National Archives may not finish reviewing Kavanaugh documents before end of October

Kavanaugh tells senators Mueller’s appointment was appropriate report

Pentagon believes Korean War remains "consistent" with Americans Senate Democrats dissatisfied with White House's election security efforts Orrin Hatch: Partisanship over Kavanaugh nomination "dumbass" MORE (Calif.), the ranking member on the Senate Judiciary Committee, will start meeting with the Supreme Court nominee after the Senate reconvenes on August 15, according to a senior Senate Democratic aide.

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.

At Politico Magazine, "liberal Democrat and feminist" Supreme Court practitioner Lisa Blatt calls Kavanaugh "the most qualified conservative for the job" and urges Democrats to "quit attacking Kavanaugh-full stop". "In the end, the committee will have reviewed significantly more records than ever before for a Supreme Court nominee", Foy said. Schumer asked on the Senate floor on Tuesday.

Democrats slammed the decision to press forward with a review of documents they say had been "pre-screened by a political operative and attorney for George W. Bush". But Democrats have criticized that process and the lawyer leading it - former Bush lawyer Bill Burck - as political.

As of now, even though the White House counsel documents alone will reportedly take at least until October to be released, Republicans are planning to force the confirmation hearing in September. Republicans could hold confirmation hearings before receiving all the documents, but a final vote on Kavanaugh may have to wait. "What more do they need to know to vote no?"

A federal law passed in 1988 - crafted with NRA support - bars the manufacture, sale, or possession of an undetectable firearm. Last Friday, the company posted models for seven firearms , racking up tens of thousands of downloads over the next few days.

"Indeed, the Bush Library will produce to us over 125,000 pages today". Gary Stern, the general counsel for the National Archives, wrote Grassley a letter Thursday that said the request could be more than 900,000 pages.

"It's just awesome to me that they make such a farce out of this", Hatch, R-Utah, said at news conference with members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, including Sen. Grassley did not request any additional documents pertaining to Kavanaugh's time as Bush's staff secretary. That is far more than than the 60,000 pages the Archives identified from the White House counsel's office, and the 170,000 emails he either received or sent or was copied on.

Republicans have been hesitant to request those records, however, and have accused Democrats of engaging in stalling tactics.

"We all understand what's going on here", Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, a Texas Republican, told CNN. They are particularly interested in whether Kavanaugh authored or edited documents relating to the Bush administration's controversial enhanced interrogation and warrantless wiretapping programs.
