FEATURING STEPHEN SPAULDING – On Wednesday, Day 2 of the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Senators Dianne Feinstein questioned the nominee about Roe Vs. Wade and gun control. Senator Patrick Leahy point blank asked Judge Kavanaugh whether he had an opinion about Presidential power to pardon oneself.

Meanwhile on Wednesday 13 prominent progressive organizations including Democracy for America, Color of Change, 350.org, Friends of the Earth, and the Women’s March sent a strongly worded letter to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. The groups are demanding the Democratic Senator pressure every single Democrat to vote “No” on Kavanaugh and additionally pressure 1 or 2 Republican Senators.
