Hearing Day 2: William Barr Finishes Confirmation Hearings Unscathed & Should Earn Bipartisan Support
Today was the testimony of expert panelists regarding the confirmation of the Honorable William Barr to become Attorney General of the United States. Republican witnesses offered testimony explaining why Mr. Barr is the right fit at the U.S. Department of Justice. Meanwhile, the Democratic witnesses failed to present any real concerns about Mr. Barr or his past tenure as Attorney General in the early 1990s but rather focused on other, systemic issues they perceive in the laws and justice system. Some of most noteworthy testimony for Republican witnesses included:Read more

RNLA Vice President for Communications Harmeet Dhillon wrote today's blog post.
Back in July, Minority Leader Chuck Schumer promised to oppose Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court with “everything I’ve got.” Then in the confirmation hearings earlier this month, Judge Kavanaugh’s competence, intelligence, diligence, and character shone.
At Kavanaugh’s hearing, the Democrats looked foolish. Senator Cory Booker had his self-identified “Spartacus” moment where he claimed to release confidential information when it was not confidential (and proved Kavanaugh agreed with him on civil rights). Senator Kamala Harris teased a smoking gun that somehow Kavanaugh was connected to a law firm that represents President Trump personally, only to come up empty. Senator Schumer used an obscure procedural motion to shut down the Senate for a day, only to have the hearing go ahead and the full Senate confirm eight lower court judges with less debate.
The far left was furious at Schumer’s failure and the belly-flops by Democrat senators on Judiciary. The Schumer-led Senate Democrats turned to trying to score political hits based on unsubstantiated allegations that attempt to viciously destroy a good man’s character, and forever tar him and his family with these defamatory claims.Read more
