Kavanaugh Hearing Date Set for September 4 in Senate

It's Official The Date for Judge Kavanaugh's Supreme Court Hearing Has Been Set

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

Confirmation hearings for U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh will begin on September 4, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley announced in a statement on Friday.

The memo, tucked toward the end of almost 10,000 pages released Friday, provides greater insight into Kavanaugh's views on executive power that are expected to feature prominently in his Senate confirmation hearings. "He's a mainstream judge".

Grassley said the committee has received more than 184,000 pages of records from Kavanaugh's work as a White House lawyer and for his work for Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr.

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.

"My colleagues should be a "no" on this nominee unless Judge Kavanaugh specifically commits that he will recuse himself on any issues that involve President Trump's personal financial dealings or the special counsel", said Sen.

"As I said after his nomination, Judge Kavanaugh is one of the most respected jurists in the country and one of the most qualified nominees ever to be considered by the Senate for a seat on our highest court", Grassley said.

The Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday did begin releasing a small slice of documents related to Kavanaugh's work in the early 2000s for Bush, including the administration's response to the September 11 attacks. "Judge Kavanaugh has been endorsed by leading figures on the Right and the Left".

Carrie Severino, chief counsel and policy director for the Judicial Crisis Network, which has already launched ads in support of Kavanaugh's confirmation, said the Democrats' anger was just their attempt to stall the nomination. He has been on Capitol Hill throughout the months of July and August meeting with Republican and Democrat Senators. The committee also expects to receive hundreds of thousands of additional pages of Executive Branch documents. Of that small portion, only 5,800 non-substantive documents were released publicly.

"The transparent stall tactics and now thinly-veiled attacks on Judge Kavanaugh's character only underscore the strength of the choice President Trump has made", Cornyn said.

The Archives has said its review of some 1 million pages of Kavanaugh records the committee requested will not be fully available until the end of October.
