Sen. Mark Warner to vote against Brett Kavanaugh confirmation

Kavanaugh completed two days of testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday

Among the speakers at the press conference was Marcus Sibley, communications director for the state conference of the NAACP, who called Kavanaugh a "danagerous ideologe", Sibley said the NAACP had opposed Kavanaugh when he was fisrt appointed as a federal judge.

"We had a long conversation about the role of precedent and how a judge should perform on the bench", Gardner said in a statement in July after meeting with Kavanaugh.

Collins herself made a similar statement, telling Politico Thursday that while she hadn't yet read the email, "I am told that he was editing an op-ed for clarity and was merely stating a fact that three judges on the court were anti-Roe". "If that's the case then, and it's not expressing his view, then I'm not sure what the point is".

"After careful consideration of his record and reviewing the limited documents made available to the U.S. Senate, I have come to the conclusion that I can not support Judge Kavanaugh's nomination to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court", she said in a statement.

Leahy said Kavanaugh testified that he never received any documents that appeared to be drafted or prepared by Democratic committee staff, but "he got 8 pages of material taken VERBATIM from my files, obviously written by Dem staff, LABELED 'not [for] distribution'".

Some democrats believe Kavanaugh will help overturn Roe v. Wade, which gives women the right to have an abortion.

On a policy level, which could provide key insights into how he might rule should he be confirmed to the highest court in the U.S., answers were mixed.

"I think that's what legal scholars have ― some ― some legal scholars have undoubtedly said things like that over time, but that ― that's different from what I as a judge ― my position as a judge is that there's 45 years of precedent and there's Planned Parenthood v. Casey, which reaffirmed Roe", he said. The nominee added that his email was merely summarizing the view of other legal scholars.

Most of the resistance, coming particularly from Democrats, has to do with the lack of information released regarding Kavanaugh's past.

Leahy's charge stems from an infamous episode between 2001 and 2003 when a Republican counsel on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Manuel Miranda, learned that Democrats on the panel had put documents on a computer server shared with Republicans. Booker to use in his questioning of Judge Kavanaugh - but the senator then released other documents that were still confidential.
