"Cory Booker & Kamala Harris competing for Most Hysterical Woman at the Kavanaugh hearings" Coulter wrote in a tweet that was retweeted more than 11,000 times and liked more than 33,000 times as of Thursday afternoon.

Harris and Booker, both considered 2020 Democratic presidential contenders in what will likely be a crowded field, said during Judicial Committee hearings that Kavanaugh would serve as a rubber stamp in advancing President Trump's agenda, providing the high court with a definitive 5-4 conservative tilt.

The two senators also argued that Kavanaugh could serve as a protector of Trump should he find himself in legal trouble from special counsel Mueller's Russia investigation.

“It seems so clear that, in your courts, the same folks seem to win over and over again: the powerful, the privileged, big corporations, special interests," said Booker on Wednesday. On Thursday, he released emails from Kavanaugh’s time in the White House marked “committee confidential" in a move he acknowledged was against Senate rules.

Harris also grilled Kavanaugh, asking him repeatedly if he ever had a conversation with anyone about the Mueller investigation.

"The fact that it's ongoing, it's a topic in the news every day, I talk to fellow judges about it. It's the courthouse in the District of Columbia. So, I guess, the answer to that is yes," Kavanaugh replied. 

Republicans currently hold a 50-49 advantage in the Senate. Kavanaugh only needs 50 votes to be confirmed, and no GOP members to this point have indicated they will oppose his nomination.
