Kavanaugh Hearing Date Set for September 4 in Senate

Kavanaugh Hearing Date Set for September 4 in Senate

The hearings are expected to last three or four days. Dianne Feinstein of California, the ranking member on the Judiciary Committee, have held off on meeting with Kavanaugh over the document dispute. Senators are scheduled to question Kavanaugh on September 5.

Grassley praised Kavanaugh as a highly respected and qualified nominee.

Carrie Severino, chief counsel and policy director for the Judicial Crisis Network, expects the process to move steadily forward, despite Democrat demands for more time to evaluate Kavanaugh's record. "He's a mainstream judge".

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. "He's met with dozens of senators who have nothing but positive things to say", Grassley said in a statement.

"Liberal Democrats don't need more time to review Judge Kavanaugh's record."

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". This extends the timeline that was set for the committee's consideration of Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, and Neil Gorsuch.

Kavanaugh once helped write the Starr Report, which outlined broad grounds on which to impeach President Clinton for his role in the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

"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".

July 31: Senate Judiciary Democrats request all available documents from Brett Kavanaugh's time in the White House (2001-2006).

The White House, which is determined to have Kavanaugh confirmed before the November elections as Republicans aim to deliver on Trump's priorities, applauded the schedule announcement. "Historically, the Senate has made an effort to consider every public statement or document related to a Supreme Court nominee's career".

Harris, the potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate who sits on the Judiciary Committee, will likely use the confirmation hearing-and the huge national klieg lights that come with it-to elevate her profile with left-wing primary voters ahead of a potential presidential campaign. Democrats' attempts to obstruct Judge Kavanaugh's confirmation will be on fully display. "We look forward to continuing our support for Kavanaugh throughout this process".
