Kavanaugh Confirmation hearings to begin in September

Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley (R-IA) announced on Friday that he will hold hearings on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination for the U.S. Supreme Court on September 4 through 7, giving the Senate time to confirm him before the Supreme Court begins its annual term on October 1.

Opening statements from Kavanaugh and the senators on the committee will take place September 4.

The senators will then question the nominee on September 5. The final part of the hearings will include testimony from national leaders in the legal community.

Democrats are expressing outrage at the schedule, saying that they have not had enough time or material to vet President Trump’s nominee, but those objections fall apart on the facts. Grassley has presided over the most thorough vetting of any Supreme Court justice in U.S. history, and he says it is now time for his committee to prepare for public hearings.

Kavanaugh has served on the U.S. Court of Appeals for 12 years. During that time he has authored 307 opinions, totaling 4,800 pages. He has also joined hundreds more, for a total of over 6,400 pages of additional judicial opinions.
