US Political News: Feinstein – Republicans Rushing Supreme Court Hearing to Avoid Transparency
Washington—Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) Friday released the following statement on the Senate Judiciary Committee scheduling confirmation hearings for Brett Kavanaugh in early September, almost two months before his White House records will be available:
“It’s clear that Republicans want to speed this nomination through before we know who Brett Kavanaugh is. This is not how the Senate should approve a nominee for a lifetime appointment to the highest court in the land.
“Scheduling a hearing in early September, while more than 99 percent of Kavanaugh’s White House records are still unavailable, is not only unprecedented but a new low in Republican efforts to stack the courts.
