Brett Kavanaugh's Confirmation Hearings to Begin September 4

Supreme Court building in the background Supreme Court nominee judge Brett Kavanaugh arrives prior to meeting with Senate Majority Leader Mitch Mc Connell on Capitol Hill in Washington U.S

"Judge Kavanaugh looks forward to addressing the Judiciary Committee in public hearings for the American people to view". Democrats have warned that Kavanaugh may be unwilling to protect special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election. He wrote, "We believe an indictment should not be pursued while the President is in Office".

The Senate Judiciary Committee will being confirmation hearings for U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on September 4, committee chairman Charles Grassley said in a statement Friday.

Carrie Severino, chief counsel and policy director for the Judicial Crisis Network, expects the process to move steadily forward, despite Democrat demands for more time to evaluate Kavanaugh's record.

Thus, he is definitely a huge threat for the Manchester City defence, likely to be led by English global John Stones. Playmaker David Silva could also feature after sitting out at Wembley and goalkeeper Ederson will return.

If he is confirmed, Kavanaugh would take over the seat vacated by Anthony Kennedy, who retired at the end of July. The Judiciary Committee said they only plan to release 125,000 documents total. "It's time for the American people to hear directly from Judge Kavanaugh".

So far, the committee has made public Kavanaugh's 17,000-page questionnaire and his more than 300 court cases as an appellate judge. The committee has received about 175,000 pages from the Bush library, but has only publicly released 5,700 pages. "The committee shouldn't hold a hearing before we've had a chance to review his entire record". The Archives produced the Starr files. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, last month. Dianne Feinstein of California, said scheduling the hearing before the documents are ready "is not only unprecedented but a new low in Republican efforts to stack the courts".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said earlier Friday in a radio interview that he hopes Kavanaugh would be confirmed by the Senate "before the first Monday in October".

Djokovic and Nadal progress in Canada
Meanwhile, Rafael Nadal battled past an improving Stan Wawrinka, withstanding some of the Swiss player's best tennis in months. Play was also suspended in the match between world number one Simona Halep of Romania and Russia's Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova.

The White House on Friday welcomed the news of a set date for confirmation hearings. Kavanaugh himself described his time as Staff Secretary as "among the most instructive" experiences to his work as a federal court judge. Democrats have demanded all the documents from Kavanaugh's time at the White House for review ahead of his confirmation, which Republicans have called a "fishing expedition" and a "delay tactic" for a nominee who some Republicans say some Democrats have no intention of considering.

But Grassley noted in his announcement that his team has reviewed thousands of pages of Kavanaugh's judicial opinions and records from the White House legal service, and the timeline still provides room for review of additional documents. "This is not how the Senate should approve a nominee for a lifetime appointment to the highest court in the land", said Sen.
