Harris generated national buzz as a provocateur and effective stalwart against the Trump administration ahead of her likely 2020 presidential candidacy.
Numerous current president's critics on the left insist that they are standing up for norms of democratic conduct and for democracy itself.
Democrats also highlighted a 2001 email referenced on Wednesday in which Kavanaugh seemed dismissive of Department of Transportation regulations that gave preference to minority-owned companies, even where they did not offer the most competitive bid on a particular contract.
Booker may have also missed the letter Chairman Grassley sent to all Judiciary Committee Democrats last month, encouraging all members to send requests for any confidential documents they wanted released to the public.
Kavanaugh, whose hearings were swarmed with protesters from various activist groups opposed to his nomination, revealed a trove of information about himself, while concealing just as much.
Speaking to reporters, Harris had pushed back against the law firm's statement denying any conversations were had with Kavanaugh.
She's trying to "trap" Judge K. into saying he either met or did not meet with some unnamed person about the Mueller inquiry into Russian witchcraft.
Democratic Senator Dick Durbin saidKavanaugh's nomination comes at a time when Trump poses a threat to America's rule of law and is facing an ongoing special counsel investigation.
Republicans hope to confirm Kavanaugh in time for the first day of the new Supreme Court term, October 1. The query appeared to unnerve Kavanaugh.
Senate Democrats had worked into the night Thursday on Kavanaugh's final day of questioning in a last, ferocious attempt to paint him as a foe of abortion rights and a likely defender of President Donald Trump.

The exchange was one of the newsiest moments of the first day of questioning and had many wondering where Harris was headed. In what nearly seemed like a celebration Thursday, Kavanaugh's two daughters returned to the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing room for the final hours of testimony, accompanied by teammates on Catholic school basketball teams their father has coached. "Basically, she's still vetting the new information that's coming out", said her spokeswoman, Hannah Ray. But that's not what people watching the hearing saw.
Leahy said that emails disclosed during Kavanaugh's nomination hearing this week buttress his case that Kavanaugh knew, or should have known, that he had received documents that Republican staffers took from a computer jointly shared with Democrats.
Booker asked previously, Kavanaugh said, "the independence of the judiciary requires that I not commit" to participating or not participating in a case. Her standard, she wrote, was whether the nominee was "unquestionably well-qualified, brilliant, has integrity and is within the mainstream of legal thought". It's not to make this a very bad process.
"We have rules in the Senate, we have norms for decorum", Cornyn said.
"The way they're screaming and shouting, it's a disgrace to our country actually", Trump said Friday during a fundraiser in Fargo, North Dakota, for the GOP opponent to Democratic Sen. Feinstein went further the next day, rebuking Republicans for restricting the use of so numerous documents, calling it "kind of a crock".
Collins did have many positive remarks about Kavanaugh, including that she believes he would respect the precedent established by Roe v. Wade and earlier Supreme Court cases that ruled in favor of women's privacy.
Feinstein was 40 when the 1973 decision came down, and she has told stories of college acquaintances who died seeking illegal abortions before the ruling.
