Who is Donald Trump's 'controversial' Supreme Court nominee?

"I think you're thinking of someone and you don't want to tell us", the senator said. "If you walk into my court room and you have the better legal arguments, you will win".

Graham offered a general example on the issue of abortion for Kavanaugh to respond to: "Some state somewhere or some town somewhere passes a law that runs into the face of Roe".

It was a textualist judicial philosophy - one seemingly meant to assuage concerns that his confirmation would represent a rightward turn for the nation's high court.

Hatch explored Kavanaugh's relationship with former 9th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Alex Kozinski, who Kavanaugh clerked for in 1991. Not really, according to Kathleen Clark, a professor of law at Washington University School of Law.

"I'm asking you a very direct question - yes or no?"

"They were ideas of Congress to consider, they were not my constitutional views", he said of the article.

He said he understood the importance of the precedent in the landmark 1973 case, Roe v Wade, which legalised abortion nationwide, pointing out it had been reaffirmed by the Supreme Court several times. "My personal beliefs are not relevant". But not only are there signs that some Democrats may ultimately support Kavanaugh, but no Republicans appear to be wavering either.

Blumenthal said Kavanaugh's noncommittal answer was disheartening. He cited historic court cases including Brown v. Board of Education that desegregated schools and US v. Nixon that compelled the president to turn over the Watergate tapes - a ruling that Kavanaugh had previously questioned. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., if he had ever "come across memos from internal files of any Democratic members given to you or provided to you in any way" to which Kavanaugh responded that he had not.

In early August, the National Archives, which holds or has access to many records related to Kavanaugh's time working for Bush and independent counsel Kenneth Starr, said it could not produce all of the Kavanaugh-related documents requested by the Senate until the end of October.

The Feb. 14 massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School left 17 people dead. It is unclear from the video whether Kavanaugh had heard Guttenberg after he fully identified himself.

On Tuesday, the confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh began.

"I was just arrested for civil disobedience in the Kavanaugh hearings". Perabo took a photo outside of the Supreme Court and quoted the novelist James Baldwin to explain how she felt about her country.

Durbin directly confronted Kavanaugh over his textualist approach later in his line of questioning.

Afterward, Guttenberg tweeted that Kavanaugh "pulled his hand back, turned his back to me and walked away".

"We don't rewrite those laws", he said, adding the executive branch also should not rewrite law. "We know there's so much more to your job than that".

Sen. Doug Jones, the Democrat from Alabama who won his special election after Gorsuch was confirmed, was non-committal when asked about Kavanaugh on Wednesday. The change could make the court more conservative on a range of issues.

Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) while interrupting Grassley, referring to the September 3 release to the committee of 42,000 documents relating to the nominee's work with past administrations. Finally, hours before the hearing, the White House sent 42,000 pages to the committee with instructions that they be kept confidential by senators who viewed them.

In his opening remarks, Grassley accused Democrats - who plotted strategy for the hearing on a conference call Monday - of colluding with protesters to disrupt the hearing.

"What a bunch of dumbbells", Sen.

Under questioning from senators on Wednesday, Kavanaugh signaled respect for the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling legalizing abortion nationwide and condemned the spate of USA school shootings.
