Senate Committee Delays Kavanaugh Vote Until 9/20

The Washington Examiner reports:

The Senate Judiciary Committee pushed a vote on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court until next week, and decided to vote on his nomination for Sept. 20 at 1:45 p.m.

Kavanaugh’s nomination was included on the agenda for Thursday’s committee meeting, and it was expected the panel’s Democratic members would request the nomination be held over for one week.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, started the meeting by announcing Kavanaugh’s nomination would be held for a week. After a few minutes of debate, the committee voted along party lines, 11-10, to set the committee’s vote for Sept. 20 at 1:45 p.m.

More from Politico:

Senate Democrats tried to delay committee business in a last-bid ditch to stall the Supreme Court nominee, but Grassley seized control of the committee upon its opening and immediately moved to tee up a vote on Kavanaugh next week.

Republicans also defeated a Democratic motion to subpoena Kavanaugh’s documents from his time working in the White House.
