THE LATEST: Senate Democrats Walk Out of Kavanaugh Vote in Protest

Originally published at:

At least four Democrat members of the Senate Judiciary Committee abruptly walked-out of Friday’s hearings surrounding Judge Brett Kavanaugh; raising the likelihood of a purely partisan vote to endorse the potential Supreme Court Justice.

According to the Hill, Sens. Whitehouse, Blumenthal, Hirono, and Harris suddenly departed the room just moments after Chairman Chuck Grassley officially opened the hearing.

The Committee has scheduled a 1:30pm vote on Kavanaugh.

“I strongly object. This is just totally ridiculous. What a railroad job. My answer is no, no, no!” yelled Sen. Hirono as she left the room.
