Kavanaugh Hearing Concludes

Sep 7, 2018

The hearing for Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, concluded today with more than two dozen witnesses, including outside legal experts and others.

Kavanaugh’s unwavering testimony has frustrated Democrats who have not been able to derail him or hurt his confirmation vote. During yesterday’s session, Sen. Cory Booker created his own theatrical performance claiming, “this is the closest I’ll get to an ‘I am Spartacus’ moment,” when he stated that he would “knowingly” violate Senate rules by releasing “confidential” Kavanaugh emails. Booker claimed he was standing up for the release of classified documents written by Judge Kavanaugh about the use of “racial profiling” at airports in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks. Booker made a point of saying he was willing to get expelled from the Senate by releasing the emails the committee had deemed classified.

However, the email documents were cleared to be released publicly shortly after Senator Booker’s staff requested them before the hearing began! Bill Burck, who is the George W. Bush records representative that led the review of Kavanaugh’s records said, “We were surprised to learn about Senator Booker’s histrionics this morning because we had already told him he could use the documents publicly. In fact, we have said yes to every request made by the Senate Democrats to make public documents public.” In the end, the “racial profiling” email indicated that Kavanaugh did not support “racial profiling.” The substance of the email was completely counter to Booker’s histrionics. Booker openly lied and merely grandstanded to make himself look brave for his apparent future run for president. 

Security was high in the Hart Senate Office Building today as women dressed in black and wearing veils waited to enter the hearing room. Seventy-three protestors were arrested yesterday as eyewitness accounts continue to confirm that people are being paid $50 to disrupt the Senate hearings. They are being provided with free breakfast, lunch, and bail money.  

A vote by the full Senate is expected to occur later in September. This would clear Kavanaugh to be seated on the first Monday of October when the new term for the High Court begins.
