Did the National Archives Throw a Wrench Into Brett Kavanaugh's Confirmation?

What is clear, however, is that if Republicans do find a pretext for ramming Kavanaugh's confirmation through before the midterm elections, they would likely have to do so with incomplete information about his past. But earlier Thursday, he declined to set a date for beginning confirmation hearings, only saying he hoped to start "sometime in September". "In the end, the committee will have reviewed significantly more records than ever before for a Supreme Court nominee", Foy said.

Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said Democrats also object to the Bush library, rather than nonpartisan archives officials, vetting the documents. Chairman Chuck Grassley had asked for Kavanaugh's emails and paper filings from his time as Bush's associate White House counsel, and more documents pertaining to his nomination to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.

Manchin was one of three Democrats to vote for Trump's first Supreme Court nominee and now Justice Neil Gorsuch. "Roughly a million pages are already in the process of being made available".

Standing in front of rows of empty boxes labeled "Kavanaugh files", Hatch and other GOP members of the Senate Judiciary Committee argued that their request to the National Archives would give the Senate more than enough material to adequately evaluate the judge's record in what Grassley called a "fair and thorough process".

"Getting the documents is especially important", said Sen. "What more do they need to know to vote no?"

So far Manchin is the only Democrat who has met with Kavanaugh, with many stating they will outright oppose Kavanaugh because of what they believe could put at risk the abortion-legalizing Roe v. Wade decision and the dismantling of government-run health care, or Obamacare. They are particularly interested in whether Kavanaugh authored or edited documents relating to the Bush administration's controversial enhanced interrogation and warrantless wiretapping programs. They cover Kavanaugh's time in the White House counsel office and his nomination to be a judge.

In a USA Today op-ed Thursday, Hatch wrote that Democrats are trying to "Bork" Kavanaugh. "We're going to see a submission of documents over the next several weeks that will be the equivalent of the documentation that have been submitted in total for the last five Supreme Court nominees". Republicans downplayed the National Archives' announcement, in part because of the separate ongoing Bush review, with a spokesman for Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley signaling the committee still plans to hold confirmation hearings in September. "I'm exhausted of the partisanship and frankly we didn't treat their candidates for these positions the way they're treating ours".
