National Archives Rejects Schumer’s Request For Brett Kavanugh’s Records: GOP Committee Chair Has To Ask

The Hill reports:

The Democratic push to get documents from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s work in Bush administration ran into a new roadblock on Friday.

The National Archives, in a letter to Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), said it will only respond to a request for documents under the Presidential Records Act (PRA) if they come from a committee chairman, who are all Republicans.

The National Archives and Records “remains unable to respond to PRA special access requests from ranking minority members,” Archivist David Ferriero wrote.
