Watch Protesters Swarm Sen. Grassley’s Office Before Kavanaugh Hearing: ‘These Are Fascists’
07 September, 2018, 02:59 | Author: Dwayne Harmon
Sen. Cory Booker, in a volatile exchange during the Senate committee hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, released confidential presidential documents on Tuesday, violating a confidentiality rule and now could be in trouble with his Congressional colleagues.
In the hearing, Booker referenced a handful of documents and emails from Kavanaugh'stime as a White House counsel, during which Kavanaugh discussed racial profiling among other topics.
Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, released more documents Thursday - including those Booker wanted made public - and stood by his handling of Kavanaugh's paper trail. At times, some of these senators were melodramatic: Booker dared Senate Republicans to expel him from the Senate over the document battle, for example. The panel's process resulted in hundreds of thousands of pages of Kavanaugh's documents being withheld as confidential or kept from release under presidential privilege by the Trump White House. However, Booker argued that the documents should not be held as confidential because they did not deal with national security. Trump revives shutdown threat MORE (R-Ky.) recessed the Senate on Thursday after Republicans warned that Democrats could try to use arcane procedure to stop Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court hearing.
Shortly after 1 p.m., it was announced that the restrictions on releasing the emails, which had been labeled "committee confidential", had been waived in the morning.
On Wednesday, Kavanaugh will field questions from Committee members. He also would not say whether he believes a president can be subpoenaed to testify. "If you're coming after @SenBooker for releasing these documents, count me in".
Much like the first day of protests and arrests, which punctuated the senators' partisan quarreling over the nomination, the second day saw more than a dozen protesters hauled out of the hearing room shouting objections to Kavanaugh's nomination. Cory Booker, D-N.J., deliberately violated rules against releasing protected information - risking, in his own estimation, the loss of his position.
Now a judge on the US Court of Appeals for the DC circuit, Kavanaugh, 53, was nominated to the bench by Trump in July to replaced retired Justice Anthony Kennedy.

The third day of the confirmation hearing again was repeatedly interrupted by protesters hostile to Kavanaugh.
The drama surrounding Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings continued on Thursday, as Sen. He also echoed some of what Sasse said about Supreme Court justices not acting based on politics or policy preferences, but on the law, regardless of its outcome. Marc Kasowitz, one of the firm's partners, has long worked with Trump.
"It was a gut punch for me, " he said, and he was "shocked, disappointed, angry".
Asked about that document, Kavanaugh said he suggested the change because he thought the draft language was overstating the thinking of legal scholars at the time.
While Booker has been praised by liberals for releasing the emails, one can't ignore his ulterior motives. Kavanaugh had trouble answering the question, in part because she wouldn't explain who she was referring to, all while hinting strongly she knew something no one else did. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.): "So you're saying 'no, ' you've had no discussion, you haven't talked to anyone in the White House about Robert Mueller or the special counsel investigation?"
Kavanaugh eventually said he couldn't think of any such conversations but would need to see a list of the firm's lawyers.
