Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, said that the archives letter “confirms our worst fears” that you may be limited to the documents requested by the Republicans, because they will Act shielded by the Bush-lawyer under the President-criticism.
“This unprecedented process seems designed to deny intentionally by the Republicans, the Senate and the American people the information they need to evaluate this critically important nomination,” said Schumer.
At the Thursday press conference, Grassley and other Senate blasted Republicans, the Democrats, the claims of delay tactics.

“What you need to know to vote no?” Grassley said.
“It’s just amazing to me, you make such a farce,” said Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah. He urged the Senate not more “at the bottom of this partisan, picky, stupid”.
Sen. Thom Tillis, R-N. C., said that the documents would already searched stack as high as the Capitol dome. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, have said they would miles miles routes 11.9 — “Kavanaughtical”, he called them.

Kavanaugh had previously suggested that such investigations, a President could rule hinder the ability to.
As Kavanaugh’s visits with senators on Capitol Hill that he has met with 47 senators so far, all but one of them Republicans — questions about his approach to the special counsel law have been raised, the senators said.
Tillis said Kavanaugh had “a good job” in dealing with the issue.
Grassley said it was his belief that Müller should be allowed to complete his probe.
Democrats said the additional documents requested were critical to the understanding of all aspects of Kavanaugh’s background.
