Republicans have the votes to confirm Kavanaugh and are expected to do so.

Kavanaugh said his opinion was based on Supreme Court precedent that indicated semi-automatic weapons are in common use.

He condemned the spate of U.S. school shootings, but defended an opinion he wrote questioning whether semi-automatic rifles could be banned.

Senate Democrats have vowed a fierce fight to block Kavanaugh's nomination.

The wide-ranging testimony underscored the potential for Kavanaugh's nomination to shape the supreme court and the decisions before it for decades to come. We have previously expressed our concern that the Committee is receiving only a small fraction of Judge Kavanaugh's White House record, filtered through an opaque private review process being conducted by outside private lawyers rather than the nonpartisan National Archives.

One of the big questions surrounding Kavanaugh is how he would vote on cases related to Roe vs. Wade.

Trump has often criticised the federal judiciary, and some liberals fear Kavanaugh could serve as a rubber stamp for the president.

The controversy surrounding Brett Kavanaugh and his nomination to the Supreme Court - and the reason why Perabo and others were protesting - stems from the Trump Administration's lack of disclosure as to Kavanaugh's record in the White House.

Kavanaugh, a federal appeals court judge in Washington, D.C., described himself as an "independent" judge. Democratic senators (especially the less senior senators) chipped away at that have-it-both-ways defensive edifice. "If we can't even have a nominee who can publicly say there is no right for 7.2 billion people to break into the world and demand an abortion - putting Roe aside - i dont [sic] know the objective of us engaging in this business", he said.

Leahy said in a statement Wednesday that Miranda and another staffer were behind what he called the hacking of 4,670 computer files and used them "to assist in getting President Bush's most controversial judicial nominees confirmed".

Democratic senators tag-teamed Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley from the very start of Judge Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation hearing.

Asked why Democrats shouldn't have a chance to thoroughly review and vet those documents, Grassley said "because it's irrelevant to his being a judge". He said in the interview that he was never charged in the matter and that he never it considered his action to be hacking, because the documents were on a shared computer server.

He highlighted the 1992 Planned Parenthood versus Casey ruling that reaffirmed Roe, calling it a "precedent on precedent".

The 53-year-old jurist was also asked about President Trump's tweets. The ruling was later overturned and she underwent the abortion.

When John Roberts was nominated, President Bush announced he would not invoke executive privilege over any of his White House records.

"It's important to emphasize that it was a minor", Kavanaugh began. "That speaks more about how we work in a collegial way than what you're seeing on television", said Grassley.

Trump said he had been watching the hearings and thought the Democrats were "grasping at straws" in questioning the man he chose to replace retired Justice Anthony Kennedy.
