Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing set to start September 4

Brett Kavanaugh

The hearings are expected to last three or four days.

August 9: After attorney William A. Burck vetted the initial documents from the Bush Library, the documents were sent only to the Senate Judiciary Committee members.

The Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday did begin releasing a small slice of documents related to Kavanaugh's work in the early 2000s for Bush, including the administration's response to the September 11 attacks.

"It's clear that Republicans want to speed this nomination through before we know who Brett Kavanaugh is".

Grassley said Friday there's "plenty of time" to review the documents but added it's time for Americans "to hear directly" from Kavanaugh.

"He's met with dozens of senators who have nothing but positive things to say", Grassley, an Iowa Republican, said in a statement. The panel has additionally received 174,000 pages from his work for Bush in the White House counsel's office. The committee also expects to receive hundreds of thousands of additional pages of Executive Branch documents. "Judge Kavanaugh looks forward to addressing the Judiciary Committee in public hearings for the American people to view".

"Judge Kavanaugh has been endorsed by leading figures on the right and the left". This extends the timeline that was set for the committee's consideration of Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, and Neil Gorsuch.

The White House quickly reacted to Grassley's plan: "With the Senate already reviewing more documents than for any other Supreme Court nominee in history, Chairman Grassley has lived up to his promise to lead an open, transparent and fair process", spokesman Raj Shah said in a statement. "We need more people on the bench who share his judicial philosophy that judges should interpret, not make the law".

Kavanaugh once helped write the Starr Report, which outlined broad grounds on which to impeach President Clinton for his role in the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

But Democrats like Harris are trying to claim that they have not had enough time to go on a fishing expedition to examine everything Kavanaugh may have ever written to find something they can use to derail his nomination before the Supreme Court begins its new term on October 1. Democrats have complained Republicans are rushing the process for the lifetime appointment without proper vetting of Kavanaugh's record.

The Kavanaugh confirmation process is moving ahead with hearings now scheduled for next month.

[I] t appears that senators belonging to the majority party are using outside channels to secure preferential access to records and to determine which documents will be released, and therefore have undue influence over both the Senate's and the public's perceptions of the nominee.
