National Archives Says Kavanaugh Doc Request Could Go On Through October

National Archives Says Kavanaugh Doc Request Could Go On Through October”

So far Manchin is the only Democrat who has met with Kavanaugh, with many stating they will outright oppose Kavanaugh because of what they believe could put at risk the abortion-legalizing Roe v. Wade decision and the dismantling of government-run health care, or Obamacare.

Democrats are requesting that hundreds of thousands of pages of documents from Kavanaugh's time in the White House Counsel Office under President George W. Bush be reviewed before the confirmation goes forward. "And that's exactly what I plan to do, just as I have for other Supreme Court nominees, including Justice Gorsuch". And Democrats are already citing the Archives' delayed timeline to cry foul on the process.

Democrats say the documents they are requesting, including the staff secretary papers, are crucial to understanding all aspects Kavanaugh's background, particular his role in forming policy under Bush.

Grassley's committee communications director Taylor Foy told TPM in an email, asked about NARA's letter, "Because the George W. Bush Presidential Library has agreed to facilitate an open and transparent process, following the Archives' established nonpartisan document review guidelines, the committee will receive documents in an even more rapid fashion from the Bush Library as the Archives continues its statutory document review".

"Those are documents that presumably our colleagues have looked at, but they haven't found much in it to build a case against the nominee so now they've chose to take it down a different path, which I believe is more of a stall tactic than anything else", said Tillis.

There are two separate reviews of documents happening simultaneously: One by the Bush team and another by the National Archives.

Hoeven's office said he'll meet with Kavanaugh Wednesday afternoon. "We're going to see a submission of documents over the next several weeks that will be the equivalent of the documentation that have been submitted in total for the last five Supreme Court nominees".

"If you were to stack up all these pages, it'd be taller than Big Ben, taller than the Statue of Liberty, taller than the US Capitol", Tillis pointed out.

The term Bork - recognized in the Oxford American Dictionary since 2002 - refers to what Hatch called the "unprecedented campaign of character assassination" waged against Judge Robert Bork during his 1987 Supreme Court confirmation hearing. "I'm sick and exhausted of it to be honest with you".
