Democratic Senators Send Fundraising Emails During Kavanaugh Hearing

Protesters dress as 'handmaids' for Kavanaugh hearings

In the hearing room, Kavanaugh is being asked about his ability to uphold laws crucial to reproductive health. Protestors also made multiple appearances that were impossible to ignore.

"We can not possibly move forward", Harris, a potential 2020 Democratic presidential contender, said. 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.

"What are we trying to hide, why are we rushing?" Presidential hopefuls like Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Cory Booker (D-NJ) especially shined.

"You're out of order", Grassley told Harris.

Likening a judge to an umpire could be a reference to Chief Justice John Roberts' confirmation hearing back in 2005, when he said his "job is to call balls and strikes and not to pitch or bat".

Democrats have demanded in vain to see documents relating Kavanaugh's time as staff secretary to Republican former President George W. Bush from 2003 to 2006.

Democrat Richard Blumenthal called the session a "charade" and a "mockery".

When the father of a school shooting victim held out his hand to Donald Trump's nominee for the supreme court on Tuesday, Judge Brett Kavanaugh looked at him, then turned without saying a word and walked out.

In a statement Tuesday evening, the U.S. Capitol Police said a total of 70 people were charged with in connection with protests of Tuesday's hearing.

Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing has been riddled with frequent outbursts from the gallery, leading to multiple ejections and arrests. He retired in July.

If all goes according to Republicans' plans, the committee will vote later this month - nearly surely along straight party lines - to send his nomination to the full Senate in hopes of getting him on the court by the October 1 start of the 2018 term.

The hearing gives Democrats a chance to make their case against Kavanaugh ahead of November's congressional elections.

Just yesterday (Sept 3), two Muslim women were caned in public for attempting sexual acts on each other three weeks ago. The women , ages 22 and 32, were caned by a female prison officer, Malaysian news outlets reported.

Kavanaugh, Trump's second Supreme Court nominee, is poised to succeed swing vote Justice Anthony Kennedy, the conservative-centrist who joined with liberals in some key decisions to uphold abortion rights.

Though the men note that "these precedents. have not yet been applied to require a Supreme Court justice to recuse, they plot a trajectory that points unmistakably in that direction". I was her deputy when she was nominated.

Kennedy was a solid conservative but sided with the court's liberals on some issues, including abortion and gay rights.

Democrats still have an uphill battle to derail Kavanaugh's nomination.

Durbin also questioned Kavanaugh's credibility.
