But the 414-page document, authored by the Republican majority and released over the weekend, contains a number of key revelations. Among them: the report summarizes a statement from a man who believes he may have been involved in an encounter with Christine...

Katz, Lisa J. Banks, and Michael R. Bromwich for violating the rules of professional responsibility in their representation of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee during the hearings on the nomination of the Honorable Brett Kavanaugh.

    Despite the fact that taking videos and photos were prohibited during the hearing, Milano continued taking pictures and tweeting during the proceedings, prompting guards to confiscate her phone. Alyssa Milano, an American actress and #MeToo activist, drew attention on social media after she attended the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Thursday. Milano attended the hearing as a guest of Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein, wearing a black pinstriped dress, which, as USA Today noted, “some deemed ‘disrespectful’ and ‘revealing.’”

    After the nation was riveted by the Senate testimony of Anita Hill and Clarence Thomas, the Supreme Court nomination came to a vote. Democrats controlled the Senate. Joe Biden had chaired the hearings. And yet Thomas was confirmed, with 11 Democrats joining 41 Republicans to provide the margin of victory (and two Republicans voting against him). That would be inconceivable today. The hyperpartisan nature of today’s politics would never allow so many Democrats to defect in favor of a Republican president's nominee, one who was not only extremely conservative but had faced a last-minute accusation of sexual harassment.

    I've seen my share of deception and chicanery from politicians in my thankfully brief time on this earth. And sure, I expected dumb hatchet jobs and pointless grandstanding in reaction to something as big as an open Supreme Court seat. But this tweet from California Senator Kamala Harris really takes the cake.

    Washington Times ^ | 9/6/18 | Douglas Ernst
    Sen. Cory Booker claimed Thursday that a journalist with The Wall Street Journal was violating the Constitution by asking him a question regarding his failed “Spartacus” moment before the Senate Judiciary Committee. The New Jersey lawmaker who made national headlines with his assertion that he was releasing confidential documents on Judge Brett Kavanaugh (which turned out not to be confidential), was in no mood to answer Byron Tau’s questions on it. Mr. Booker seemingly referenced a Speech or Debate Clause of the Constitution to dodge a question on political theatrics. “Democrats knew full well that the documents that Booker and...

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (Screen Capture) (CNSNews.com) - At her Thursday press briefing, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi presented a list of issues and groups of people she believes will be “on the chopping block” if the Senate confirms Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. “If Judge Kavanaugh is confirmed, Roe v. Wade, affordable health care, voting rights, common-sense gun violence prevention, freedoms of LGBTQ Americans, communities of colors and immigrants are all on the chopping block, just to name a few,” Pelosi said. “And if he doesn't believe in stare decisis as...

    Democrats have spent the week trying to catch Judge Brett Kavanaugh in a lie and employ old emails to cast him as a radical conservative. But as Kavanaugh’s chaotic confirmation hearing winds down Friday, Republicans say they believe Democrats failed to land the kind of fatal blow that could derail the nomination. The office of Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, said in a statement that Democrats struggled “to make a legitimate case” against Kavanaugh after two days of questioning. “At the end of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s second day of questioning, Senate Democrats still haven’t...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Thursday he expects Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh will be on the bench by the court’s first day in October. Mr. McConnell sang Judge Kavanaugh’s praises during an interview with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt, and said he expects him to be confirmed before September ends. “I think any doubts anybody might have had have been dispelled by his virtuoso performance before the Judiciary Committee,” he said. “I mean, it’s stunning. He’s just a stellar nomination in every respect.” Mr. McConnell did weigh in on the dramatic show made by Sen. Cory...

    Conservative commentator Ann Coulter on Thursday mocked Democratic Sens. Cory Booker (N.J.) and Kamala Harris (Calif.), accusing them of "competing for Most Hysterical Woman" at confirmation hearings for President Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. "Cory Booker & Kamala Harris competing for Most Hysterical Woman at the Kavanaugh hearings" Coulter wrote in a tweet that was retweeted more than 11,000 times and liked more than 33,000 times as of Thursday afternoon. Harris and Booker, both considered 2020 Democratic presidential contenders in what will likely be a crowded field, said during Judicial Committee hearings that Kavanaugh would serve as a rubber...

Cory Booker published Thursday morning in supposed defiance of Senate rules had already been cleared for release. “All of this drama this morning apparently was for nothing and it’s unfortunate,” Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, told reporters after a chaotic start to the third day of Kavanaugh’s hearing.

    In his opening statement at Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearing, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, called out the Democrats for their clownish obstruction tactics, accusing them of trying to “reverse” the 2016 presidential election by sinking President Trump’s nominee.“I’m sorry that your daughters had to endure the political circus of this morning,” Cruz told Kavanaugh as he began. Earlier, Senate Democrats refused to let the hearing proceedings begin, interrupting Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, numerous times and motioning to adjourn. Nearly two dozen Women’s March protesters were arrested for disrupting the hearing. Cruz accused the Democrats in the...

    The Senate Judiciary Committee hearing for Judge Brett Kavanaugh will be cut short Wednesday, after Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., blocked Republican efforts to keep questioning the nominee until late in the day. Schumer objected to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s request for the committee to continue meeting after 2 p.m., meaning the Supreme Court confirmation hearings could bleed into next week. The move is the latest clash between the parties in what has been a contentious hearing process.

    Democrats are pushing California Senator Kamala Harris for president. She’s not the brightest bulb in the tent. On Thursday Harris grilled Judge Brett Kavanaugh for 7 minutes on Robert Mueller and the law firm Kasowitz Benson Torres law firm. Kamla Harris wanted to know if Judge Kavanaugh ever spoke with someone at Kasowitz Benson Torres law firm or anyone at the firm about the Mueller special counsel. After being asked about Bob Mueller Kavanaugh replied, “You ask if I ever had a discussion about Bob Mueller, I used to work in the administration with Bob Mueller.” Oomf. That didn’t turn...

    Yet another aging Democrat put on a nationally-televised demonstration of the need for Congressional term limits. Watch as 78-year-old Patrick Leahy makes reference to an email that doesn’t actually exist. Senator Leahy attempts to insinuate the email in question was stolen from him SIXTEEN YEARS AGO as nearly everyone in the hearing room, including Leahy’s own staff, look on increasingly confused as to what the senator is talking about. For his part, Judge Kavanaugh shows a remarkable degree of patience while also managing to entrap the senator in his own confused lie. From there a badly beaten Leahy makes a...
