Ok...As hard as it is to believe ....I was wrong. At least I was partially wrong.

quote [ Democrats aim for potential cracks in GOP support for Kavanaugh ]

Well it may be theater, but low rent kabuki it ain't. And it has just an outside chance of working. This is something I am not used to seeing...Democrats growing a spine.

Sen. Cory Booker releases 'confidential' Kavanaugh emails in combative Supreme Court confirmation hearing


Kamala Harris grills Kavanaugh on Mueller investigation

Now don't get me wrong I see no evidence this is working. But the Dems have put some pressure on Purple state (including Manchin) and choice Senators...we will see if there is follow up on them. Tomorrow witness will be called...Nixon's White House counsel to testify against Kavanaugh Friday

This is not over yet and I am amazed.

And they also made the case for recusal By Kavanaugh and showed that he wasn't part of list by the Federalist Society that Trump said he would pick from but that he was only added after the special council was announced.

Overlap in Kavanaugh nomination, Trump Russia probe becomes clear

Harris and Booker may be setting themselves up for 2020, but even if they are, more Democrats need to act like this more of the time. Leahy, Durban, Whitehouse also good.

Kavanaugh was nominated to protect Republicans from their crimes, his record so dedicatedly partisan that his specific papers need hidden by Republican lawyers led by Bill Burck while he also lawyers for Russian interests.

Spine? They did well but could have done a lot better. They sat on their hands when accused of innuendo, rumors, and failed to counter directly every republican attack and false statement.

And the hidden docs are probably more about the shit in the bush whitehouse, since we already know how Brett Baby feels based on other docs. It would just prove it.

And I liked how booker sucked grassley’s ass. But he had a spine?

Harris made an ass out of herself and Booker tried to martyr himself by "releasing' documents that had already been released.

If that is what you consider growing a spine or heroic....you are ad...as well as your potential candidates for 2020.

Harris caught him like a dear in the headlights and Booker was threatened with expulsion when he did what he did... so ya better than expected.

Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) is releasing another round of "confidential" paperwork from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's work as a White House lawyer, despite the threat of a potential ethics investigation.

Booker's latest set of emails stamped "committee confidential" — meaning they haven't been cleared for pubic release — total 82 pages, some with redactions. The documents were released Friday evening.

The New Jersey Democrat defended the move, arguing that the GOP process for confirming Kavanaugh "makes a mockery of Senate precedent" and the chamber's "duty of advice and consent."

This is why I called all of this kabuki before...the votes on the 15 judges they agreed to fast-track last week,
