WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley wants Democrats to stop complaining about documents they’ve received pertaining to Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
Grassley is chairing the confirmation hearing later Tuesday for President Donald Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court. The Iowa Republican tells Fox News that there are more documents on Kavanaugh than any other nominee in history. But Democrats say thousands were dumped out in public just hours before the hearing begins, making it impossible for thorough scrutiny.
Monday night, the committee received 42,000 pages of documents about Kavanaugh’s years with the Bush administration, prompting complaints from Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer. Democrats have also complained that they have not received all relevant documents from Kavanaugh’s work with previous administrations.
