National Archives Says Kavanaugh Doc Request Could Go On Through October

National Archives may not finish reviewing Kavanaugh documents before end of October

They cover Kavanaugh's time in the White House counsel office and his nomination to be a judge.

The Archives will be able to deliver about 300,000 of the requested docs detailing Kavanaugh's tenure in the George W. Bush administration by August 20. As the Washington Post reported, Kavanaugh spent two years in the White House counsel's office and three years as staff secretary.

The agency, which is tasked with preserving and documenting government records, said Thursday in a letter that it would not be able to comply fully with the request from Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) until the "end of October".

"This unprecedented process appears to be designed intentionally by Republicans to deny the Senate and the American people the information they need to evaluate this critically important nomination", Schumer said.

Republicans have protested that the number of documents is more than the number requested for the previous five Supreme Court nominees combined. Republicans could hold confirmation hearings before receiving all the documents, but a final vote on Kavanaugh may have to wait. 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.

Before President Trump selected his nominee, Majority Leader McConnell Senate Majority Leader reportedly warned the White House that Kavanaugh's massive "paper trail" would slow down his confirmation process. Bush. Instead, the GOP has only requested documents from his time in the White House counsel's office from 2001 to 2003. Democrats had also requested more documents from the National Archives from Kavanaugh's time as staff secretary to Bush.

The move comes mere hours after Newcastle announced the signing of Swiss worldwide , Fabian Schär, from Deportivo La Coruña. West Brom defender Ahmed Hegazi has emerged as a target for Newcastle United , according to Bleacher Report's Dean Jones.

And even if one is concerned about this possibility, one solution would be to have the Archives folks review any documents the Bush team says should be withheld.

"I'm exhausted of partisanship and frankly, we didn't treat their candidates for these positions the way they're treating ours", Sen.

But Republicans have requested only a portion of the records, leading Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to accuse Republicans of having "cast aside Democratic wishes for openness and transparency".

"It's just incredible to me that they make such a farce out of this", Hatch, R-Utah, said at news conference with members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, including Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) said at a Capitol Hill press conference on Thursday.

Republicans are calling Democrats' request for more documents a delay tactic, but the letter from the National Archives shows that Kavanaugh's confirmation may be delayed even without Democratic action.
