BOSTON, MA (WBZ-AM) -- There was no shortage of local reaction from lawmakers following the Kavanaugh hearings in Washington D.C. Thursday.
Depending on what happens with the United State Senate's Judiciary Committee Friday -- a vote on Brett Kavanaugh could come before the Full Senate as early as Saturday
Massachusetts Senators Ed Markey and Elizabeth Warren have had no shortage of reaction
Senator Warren tweeting about Kavanaugh's refusal to submit to an FBI investigation - and failure to release documents from his government service.
Warren says 'a justice should have honesty & integrity' and that Kavanaugh has neither – she says 'he should withdraw.'
One way for Brett Kavanaugh to clear his name is to submit to an FBI investigation. But he refuses. And he won't release the thousands of documents from his gov't service. What is he hiding? A Justice should have honesty & integrity. Kavanaugh has neither – he should withdraw.— Elizabeth Warren (@SenWarren) September 27, 2018
Referencing to Kavanaughs' testimony on Thursday, Senator Ed Markey says Kavanaugh displayed the exact opposite of the kind of temperament expected from a justice on our nation’s top court.
Judge #Kavanaugh was angry, belligerent, and disrespectful. He displayed the exact opposite of the kind of temperament expected from a justice on our nation’s top court. Judge Kavanaugh displayed the kind of behavior you would see on the People’s Court, not the Supreme Court.— Ed Markey (@SenMarkey) September 27, 2018
At times, Judge Kavanaugh was emotional and Michael Coyner, President of the Massachusetts School of Law says the impact of that emotion, really is in the eye of the beholder.
And there was plenty of split reaction not just from the political circles but a vast division of opinions all over social media.
