Putin 'ultimately' responsible for United Kingdom spy poisoning

Putin 'ultimately' responsible for United Kingdom spy poisoning

Unfazed, Booker responded, "Apply the rule and bring the charges".

Cornyn said he hoped Booker "will reconsider his decision, because no senator deserve to sit on this committee or serve in the Senate, in my view, if they decide to be a law unto themselves and willingly flout the rules of the Senate".

The document in dispute was a 2002 Kavanaugh email with the subject line "racial profiling" that includes internal White House discussions about whether airport security and other law enforcement should strive for a "race-neutral" system in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks. He also has refused to provide direct answers to Democrats who wanted him to say whether there are limits on a president's power to issue pardons, including to himself or in exchange for a bribe. Cory Booker created buzz by saying he was poised to release confidential documents about Kavanaugh even if he risked being penalized for doing so.

Mrs May said the two suspects flew into the United Kingdom to murder the Skripals at the direction of the GRU, but stopped short of explicitly blaming Putin.

Leahy continued to push Kavanaugh on this, saying he could not fathom how clear references to secret reconnaissance in the emails did not make Kavanaugh suspect something improper. The witnesses included Rochelle Garza, the legal guardian for a pregnant immigrant teenager whose quest for an abortion Kavanaugh would have delayed past year.

"I completely agree with you". Dick Durbin, D-Ill., said.

On Thursday, another possible 2020 Democratic contender, New Jersey Sen.

Kavanaugh will field a second, shorter round of questions from members of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

Kavanaugh appeared confused by the question.

The email shows Mr Kavanaugh considering an opinion piece which states "it is widely accepted by legal scholars across the board that Roe v Wade and its progeny are the settled law of the land", referring to the landmark ruling that legalised abortion in the US.

Later in the day, Republicans said all the documents that Democrats had requested to be relieved of the "Committee Confidential" designation had, in fact, already been approved to be made public before Thursday's hearing began - suggesting that Democrats had been grandstanding. He highlighted the 1992 Planned Parenthood v. Casey ruling that reaffirmed Roe, calling it a "precedent on precedent". Democrats are concerned that Kavanaugh would side with the president in cases stemming from special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Kavanaugh eventually said he couldn't think of any such conversations but would need to see a list of the firm's lawyers. "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". After a 12-hour session Wednesday and more questioning Thursday, he did not seem to have changed minds on the committee, which is basically split along partisan lines. While saying he didn't know everyone who worked at the Kasowitz firm, he added, "I don't recall any conversations of that kind", meaning conversations about Mueller's Russian Federation investigation.

Harris fired back, "I think you are thinking of someone, and you don't want to tell us".

Kavanaugh told Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, he had been unaware of the domestic violence allegations against Rob Porter, who was Trump's staff secretary, until they were publicly disclosed.
