The demonrats are not working for their constituency they are working for a $oros payday.

Graham seems to be getting better, growing a backbone.

Jay Hartbarger · September 10, 2018 at 3:37 am

OMG. I read these comments. So full of hate and anger and ignorance. There is no hope for us.

Rich white men think that Kavanaugh is great. I think Kavanaugh is worthless but I think all rich white men are worthless.

Obama used to be good at covering up his lies… not anymore!

Obama’s speech is so ironic

It's the Alinsky method. Keep a negative out there even if it is a lie.

First of all I have to call a spade a spade. Obamas head is stuck so far up his ass he can't see daylight anymore. The only people against Trump are those that are being paid off by George Soros. Those are the misfits who can't seem to make a living and feed themselves so they become activists. It is all a house of cards which will eventually crumble and fall.

2 weeks at the least. congress has 2 weeks to come to a dissension in the senate. after that if one party presents a filibusterer then it could take up to one year. depending on how willing one party is willing to talk forever on the floor. EDIT
But then there is the Nuclear option of which the Democrat party first introduced in January of 2016 to obstruct constitutional law of congress. how ever now the republican party is now enjoining the 51% vote mandate created by the Democrat party line..

I have such a new find liking in LINDSAY GRAHAM. He hit this right on the nose. He sees right thru the BULLSHIT!!!!

MWcrazyhorse · September 10, 2018 at 5:46 am

No Lindsey. We do not need a special council. We have military tribunals, gitmo and prisons.

Warren C · September 10, 2018 at 6:19 am

Every Republican need's to get out and vote in November! As we need to prevent the Democrats from taking either the House or Senate majority in Congress!

Lee Grove · September 10, 2018 at 6:24 am

Hussein knows he's about to be under indictment. Simple. He won't be the only actor to end up in prison.

Jay Vieira · September 10, 2018 at 6:44 am

Let's not forget this donkey opposed Trump from the beginning. His constituents love Trump so he's singing Trump's praises now.

Feral Vicar · September 10, 2018 at 6:46 am

When will Lindsey Graham finally come out of the closet?

World's Netizen · September 10, 2018 at 7:25 am

It's a joke for a lifetime judge who might work in the supreme court for at least 50 years didn't answer any hypothetical question in his/her confirmation hearings. Sounds like he's more fit for working in the past 50 years, not in the future. Coz we are living in a more and more fast pacing changing/developing world, the questions of the past and present most likely do not fully represent what we will be faced in the future. Say, cyberspace security problems, personal activities on social media platforms, such as Alex Jones and people died because of internet-bully, or some sort of problems about ai, robots. Not to mention, he did dodge and ambiguous answer some sensitive questions about Trump.

people say that "it's not as answering a hypothetical could cause perceived biases in the future by plaintiffs."

the thing is "hypothetical' means it can't be certain at the time, but the possibility can't be excluded just because of 'hypothetical'. It means neither it is false nor true at the point. so how can a nominee avoid the responsibility to answer the question if people really want to utilize the hearing as a probing tool to know the nominee's believes/thoughts/principals on issues people concerned?
When it comes to biases, it has nothing to do with hypothetical or not. As I pointed out hypothetical means uncertain or possibility. Biases could come from both the real and hypothetical case. There was a movie named 12 Angry Men, dramatically demonstrated how people generated their biases, no hypothetical factors at all.

So there is no rational reason to avoid hypothetical questions because of avoiding biases in the future. Sure hypothetical question could be a source of biases like real case, but it could help for some case that has never been seen before, such as internet interference in the 2016 election. More importantly, it's presumption of guilt on all hypothetical questions, which is apparently unreasonable and unfair.

Meanwhile, during the hearing, the nominee demonstrated how great memory he has and then a senator asked a yes or no question on whether he talked to anyone about a hot topic in his specialized field. It isn't too hard for anyone to answer yes or no as if one has no special connection with the topic. obviously, it cost the nominee a relatively long time to respond the simple question.

Not to mention republicans declassify the documents at 4AM on the day of the confirmation hearing regardless they have the majority in the house. And there are so many other contradictions and questionable points that people pointed out already.

The conclusion is that this is an abnormal nominee at an abnormal confirmation hearing in an abnormal POTUS' era, which people should be aware of.

Why waste the time..just do the vote. Stop wasting tax money..obama is a liar..

GMP · September 10, 2018 at 7:28 am

Yeah . . . . . GO GO GO GONE . . . . NO MORE TRUMP!

Brian M · September 10, 2018 at 7:32 am

I think the documents will be declassified by the President at the correct time, a little bit closer to the midterms to give maximum damage to the Democratic Socialist party.
