Republicans Have Reviewed Very Little Of Kavanaugh’s Records
August 28, 2018
Senate Republicans are trying to rush through the confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh by holding his hearing before the Senate is able to review the full subset of records that Senator Grassley has requested.
In fact, the Senate has reviewed less than half of the subset of records that Grassley requested, and Republicans still refuse to release any of the records from Kavanaugh’s time as White House staff secretary. What are Republicans trying to hide?
Senator Grassley said his staff has reviewed 430,000 pages of Kavanaugh’s records ahead of his hearing next week.
That is less than half of the more than 900,000 pages Senator Grassley requested. The rest won’t be made available before Kavanaugh’s hearing.
The few records that have been turned over were pre-screened by a Republican lawyer who used to work for Kavanaugh. The Senate will likely see zero records from the National Archives before Kavanaugh’s hearing.
Senate Republicans still refuse to release 560,000 documents from Kavanaugh’s time as White House staff secretary.
