Parkland father explains why he approached Kavanaugh at hearing

U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh arrives on the first day of his confirmation hearing in front of the U.S. Senate

Trump also contradicts himself by conceding that Republican Sen.

"We can not possibly move forward", Harris, a potential 2020 Democratic presidential contender, said.

Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley couldn't finish his first sentence before California Democrat Kamala Harris interrupted to demand a hearing delay.

"What are we trying to hide? What are we hiding by not letting these documents come out?" asked Senator Cory Booker.

"[Sen.] John KennedyJohn Neely KennedyMORE (R-La.) asked "is this a concerted strategy, is this a tactic of Senate Democrats to coordinate with the protesters" - the people screaming and yelling and disrupting the hearing. We have not had an opportunity to have a meaningful hearing", said Sen.

Kavanaugh has been a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia since 2006.

"I was just arrested for civil disobedience in the Kavanaugh hearings", wrote Perabo, also known for "Covert Affairs".

Kavanaugh, who serves alongside Garland on the D.C. federal appeals court, spoke highly of his colleague, describing Garland as "superb" in his opening statement. We can't tell if they're going through the histrionic motions or if they might actually try to block a confirmation vote. He was again sitting in the hearing room for the afternoon session.

Senate Democrats staged an aggressive bid Tuesday to slow the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as fury over a selection that could tilt the nation's top bench to the right for a generation exploded on Capitol Hill. They railed against the unusual vetting process by Republicans that failed to include documents from three years Kavanaugh worked in the Bush administration, and 100,000 more pages withheld by the Trump White House.

Kavanaugh sat silently and impassively for most of the day, occasionally sipping water and taking notes on senators' points.

Russia's Putin says killing of Ukraine rebel leader a 'dastardly' crime
However, recent reports suggested that Zakharchenko had fallen out of favour with Russian Federation . Russian-speakers predominate in those regions, and separatist sentiment skyrocketed.

Harvard Law Professor Laurence Tribe, former federal circuit court judge Timothy K. Lewis, and Obama ethics attorney Norman Eisen on Tuesday issued a paper through the Brookings Institute, arguing that Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump's Supreme Court pick, should back down from any case which involves Trump.

During the hearings two starkly different images of Kavanaugh emerged.

The Senate is likely to vote on confirmation by the end of the month.

If all goes according to Republicans' plans, the committee will vote later this month - nearly surely along straight party lines - to send his nomination to the full Senate in hopes of getting him on the court by the October 1 start of the 2018 term.

Kavanaugh said the Supreme Court "must never be viewed as a partisan institution", but Tuesday's hearings suggested that moment had long passed.

"I do not decide cases based on personal or policy preferences". If Kavanaugh, a staunch Republican, is confirmed, he may well tilt the court's ideology right-ward for at least a generation, as he'd replace a man who often acted as a swing vote on landmark decisions. Trump a year ago appointed Justice Neil Gorsuch, part of his push to make the federal judiciary more conservative.

Democrats on the committee complained that hundreds of thousands of pages of documents from Kavanaugh's time in the White House have not been turned over.

Kennedy was a solid conservative but sided with the court's liberals on some issues, including abortion and gay rights.

Kavanaugh sat patiently for almost seven hours, listening to Republican and Democrats speak for and against his joining the court before he finally got his chance to address the panel.
