Kavanaugh’s Hearing By The Numbers, Straight From Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah

Virginia Kruta Associate Editor

Hearings on the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh began on Tuesday morning — and throughout the day, for those who were unable to watch the opening statements, White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah laid out the score on Twitter.

Shah’s first update came just 30 minutes into the proceedings.

He took a moment to point out the hypocrisy when Vermont Democratic Sen. Leahy complained about being interrupted.

Shah’s next update came a few hours into the hearing.

And once the hearing was wrapped for the day, Shah provided a final tally.

Judge Kavanaugh will return on Wednesday when committee members will have the opportunity to question him directly.
