  • Sen. Susan Collins arrives at the Kennedy Center for a tribute concert for Sen. Edward Kennedy on Mar. 8 2009 in Washington DC

Sen. Collins vows she won't be persuaded by the campaign to impact her vote, amid an ongoing crowdfunding scheme against her, TheBlaze reported on Tuesday.

A photo of Kavanaugh appearing to refuse to shake Fred Guttenberg's outstretched hand last week went viral.

Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) took to Twitter to call on Democrats to condemn "attempts to bribe" Sen. However, Kavanaugh's opponents are still hoping that a handful of swing votes-namely, Maine's Susan Collins and Alaska's Lisa Murkowski on the Republican side, along with some Blue Dog Democrats-will sink the nomination just as the American Health Care Act (one of the GOP bills for overturning the Affordable Care Act) was sunk in 2017. "I unfortunately did not realize that the man was the father of a shooting victim from Parkland, Florida". Cory Booker (D-N.J.) late Wednesday made public 50 more pages of material that add to the mountain of evidence suggesting Kavanaugh has committed perjury. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee.

The 28 new "committee confidential" documents from Booker are from Kavanaugh's time in the White House counsel's office during the George W. Bush administration and show his involvement in judicial nominations, including for some of the more controversial judges of the era. Booker did so during the confirmation hearing for Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

The Boston Globe said in an editorial yesterday: "Kavanaugh's obvious hostility to abortion rights is alarming".

"Will the Senate assert the rule of law in the Booker case or allow mob rule to be the new standard?" Feinstein and her fellow Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee then made the referral to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, according to a report by BuzzFeed News.

It sounds like Petrillo approached Meghan and engaged her, 'cause she notes in her tweet that she "couldn't have been sweeter". We know she's already got a beagle named Guy, but he looks vastly different than this pooch.

Judicial Crisis Network (JCN), a group backing Kavanaugh's nomination, blamed Democrats for not speaking up about the harassment.

Blumenthal argued that there's an "even more urgent and pressing duty to get those documents and having witnesses to enable us to evaluate serious concerns raised as a result of evasive and seemingly misleading answers given to us at the hearing". "We lack the documents".

The Supreme Court nominee was responding to questions from committee Democrats, who submitted them in writing for the record after his hearing concluded last Friday.

But Burck's team stood by the process, according to a letter to the committee Wednesday obtained by The Associated Press.

"Senator Collins will make up her mind based on the merits of the nomination".

In fact, in leaked emails from 2003 the nominee said himself: "I am not sure that all legal scholars refer to Roe as the settled law of the land at the Supreme Court level since Court can always overrule its precedent, and three current Justices on the Court would do so".
