Senator Calls On Kavanaugh To Suspend Himself

During Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) requested Kavanaugh to “suspend” himself.

Durbin said, “I’m going to make a suggestion to you today and it won’t be popular on the other side of the aisle. If you believe your public record is one you can stand behind and defend, I hope at the end of, this you will ask this committee to suspend until we are given all the documents, until we have the time to review them and then we resume this hearing. What I’m saying to you is basically this; if you will trust the American people, they will trust you. But if your effort today continues to conceal and hide documents, it raises a suspicion.”

“When I was a practicing lawyer a long time ago in trial, the other side either destroyed or concealed evidence, I knew I was going to be able to have a convincing argument to close that case. What were they hiding? Why won’t they let you see the tape or the documents they can’t find? You know that presumption now is against you because of all the documents held back. For the sake of this nation, for the sanctity of the Constitution we both honor, step up, ask this meeting, this gathering to suspend until all the documents of your public career are there for the American people to see.”

    Just another way of bullying by the democrats they have already got a mountain of papers as a matter of fact over 400 k of them…….Bottom-line is they are afraid of him…..

  • Rachel

    Hey, Dick Durbin, why don’t you go and suspend yourself?

  • Clemantine

    Two Senators, Booker and the one from Hawaii violated the law and Senate rules by releasing confidential information. They both deserve to be kicked out of the Senate immediately!

    • harley93

      That will not happen because they are black.

    • Anastasia Weaver

      Wholeheartedly agree! Such fools sitting in the senate is a disgrace!

    • madmemere

      The bone-head, from Hawaii is “mazie hirono” – -all the “corn” she has consumed has clogged the brain cavity.

  • Angelshot 9876

    Shut up Durbin, You are a sore loser

  • steph

    Disgusting. If there is anything the left can be counted on for, it is hiding. When we see Hillary’s emails, then I will believe them when they say they want transparency.

  • Michael Mercer

    Durbin and Bookie to darlings of the left, I wish both would suspend themselves.

    • Gerry Costa

      Both were pathetic and pitiful !!!!!!!

    • Charles Lagioia

      YES I AGREE.

    • jim

      Little Dicky is a liar from way back this pile of Illinois shit should be slammed against a wall he is just full of shit like most DEMOCRAPS

  • Retied

    Vote these fools out of office or remove them from office for violating Senate rules. In todays world there is nothing they don’t know about a persons’ history. Just another shot at obstruction.

  • Bret Campos

    The democrats cried because they were given 40,000 pages to sift through was too much and now they’re crying because there aren’t enough pages .Quit stalling and swear Kavanaugh in .

    • Steve Flowers

      AS THEY SHOULD HAVE DONE IS WHAT NANCY PELOOOSI SAID ABOUT VOTING, “WE MUST VOTE ON THIS WITHOUT READING IT!” WITH THAT, THE DEMOC-RATS GAVE AMERICA OBAMA CARE!

      • Bret Campos

        Every red blooded Republican needs to get to the polls , not only this November ,but every election day

  • Philomena

    DICK DURBIN MUST RESIGN IMMEDIATELY. DURBIN IS PART OF THE LEFT WING GANG THAT REFUSES TO ACCEPT THE 2016 ELECTION. PERHAPS OBAMA AND ALL HIS DISCIPLES ARE BEHIND ALL THIS EVIL TRYING TO DESTROY THE USA AND BRING DOWN DONALD TRUMP. THE CIA AND FBI BECAME CORRUPT DURING THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION. JIM COMEY, ANDY McCABE, PETER STRZOK, LISA PAGE & ROBERT MUELLER ARE ALL CORRUPT. OF COURSE BRENNAN AND NOT WITTINGLY CLAPPER ARE ALSO PART OF THE CORRUPT GANG.

  • harley93

    Durbin is one of the biggest turds floating in the swamp.

  • Gerry Costa

    I watched that exchange and I’m not sure why Kavanaugh didn’t get up and knock durbin out of his chair. Kavanaugh sure can tolerate A-holes better than I can. Between turbin durbin , whiny booker and throw in non-stop BS artist harris not sure how Kavanaugh kept his cool. ol’ crying booker trying to play the martyr –looking ahead at 2020 — he is as transparent and obvious as the fool who wants all the attention. Suspend my a** — get this confirmation done –NOW !!!!

    • Anastasia Weaver

      Gerry I would say yes but Kavanaugh is a professional he does not want to bring himself to his level – he is a man of honor and integrity Durbin is not!!!

      • Gerry Costa

        Anastasia, love that name, you are exactly right but it would have been nice to watch.

    • GoldenGirl2u

      Couldn’t agree more, these people don’t have a clue and will never get elected to be Pres. unless they steal it. Durbin and the rest of the Dems. destroy every state they touch. ILL. wants them all gone.

      • Gerry Costa

        I hope Ill. succeeds in getting rid of them, Chicago has a good start getting rid of emanuel.

    • jim

      I agree with you I have never like that cocksucker from day one ,I saw his bull at an imagration rally in chicago were he said these people are not illegal well he is so full of shit you can smell him on line , dicky d find a tree and some rope and used it your self you hate full little man and communist

  • Steve Flowers

    DURBIN is properly named ‘DICK!’ He is one of the worst senators in Washington today. The state of Illinois is fading fast as the ‘DICK’ and the DEMOC-RATS have strangled the state. Durbin is all ‘talk’ the only action is him playing with his ‘DICK!’

  • Wm E Fullerton

    It’s real simple…
    The Democrats do not want Kavanaugh to be approved.
    If either Durbin and/or Booker had ‘anything’ that would prevent Kavanaugh from attaining a S.C. seat, then they would release it immediately!
    A ‘threat of’ means nothing.

  • Anastasia Weaver

    I’m from Illinois – a wonderful state
    But absolutely disgusting, immature. Evil people representing us what a disgrace to the Land of Lincoln to have Durbin make such deplorable
    Statements to Mr Kavanaugh.
    Illinois needs to clean up the drek.

  • Dexter L. Wilson

    The democrats have 300 decisions by Kavanaugh, have received 500,000 documents and that being more than the last 5 nominees. Did the Republicans orchestrate demonstrations inside the hearing room for Kagan, Ginsberg, or Sotomayer? No! Have you ever seen so much cow manure pushed by the Democrats and left media?

  • Norman Fox

    What are these idiots smoking. They think it is all about them and no one else. Have not seen a positive thought out of their feeble brains. Always the sky is falling and we know more than everyone else. They want to know everything about the right but they get to hide their skeletons

  • GoldenGirl2u

    Watching these people is disgusting. Funny, how they can hold up records, hide, destroy and continue on with a continued coup against our Pres. and yet the possibility of a good man getting on the Supreme Court they continue to try to stop at any cost. What they have done the last two years has shown how low they can go. They all should be out come midterms. Republicans need to stand together and if they need to fight dirty back, so be it.

  • Bishop351

    Just like Lerner and the IRS, Holder, Clinton (all), Nobama – transparency on what planet?….Dustbin Durbin should take a hike.

  • Charles Lagioia

    YES another senator who DONE nothing for ILLINOIS HE IS A JERK-OFF DEMOCRAT THAT should step down and RESIGN he would be doing ILLINOIS a great FAVOR by resigning from office.

  • rodstew

    Kavanaugh was thinking, “durbin….you disgusting, lying dirtbag. GFY.”

  • Broos

    Bugg ‘er Durbin ! ($hitholier-than-eew) !

  • truth beknown

    Booker and Harris…….
    both auditioning for 2020
    Nobama.2

  • James Sivright

    Maybe He should explain why Kagan didn’t recluse herself on the Obama Care judgement, seeing as how she helped write it. DEMOCRAT HYPOCRITES

  • Dave

    he should go back in the pizza business

  • Luanne Denman

    You are a dick Durbin.

  • madmemere

    Am I missing something here? I have never heard of any confirmee being required to “hand over emails”, before they can receive a vote. Does anyone out there know if this is a common practice, or are the demo-pinheads trying to set some kind of precedent??

  • Deplorable Irredeemable Susan

    If 42,000 documents aren’t enough, how many more do they need?
    Demonrats are totally, insane, theatrical crybabies, and bullying thugs.
    All Judge Kavanaugh expects is to go through the established process.
    He has been smeared, screamed at, brow-beaten, had his family led away
    to safety, insulted, slandered, libeled, and about a hundred other atrocities.
    So far, on the Demonrat side of the aisle, people have acted like paid escapees
    from mental wards for the criminally insane. #walk away Vote REPUBLICAN!!!

  • Wendy

    Oh but Hillary’s emails are just fine being hidden or destroyed. Geez these guys are CRAZY!

  • shrgngatlas

    Let’s see, if we don’t do this, then we are surely trying to hide things. If we do this, all the documents in the world won’t satisfy the dems because they will insist things are missing. It’s the classic “lose/lose” situation.

  • MikeC

    Durbin and Booker should resign from the Senate post haste, They have caused enough trouble to this nation….IMHO

  • Another incompetent clueless, grandstanding, idiot the democrats keep electing and last clueless on how to fix anything!
