Senate committee vote on Kavanaugh delayed until next week

Kamala Harris pushes deceptively edited video to smear Brett Kavanaugh. But here’s the truth

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) told reporters that he is aware of the situation, but declined to comment until he saw the letter itself. "This a grave and worrisome prospect given the fact that Judge Kavanaugh is up for a lifetime appointment to our nation's highest court with the potential to change American law for decades to come". "Mr. Guttenberg has suffered an incalculable loss". He says if he had known who Guttenberg was, "I would have shaken his hand, talked to him, and expressed my sympathy. At The National Law Journal (subscription or registration required), Marcia Coyle and Tony Mauro highlight some of Kavanaugh's answers to more than a thousand written questions posed by senators ... in the wake of [Kavanaugh's] confirmation hearing last week".

Democrats have said they want to learn more about whether Kavanaugh played a significant role in controversial policy debates in the Bush White House, including those relating to the treatment of detainees held after the September 11, 2001, attacks.

Under questioning last week, Kavanaugh clarified that while he may have attended meetings and hearing prep sessions, he wasn't the primary White House official assigned to Pryor.

Booker is being criticized for releasing the documents, which the Judiciary Committee is holding on a confidential basis that makes them accessible only to senators.

"And that was from two men, which I think really shows how this is an issue that's not just affecting women", McCammond said.

Senate Democrats also say Kavanaugh was not truthful to the committee when he said he wasn't aware he had received documents obtained by Republican staffers on a server they shared with Democrats during the Bush judicial nomination fights.

"By publicly releasing Committee Confidential records, Sen". Wednesday's disclosure brings the total to 75.

The group president -Tom Fitton - submitted the complaint Wednesday, requesting an investigation into Booker's alleged violation of Senate rules.

Booker has welcomed the fight. Kavanaugh is committed to ending healthcare for people with pre-existing conditions. Kavanaugh had indicated he was not substantially involved in the nomination.

From the very beginning, Kavanaugh's confirmation process has been denounced by Democrats and progressive groups as a "sham" orchestrated by Republicans to keep the public in the dark about crucial components of the judge's extreme right-wing record and to hide substantial evidence that Kavanaugh's previous testimony before the Senate does not hold up to close scrutiny.

The committee was hoping to quickly process Kavanaugh's unusually long paper trail and relied on Bush's lawyer, Bill Burck, to compile the documents, first estimated to be 900,000 pages from Kavanaugh's time in the counsel's office.
