Well, Mr. Grassley, using the standard set by your party’s leader, this hearing should be continued for at least a year.
“93% of Kavanaugh’s record...has not been provided to the Senate.”
Hirono says it’s unprecedented that Democrats have had to pre-clear questions or videos.
Grassley says it doesn’t apply when not in executive session.
Again, yelling is heard from the gallery. Lots of it, over top of Grassley.
40,000+ were dumped on them last night. It’s not expediency, it’s about the laws of physics—the time to read them.
He tells her to wait until he’s done (he wanted to read a prepared response to Leahy’s commentary).
Grassley then continued to mischaracterize Leahy’s past remarks. Leahy is pissed.
“This is hearing about who will sit on the highest court of our land.”
It’s about, “due process and TRANSPARENCY,” that’s why we have public court hearings.
Also, Rule 4 has, “no requirement that we be in executive session.”
More voices being raised in protest. Women have had enough of Grassley’s shit.
Gallery members continue to voice protests over his monologue.
"We make up 4% of the worldwide population, but own 42% of the world's guns."
He's continuing to "create a narrative" folks.
Hatch refers to the protesters as exhibiting insolence.
Booker: "We wouldn't hire an intern with 90% of their resume missing."
Senator Hatch said a short time ago that "we will confirm" Kavanaugh.
Not one Democratic member of this committee has stated that they won't confirm Kavanaugh.
So, who's made up their mind?
I see some men in the crowd. Why are they keeping their powder dry? Do they lack the testicular fortitude to speak up?
A woman before and after him escorted out by police as well.
MERRICK GARLAND, YOU ASS.
It is noteworthy that no Republican has addressed Democratic concerns; they've only distracted and deflected; in Lee's case, impugning even the confirmation process.
Well, the President did impose one; it is right and just to apply the same logic.
MERRICK FUCKING GARLAND, YOU MESQUITE-SMOKED TESTICULAR LUMP
