The Republicans dumped a bunch of documents last night. Corey Booker asking Grassley why the hearing is being rushed.

Mazie Hirono asks why they're expected to clear all questions and evidence through the committee, that this is not regular order.

Sheldon Whitehouse says executive privilege was never asserted, why are documents being withheld?

All this while protesters are screaming from the audience. Whoa.

UPDATE: Grassley shut down the objections with a pack of lies and move on to Senators' statements. The afternoon session opened with Amy Klobuchar, and now Ben Sasse is working hard to rehabilitate Kavanaugh.

Can you help us out?
