Confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to begin September 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

If Brett Kavanaugh was fit to be on the Supreme Court, Senate Republicans would have no issue releasing his full records. He wrote, "We believe an indictment should not be pursued while the President is in Office". 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.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh, US President Donald Trump's nominee to be a Supreme Court Justice, will begin his Senate confirmation hearings on September 4, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley announced.

Grassley said he expects the hearing to last three or four days.

Democratic leaders objected to the schedule, since it indicates Republicans have no intention of releasing documents from 2003 to 2006 in time for the hearing. "It's time for the American people to hear directly from Judge Kavanaugh at his public hearing", Grassley said in his statement. More sessions with Democrats are expected to be held in the coming weeks.

His decision making was mixed, but that will get better as the season develops. But Pochettino said: "Score or not score, I don't have doubts about this".

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.), the Judiciary Committee's top Democrat, raised concerns about a "lack of transparency" in releasing Kavanaugh's papers in a new letter to Grassley on Friday. It is the first records from the National Archives released as part of the confirmation process.

"Republicans just announced that they are scheduling a hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh starting on September 4", Harris 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 California Democrat has already indicated on multiple occasions that she will vote against Kavanaugh, tweeting just minutues after his nomination was announced that she "will oppose his nomination to the Supreme Court" because Kavanaugh "represents a direct and fundamental threat to the rights and health care of hundreds of millions of Americans". The committee acknowledged that the Bush screening team decided which records to disclose for public review, a move panned by Democrats. "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".

But Grassley noted in his announcement that his team has reviewed thousands of pages of Kavanaugh's judicial opinions and records from the White House legal service, and the timeline still provides room for review of additional documents.
