Democrats raise alarm over White House decision to withhold Kavanaugh documents

Klobuchar complained about decisions that have blocked access to or shielded use of documents concerning the several years Kavanaugh spent as a White House aide in President George W. Bush's administration.

Klobuchar argued that the documents stemming from Kavanaugh's time in the Bush White House could "strongly bolster the arguments that I could make" on whether the appellate court judge is qualified to serve on the Supreme Court. "We ask, of course, Judge Kavanaugh, what do you think?"

"Stay in the room, demand answers and keep pointing out that they have not given the material that was expected to the committee", Biden, a former chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, told reporters Monday as he attended a Labor Day parade in Pittsburgh.

The Trump administration will withhold 100,000 pages of documents related to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's White House service, citing executive privilege.

"There is a reason that support for Roe is at a historic high while support for Kavanaugh is at a historic low: The American public understands what is at stake with this vote", Roland said. "If it were up to me, states would make these decisions ― not the Supreme Court".

Kavanaugh, who has championed pro-life views, has not said whether he believes the case was decided correctly, and he is not likely to do so during the hearings.

"There is a serious question as to whether this president, given the opportunity, will end the Mueller investigation, something which most Republicans and the overwhelming majority of Americans say would be a serious mistake", Sen.

Most independent Supreme Court analysts predict, based on hundreds of decisions that Kavanaugh has written at the appellate court level, that Kavanaugh, if confirmed, would most often side with conservatives, rather than provide the swing vote that Kennedy often did on key issues favoring liberal interpretations of US law.

"What's the point of even Democrats showing up", Fallon reportedly said.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Republican, said as long as Judge Kavanaugh doesn't bungle the hearings, he will be confirmed with some Democrats joining Republicans.

Approximately 267,000 pages of Kavanaugh documents from his time serving Bush will be released with the remaining 100,000 documents remaining classified. It said that 440,500 documents were produced in relation to Kavanaugh, compared with 182,000 for Justice Neil Gorsuch, 173,000 for Justice Elena Kagan and just 6,350 for Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
