July 10: I want to take my look at him, and I want to get answers to a bunch of questions. I have plenty of time before I'm obliged to cast a vote on him. And I think, for awhile, it's actually really important for the American people to understand that these Republican judicial nominees are coming through a special interest obstacle course moderated in secret by the Federalist Society, that there's a whole dark-money operation that goes into action to support their confirmations politically -- one donor gave nearly $18 million into the Garland to Gorsuch fight -- so there's a lot of smelly stuff that happens in this process that I think is going to be educational for Americans as we look later at Brett Kavanaugh. But we shouldn't look away from this messy process too early and have the American people not understand how this is the early stages of rigging. (NBC News)
