Trump’s Supreme Court nominee to have confirmation hearing September 4

  • Kavanaugh confirmation hearings set to start on Sept. 4

Schumer said on Friday that Republicans were only planning to release a small portion of documents that would be "cherry-picked by a Republican operative" now working for the former president Bush.

"Obviously, these hearings are just the beginning of the confirmation process". Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said in a statement Friday.

Grassley said he expects the hearing to last three or four days. The questioning of Judge Kavanaugh will begin on Wednesday, September 5. He wrote, "We believe an indictment should not be pursued while the President is in Office". And White House spokesman Raj Shah noted that the Senate had reviewed "More documents than for any other Supreme Court nominee in history". "It's time for the American people to hear directly from Judge Kavanaugh at his public hearing".

He further touted the nominee as a mainstream judge with a record of "applying the law as it is written".

Democrats say the Republicans are relying on the cherry-picked files being released primarily by Bush's lawyer, Bill Burck, who is compiling and vetting the documents, rather than the traditional process conducted by the National Archives and Records Administration.

The California Democrat has already indicated on multiple occasions that she will vote against Kavanaugh, tweeting just minutues after his nomination was announced that she "will oppose his nomination to the Supreme Court" because Kavanaugh "represents a direct and fundamental threat to the rights and health care of hundreds of millions of Americans".

Kavanaugh has met with most Senate Republicans over the past month but only one Democrat, Sen. Opening statements by Judiciary Committee members and the nominee will occur on Tuesday, September 4. This process gives an unfair advantage to senators supporting Judge Kavanaugh's nomination, at the expense of a fully transparent process that allows for full disclosure and scrutiny by all voting lawmakers.

Grassley's team of counsels and other aides have reviewed 4,800 pages of legal opinions that Kavanaugh wrote, more than 17,000 pages related to Kavanaugh's committee questionnaire, and more than 184,000 pages of the nominee's documents from his tenure working in the George W. Bush White House and for independent counsel Kenneth Starr.

That scheduling tees up the GOP to meet its goal of getting President Donald Trump's pick seated on the high court by the time its term begins in early October, barring unforeseen obstacles or a breakthrough by Democrats who are pushing to derail Kavanaugh's confirmation.
