Full Replay: Brett Kavanaugh Confirmation Hearing (Day Two)


Senators begin their questioning of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on day two of his confirmation hearings. He delivered his opening statement late Monday afternoon after a long day of protests, procedural interruptions, and grandstanding.

On Wednesday, Democratic senators did not start with objections as they had the previous day, but at least four protesters, including a woman in a wheelchair this time, were led out yelling things like, "Sham president, sham justice," "Stop slaughtering our children," and "Stop in the name of Mother Earth."

Democratic Senator Dick Durbin grilled Kavanaugh on abortion rights, noting that the minor had obtained a judicial bypass, which should have allowed her to get the procedure without parental consent, and “complied with every legal requirement, including Texas state requirements, placed in front of her, so she could move forward with her decision.”

In response, Kavanaugh emphasized that Jane Doe was a minor. If she were an adult, he said, “she would have a right to obtain the abortion immediately.”
