“This process is illegitimate,” Scarborough said. “No judge in America would allow an opposing side to dump 150,000 documents on another party in a lawsuit the day before hearings started or a trial is started. I’m completely baffled. Why do Democrats—why are they even showing up? They should not show up.”
On social media, critics demanded that Harris, Booker, and the other Democrats on the committee make a far stronger statement by refusing to continue the hearing and walking out.
As the hearing proceeded, Democrats including Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) and Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) spoke out against Kavanaugh’s views on the president’s “immunity from the law” and the “35-month black hole” in his record due to the withholding of the documents.
But critics held that continuing with the hearing at all was a betrayal of constituents who are counting on Democratic senators to serve their interests—as Republicans went to extreme lengths to block President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Merrick Garland, from even having a confirmation hearing in 2016 in order to serve their party’s interests.
