VIDEO: Hirono Questions Kavanaugh On Day Two Of Senate Hearing
(BIVN) – Senator Hirono questioned Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh during the high-profile confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday.

Hirono grilled Kavanaugh on, as she puts it, “his past offensive comments about Native Hawaiians, the importance of confronting the scourge of sexual harassment, and the nominee’s unwillingness to affirm a woman’s constitutional right to an abortion,” as the Hawaii senator put it, during her first round of questioning.

Hirono has already announced that she will oppose the Kavanaugh nomination. “At this moment of danger for our democracy, the American people do not need a rubber stamp for Donald Trump on the Supreme Court,” she said.

Feinstein played Ford like a pawn - The Boston Globe
That is not a condemnation of Ford, it is a condemnation of Feinstein. Saying so isn’t “survivor shaming,” it’s “Senate shaming.”

Opinion | How Brett Kavanaugh Failed - The New York Times
"This confirmation battle has been awful for everyone. It has exposed to the country a depth of partisan grievance and connivance within the Senate that should embarrass and worry every American. It is a terrible reality that, at this point, either confirmation or rejection of Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination by a narrow and overwhelmingly partisan margin will dismay and anger millions of Americans. But only by voting no, by asking Mr. Trump to send someone else for it to consider, can the Senate pass its test of institutional character and meet its obligation to safeguard the credibility of the Supreme Court."

Vote ‘no’ on Kavanaugh - The Washington Post
Historic. "But we would not have opposed Mr. Kavanaugh on that basis, just as we did not think GOP senators should have voted against Sonia Sotomayor because they did not like her views. Rather, the reason not to vote for Mr. Kavanaugh is that senators have not been given sufficient information to consider him — and that he has given them ample evidence to believe he is unsuited for the job. The country deserves better."
