(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Today's Senate hearings of the accounts of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh & Christine Blasey Ford, who claimed she was sexually assaulted by Brett Kavanaugh in 1982, re-introduced. [KAVANAUGH - calls it an orchestrated political hit by the left-wing: this is a circus; asks a senator what he likes to drink.]

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion continued with CNN's Kirsten Powers, Jeffrey Toobin, Dana Bash, former RNC chairman Mike Shields & Gloria Borger about the politics of the hearings. [BORGER, TOOBIN, SHIELDS, POWERS - offer views on how no minds were changed by the hearings because there was no new evidence, how base politics were shown in the Democratic Party: partisan, the astonishing temper tantrums, that this is about abortion politics.] Other material: [Senator Lindsey GRAHAM - says he would never do to them {Supreme Court nominees} what you have done to this guy {Kavanaugh}: an unethical sham.]

Cooper, Anderson
