Hearings for Supreme Court nominee to start Sept 4

Judge Brett Kavanaugh was nominated on July 9 spurring intense interest in his work as a White House lawyer and with Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr

But Democrats like Harris are trying to claim that they have not had enough time to go on a fishing expedition to examine everything Kavanaugh may have ever written to find something they can use to derail his nomination before the Supreme Court begins its new term on October 1.

The announcement comes amid the release of a trove of documents related to Kavanaugh's time in the White House.

"We believe an indictment should not be pursued while the President is in Office", Kavanaugh wrote. Democrats have warned that Kavanaugh may be unwilling to protect special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible coordination between President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign and Russian Federation.

The Senate Judiciary Committee's confirmation hearing for Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh is scheduled to start on September 4.

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.

Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said he expects the hearings to last a maximum of four days. His confirmation will require a simple majority in the 100-seat Senate, where Republicans hold a 51-49 edge over Democrats and independents.

August 2: Sen. Grassley and Senate Republicans said they are still planning to move forward with Kavanaugh's hearings, even without the vast majority of Kavanaugh's documents. Collins. It's time she put country before party and announce a "no" vote on Kavanaugh. Grassley scheduled the hearings before Kavanaugh's records have been released.

While Democrats have argued that Republicans are rushing the process for the lifetime appointment without proper vetting, Grassley took the opposite position on Friday, adding that at their 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". Dianne Feinstein of California, the ranking member on the Judiciary Committee, have held off on meeting with Kavanaugh over the document dispute.

The Judiciary Committee will hold up to four days of review, with Kavanaugh to begin facing questions on Day 2, September 5, said committee chairman Sen.

White House spokesman Raj Shah said Kavanaugh was looking forward to speaking with Congress, reports CNN. Democrats are particularly pushing for access to his three years as staff secretary for Bush, but Republicans are not including those documents in the review.
