The democrats of the Washington DC swamp are out in full force today, angry again that President Trump is winning with such hearty strides.
Today marks the beginning of the confirmation process for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, a man who should be breezing through the proceedings without much of an issue. Of course, the “resistance” minded left is still up in arms over the 2016 election, knowing full well that Hillary Clinton would have been making these appointments in the absence of a President Trump. Now they are doing everything in their power to bring the Kavanaugh confirmation into chaos using the most childish antics imaginable.
Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearing turned into a political spectacle within moments of Tuesday’s kickoff, as top Democrats tried to overtake the session with a rapid-fire string of objections and protesters shouted and screamed from the audience.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, was able to deliver his opening remarks for only a few seconds before Democratic California Sen. Kamala Harris raised objections to the committee just receiving a batch of 42,000 documents relating to the nominee’s work with past administrations.
“We cannot possibly move forward,” Harris, a potential 2020 Democratic presidential contender, said.
Harris’ outburst seemed to make no sense, primarily, and Grassley was quick to button her up.
Grassley told her she was “out of order,” but other Democrats chimed in to back up Harris, including Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., who moved to adjourn.
This prompted applause from some in the audience, and touched off protests and shouting. Then, after New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker added his voice complaining of a “rush,” Grassley countered:
“I think you are taking advantage of my decency and my integrity,” Grassley said.
We will certainly be hearing more from Capitol Hill regarding the hearings in the coming hours.
