Kavanaugh confirmation hearings set to start on Sept. 4

"While those on the left will cry that the timing is short, Judge Kavanaugh's name was listed last November on President Trump's short list of possible nominees if a Supreme Court vacancy should occur".

President Donald Trump's nominee to be the next justice on the Supreme Court -- Judge Brett Kavanaugh -- is set for a confirmation hearing on September 4, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee announced Friday. The hearing is expected to run four days.

He further touted the nominee as a mainstream judge with a record of "applying the law as it is written". They have also filed multiple Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests for documents pertaining to Kavanaugh's time in the White House as staff secretary and an associate in the White House Counsel's office. "It's time for the American people to hear directly from Judge Kavanaugh".

Senate Republicans decided Friday to push ahead with a confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh despite a dispute with Democrats over documents from his years working at the White House. Opening statements will take place on September 4, and the Senators will begin questioning Kavanaugh the following day.

Kavanaugh's record is clear.

Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn criticized Democrats who oppose Kavanaugh's confirmation in a statement.

Kavanaugh's lengthy paper trail has become a part of a tit-for-tat between Republicans and Democrats in an increasingly tense political battle over his confirmation.

Democrats are seeking documents from Kavanaugh's service from 2001 to 2003 as a White House lawyer under Republican former President George W. Bush. The committee has received about 175,000 pages from the Bush library, but has only publicly released 5,700 pages.

Breitbart News' Ken Klukowski has pointed out that Kavanaugh's opinions have been in the public domain for years and Kavanaugh "returned the most comprehensive, bipartisan Senate questionnaire in the history of the Judiciary Committee".

Democrats have accused Republicans of trying to rush the confirmation process.

[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. "They just don't like the fact that his record shows he is fair, independent and adheres to the Constitution, so they are now resorting to obstruction and gridlock to extend their fishing expedition", Martin said.
