California Senator Kamala Harris had Kavanaugh on the ropes:

The moment where she says, “Be sure about your answer, sir.,” is pure prosecutorial drama. She leaves him sputtering.
I do not know if Harris suspects that Kavanaugh is in a pay-to-play scheme for a lifetime appointment, but it seems clear to me that is what she is driving at. I don’t think that there is any doubt that he is a right wing idealogue if not an apparatchik.
Maybe she’s setting up a lying to the Senate scenario for a later impeachment?
“Sen. Cory Booker announced at the start of Thursday’s Senate Judiciary Supreme Court confirmation hearing for Brett Kavanaugh that he would publicly release “committee confidential” documents.”
“I am going to release the email about racial profiling. And I understand that the penalty comes with potential ousting from the Senate. And if Sen. Cornyn believes that I violated Senate rules, I openly invite and accept the consequences…the emails being withheld from the public have nothing to do with national security.”— Sen. Cory Booker
