Some Democrats, triggered by hundreds of thousands of newly released documents from the Bush library, are eager to return to Kavanaugh’s White House years to further probe his service there and question whether his congressional testimony in 2006 was fully transparent.
They could delve into such issues as the war on terrorism, the controversial use of signing statements, Kavanaugh’s work on judicial nominees, and executive orders — highlighting the conservative credentials of a nominee who they fear could solidify the rightward tilt of the Supreme Court for decades.
🚨🚨 The Senate was just given an additional 42,000 pages of Kavanaugh documents the NIGHT BEFORE his confirmation hearing. This underscores just how absurd this process is. Not a single senator will be able to review these records before tomorrow.
