Kavanaugh shows stance on indicting president

President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh

Judge Brett Kavanaugh was nominated on July 9, spurring intense interest in his work as a White House lawyer and with Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr.

The National Archives and Records Administration released the documents Friday.

"We believe an indictment should not be pursued while the President is in Office", Kavanaugh wrote. Democrats have warned that Kavanaugh may be unwilling to protect special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election. "He's met with dozens of senators who have nothing but positive things to say", Grassley said in a statement. Kavanaugh will face questioning starting September 5.

Democrats have accused Republicans of trying to rush the confirmation process. "It's time for the American people to hear directly from Judge Kavanaugh at his public hearing".

"Democrats have already announced that they oppose him, so this claim that they need more time or more documents is nothing more than a show, a fishing expedition designed to obstruct and create gridlock", she said.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said earlier Friday in a radio interview that he hopes Kavanaugh would be confirmed by the Senate "before the first Monday in October".

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.), the Judiciary Committee's top Democrat, raised concerns about a "lack of transparency" in releasing Kavanaugh's papers in a new letter to Grassley on Friday.

White House spokesman Raj Shah said Kavanaugh was looking forward to speaking with Congress, reports CNN.

The Judiciary Committee will hold up to four days of review, with Kavanaugh to begin facing questions on Day 2, September 5, said committee chairman Sen.

The Kavanaugh confirmation process is moving ahead with hearings now scheduled for next month. Meanwhile, most of the White House records related to Kavanaugh are being held on a "committee confidential" basis, with just 5,700 pages from his White House years released this week to the public.

August 8: Sen. Blumenthal and Senate Judiciary Committee Democrats file a Freedom of Information Act request seeking release all of Kavanaugh's White House documents.

Breitbart News' Ken Klukowski has pointed out that Kavanaugh's opinions have been in the public domain for years and Kavanaugh "returned the most comprehensive, bipartisan Senate questionnaire in the history of the Judiciary Committee".

But Grassley noted in his announcement that his team has reviewed thousands of pages of Kavanaugh's judicial opinions and records from the White House legal service, and the timeline still provides room for review of additional documents.
