Republicans announced hearings will begin on Sept 4th. Let’s recap how the Senate GOP’s blatant and historic obstruction of Judge Kavanaugh's record is denying both the Senate & the American people access to critical information about a potential Supreme Court justice.

The GOP is deliberately withholding the entire record of Judge Kavanaugh’s 3 years as Staff Secretary– the most senior position he held in the Bush Admin & a job Kavanaugh himself said was “formative” & “instructive” as preparation for being a judge

When Justice Kagan, who had served in key positions in prior administrations much like Judge Kavanaugh, was nominated, our Republican colleagues demanded her entire paper history. We're asking that the same standard apply today.

Republicans are concealing the vast majority of Judge Kavanaugh’s White House record from the public – and relying on Kavanaugh’s former deputy to screen his record instead of the National Archives! ?
