Brett Kavanaugh Hits Hurdle On Road To Supreme Court

03 August 2018

The scope of documents requested by Republicans does not touch on an even bigger group of documents from Kavanaugh's three years as Bush's staff secretary. Grassley did not request any additional documents pertaining to Kavanaugh's time as Bush's staff secretary. "In the end, the committee will have reviewed significantly more records than ever before for a Supreme Court nominee".

Manchin's remarks mean he did not commit to voting for or against Kavanaugh ahead of the confirmation hearing that could take place as soon as September, with the goal of replacing retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy before the next court session begins on October 1. "The Bush Library will produce to us over 125,000 pages today", said the aide.

"This unprecedented process appears to be designed intentionally by Republicans to deny the Senate and the American people the information they need to evaluate this critically important nomination", said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, according to NBC News.

Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said Democrats also object to the Bush library, rather than nonpartisan archives officials, vetting the documents.

Democrats said the letter is an admission that the GOP is engaging in an unusual process to pre-screen documents sent to Capitol Hill, ensuring that even records from his time at the White House Counsel's office will not be publicly disclosed. "To be clear, President Bush has offered this as a courtesy to the Committee to assist in a timely assessment of Judge Kavanaugh's nomination".

However, it should be possible to get the documents to Senators much more quickly than the Archives review process permits.

Baird and associates plan to keep an eye on the two that were discovered through tracking to see what results it yields. The sighting is also only the third confirmed instance of a wild-born hybrid between species in the Delphinidae family.

"I want to really complement the Democrats who have stood up and are willing to stand up for Judge Kavanaugh because they realize we can't keep going down this partisan, picky, stupid, dumbass road that has happened around here for so long", he said. "Mr. McConnell made clear in multiple phone calls with Mr. Trump and the White House counsel, Donald F. McGahn II, that the lengthy paper trail of another top contender, Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, would pose difficulties for his confirmation", The New York Times reported.

The documents being compiled are only the initial request from Republicans. In particular, Kavanaugh acknowledged playing a role in a 2005 statement Bush signed accompanying a law sponsored by Sen.

Republicans hope to have Kavanaugh confirmed by the start of the next Supreme Court session, October 1.
