Brett Kavanaugh Hits Hurdle On Road To Supreme Court

Grassley's committee communications director Taylor Foy told TPM in an email, asked about NARA's letter, "Because the George W. Bush Presidential Library has agreed to facilitate an open and transparent process, following the Archives' established nonpartisan document review guidelines, the committee will receive documents in an even more rapid fashion from the Bush Library as the Archives continues its statutory document review". According to the Washington Post, President Bush has authorized making the Kavanaugh documents available, and a group of lawyers, led by Bush's presidential records representative, is reviewing them. "In the end, the committee will have reviewed significantly more records than ever before for a Supreme Court nominee", read a statement from Judiciary Committee staff.

"And if these documents coming from the archives and from George W. Bush's presidential library and other things get up here soon, then the sooner the better we can have a hearing", Grassley said.

And even if one is concerned about this possibility, one solution would be to have the Archives folks review any documents the Bush team says should be withheld. "There never really is going to be enough documents to satisfy them so I think he had to just make a call on what would be a fair line to draw and that's what he did". Bush.
