Kavanaugh Confirmation Hearings Will Begin Sept. 4

Supreme Court building in the background Supreme Court nominee judge Brett Kavanaugh arrives prior to meeting with Senate Majority Leader Mitch Mc Connell on Capitol Hill in Washington U.S

Hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh are now set to start on September 4, according to the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Chuck Grassley.

That means the marathon hearing will begin the Tuesday after Labor Day. They want to wait on a vote until they get access to a trove of records from Kavanaugh's time in the George W. Bush administration.

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.

White House spokesman Raj Shah praised Grassley for his review of Kavanaugh's career and the upcoming hearings.

"The President's hit a home run again, just like he did with Neil Gorsuch a year ago", McConnell told WKDZ Radio.

Ben Chiwell: Manchester United target Harry Maguire won’t move in January
The Red Devils were linked with Alderwerield, Leicester's Harry Maguire and Bayern Munich's Jerome Boateng. Nigerian worldwide Kelechi Iheanacho has warned Manchester United he has them in his sights again.

"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", Grassley said.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) said Friday that he expected the Senate to confirm Kavanaugh.

Grassley, R-Iowa, said there's "plenty of time" to review documents but now it's time for Americans "to hear directly" from Kavanaugh. Grassley's aides have said they expect to release more of those papers on a rolling basis.

The top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, Sen. "Not only is a massively conflicted Republican lawyer, who previously worked for Judge Kavanaugh, cherry-picking what documents the Senate Judiciary Committee can see, he is now telling the Committee what the rest of the Senate and the American public can see - and Republicans are playing along". Kavanaugh himself described his time as Staff Secretary as "among the most instructive" experiences to his work as a federal court judge. His confirmation will require a simple majority in the 100-seat Senate, where Republicans hold a 51-49 edge over Democrats and independents.

"Republicans" mad rush to hold this hearing after unilaterally deciding to block almost all of Judge Kavanaugh's records from public release is further evidence that they are hiding important information from the American people, and continues to raise the question, "What are they hiding?'" Schumer said in a statement.
