Kavanaugh pledges to be 'team player' on Supreme Court

Brett Kavanaugh

The Hawaii senator may deliver another dramatic moment on Wednesday, as she plans to ask Kavanaugh what he knew about the behavior of his former boss Judge Alex Kozinski, who recently retired after being accused of touching or making unwanted sexual comments toward 15 women.

"The Brett Kavanaugh hearings for the future Justice of the Supreme Court are truly a display of how mean, angry, and despicable the other side is", Trump tweeted. Susan Collins, R-Maine, who said Kavanaugh told her that the high court's 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion is "settled law".

Grassley said the theatrics that played out on national television were not typical of the committee he chairs.

The hearing gave Democrats a platform to make their case against Kavanaugh ahead of November's congressional elections in which they are seeking to seize control of Congress from Republicans.

Last year, Kavanaugh praised former Supreme Court Justice William Rehnquist's dissent in the Roe case and as a sitting federal judge ruled against a young immigrant held in USA custody who wanted to obtain an abortion, delaying her care.

'Put out my hand to introduce myself as Jaime Guttenberg's dad. "As soon as I got to the 'murdered in Parkland, ' that's when you saw him turn and move and walk the other way".

In an email, the White House spokesman Raj Shah wrote: "I stand by my tweet/email on this topic", when asked about video of the interaction that appears to contradict the White House's claim that security had intervened "before the Judge was able to shake [Guttenberg's] hand".

Democrats seized on Kavanaugh's comments in which he supported an expansion of a United States president's immunity from prosecution - a dramatic shift from his recommendation for strong action against then-president Bill Clinton when Kavanaugh assisted in a 1990s investigation against him. Senate Republicans, who want to confirm Kavanaugh before the Supreme Court starts its new term in October, have instead been relying on the documents to be released through the Bush presidential library after they were reviewed by attorney William Burck, a process Democrats have deemed too partisan.

During the hearings two starkly different images of Kavanaugh emerged.

The confirmation hearing for US President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee has descended into "mob rule", a Republican senator said.

"I'm concerned that he won't be that person", Guttenberg said. Republican Senators fell in line behind Kavanaugh, but interestingly Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ)-who is not seeking reelection and has been a critic of President Trump-seconded Democrats concerns about Trump's threats to the rule of law and democratic norms.

"We work in a more collegial way than what you're seeing on television", he said.

"This is something I have never gone through before in 15 Supreme Court nominations". He fiercely defended the independence of the Judiciary.

In his opening statement, Kavanaugh vows to be a "pro-law judge" who will interpret the law impartially. "Precedent is rooted right in the Constitution itself".

Kavanaugh worked in key White House positions when George W. Bush was president and was a member of independent counsel Kenneth Starr's legal team that investigated President Bill Clinton in the late 1990s, leading to Clinton's impeachment.

"There's a 35-month black hole in your White House career where we've been denied access to any and all documents", Durbin said.
