Either way, it's troubling, to put it mildly, to know that apparently Kavanaugh isn't (or, wasn't) even remotely interested in fixing racism, according to one of the emails Booker released against the wishes of his Republican counterparts who threatened to have him ousted from the Senate.

Senate Democrats worked into the night Thursday in a last, ferocious attempt to paint Kavanaugh as a foe of abortion rights and a likely defender of President Donald Trump. That prospect worries Democrats and heartens Republicans on volatile issues including abortion, gun rights, gay rights, the death penalty, religious liberty and business regulation.
On Friday, New York University law professor Melissa Murray told lawmakers that Kavanaugh would provide the "necessary fifth vote that would utterly eviscerate" Roe v. Wade. "You've probably been told you have the votes to be confirmed so you don't have to care, but I care". But Kavanaugh appears on his way to becoming the court's 114th justice. But perhaps the biggest challenge to his bid for confirmation as an associate justice of the US Supreme Court may lie in his views on the landmark Supreme Court ruling in Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion nationally. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., was the center of attention as she grilled Kavanaugh on whether he had discussed special counsel Robert Mueller's probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election with anyone at the law firm of Kasowitz Benson Torres, which was founded by President Trump's personal attorney Marc Kasowitz.
"I speak for every American whose life could change tomorrow with a new diagnosis", Jackson said, before emphasizing the need for affordable care in the US for people with pre-existing conditions.

That changed at this week's hearings, when the committee released a number of previously undisclosed emails that Leahy said raised new questions about Kavanaugh's knowledge that the documents were improperly taken. Our party controls neither the White House nor the Senate.
Leahy's charge stems from an infamous episode between 2001 and 2003 when a Republican counsel on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Manuel Miranda, learned that Democrats on the panel had put documents on a computer server shared with Republicans.
