Brett Kavanaugh Senate confirmation hearings for U.S. Supreme Court

Category: Other,Video News

The second day of confirmation hearings is underway for President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh after a contentious first day full of protests and heated disagreements between senators. The most important seat on the high court is up for grabs after Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement. Democrats urged that confirmation proceedings be delayed, and a steady string of protesters shouting epithets had to be pulled from the room. The hearing for President Donald Trump's nominee was so tumultuous at times that Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, the second-ranking Senate Republican, labeled it "mob rule" and "unlike anything I’ve seen before in a confirmation hearing." Kavanaugh, 53, a federal appeals court judge who worked in the White House for President George W. Bush and helped investigate President Bill Clinton, sat dispassionately and took notes through more than six hours of speeches from 21 members of the Senate Judiciary Committee. https://usat.ly/2NgMfgZ
