Senator Coons: (4:25 p.m.)

  • Spoke on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to be an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.
    • "I asked judge Kavanaugh about a comment he made on a panel at Georgetown when he said, quote, if the president were the sole subject of a criminal investigation, I would say no one should be investigating that. In fact, Judge Kavanaugh testified he didn't say that. But I've reviewed the record. I followed up with a series of questions for the record to get additional information I think the American people should know and to give Judge Kavanaugh a chance outside of our brief exchanges in the confirmation process to explain his suggestions that perhaps I had misquoted him, and, unfortunately, instead I received pages of nonanswers."
