controlled the Senate. Joe Biden had chaired the hearings. And yet Thomas was confirmed, with 11 Democrats joining 41 Republicans to provide the margin of victory (and two Republicans voting against him). That would be inconceivable today. The hyperpartisan nature of today’s politics would never allow so many Democrats to defect in favor of a Republican president's nominee, one who was not only extremely conservative but had faced a last-minute accusation of sexual harassment.

    The Washington Examiner ^ | 17 Sept 2018 | Gabby Morrongiello
    Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has reportedly hired Washington trial lawyer Beth Wilkinson amid the fallout over a woman alleging he sexually assaulted her while in high school. The allegation of sexual misconduct emerged late last week, following Kavanaugh's appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee. His accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, revealed her identity in the Washington Post over the weekend and has agreed to recount her experience in sworn testimony before the Senate panel if called in the coming days. Kavanaugh has described Ford's accusation as "categorically false," saying in a statement Monday he did not know who was making...

    Congress will interview Nellie Ohr, the wife of Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr, later this week, Texas Rep. John Ratcliffe said on Sunday. Ratcliffe said Sunday that Ohr is expected to appear for a closed-door interview with the House Judiciary and House Oversight & Government Reform Committees, in an interview on Fox News. Ohr worked during the 2016 election cycle for Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm that investigated Donald Trump on behalf of the Clinton campaign and DNC. Fusion hired former British spy Christopher Steele, the author of the infamous anti-Trump dossier that was used to obtain spy...

    Earlier today 2020 presidential candidate and New Jersey Democrat Senator Cory Booker made quite the scene at Judge Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing. Daring Republicans to expel him from the Senate, Booker vowed to knowingly break Senate rules by releasing confidential Committee documents and accused Kavanaugh of having something hide.  DOCUMENTS:--Rs say the "committee confidential" docs were cleared for release before 4 a.m.--Ds say the docs were cleared for release at about 10:31 a.m. this morning--REGARDLESS, they were cleared for public release before Booker and Hirono posted them on their websites.— Seung Min Kim (@seungminkim) September 6, 2018 .@CoryBooker: “Apply the rule...

    The Hill ^ | 09/06/18 | Jordain Carney
    Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) on Thursday released emails from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's time as a White House counsel, escalating a heated fight over his documents. Booker released approximately 12 pages of emails tied to discussions Kavanaugh had on racial inequality including one email thread titled "racial profiling." The documents are marked "committee confidential," meaning they are not supposed to be discussed or released publicly. But the move comes after Booker said during a heated debate on Kavanaugh's third day before the Judiciary Committee that he would release the email thread. "I am right now, before your process is...

    Unhinged: The American Left has completely abandoned any pretense of civility, as demonstrated this week during Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearings for confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court. From the moment the hearings began on Tuesday, Leftists who flooded the room have yelled, screamed, shrieked, and fought to disrupt the confirmation process, denying Americans their right to hear what Judge Kavanaugh has to say.
  • Kamala Harris And Brett Kavanaugh Had A Very Weird Exchange At His Confirmation Hearing

    More than 12 hours into Judge Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation hearing on Wednesday, Sen. Kamala Harris raised a question about Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation that appeared to take everyone by surprise. "Have you ever discussed Special Counsel Mueller or his investigation with anyone?" Harris asked, prompting Kavanaugh to note that the topic is "in the news everyday" and that he had discussed it "with other judges." Then, however, Harris shifted to a far more direct question: "Have you discussed Mueller or his investigation with anyone at Kasowitz Benson and Torres, the law firm found by Marc Kasowitz, President...
  • Kavanaugh hearing to be cut short, after Schumer blocks GOP request

    The Senate Judiciary Committee hearing for Judge Brett Kavanaugh will be cut short Wednesday, after Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., blocked Republican efforts to keep questioning the nominee until late in the day. Schumer objected to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s request for the committee to continue meeting after 2 p.m., meaning the Supreme Court confirmation hearings could bleed into next week. The move is the latest clash between the parties in what has been a contentious hearing process.

    During the senate confirmation hearing today the full antics of the Democrat political apparatus were on display. One of their choreographed and manufactured moments happened when a man named Fred Guttenberg was staged to shake the hand of Judge Kavanaugh during one of the recess breaks. SEE VIDEO: Fred Guttenberg is one of the parents from the February Parkland High School shooting, a Democrat and a gun control proponent. Judge Brett Kavanaugh, like most of America, had no idea who the guy was who was trying to grab him. It was an entirely staged event put on by Senator Dianne...

    Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) admitted Tuesday in the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court that he and other Democrats participated in a conference call on how to disrupt the hearings. [Snip] The hearing had already been disrupted several times by protesters - led by the anti-Trump and Democrat-aligned Women’s March, which claimed credit - and several senators also interrupted proceedings with interjections. [Snip] The hearing eventually settled into opening statements, though protests continued. Durbin later praised the protesters: "What we've heard is the noise of democracy."

    Paul has more fortitude than I do to live-blog the moment-by-moment unfolding of the circus at the Kavanaugh hearings. I predicted when Kavanaugh was nominated that the hearings would be disrupted. Not a hard prediction to make, but still—that didn’t take long. The hard part will be telling the difference between the protesters and the conduct of Corey Booker and Kamala Harris. Maybe another way of thinking about it is that it is nice to see the Trump 2020 re-election grassroots campaign is turning out so enthusiastically at the hearings. The interesting question right now is whether these protests will...
