One and only Kavenaugh Hearings Thread


#435

Leahy screwed that up yesterday. The email chain doesn’t say what he claims.


#436

Ahh gotcha, thought that was today. Guess the Booker thing is.


#437

I didn’t hear about Booker. So now they’re trying to paint Kavanaugh as a racist?


#438

From the article:

“A statute might designate all future Supreme Court seats as 18-year terms, with justices sitting on the court by designation, followed by life tenure on the lower federal bench. The vagaries of justices’ deaths and retirements should not throw American democracy into tumult,” they write."

Seriously? The Constitution says they are appointed to a term of good behavior. You can’t overturn the Constitution with a statute.


#439

An Amendment is not a statute?


#440

No idea, not been following any of this until now. Assumed he was a pretty safe pick.

Booker is running, so i’m sure he’s going to make the most of whatevers there.


#441

There is a problem with term limits I think they’re over looking.

I think it would speed up the activism. Rush to leave a legacy.


#442

Ah here we go.


#443

Nor is a pig a horse.


#444

After Garland, there is no “safe pick.” This isn’t about Kavanaugh.

Lycurgus the Law Giver nor Lady Justice herself wouldn’t be a safe pick in that toxic cesspool.

The 17th Amendment coming home to roost. #Resist!


#445

I mean safe as in a sure-thing. The noise is very much expected, given that both Booker and Harris are undoubtedly both going to run and given the current ongoing political environment. They have to be shrill or the base will punish them.

Whackier than usual right now.


#446

Ok, if you say so. Might want to look that up.


#447

So do I.

It’s going to get worse and won’t get better.


#448

Probably.

:popcorn:.


#449

Hearing is nuts right now.


#450

The trend is clear. I can’t wait.


#451

Booker is making it about him. Well done. Kavanaugh just sitting there.


#452

Booker will scream racism if they do anything to him.


#453

till, his email stops short of saying whether he personally believed that the abortion rights precedent should be considered a settled legal issue.

Whoopos. He was making a legal document he was hired to do, and it didn’t say it was his personal opinion.


#454

Kamala Harris asked him if he had ever talked to someone working with a particular law firm about Mueller or the investigation.
Kavanaugh answered that there were many law firms in Washington and he often didn’t know which firm a lawyers was with. He said that if she would give him a particular persons name then he would try to answer.
This Kamala wouldn’t do but got all upset while the protestors were yelling “Answer the question”.
That was such a pathetic attempt to trap him into saying something that she could later prove as false. Couldn’t she even try being a little more subtle?
