The Latest: Feinstein questions Kavanaugh commitment to Roe

Chuck Schumer and other Democrats reportedly considered staging a mass walkout during the confirmation hearing of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, but feared such move would only give ammunition to Republicans. He says precedent is about judicial independence and ensuring predictability. A judge must interpret statutes as written.

When Grassley pressed on, speaking over Harris, her objection was reinforced by interventions from other Democrats, in a choreographed show of dissent from Democrats under fierce pressure from their grassroots voters to disrupt Kavanaugh's likely confirmation.

The Supreme Court nominee is set to answer questions from senators throughout the day for the first time Wednesday. Rather than engage Fred, however, Kavanaugh shot him a confused look and turned away. refusing to talk to the guy.

"We can not possibly move forward, Mr. Chairman, with this hearing", she declared.

I mean, nobody is calling for every document to be released. Democrats continued to speak over the Chairman even after they were ruled out of order to the jeers of protestors who had to be removed.

Senate whose stands on the issues often crossed party lines. "The America of John McCain is generous and welcoming and bold". Kyl benefits from a long Washington experience, having served a total of 26 years in Congress, 18 of them alongside McCain .

Republicans hold a slim Senate majority and can confirm Kavanaugh if they stay united. So far, there are no signs of Republican defections.

The father of a Parkland shooting victim approached Judge Brett Kavanaugh during a break at his confirmation hearing Tuesday in a dramatic moment caught on camera.

Trump's first nominee to the high court, Neil Gorsuch, was confirmed in April 2017, 14 months after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia created a vacancy in President Barack Obama's past year in office.

Irked by a protester who interrupted him, Sen. Democrats are requesting documents from Kavanaugh's time as former President George W. Bush's staff secretary. Cory Booker and Kamala Harris led the charge, accusing the White House and the Republicans of hiding key details about Kavanaugh's time as a Bush-era White House lawyer by refusing to publicly release tens of thousands of documents.

Senate Democrats staged an aggressive bid Tuesday to slow the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as fury over a selection that could tilt the nation's top bench to the right for a generation exploded on Capitol Hill. He was again sitting in the hearing room for the afternoon session. He occasionally jotted notes on paper. Video of the encounter was shared widely on social media.

Petrol, diesel prices hit new highs, rise for 9th consecutive day
The US sanctions on Iran is not the only reason for India to be anxious about a possible spike in petrol and diesel prices. He also said that the factors responsible for drop in production of crude oil have caused a spike in fuel prices in India.

White House spokesman Raj Shah says security intervened before Kavanaugh could shake the hand of the "unidentified individual".

There is a long history of heated fights over US Supreme Court nominations, with anger in both parties. But the Democratic frustrations that boiled over on September 4 had been simmering for more than two years.

Whitehouse also brought up Roberts' famous confirmation hearing line - that as a judge he merely calls balls and strikes - to argue that his court is 73-0 in ruling in favor of corporations. After meeting with Kavanaugh last month, Sen. The court begins its next term in October.

Republicans brushed aside complaints that Kavanaugh is too partisan and accused Democrats of stalling tactics.

Speaking on CNN, Mr Guttenberg said: "I simply said, 'Hi, my name is Fred Guttenberg, I'm the father of Jaime Guttenberg, who was murdered in Parkland".

Who is Bruce Ohr, who keeps appearing in Trump’s tweets?
Steele also reportedly said that a Trump campaign aide had more contact with Russian officials than had been revealed. Another Republican point of protest is that Ohr's wife, Nellie Ohr , had worked as a subcontractor for Fusion.
