Sen. Mark Warner to vote against Brett Kavanaugh confirmation

Supreme Court nominee steers clear of Trump criticism

"Many Democrats on the Senate judiciary committee embarrassed themselves".

Republicans hold a 51-49 majority in the Senate.

Kavanaugh replied: "I can't give you an answer on that hypothetical question". He told lawmakers that the high court with Kavanaugh on it would be "the most presidential powers-friendly court in the modern era".

If Collins votes yes, then he is likely confirmed. He was asked the same question during his 2004 and 2006 confirmation hearings for lower court appointments. "I have always waited until hearings are done and until I have reviewed the paperwork and cases, et cetera".

U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh stressed on Thursday that he believes the judiciary has broad authority to check the power of the White House, but refused to criticize the man who selected him, President Donald Trump. Lachance, 15, who suffers from asthma, testified about asthma rates in ME that are higher than the national average and how air pollution affects an asthma sufferer.

Kavanaugh is a conservative who could tip the court's balance for a generation.

"Roe v. Wade is an important precedent of the Supreme Court".

"He often describes Roe as precedent upon precedent", Collins said.

Sasse has been a long-time supporter of Trump's selection of Kavanaugh as the next Supreme Court justice. "If you look at how much a part of our society Roe is you could argue it would be very hard to overturn", Collins said. Republicans hope the full Senate can vote on the nomination close to the time the Supreme Court's new term starts on Oct 1.

Miranda was a Republican Senate aide in the early 2000s, during the George W. Bush administration.

"I am right now, before your process is finished, I am going to release the email about racial profiling, and I understand the penalty comes with potential ousting from the Senate", the New Jersey Democrat said, later adding that he was "knowingly violating the rules". Kavanaugh said he hadn't.

She accused the Senate Republican majority and Kavanaugh of "deliberately concealing his record from the American people". "That doesn't mean Roe v. Wade doesn't have any complexities", Sasse said.

"It could be whittled away to the point of being rendered a hollow shell", King said.

In addition to the special counsel, Kavanaugh's views on executive authority were a constant focus throughout the hearings.

Trump picked Kavanaugh, 53, to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, who announced his retirement in June.

He was threatened with penalties last week, including possible expulsion from the Senate for breaking rules and questioning Kavanaugh about emails the nominee had written that had not been properly released. They've paraded their personal legislative hobby horses before the cameras, suggesting that it's the role of a Supreme Court justice to craft legislation from the bench.

In Kavanaugh, we have a nominee that is every bit as much of a right-wing ideologue as Bork and every bit as much of an apparatchik as Miers (indeed, Kavanaugh succeeded her as Bush's staff secretary and both worked in the office of the White House counsel).

"It all seemed consistent with the usual kinds of discussions that happen and sometimes people do say things of 'here's what my boss is thinking, but don't share it around, '" Kavanaugh said.

"During his time on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, Mr. Kavanaugh has repeatedly struck down other Clean Air Act protections".

Graham pressed the issue, and Kavanaugh responded that the Supreme Court applied the liberty clause in its decisions regarding abortion: "The Supreme Court has found it under the liberty clause but you're right".
