Booker to headline Iowa Democratic banquet in October

A newly disclosed email revealed that President Donald Trump's pick once suggested Roe v. Wade was not settled law.

The witty SC senator, who's usually more entertaining than most comedians, has been one of the highlights of the otherwise depressing televised Senate confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

"I always wait until after the hearings are complete before making a decision, and I'll do so in this case as well", she said in an interview. It had been held by the committee as confidential. The document is partially redacted.

The committee's top Democrat, Dianne Feinstein, sought assurances that the nominee views as settled law the Supreme Court's landmark 1973 decision, Roe v.

Eastman said he suspects that is the biggest concern among Democrats.

There's no indication at this point that anything Booker has, or will, release on Kavanaugh will move the needle one way or the other on his confirmation, which still appears relatively safe in the Republican-controlled Senate.

Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) followed up by asking Eastmond what p0licies she would like to see enacted - again, highlighting how far off-track these hearings have gone.

Booker released confidential White House emails pertaining to Kavanaugh. Cornyn said it was "irresponsible and conduct unbecoming a senator". That's because President George W. Bush's records representative, Bill Burck, quickly released a statement to Fox News saying they were "surprised to learn" about Booker's "histrionics" because "we had already told him he could use the documents publicly". He said he was doing so draw attention to Republicans' "sham process". Lisa Murkowski. Confirming a Supreme Court nominee takes just 51 votes and Republicans now hold 51 seats.

Kavanaugh has won support not just from the Right, but from many progressive lawyers, as well.

Last month, Collins voted to preserve funding for Planned Parenthood - a day after the organization rallied in Washington to encourage her to vote against Kavanaugh. A lawyer for former president George W. Bush provided 415,000 pages of documents last week, but the Trump administration chose to withhold 100,000 pages from the Senate under executive privilege.
