Barrasso: Schumer, Dems 'Delay, Distract' Kavanaugh Confirmation

(Fox News' "America's Newsroom")

By    |   Wednesday, 29 August 2018 03:30 PM

Hearings for Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation will begin next Tuesday, just after the Labor Day holiday, but Democrats, led by Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, are doing all they can to "delay and distract" the proceedings with their demands for documents about him, Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., said Wednesday.

"They have over a half million pages of documents, more than twice the number of documents that any other Supreme Court nominee has ever produced,"Barrasso told Fox News' "America's Newsroom." "There are 300 court case reviews that Justice Kavanaugh has written that they have reviewed. They want more documents, but so many of the Democrats came out opposing Judge Kavanaugh, even opposing any nominee from President [Donald] Trump. They were saying that before the nominee was even named."

Schumer, D-NY, has already said he would do all he could to stop the Kavanaugh nomination, Barrasso added, so it does n0t seem like more documents would make a difference.

At any rate, he said, Kavanaugh will answer questions honestly and then there will be a vote in September, with an eye on confirming him by Oct. 1, when the court convenes for its new term, Barrasso said.

But if these were "respectful times," Barrasso said Kavanaugh would be confirmed quickly, with 100 votes.

"These are not the respectful times," the senator said. "Judge Kavanaugh is ready to go, he is well respected, highly qualified, a mainstream judge and will be seated on the Supreme Court on Oct. 1."
