This is a shit show. And Republicans don't give a fuck. They'll vote Kavanaugh in and laugh as he does the things they want.
Grassley doesn't know who's asking to speak, nor has a grasp of numbers. Geez.
Grassley: You fucking Dems want to follow rules. What a shame!
Can we not talk about Clinton, you all sound like the GOP.
Is Grassley saying that the restricted documents could be harmful to Trump? As in, he might have tried to ascertain just how forcefully Kavanaugh would protect him from impeachment?
They're "sensitive" and "harmful" to the executive branch.
The fuck is wrong with Iowa that they keep electing Grassley?
I know we're all here at this moment in part because of the 2016 election, but let's end the back and forth on Clinton and focus on this hearing. Thank you.
He's 100% getting confirmed. No need to watch this.
- Much later Grassley complains about being accused of holding a mob rule hearing, seemingly forgetting the accusation was from his own side directed towards dems
Elections have consequences. Here's one of the longest lasting ones.
How long are the Democrats going to stall? Can they do this until November? F the way politics work.
Dems just kinda begging the GOP to stop it. Kinda painful to watch.
If the Dems get enough control to impeach and remove Trump they also need to impeach and remove every appointment he had made, including his SCOTUS justices.
The Legislative branch needs to take back some power here.
In case anybody forgets how big of a liar Grassley is.
What could they be trying to hide? What in Kavanaugh's record could be a problem?
Its incredible how much damage they have been able to do in such a short time
Cant bring myself to watch this last blow they deal before being ousted
It’s so great that all of this “outrage” means nothing because nothing is going to be done to stop this confirmation. Good job Dems.
These hearings should be ceremonial in some aspect that the judiciary committee should be reiterating their role, and the role and importance of justices. You should just be able to read a standard statement that can be used for every single nomination, as an opening statement.
Grassley is doing a terrible job of this so far, and now he's bringing up Robert Bork, and op-eds from newspapers. This is bizarre.
Good thing we fast tracked all the federal judicial nominees too. God forbid the dems ever get any leverage.
Ok is he re-reading something he already read?
Diane Feinstein is a really engaging speaker. I have never noticed that before.
This both sides crap rises out of posts like yours, and it's BS
The courts are getting packed anyway
Senator Feinstein calling out his bullshit.
This is unreal. Feinstein dispensing with an opening statement to go directly to Roe V. Wade, where she admits she prosecuted women to prison for having abortions, and seeing the resulting horrendous statistics. Then goes on to establish that based on Kavanaugh's writings, he is willing to set aside precedent. Whew.
This is making me fucking sick.
So there’s no chance on some Republicans voting with the Dems?
There's a much greater chance that vulnerable Democrats will vote to confirm him. Repubs are a lock, every one of them.
