Cory Booker Releases Racial Profiling Information on Brett Kavanaugh

The piece was written in response to the Supreme Court case Rice v. Cayetano, in which the Supreme Court ruled that excluding voters because they are not Hawaiian violated the 14th and 15th amendments. Add Supreme Court as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Supreme Court news, video, and analysis from ABC News. Indeed, Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn read aloud rules stating that a senator who divulges "the secret or confidential business" of the Senate faces expulsion, reports the Washington Post.

Booker said that he was "knowingly violating the rules" of the Senate and releasing documents that were only made available to senators this week, just before the hearings started.

A contentious day one confirmation hearing for Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump's pick to fill a Supreme Court opening.

The session quickly descended into turmoil with Democratic senators interrupting the Judiciary Committee's Republican chairman Chuck Grassley at the outset of the hearing and dozens of shouting protesters removed one by one by security personnel.

The tussle over Dems' promise to release the documents in question - which they had questioned Kavanaugh about on Wednesday, to the dismay of Republicans - took up almost an hour of the beginning of Thursday's confirmation hearing.

Cory Booker escalated Democratic protests over hidden documents involving Brett Kavanaugh. Lee complained that Booker was relying on an unreleased email to question Kavanaugh's openness to racial profiling by police, but then agreed to work for its release. "I come from a long line, as all of us do as Americans, of understanding what that kind of civil disobedience is, and I understand the consequences".

"Bring it", said Sen.

"I am concerned because there is evidence that Mr. Miranda provided you with materials that were stolen from me and that would contradict your prior testimony", Leahy said. "In that article, you said that a president should not be subject to investigations while in office".

Yesterday, Senator Kamala Harris spent several minutes interrogating Kavanaugh on a similar point.

However, Dick Durbin, the number two Democrat in the Senate, immediately spoke in solidarity with Booker.

Soon after that, Williams went from trailing, 4-2, to not only taking the first set but also leading, 4-0, in the second. The players put on courageous faces, but it certainly seemed that the conditions ruined a potentially grand occasion.

But a spokesman for McConnell said the GOP leader did not recess the Senate to avoid Democrats' procedural maneuvering.

In the hearing, Booker referenced a handful of documents and emails from Kavanaugh's time as a White House counsel, during which Kavanaugh discussed racial profiling among other topics. Orrin Hatch of Utah, Kavanaugh denied he was questioning Roe as settled law.

He did call Roe v. Wade an "important precedent" that has "been reaffirmed many times over the past 45 years".

House members don't get to vote on Kavanaugh, but Richmond plans to testify about Kavanaugh as an outside witness on Friday, the final day of confirmation hearings.

The left has questioned Kavanaugh's views on abortion and whether he'd protect a woman's right to choose as part of their campaign to block his nomination to the highest court.

"Have you had a conversation with anyone at that firm about that investigation?" "I've never given anyone any hints, forecasts, previews, winks, nothing about my view as a judge or how I would rule as a judge or anything related to that", he said.

Pressured by Democrats with Trump on their minds during Wednesday's grueling session, the judge insisted that he fully embraced the importance of judicial independence. He added that he would need to see a list of the firm's lawyers.

"I don't really understand their level of outrage when they had already made clear they were going to vote against any nominee that the President put forward", Collins told CNN, echoing Republican criticism of their Democratic counterparts.

In other words, Kavanaugh dodged the question by simply describing the caselaw. Please refresh for updates.
