Tuesday, the confirmation hearing of Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court’s seat was met with disruptions and a political resisting circus to disrupt and delay Kavanaugh’s confirmation within the first few minutes of starting.
Top Democrats tried to overtake the session with a rapid-fire string of objections and protesters shouted and screamed from the audience. (Video Below)
Democrats have all the information they need to know about Kavanaugh, but they refuse to let the American people see why Kavanaugh should be elected. They are trying to stop and delay the hearing making up excuses.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley,(R-IA), said he and his staff were “available 24/7” to help Democrats access Judge Kavanaugh’s records, but “not one senator showed up.”
During the beginning of the hearing, chaos led Republican Sen. John Cornyn to remark, “This is the first confirmation hearing subject to mob rule.”
Grassley 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. (Video Below)
“We cannot possibly move forward,” Harris said.
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.
Applause came next from some in the audience, then led to numerous protests and shouting in the hearing room. (Video Below)
After New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker complained of a “rush,” Grassley countered: “I think you are taking advantage of my decency and my integrity,” Grassley said.
Grassley rejected the protests, saying there will be “plenty of opportunities” to respond to the Democrats’ complaints and said he would “proceed accordingly.”
“We have said for a long period of time that we were going to proceed on this very day and I think we ought to give the American people the opportunity to hear whether judge Kavanaugh should be on the Supreme Court or not,” Grassley said.
Texas Sen. Cornyn suggested Democrats would be “held in contempt of court” if they behaved that way in a court of law. (Video Below)
We have rules in the Senate,” Cornyn said. “We have norms for decorum. Everybody as you pointed out will get a chance to have their say.”
Grassley called for “proper respect and decorum.” He added, “This is something I’ve never gone through before in 15 Supreme Court nominations.”
As the Democrats continued to reject the delay of Kavanaugh’s hearing, Grassley finally had enough and said, “This is the same Chuck Grassley that ran the Gorsuch hearing. I’d like to run this hearing the same way if you’ll give me the courtesy of doing it.”

Democrats are out of control. They are unhinged that President Donald J. Trump is nominating to put a Judge on the Supreme Court. Complete resistance.
