Brett Kavanaugh

Grassley has previously said Kavanaugh's vetting process is probably the "deepest dive" ever conducted on a Supreme Court nominee.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley has officially released the dates for Judge Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing to become the next justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. "He's a mainstream judge".

"My team has already reviewed every page of the over 4,800 pages of judicial opinions Judge Kavanaugh wrote, over 6,400 pages of opinions he joined, more than 125,000 pages of records produced from his White House legal service, and over 17,000 pages in response to the most comprehensive questionnaire ever submitted to a nominee".

Sen. Chuck Grassley, the Republican chairman of the Judiciary Committee, says the committee will launch up to four days of review that Tuesday, beginning with opening remarks from senators.

"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", he said.

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.

On Friday, Schumer blasted Grassley's decision to announce a confirmation hearing as a "mad rush" amid the ongoing dispute over Kavanaugh's records. Collins. It's time she put country before party and announce a "no" vote on Kavanaugh. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, last month.

Leading Democrats in the Senate immediately questioned Republicans' motives for the timing of the confirmation hearing. "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. Senate Democrats have railed against the process of releasing Kavanaugh's documents, arguing that they should be privy to documents from Kavanaugh's tenure as staff secretary in the Bush Administration. The committee has received about 175,000 pages from the Bush library, but has only publicly released 5,700 pages. "Judge Kavanaugh looks forward to addressing the Judiciary Committee in public hearings for the American people to view".

In a new video and report, HRC explains why understanding Kavanaugh's record at the White House is important; during these years, former President George W. Bush pressed for a Constitutional amendment banning same-sex couples from marrying and opposed hate crimes legislation. This process gives an unfair advantage to senators supporting Judge Kavanaugh's nomination, at the expense of a fully transparent process that allows for full disclosure and scrutiny by all voting lawmakers.
