Testimony by those who know Judge Kavanaugh the best, outside legal experts, and the American Bar Association is expected to follow.

The committee has received the largest number of Executive Branch records ever for the consideration of a Supreme Court nominee, according to the press release sent by Grassley's office.

"BuzzFeed News reported Friday that Kavanaugh authored a 1995 memo to Independent Counsel Ken Starr, who led an investigation into the Clinton White House, stating that a president should be treated no differently than anyone else for the purposes of a subpoena".

He further touted the nominee as a mainstream judge with a record of "applying the law as it is written". "Judge Kavanaugh looks forward to addressing the Judiciary Committee in public hearings for the American people to view", White House spokesman Raj Shah said in a statement Friday following the announcement. "They seem to be more frightened of this nominee's record and history than any we've ever considered". "Not only is a massively conflicted Republican lawyer, who previously worked for Judge Kavanaugh, cherry-picking what documents the Senate Judiciary Committee can see, he is now telling the Committee what the rest of the Senate and the American public can see - and Republicans are playing along". "These records will be reviewed in addition to the 307 cases in which Judge Kavanaugh wrote an opinion as an appeals court judge, the hundreds more opinions he joined, and the more than 17,500 pages of material he provided in response to the committee's bipartisan questionnaire". This extends the timeline that was set for the committee's consideration of Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, and Neil Gorsuch.

Senate Republicans hope to have Kavanaugh confirmed by early October, Mitch McConnell said this week, which would put him on the court in time for the start of its new term.

Trump nominated Kavanaugh to the high court last month to fill the spot of retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Democrats, led by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY and Sen. "Historically, the Senate has made an effort to consider every public statement or document related to a Supreme Court nominee's career".

The government watchdogs are deeply disturbed by recent reports that Senate Republicans have negotiated a deal with former President George W. Bush for only partial release of Kavanaugh documents in Bush's presidential library, over the objections of Senate Democrats. Democrats' attempts to obstruct Judge Kavanaugh's confirmation will be on fully display.
