On Day 2 of Kavanaugh Hearing, Leading Anti-Kavanaugh Group Goes After 3 More Senate Dems

Another day of the confirmation hearings for Judge Brett Kavanaugh, and another round of attacks from the leading anti-Kavanaugh group on Senate Democrats – yes, Senate Democrats.

NTK Network noted this week that on Tuesday, the first day of the Kavanaugh hearings, Demand Justice went after Sens. Tim Kaine (D-VA), Mark Warner (D-VA), and Joe Donnelly (D-IN) for not pledging complete and total opposition to Kavanaugh before the judge even answered a single question in the hearing.

As soon as the question-and-answer portion of the Kavanaugh hearings began on Wednesday, though, Demand Justice and its leader, former Clinton and Schumer aide Brian Fallon, started going after more Senate Democrats.

Fallon and another Demand Justice aide thought Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, did a “[r]idiculous” job asking questions of Kavanaugh.

Fallon even suggested at one point that Feinstein’s junior colleague, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), should be promoted to Feinstein’s position in the committee.

Fallon also went after Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT), the longest-tenured member of the committee:

And Fallon targeted a member of the Senate Democratic caucus who is not on the committee, but like Donnelly will be key to deciding Kavanaugh’s fate in the full Senate: Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), a swing Democratic vote.

It’s unclear whether Demand Justice’s efforts to attack Democrats will help them stop Kavanaugh’s likely confirmation. Even if every Democrat votes against Kavanaugh, the judge could still be confirmed by at least 50 Republicans (and, in a tiebreaker scenario, Vice President Mike Pence) in the U.S. Senate.
