Senate Democrats demand 100,000 withheld Kavanaugh records

Democrats on Saturday slammed what they described as a "Friday night document massacre" after the White House withheld more than 100,000 pages of Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh's records, citing presidential privilege.

With attempts to attack Brett M. Kavanaugh's record failing, Democrats over the weekend mounted a last-ditch bid to derail his confirmation to the Supreme Court by claiming that the vetting process is so bad that it demands a do-over.

Bush's attorney, Bill Burck, told the Senate Judiciary Committee that all requested documents had been compiled.

Klobuchar complained about decisions that have blocked access to or shielded use of documents concerning the several years Kavanaugh spent as a White House aide in President George W. Bush's administration.

Liberal activists have warned that a vote for Kavanaugh could mean an end to protections for abortion rights and would establish an "imperial presidency" with no checks on Trump. Graham said on "Fox News Sunday". They've exerted their executive power - 148,000 documents that I've seen, that you can not see, because they won't allow us to make them public.

"I think it's much more powerful if we go in there and ask the questions".

Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee urged Democrats not to discuss confidential materials during the committee's upcoming confirmation hearings. "But it happened because we were so frustrated because President Obama wasn't able to get his nominees, but I think we would have been in a better place now", she said on NBC's "Meet the Press". "What are they trying so desperately to hide?" In an attempt at government obstruction, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) requested that only about 900,000 of pages of the millions available be made available to Congress.

"It would certainly bolster the arguments I could make", Klobuchar said.

Burck said he has given the committee "every reviewable" document that he received except those that fell into exemptions that included "presidential records protected by constitutional privilege". John McCain and Russell D. Feingold.

He also said that limits on contributions to candidates "have some constitutional problems".

Schumer's office said it was the first time in history a president has used executive privilege to block the release of presidential records to the Senate during a Supreme Court nomination.
