Kamala Harris: Sept. 4 Kavanaugh Confirmation Hearing ‘Outrageous’

President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh

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. Democrats have warned that Kavanaugh may be unwilling to protect special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

They show that Kavanaugh drafted an "Overall Plan" to colleagues in 1998 providing his thoughts on bringing the independent counsel office's work to a close. "Concerned Women for America's "Women for Kavanaugh" six-state bus tour spent time this week at Senator Grassley's town halls in Iowa, and we saw how enthusiastic Americans - especially women - are about Judge Kavanaugh's nomination", Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America, said.

The Senate Judiciary Committee announced on Friday that it will hold its confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh early next month. Sen.

The hearing will begin on Tuesday, September 4 and is expected to span three or four days.

Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn criticized Democrats who oppose Kavanaugh's confirmation in a statement. "He'll get confirmed", he told the radio station WKDZ. Kavanaugh will face questioning starting September 5. Chuck Grassley. Kavanaugh's appearance will be followed by testimony from legal experts and people who know the judge.

"During his time in the Bush White House, Brett Kavanaugh nearly certainly was involved with numerous legal and policy issues that impact the lives and rights of LGBTQ people, including hate crimes legislation, non-discrimination protections for federal workers, and a proposed Constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage in every state", said HRC Associate Legal Director Robin Maril.

On Friday, Schumer blasted Grassley's decision to announce a confirmation hearing as a "mad rush" amid the ongoing dispute over Kavanaugh's records.

The new documents Friday provide a glimpse into Kavanaugh's years on the Starr team shuttling back and forth to Little Rock for "investigative purposes".

White House spokesman Raj Shah said Kavanaugh was looking forward to speaking with Congress, reports CNN. At this current pace, we have plenty of time to review the rest of emails and other records that we will receive from President Bush and the National Archives.

Kavanaugh has amassed a solidly conservative judicial record as an appeals court judge for 12 years. Dianne Feinstein of California, said scheduling the hearing before the documents are ready "is not only unprecedented but a new low in Republican efforts to stack the courts". But due to the 51-49 split in the Senate, Republicans will need to be almost unanimous, or persuade a few Democrats, if they want Kavanaugh to be confirmed.

Nan Aron, president of the Alliance for Justice, called it "jaw-dropping".
