Booker struck a defiant tone this week as a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee in declaring his willingness to face expulsion from the Senate by releasing an email from Kavanaugh about racial profiling written during his time as a top White House aide to President George W. Bush. "If that's the case then, and it's not expressing his view, then I'm not sure what the point is".
In addition to generating an even more unhinged spectacle of hysteria during the confirmation process, another originalist judge on the bench would allow some of the Supreme Court's most egregious decisions - like Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion nationwide - to finally be dealt with. The nomination is expected to be reported out of committee along party lines. The document was partially redacted.
Abortion was another main focus throughout the hearing, with Democrats portraying Kavanaugh as a judge who might vote to undercut or overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision establishing a constitutional right.
In an interview with The Daily Caller on Tuesday, President Trump said, "I don't know why they don't take care of a situation like that because it's awful".
Kavanaugh never lost his cool, even as several Democratic senators engaged in political grandstanding to please their most radical supporters.
The group said it would file a similar complaint with the clerk for D.C. Circuit Court Chief Judge Merrick Garland, whom former President Barack Obama nominated to the Supreme Court in 2016 to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia. When Sen. Richard Blumenthal of CT invited him to denounce Trump's criticism of federal judges, the nominee demurred.
Greg Moore, the New Hampshire Director of Americans for Prosperity, said Kavanaugh was confirmed to the federal bench with bipartisan support and accused the senators of "openly playing politics with opposition to a well-qualified candidate".
Earlier, he said his 12-year record as an appellate judge shows that he has not been afraid to invalidate executive branch actions.
The latter group included a woman from IN who made the farcical claim that the ability of women to get birth control would virtually disappear if Kavanaugh is confirmed, and a 15-year old (one of three teenagers to testify against the nominee, remarkably) who complained about Kavanaugh's decisions on environmental issues. Kavanaugh said that he has made clear that a court order "that requires a president to do something or prohibits a president from doing something ... is the final word in our system". The firm in question was founded by Marc Kasowitz, who has represented Trump.
"I agree with that position; I think the honorable thing to do is to resign and to go public with the author's concerns about the president's fitness to serve", Coons said.
On a separate track, Sen.
Abortion advocates and Senate Democrats, however, weren't convinced by Kavanaugh's testimony, in which he also falsely described birth control pills as "abortion-inducing drugs".

Booker was supported by Democratic Sens. Senators like New Jersey's Cory booker and California's Kamala Harris used the platform of the hearings to push Kavanaugh on a number of issues.
A Judiciary Committee spokesperson told Fox News late Thursday that at least some of the emails Booker had released were still "committee confidential" when he published them hours earlier, suggesting Booker had, in fact, violated Senate rules, although Republicans confirmed earlier in the day that they had cleared numerous documents for public release the night before Booker posted them on Twitter.
"We were surprised to learn about Senator Booker's histrionics this morning because we had already told him he could use the documents publicly".
The document battle stemmed from Kavanaugh's unusually long paper trail following his years in the Bush White House.
The last talks, between mid-level United States and Chinese officials on 22 and 23 August, failed to reach any agreement. Such a meeting could take place in Washington or Beijing, though the timing is unclear, according to informed sources.
