Brett Kavanaugh's Confirmation Hearings to Begin September 4

He wrote, "We believe an indictment should not be pursued while the President is in Office". The hearing is expected to run four days. Democrats have warned that Kavanaugh may be unwilling to protect special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Updated at 4:19 p.m. | The Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a three- or four- day confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh starting September 4, Chairman Charles E. Grassley, R-Iowa, announced on Friday.

But Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, who has promised to fight Kavanaugh's nomination, said in a statement that Republicans were in a "mad rush" to hold hearings after deciding to block almost all of Kavanaugh's records from public release. "It's time for the American people to hear directly from Judge Kavanaugh at his public hearing". But Democrats want access to more documents from Kavanaugh's past as a judge and as an official in the George W. Bush administration.

If he is confirmed, Kavanaugh would take over the seat vacated by Anthony Kennedy, who retired at the end of July. "At this current pace, we have plenty of time to review the rest of emails and other records that we will receive from President Bush and the National Archives".

"Rather than being honest and forthright with the American people about Donald Trump's extreme nominee for the Supreme Court, Senator Grassley and Senate Republicans are trying to rush Brett Kavanaugh through before anyone can see the full truth about his views". Grassley scheduled the hearings before Kavanaugh's records have been released. The committee acknowledged that the Bush screening team decided which records to disclose for public review, a move panned by Democrats.

August 2: Former President George W. Bush revealed he is working with William A. Burck - a right-wing political operative who served as a deputy to Kavanaugh in 2005 and is now the attorney representing Steve Bannon, Reince Priebus, and Donald McGahn in the Russian Federation probe - to vet which documents from Kavanaugh's record are released to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

"Scheduling a hearing in early September, while more than 99 percent of Kavanaugh's records are still unavailable, is not only unprecedented but a new low in Republican efforts to stack the courts", said California Senator Dianne Feinstein, the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee. But thousands of pages - which are a fraction of all the documents from Kavanaugh's tenure as Bush's associate White House counsel - that have already been given to the committee are still considered "committee confidential", which means no one outside the panel's senators and staff can review them.

White House spokesman Raj Shah said Kavanaugh was looking forward to speaking with Congress, reports CNN.
