The hearings surrounding President Trump’s nominee to join the Supreme Court descended into chaos Tuesday morning, with liberal protesters chanting “vote no” as Congressional Democrats called for an indefinite postponement.
“Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley was able to deliver his opening statement for just a few seconds before Democratic California Sen. Kamala Harris raised objections to the committee just receiving a batch of 42,000 documents relating to the nominee’s work with past administrations,” writes Fox News.
“We cannot possibly move forward,” said Sen. Harris.
Sen. Cory Booker slammed Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley moments later, saying the proceedings violated his “sense of decency.”
“I think you are taking advantage of my decency and my integrity,” Grassley fired-back.

BOOKER GOES BERSERK: Cory Says Kavanaugh Supporters ‘COMPLICIT IN EVIL’
Hyper-liberal Senator Cory Booker exploded on those supporting the President’s pick to join the Supreme Court Tuesday; saying those in favor of confirming Brett Kavanaugh are “complicit in evil.”
Booker was speaking alongside fellow Democrats -including Sen. Elizabeth Warren- when he viciously smeared those behind Kavanaugh’s nomination; adding the United States was in a “moral moment.”
“There’s so much at stake here, this has nothing to do with politics, it has to do with who we are as moral leaders… In a moral moment there is no neutral. In a moral moment there are no bystanders. You’re either complicit in evil […] or you’re fighting against it,” said the Senator.
“There’s a saying in the Abrahamic faiths one of the Psalms that says ‘Yea though we walk through the valley of the shadow of death.’ We are walking through the valley of the shadow of death. But that doesn’t say ‘Though I sit in the valley of the shadow of death,’ it doesn’t say, ‘I’m watching on the sidelines of the valley of the shadow of death, it says, ‘I am walking through the valley of the shadow of death,’” he added.
SCHUMER CAVES: Democrats Agree to Meet JUDGE KAVANAUGH in Weeks
Leading Senate Democrats reportedly caved Friday in their attempts to stonewall the confirmation process of Judge Brett Kavanaugh; agreeing to meet the potential Supreme Court Justice later this month.
According to the Washington Post, Senator Schumer and Senator Feinstein -the leading Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee- plan to hold face-to-face meetings with Kavanaugh after the Senate returns from its August recess.
“Schumer and Feinstein will start meeting with President Trump’s pick to succeed retired justice Anthony M. Kennedy after the Senate returns from its truncated recess Aug. 15,” writes the Post.
“In addition to questioning Judge Kavanaugh on health care, women’s freedom, presidential power and other issues, Senate Democrats intend to demand that he call for and support the release of all of his files from his time in the Bush White House,” added one Democratic aide.
