Kavanugh coming across REALLY STUPID! CANT UNDERSTAND A SIMPLE QUESTION! OBVIOUSLY DIDNT PREPARE FOR THIS HEARING OTHER THAN BEING EVASIVE. STUPID! STUPID! STUPID! IF republicans can't see it then they are stupid too!!!

Kavanaugh, the slimy Pterodactyl looking liar

CarmineFragione · September 7, 2018 at 9:35 pm

Blumenthal tried a couple perjury traps, particular to selective emails , and failed. The venomous prosecutorial "Snake" tried his best, but while Blumenthal is well trained as Judas Goats, Richard is no candidate for elevation to be a Judge on any Court. So Richard Blumenthal has a narrow well of talents, and so he tried his best and was foiled.

This administration is shameless… the republicans and congress show no inclination to follow the law. Now why are the Democrats putting on a show? The e-mails deemed confidential had already been released. Why can’t they ask direct question? Instead of going around the point just ask “have you discussed the Mueller probe with such and such individual?” The reality show the president insists on subjecting us to on a daily basis doesn’t need to extend to a hearing. Somebody please show some professionalism and maturity! Stop the games, they are not amusing.

Lisette V · September 7, 2018 at 9:44 pm

So if Kavanaugh gets confirmed, I have a strong feeling that he will eventually flip on Trump ✌

Ilsa Gomez-Curet · September 7, 2018 at 9:46 pm

They are not pro-life. They are antiabortion. These are very different terms. Nobody in the Trump baby administration is pro-life. One is not pro-life if one only cares about the life of a subset of the population.

A B · September 7, 2018 at 9:48 pm

The left and right are horrible about being honest but the left is reaching like Alex Jones on this one

Cadet Bone Spurs · September 7, 2018 at 9:48 pm

Blumenthal!!! Trying to protect the country and the people. Trying to protect Trump supporters from themselves. You are doing great work Blumenthal!! Thank you.

Box of chocolates · September 7, 2018 at 9:59 pm

What do the other supreme court judges feel about this?

Leeanne Bishop · September 7, 2018 at 10:00 pm

Mmmm i wonder if Kavanaugh is on the take ??????

Leeanne Bishop · September 7, 2018 at 10:03 pm

Thats why put him in duhhhhh so trump gets away with hi crimes

Leeanne Bishop · September 7, 2018 at 10:05 pm

These are the judges that are taking bribes and payoffs ??? you can just tell

196833lwl · September 7, 2018 at 10:14 pm

Republicans are turning a blind eye regardless what Trump says or do even if it's a lie. If they don't back Kavanaugh, they know Trump will be impeached and lose the republican house. It's such a CORRUPT government, full of bullies, money launders, sexual harrasment, the list goes on.

TheDarkleatherbiker · September 7, 2018 at 10:39 pm

Kavanaugh YOU ARE SO BUSTED !!! Even your head turned totally RED…your Body-language tells that you were trying to LIE …We don't even need a lying detector here…you were BUSTED !!! If a Lying detector was necessary, you would most definitely with 110 procent had been BUSTED !!! WELL DONE KAMALA HARRIS !!!!

Junior Harry · September 7, 2018 at 10:50 pm

Hello Mika.👋.
Exceptional reporting, Mika.👍👏👏.
Keep on digging, Mika.👍🐖.

Jonathan K · September 7, 2018 at 11:06 pm

I find it fascinating that John Dean, Nixon's counsel, gave a statement to the committee citing the issues with past nominees who lied during the confirmation hearings, much as Kavanaugh seems to be doing with his evasive tactics..

Derrick Moyer · September 7, 2018 at 11:10 pm

Id rather hear Mika's view than cuckservative joe's

Liberals Suck · September 7, 2018 at 11:37 pm

Disgusting filthy democrats. Kavanaugh is in. Deal with it losers.
Elections have consequences 😂

Randy Donaghy · September 7, 2018 at 11:41 pm

Blumenthal likes to hear himself talk. He is the only one who likes to hear him talk. Look at the state of Connecticut. Lucky to have escaped. Hey Connecticut how much money do you owe me? I'm not talking about the taxes you stole? You know what I'm talking about. You have shown nothing but partisan contempt for this candidate and for the working people. Here's an idea… Fix Connecticut. Stop handing out free rides for people who never intend to work

I Trikke · September 7, 2018 at 11:42 pm

He can not be placed on the court.

I Trikke · September 7, 2018 at 11:43 pm

Fright fight fight like a Republican

John Ramos · September 8, 2018 at 12:08 am

Big snake Trump with little Snake Brett K

justin holmes · September 8, 2018 at 12:11 am

A great example why congressmen and senators need term limits.

Don Lorraine Uckerman · September 8, 2018 at 12:19 am

What kind of a judge believes that anyone is above the law?

ken5336 · September 8, 2018 at 12:22 am

Donnie wants off scott free

jmmacb03 · September 8, 2018 at 12:35 am

The US is the only democracy (Republic) on the planet that appoints Supreme Court justices for LIFE!
That needs to be changed.
Decide that your president CAN NOT pardon himself.
All presidential candidates must submit their taxes,
You need campaign spending and contribution limits and the end of Citizen's United (dark money!!)
And finally another 2 or 3 political parties, We do not live in a world that has binary solutions to complex problems.
Best of luck with your constitutional crisis.

WiredStreet · September 8, 2018 at 12:44 am

He should be Out on this count Alone

Thomas Long · September 8, 2018 at 12:52 am

More larry and Curley. Sad

toad2003 · September 8, 2018 at 1:04 am

Can a Supreme Court judge be removed due to being a part of protecting a sitting president in order to get a seat on the bench?

Max Steel · September 8, 2018 at 1:07 am

You idiots in the media sat there and played along with Trump thinking it was funny. Oh Trump won't get elected. But you morons didn't realize Trump was conspiring with Russia and had illegal meetings with Russians. You sit there act like it won't happen.

Max Steel · September 8, 2018 at 1:09 am

Republicans will break the law or do any dirty thing to get there way. Because it's about them and what they want. It's not about the country. Example why would they do a tax cut they only helped the rich? The needs of the many out way the needs of the few or the one.

Aicha Daillo · September 8, 2018 at 1:25 am

Supreme Court judges can be impeach by Congress so if this guy is personally working for the president he should be impeach when democrats get it back. But like sessions he’ll use trump until he’s hired and then recuse himself , no one will go to jail or risk their career for trump but he still doesn’t get it

Michael Edwards · September 8, 2018 at 1:38 am

This is for everyone. Left, right, middle, or indifferent. The right Control the White house and Senate. Republicans is and will do everything to promote their agenda. Eventhough this presidency has been questionable from the beginning. Something needs to be done. So; be careful for what or who you vote for.

DjCole100 · September 8, 2018 at 2:11 am

When Kavanaugh was asked if a president could pardon himself? he said i can't comment because it's current? it's not in litigation yet… and it can't effect the probable case if your offering an opinion on the subject..

DjCole100 · September 8, 2018 at 2:13 am

If confirmed an investigation needs to take place on Kavanaugh and possible impeachment…

Marilyn mc · September 8, 2018 at 2:19 am

This is stupid, he simply stated that he didn't know every person that works at the firm, so he could not answer the question. And you knew that he had to know who works there to be able to answer honestly. So rather than providing him an employee list you try to trick the viewers into believing something was nafarious.

RedWave Walkaway · September 8, 2018 at 2:33 am

Ruth Ginsberg, it's time to retire. bye bye. go to the beach, enjoy your life. we're cleaning house in the supreme court.

Jose Salas · September 8, 2018 at 3:59 am

Trump still winning

Richie Rich · September 8, 2018 at 4:07 am

Nothing matters the 1% pigs are in control of 'We The People' Government. The soulless traitors in Congress are working for their donors, the 1% Pigs; will install their corporate owned judge to the highest court in the land. Now bow down to your lords and masters, take your mark. Still haven't figured it out? The blind leading the blind, enjoy The Last Days! Traitors, for MONEY! God Bless The Gentiles; citizens united, the 1% Pigs.
The Biggest Distraction Yet To Come, For those whose eyes are opened….
And you thought this traitor drumpf worked for you, lol! He is the soulless 1% PIGS, token puppet. So where are the patriotic republicans? There are none, all have long bowed down to their lord and masters, the 1% PIGS! They keep you busy attacking those weaker than you. Simply because you are nothing more than their human livestock, to use as they wish. The corporate soulless 1% traitorous pigs have dumb down the public so much that now their only concern is, Reality TV & Reality Politics!
Hey Gentiles, the garbage of man has taken over; it is their time. The greedy, filthy, soulless 1% pigs are part of the corporate scum that have stolen our country. Remember the words… Choose. Choose the form of the Destructor! Goats, don't you know who you are? You chose drumpf the orange orangutan. POS drumpf was given the keys to the bottomless pit and with them was allowed to drain the swamp. Which allowed the filth of man to climb up out of it, called citizens united. As your democracy is now dead, bow down to your Lords and Masters the 1%, citizens united the filth of man. Is anyone still questioning who these traitors are?

Jay James · September 8, 2018 at 4:47 am

Kavanaugh is a liar and crooked. He has done things that should be grounds for impeached from his current position. Let alone get a lifetime position. He will stain the Court and be a reminder that republicans own this !

Robin Fleet · September 8, 2018 at 5:01 am

The constitution's framers never wanted a "king" in power. That is why there is a profound division of power that requires consensus to achieve anything.

berserker · September 8, 2018 at 5:09 am
