One conservative activist group is calling what it says is a bluff by Democrats regarding Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the latest Supreme Court nominee.

The Judicial Crisis Network (JCN) released a statement on Friday regarding Kavanaugh's nomination to the high court, which has been met with stiff resistance from the left.

"Democrats have already announced that they oppose him, so this claim that they need more time or more documents is nothing more than a show, a fishing expedition designed to obstruct and create gridlock," JCN's chief counsel and policy director Carrie Severino said.

"Judge Kavanaugh has been endorsed by leading figures on the right and the left. He is a mainstream nominee who will base his decisions on the law and the Constitution."

Democrats have asked for mountains of records on Kavanaugh, who has served on the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit since 2006. They have also filed multiple Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests for documents pertaining to Kavanaugh's time in the White House as staff secretary and an associate in the White House Counsel's office.

President Donald Trump nominated Kavanaugh in early July. Democrats immediately pounced and said they would oppose him.

Kavanaugh would replace Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy, who retired from the bench at the end of last month.
