Shaheen, Hassan to vote against Kavanaugh's nomination

Fierce document dispute grips Trump Supreme Court pick's hearing

US senator, risking punishment, releases Kavanaugh emails on race

"Should the president's legal team decide, as they have threatened, to contest that principle in court, it is imperative that the Supreme Court ensure that the president is held accountable". Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska).

Collins herself made a similar statement, telling Politico Thursday that while she hadn't yet read the email, "I am told that he was editing an op-ed for clarity and was merely stating a fact that three judges on the court were anti-Roe". I'm obviously glad American's have the right to express their First Amendment views.

Because Republicans went "nuclear" a year ago to nix the 60-vote filibuster for Supreme Court nominees, Kavanaugh will only need a simple majority to get confirmed.

The Maine senator's support of Kavanaugh is seemingly in defiance of her own constituents, 49% of whom do not want her to confirm Kavanaugh.

Auto industry analyst Ed Kim told the Guardian that Trump's tariffs have, effectively, ruined Ford's plan for the Focus . The US has imposed $50 billion worth of tariffs on Chinese goods with another $200 billion in the final stages.

Newly released emails show that while he was working to move through President George W. Bush's judicial nominees in the early 2000s, Kavanaugh received confidential memos, letters, and talking points of Democratic staffers stolen by GOP Senate aide Manuel Miranda.

Though Kavanaugh's nomination will appear on the Judiciary Committee's business meeting on Thursday, Democrats are expected to delay a vote until next week, likely on September 20. Activists have raised almost $400,000 for Collins' opponent in her 2020 re-election campaign if she votes to confirm Kavanaugh; the money will be returned to donors if she votes against his nomination.

Despite concerns by democrats, republicans are predicting Kavanaugh will be confirmed.

Democrats don't have the votes to block President Donald Trump's nominee, but that didn't stop them from putting up a fight at his confirmation hearings.

Donald Trump's visit to Ireland in November cancelled
Mr Varadkar said there is a standing invitation for any U.S. president to come to Ireland and many have in the past. A White House statement had said the Irish visit would "renew the deep and historic ties between our two nations".

On Wednesday, responding to questioning from Feinstein, Kavanaugh called Roe "an important precedent of the Supreme Court that has been reaffirmed many times".

"I am right now, before your process is finished, I am going to release the email about racial profiling, and I understand the penalty comes with potential ousting from the Senate", the New Jersey Democrat said, later adding that he was "knowingly violating the rules".

The four-day Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Kavanaugh was targeted for "creative resistance" by liberal activist groups attempting to disrupt the proceedings.

"Although [Kavanaugh] claims to follow precedent, his actual decisions reveal a deep skepticism of the principles and values that animate these precedents", Murray's testimony noted.
