Democrats Who Vowed Not To Vote To Confirm Kavanaugh To SCOTUS Send Him Laundry List Of Questions Anyway
Democrats in the Senate have already made it crystal clear that they will not vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Yet they have submitted a record breaking list of questions to him. They’re just doing everything they can to try to slow the process and appease their far left supporters.
The Washington Times reports:
Dems send 1,278 additional questions to Kavanaugh, more than all other SCOTUS nominees combined
Senate Democrats submitted a record number of written questions to President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, in a move Republicans said was the latest attempt to delay confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
The 1,278 questions are four times more than the number asked of Justice Neil M. Gorsuch, Mr. Trump’s first high court pick, last year. Indeed, it’s more than the combined total for every justice in U.S. history, said Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the committee, asked 241 questions herself — more than the total the Senate as a whole asked of Justice Elena Kagan and Justice Sonia Sotomayor, President Obama’s court picks.
“Submitting this many written questions appears to be just one more effort to gum up the process. It’s unnecessary and dilatory, especially when many have already decided to vote against Judge Kavanaugh. What more do they need to know to vote ‘no’?” Mr. Grassley said.
The situation has gotten so bad that even liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is complaining about the process:
Justice Ginsburg (visiting @gwlaw) contrasts her confirmation process to Kavanaugh’s, says it was “truly bipartisan” back then. “The way it was was right. The way it is is wrong… I wish I could wave a magic wand and have it go back to the way it was.” #RBG

Democrats have got nothing else.
Kavanaugh will be confirmed.
