Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee said Thursday that they'll move forward with the confirmation process for Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump's pick to the Supreme Court, even if they will not have time to review documents pertaining to his work in the George W. Bush administration.

"Please note that we will not be able to complete our review of all of the records that you have requested by August 15, 2018", Stern wrote to Grassley.

"We estimate that we can complete our review of the textual records and the subset of White House Counsel Office emails "from" Kavanaugh (approximately 49,000 emails)-totaling roughly 300,000 pages - by approximately August 20, 2018, and now expect to be able to complete the remaining 600,000 pages by the end of October 2018", National Archives general counsel Gary Stern wrote in the letter addressed to Grassley. Republicans downplayed the National Archives' announcement, in part because of the separate ongoing Bush review, with a spokesman for Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley signaling the committee still plans to hold confirmation hearings in September.

"In the end, the committee will have reviewed significantly more records than ever before for a Supreme Court nominee", Mr. Foy said. It would also give Democratic Senators in red states an excuse for not taking a position on the Kavanaugh nomination before they are up for reelection in early November.

"I want to really complement the Democrats who have stood up and are willing to stand up for Judge Kavanaugh because they realize we can't keep going down this partisan, picky, stupid, dumbass road that has happened around here for so long", he said.

But during his 2006 confirmation hearings to serve on a federal appeals court, Kavanaugh acknowledged playing a role in presidential statements that Bush employed with frequency to accompany legislation he signed into law. Kavanaugh already has the lowest initial net support for confirmation compared with other recent Supreme Court nominees, according to several public opinion polls.

Once Obama announced the nomination, however, Hatch joined the rest of the Republican Party in refusing to hold confirmation hearings for Garland, saying that the nominee should be chosen after the 2016 election, and not by a president who was on his way out of office. Bush. Instead, the GOP has only requested documents from his time in the White House counsel's office from 2001 to 2003.

The documents being reviewed by the National Archives do not include papers related to Kavanaugh's three years as staff secretary to the president, which Democrats have demanded. And Democrats are already citing the Archives' delayed timeline to cry foul on the process. They said Grassley's initial request was sufficient and that senators would have hundreds of thousands of records to review on the nomination even without the staff secretary documents.

"I think it's more than enough for the Democrats to make a rational decision about supporting Judge Kavanaugh", Sen.
