(Worthy News) - Senate Democrats repeatedly interrupted the opening of Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination hearing Tuesday morning in a failed bid to delay proceedings.
Democrats cited the release of approximately 42,000 pages of documents Monday evening from Kavanaugh's work in the George W. Bush White House, and a further 100,000 pages that have not been produced because the White House asserted executive privilege.
Before Monday, 415,000 pages from Kavanaugh's White House service were produced to the Senate Judiciary Committee. The D.C. Circuit Court judge worked in the Bush White House Counsel office from 2001 to 2003, and then as staff secretary from 2003 to 2006. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]
