Senator Hatch: (5:37 p.m.)

  • Spoke on sports betting.
    • "I'd like to say upfront that I'm not a fan of sports betting. I have grave concerns about gambling in general and sports betting in particular. There's no question that sports betting like other types of gambling and addictive behavior has ruined far too many lives. And to those deleterious social effects, the threat sports betting poses to the integrity of the game. And you can see why the prohibition on sports wagering in the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act passed the Senate 88-5. I authored this legislation and fought tooth and nail to get it passed because I knew without it, sports gambling would corrupt the integrity of the game. Despite these views, I'm also a realist."
  • Spoke on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to be an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.
    • "Why hasn't the "New Yorker" written a think piece about it already? If you want to really understand Judge Kavanaugh's view on the constitutional separation of powers, you won't read about it in the college newspapers or reading his wife's work e-mails. You will find it by reading judge Kavanaugh's actual opinions as a federal judge. Of course, Democrats know this. But like a kid procrastinating his homework, playing video games and microwaving bagel bites, they are looking for any distraction to analyzing Judge Kavanaugh's judicial record. That's because Democrats know what they'll find when they do, a nominee who is indisputably qualified for the Supreme Court."
